Our SONDEX® plate condensers are the perfect choice for special applications that regular plate heat exchangers cannot handle. Designed to handle high-volume vapor flows, this product features a large inlet for the vapor stream. This, combined with a short residence time creates the optimal condensation conditions– even for low-pressure vapor duties.

Applications that demand flawless condensation conditions are easily managed using our customised standard, semi-welded, and brazed SONDEX® condenser solutions. For low-pressure vapor duties, our specialised condenser plate design accommodates large vapor volumes while maintaining the thermal performance of the plates.

Features and benefits

Designed specifically for demanding condensation duties that benefit from a special asymmetric plate design that is unavailable for regular heat exchangers.

Experience the high thermal efficiency of SONDEX® heat exchangers and enjoy peace of mind with an ideal turbulent flow that reduces the risk of fouling.

Special Multi-Gap plate design that can lower the energy consumption considerably for condensation duties that differ in flow volume.
