Bekaert heat exchangers consist of high grade aluminum supplied by a global network of top suppliers. This material has several essential benefits to the design:
> greater freedom of design
> excellent thermal conductivity (10x higher than stainless steel)
> high corrosion resistance
> significantly lighter and more efficient than stainless steel heat exchangers of similar capacity
Bekaert's monobloc and sectional aluminum heat exchangers are produced by a sand-casting process. This means there are no welds and less heat stress areas that could compromise the structure of the heat exchanger.
