ALPEMA standardsALPEMA®, the Brazed Aluminium Plate-Fin Heat Exchanger Manufacturers' Association represents the world's five major manufacturers of brazed aluminium plate-fin heat exchangers (BAHXs).
Brazed Aluminum Heat Exchangers Charts Brazed Aluminum Heat Exchangers (also known as Plate Fin Heat Exchangers) and Cold Boxes are at the heart of low temperature natural gas, air separation and petrochemical processes worldwide. Building the World's Largest
Brazed Aluminum Plate-Fin Heat Exchangers Reduce Costs Mar 01, 2000 · Brazed aluminum plate-fin heat exchangers commonly are installed directly inside distillation columns to eliminate costly piping. Compact size and versatility are typical features of a brazed aluminum plate-fin heat exchanger. The unit's compact size is due to the heat transfer fins and the aluminum material.
Apr 06, 2016 · Brazed-aluminum-plate-fin heat exchangers (or core exchangers or cold boxes) as they are sometimes called, were first manufactured for the aircraft industry during World War II. In 1950, the first tonnage air-separation plant with these compact, lightweight, reversing heat exchangers began producing oxygen for a steel mill.
CryoCore® Brazed Aluminum Heat Exchangers CoreWorksCryoCore ® Brazed Aluminum Heat Exchangers (BAHX) CryoCore ® custom-designed cryogenic heat exchangers (BAHX) are the most energy efficient and cost effective way to solve your heat exchanger requirements for a variety of applications, including cryogenic gas processing and liquefaction.
Brazed Aluminium Heat Exchangers (BAHX) play a crucial role in cryogenics. This due to their ability to facilitate heat transfer with small temperature differences. They are widely used for olefin, liquefied natural gas (LNG), and gas processing applications, offering high reliability and low energy consumption.
