Applications

Our FBHX Technology has been used in a variety of applications including Evaporators, Reboilers, Preheaters, Concentrators, Reactors, and Crystallizers across a myriad of industries.

Petrochemicals & Industrial Wastewaters

  • Heating Applications Evaporator or Concentrator Systems and Reboilers to handle high solids concentrations and solutions with both organic and inorganic fouling constituents; processes with polymerization fouling problems; wastewater reclamation; landfill leachate concentration; Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) Projects.

  • Cooling Applications Cooling Crystallization Processes; Production of slurry-ice with continuous de-icing of heat transfer surface; Cost-effective replacement of Scraped-Surface Exchangers; Wastewater De-Waxing; Paraxylene Processing.
