Teralba Dimpleflo dimpled cross-section heat exchanger

Thursday, 23 September, 2021 | Supplied by: Teralba Industries


Teralba Dimpleflo dimpled cross-section heat exchanger is designed to break up laminar flow.

The R&D team at Teralba Industries never rest when it comes to its Dimpleflo tubular heat exchanger.

Constantly striving to increase heat transfer coefficients, they use different configurations of dimples at various depths to produce the optimum heat exchanger for viscous and fouling products.

Using dimples to disturb laminar flow behaviours, these turbulence enhancing deformations generate eddies and vortices that have an added benefit of minimising fouling — particularly in UHT and high-temperature processing applications where fouling and burn-on can be an issue in conventional double tube heat exchangers.

As pictured, the Dimpleflo tubing causes turbulence in a thick stick jam-based product.

Dimpleflo Heat Exchangers have been successfully installed in applications as diverse as processing human blood to heating sewerage sludge in anaerobic digesters.

With over 30 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of Dimpleflo, Teralba has a heat exchanger that is designed to heat and/or cool any product.
