Heat Exchangers for Waste Water Treatment.
Fluid Dynamics’ Tubular or Tube in Tube corrugated stainless steel range of heat exchangers are ideal for Waste Water Treatment.
Anaerobic digestion techniques are used in the majority of today’s wastewater treatment plants for biological stabilization of municipal sewage sludge. An integral part of most communities, these plants can be tremendous consumers of energy and with energy costs constantly on the rise, energy consumption is closely monitored and a great way to reduce costs is to use effective heat exchangers.
Both existing and new plants are installing tube-in-tube heat exchangers in an effort to reduce energy consumption, improve operating efficiencies and reduce maintenance costs. Corrugated tube-in-tube or tubular heat exchangers provide many benefits over other forms of heat exchange including:
Corrugations ensure constant agitation and freer flows of sludge with significantly less blockages and better thermal properties. The space between tubes can be designed to suit the viscosity, thermal properties, density and thermal conductivity of the subject sludge.

Waste Water Treatment plants use a number of different heat exchangers for the processing of waste water and they are all available from Fluid Dynamics:
- Shell & Tube
- Gasketted Plate
- Brazed Plate
- Finned Tube
