Advantages

  • The overall exchanger is lighter (thinner channel) and easier to handle
  • The internal tubesheet-to-shell gasket can be tightened from the outside during exchanger operation
  • No cutting of welded parts (i.e., channel diaphragm weld) is required to open the channel for maintenance and/or inspection
  • There is no need for hydraulic bolt tensioning devices to remove the channel cover and reassemble the exchanger, thus eliminating the number of tightening cycles and strain gauge measurements

These advantages allow for easy operation and maintenance of the LUMMUS ADVANCED BREECH-LOCK EXCHANGER® heat exchangers:they are easy to operate and comparatively easy to dismantle and reassemble, which results in more reliable operation and shorter shutdown time.

Easier mantenance + Shorter shutdown time = Higher efficiency
