Up to date with kelvion
District cooling stations, high-rise building cold supply or data center cooling - gasketed plate heat exchangers for these applications require peak performance in terms of heat transfer whilst withstanding high system pressure. The new Kelvion plate size NP250L is tailored to meet these requirements, thanks to an extremely narrow plate gap and a smaller pitch.
Kelvion has merged its pioneering, market-leading double tube safety technology with its compact fin system to produce the new ComFinSafety heat exchanger. This system, developed by our engineers from different product lines, offers major advantages for applications requiring high safety levels, combined with a compact design and, crucially, where the media properties are significantly different, such as oil cooling by water.
Kelvion has won a contract of approximately 9MEuro for the supply of several K⁰Bloc, Kelvion compact welded plate heat exchangers, to a refinery group in Asia. The units will support the group’s aim of increasing production capacity by 150% and reaching 360,000 barrels per day capacity as target of the modernization program.
Since 2014, the Stifterverband has been honouring research-based companies with the "Innovative through Research" seal in recognition of their special contribution to the state and society. Kelvion MCS (Machine Cooling Systems) sites Herne and Monzingen have been awarded the seal that enhances their creative and innovative research and development activities.
In brewing, the gap width of a heat exchanger depends on the type of beer being produced. Simple, top-fermented beers require coolers with gaps of around 3mm, which are too narrow for well-hopped varieties. The turbidity would unreliably pass the cooler and, in the worst-case scenario, lead to a complete blockage.
High performance and excellent heat transfer even at low temperature differences – these are essential requirements for heat exchangers in power plants, steel production and district heating and cooling network or for cooling data centers.
Since the beginning of the current situation, our number one priority has been, and continues to be, the health and wellbeing of all our employees, business partners, and their families around the world. We are rigorously following the WHO recommendations and local governments’ guidance.
Kelvion has refined the K°Bloc fully-welded plate heat exchanger to further enhance its reliability and efficiency. Designed and made in Germany, K°Bloc plays a leading role in Kelvion’s package of sustainable solutions, working across a broad range of iquids, temperatures and pressures. It is ideally suited to the demands of the oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical industries for separating mixtures of oil, water and solids.
When Otto Happel senior founded the Gesellschaft für Entstaubungs-Anlagen (GEA) in Bochum in 1920, he laid the foundation for a continuing success story. Today, 100 years later, Kelvion is a global player in the heat exchanger business with over 5,000 employees and 47 locations worldwide. It is celebrating its centenary this year under the motto "Embrace our past. Build our future.".
