Waste water treatment

Plastic heat exchangers in wastewater treatment

Heat exchangers play a crucial role in wastewater treatment as they ensure heat transfer for various applications such as sludge digestion, anaerobic digestion and cooling of the wastewater. However, metal heat exchangers have considerable disadvantages when it comes to wastewater treatment.

Wastewater in itself often contains corrosive substances, chemicals and impurities that can accelerate the deterioration of metallic units. However, cleaning and maintaining metal heat exchangers is even more of a laborious task, as deposits can form that can only be removed using chemical processes and cleaning agents.

Solution for efficient wastewater treatment processes

Heat exchangers from CALORPLAST are made entirely of plastic and are therefore insensitive to waste water and chemical cleaning agents. In addition, the non-reactive material and smooth surfaces effectively minimize fouling, which also ensures the efficiency of the units and reduces operating costs.
CALORPLAST products can be used to treat different process types and steps. From the cooling of large intermediate tanks to direct installation in existing pipelines, our products have been used in the treatment of wastewater for many decades.

The plastic heat exchangers from CALORPLAST offer significant advantages in wastewater treatment compared to conventional metal systems. They resist corrosive components in waste water, reduce maintenance work and costs and improve overall efficiency thanks to their fouling-resistant properties. These properties make them an ideal solution for sustainable and efficient wastewater treatment processes. They also help to reduce operating costs and support environmental friendliness in wastewater management.
