Characteristics of Chemical Cooling
The TORUS Cooling system consists of a cooling unit that cools hot media to the desired temperature directly and in-line. The highest possible heat exchange is achieved thanks to the globally patented and innovative design of the heat exchanger and its associated control system. TORUS Cooling is not just the developer of the products: complete cooling plants are built and delivered under the supervision of TORUS Cooling. The heart of the installation is the heat exchanger, which is constructed from a single, completely chemically resistant tube (even out of a customer-specific tube) that has a high cooling capacity. Liquid media are cooled, to for example 40°C down to 4°C in just 30 seconds by the unique in-line control system. As the tube is a closed circuit, the integrity of the medium is guaranteed, thus your chemical media remain isolated from the environment.
Traditional heat exchangers, such as falling film, ice banks, hydrocoolers, tube-in-tube and plate exchangers, work indirectly or spread the media to be cooled through various channels, resulting in a large pressure drop and fouling. If working directly, they usually expose the (chemical) product to the open air and, if closed, they disperse the medium to be cooled through a surface that is difficult to clean. In addition, traditional heat exchangers require a large ΔT to evaporate the cooling medium: the difference in temperature between the cooling medium and the desired end temperature of the medium to be cooled is usually greater than 10°C.
The TORUS Cooling heat exchanger consists of a one-piece drawn tube (even according to customer specifications) that has the largest possible contact surface and thus a small ΔT to evaporate the cooling medium. The difference in temperature between the cooling medium and the desired end temperature of the medium on average is only 1°C for TORUS Cooling heat exchangers. The smaller the ΔT between the cooling medium and the medium to be cooled, the lower the energy consumption. With this, TORUS Cooling achieves an energy consumption that is on average 32% lower than that of conventional heat exchangers. Since TORUS Cooling has its own control unit for the heat exchanger, we can regulate the desired temperature precisely; media are cooled accurately within a bandwidth of 0.4°C.
Due to its very rigid construction, the heat exchanger shell can withstand pressures above 40 bar as standard. For high pressure applications, TORUS Cooling heat exchangers are built to withstand design pressures of over 1700 bar.
The innovative design of the TORUS Cooling unit provides sanitary cooling media of the highest quality. The energy consumption of the refrigeration system will be demonstrably reduced by an average of 32%, thereby reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) for each company.
For the cooling of liquids, our products are used in the food, chemical, hydrogen and pharmaceutical industries with a lower Total Cost of Ownership as the dominant reason for choosing Torus Cooling solutions.
