Process Technology's XC Heat Exchanger Has High-Flow Capability
Unit delivers an ultra-high-purity, compact, high-flow heat exchanger with precise and stable heat transfer while reducing fluid pressure drop.
Process Technology’s XC High-Flow Inline Heat Exchanger is designed to deliver an ultra-high-purity (UHP), compact, high-flow heat exchanger with precise and stable heat transfer while reducing fluid pressure drop. According to the company, high-flow capacity is achieved with a larger 13mm (0.5 inch) diameter tubing to improve circulation, reduce pressure drop, and enable a faster temperature response.

The low-mass unit is internally baffled for additional heat performance. Recirculating and single-pass flow applications provide safe heating for water, acids, bases, and solvents. The company says that the clean-room assembled, no wetted o-ring, PFA tube-side chemistry paths allow the unit to meet stringent cleanliness requirements to support next-generation ultra-high-purity semiconductor node technologies. The unit’s small, lightweight footprint reduces space requirements in tool design and allows for easy adaptations to existing lines for simplified end-user manufacturing complexity.
Here’s a primer on the types of finishes required for equipment used in sanitary applications.
Surface finish types for commercially supplied stainless steel sheet are detailed in various standards. ASTM A480-12 and EN10088-2 are two; BS 1449-2 (1983) is still available, although no longer active. These standards are very similar in that they define eight grades of surface finish for stainless steel. Grade 7 is “buff polished,” while the highest polish—the so-called mirror polish—is designated Grade 8
When choosing vibratory media, understand the size, shape, starting roughness condition and metallurgical structure of the part.
