Ametek Fluoropolymer Products will display its Q-Series heat exchanger tubing, which is designed to provide blister prevention in severe applications involving highly corrosive fluids combined with high operating pressures and temperatures. Q-Series heat exchangers are said to be suited for most metal finishing applications, particularly those involving electroless nickel and copper plating.
According to Ametek, its heat exchangers are less brittle than glass and graphite, and more corrosion resistant than most metals. They offer low extractables that can add contaminants or detract from the effectiveness of the fluids being heated or cooled. In addition, shell-and-tube configurations are available with nonmetallic shells to eliminate metal presence in proximity to fluid handling processes.
