Heating and Cooling Processing

Heating & Cooling Processes

Multi-phase thermal systems sometimes require complementary steps prior to or following the primary operation. In solid-state polymerization of polyester, a pre-heater brings the crystallized pellets to final reaction temperature prior to the polymerization step. Following this step, material needs to be cooled to facilitate storage and packaging. In other reaction-based processes, we may utilize a cooling device to immediately halt a thermal reaction, to avoid any negative effect of over-reaction while returning material to a stable temperature. Our cooling operations vary across direct and indirect thermal, utilizing either chilled air or gas in direct thermal cooling, or a chilled jacketed vessel in indirect thermal cooling. Each product comes with its own advantages, providing a range of benefits depending on your exact process.

In theory, each of our thermal products can be utilized as a heater or cooler. However, not all are perfectly suitable for each and every situation. We have over 100 years of experience designing full process systems with complementary value-added heating and cooling operations. Each option is available for testing either individually, or as part of a fully simulated continuous process system in our Process Development Center.
