Solex products provide lower power consumption, little to no emissions and zero product degradation making it the ideal solution for urea producers globally. These benefits stem from Solex’s proprietary indirect plate heat exchange technology that cools the urea as it moves slowly through the unit. Unlike more traditional methods, air is not used to directly cool the fertilizer resulting in a more energy efficient process. This also eliminates the need for unnecessary air handling equipment and the associated air emissions from the plant.
