Scraped Surface Heat Exchangers


APV scraped surface heat exchangers (SSHE) consist of a jacketed cylinder with a rotating dasher holding rows of scraper blades. The product is pumped through the cylinder while the heating or cooling medium is circulated between the cylinder and the jacket. The medium can be steam, water or a refrigerant such as ammonia or freon.

No matter what specific operational requirements you have, APV can match you to a scraped surface heat exchanger. A large number of options are available so that each machine can be carefully tailored to the application.
