watlow 0116Watlow's OPTIMAX is a next generation heat exchanger that is smaller and lighter than traditional units. It uses enhanced fluid dynamics (EFD) technology to provide advanced flow throughout the system without compromising the integrity of the fluid, heating elements and/or vessel. Fluid temperatures are further optimized through the use of Watlow’s optimized film temperature (OFT) technology in the heating elements. These, coupled together, provide an accelerated heat transfer rate, allowing the vessel to perform consistently at shorter lengths, or smaller shell diameters. Additionally, the OPTIMAX can be designed for backwards compatibility with existing designs.
