Recently, Gea Ecoflex
- now Kelvion - presented the Bloksma FlowBox
, a high-performance maritime cooler that combines the benefits of both coolers and plate heat exchangers
The Bloksma FlowBox offers high-performance tugs, freighters, dredges and supply vessels. Regarding stationary service, FlowBox allows a greater cooling capacity than conventional cooling boxes with the same dimensions. To achieve these benefits, the forced circulation controlled by cooled sea water demand is implemented.
U-shaped heat exchangers found within the FlowBox ensure an effective heat exchange with seawater. Therefore, they are designed to withstand temperatures up to 94°C and operating pressures of 4 bar. Thus, once seawater enters the cooling box and flows through the heat exchangers, this leaves the cooler at 55°C maximum.
Also, the FlowBox can be removed and cleaned easily without the need for special tools. It also includes a small number of wearing parts, reducing spending on replacement parts.
Laygo Gaskets manufactures plate heat exchangers gaskets compatible with Gea Ecoflex's equipment
, one of the leading manufacturers worldwide.
