Compact Welded Heat Exchangers

Brad Thompson Company offers innovative heat transfer solutions via compact welded heat exchangers from Kelvion. Both the Bloc and Flex type compact plate heat exchangers give BTCo the ability to reach process pressures exceeding 2000 psi.

Bloc Exchanger:

  • Applications
  • Pressures or temperatures that exceed Kelvion capabilities.
  • Most viscosity levels
  • Some fiber contents.
  • Flow Rate
  • Up to 30,000 gpm (6800 m³/hour) so far.
  • Design Temperature
  • Up to 550°F (288°C)

-Down to -20°F (-29°C)

  • Design Pressure
  • Up to 450 psig (31 barg)


KFlex plates are alternately welded to

build a plate pack. The inlet and outlet

sides of the plate pack are closed with

distribution headers. Pressure plates

are bolted with the fully welded housing

and ensure mechanical stability. The

basic flow mode is crossflow. Cross- and

counterflow can be set up with internal

baffle plates.
