Hipex has developed the Mixchanger heat exchanger which is suited for heating and cooling viscous food and chemical products. The heat exchanger's design delivers performance unobtainable by conventional tubular heat exchangers. The clearance within the Mixchanger enables large particulates to be handled without blocking or significant loss in efficiency. Its distinctive continuous mixing capability provides a much greater rate of heat transfer than can be achieved with other types of heat exchanger.
