An Offshore Option
Florian Picard, Fives Cryo, France, presents a new heat exchanger solution suitable for offshore applications in the LNG Industry magazine, in the edition of March 2016.
Brazed plate-fin heat exchangers are considered a key component in the cryogenic industry for applications such as LNG production, LNG transportation, natural gas processing, petrochemicals, and air separation. Their custom-made brazed structure provides a multi-stream, compact and efficient heat transfer solution.
Fives recently developed the brazed stainless steel plate-fin heat exchanger (BSSHX) as a solution to the challenges of high temperatures, high pressures and corrosive environments. BSSHXs are particularly suitable for offshore gas compression systems and are capable of being optimised according to both performance requirements and financial targets.
