Falling film

A method for recovering heat from, process water, is to use a Falling Film heat exchanger.

This heat exchanger consists of a number of vertical pillow plates and a water distribution system.
The distribution system leads the process liquid down past the pillow plates so the energy is transferred to the medium because of the film/adhesive effect.

The design of the product, combined with a production completely in stainless steel, optimises and guarantees a high efficiency in the heat transfer as well as in the hygiene aspect. This is very important, because a Falling film is often used in industries that handles production of food.
