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
