Fertilizers & Phosphates

Optimized Fertilizer Cooling

The Solex heat exchanger guarantees highly efficient thermal performance and ongoing reliable operation for cooling fertilizer without product caking.  The unit is designed for long-term operation without the need for regular cleaning as the unit prevents the formation of condensation and therefore product caking.

Each unit is custom designed taking into account:

• Type of fertilizer

• Required thermal performance

• Local ambient conditions

• Selection of optimum water temperatures

• Selection of optimum purge air flow rate and dewpoint to prevent condensation
