Heating and Cooling Polymers

The Solex heat exchanger is capable of handling any relatively free-flowing powder or crystalline bulk solids, making it the perfect candidate to heat and cool polymers. Our exchangers heat and cool to uniform temperatures while using up to 90% less energy. Controlling the temperature of the polymer is an important step in maintaining product quality and ensuring a consistent capacity. Solex technology is suitable for a variety of polymer applications including cooling pellets, maintaining ideal product temperatures and de-volatizing pellets.

Watch how the Solex heat exchanger works to heat and cool polymers:

Polymers used in our exchanger include:

  • PE (Powder and Pellets)
  • PP (Powder and Pellets)
  • PA
  • PC
  • PET
  • PVC
  • TPU
  • EPR
  • ABS
  • POM
  • EVOH
