GEA ECOFLEX PRESENTS A NEW MARITIME COOLER WITH BENEFITS SIMILAR TO THOSE OF PLATE HEAT EXCHANGERS Recently, Gea Ecoflex - now Kelvion - presented the Bloksma FlowBox, a high-performance maritime cooler that combines the benefits of both coolers and plate heat exchangers. The Bloksma FlowBox offers high-performance tugs, freighters, dredges and supply vessels. Regarding stationary service, FlowBox allows a greater cooling capacity than conventional cooling boxes with the same dimensions. To achieve these benefits, the forced circulation controlled by cooled sea water demand is implemented. U-shaped heat exchangers found within the FlowBox ensure an effective heat exchange with seawater. Therefore, they are designed to withstand temperatures up to 94°C and operating pressures of 4 bar. Thus, once seawater enters the cooling box and flows through the heat exchangers, this leaves the cooler at 55°C maximum. Also, the FlowBox can be removed and cleaned easily without the need for special tools. It also includes a small number of wearing parts, reducing spending on replacement parts. Laygo Gaskets manufactures plate heat exchangers gaskets compatible with Gea Ecoflex's equipment, one of the leading manufacturers worldwide.
