Does the footprint also matter when you need a new system?

Knowledge articles

One of the problems we often encounter with customers is lack of space.

Often they have existing buildings where the facility needs to fit. Therefore, the footprint of the plant is of great importance. Not least when it comes to installing a new heat exchanger system, as it can take up a lot of space.

But it is precisely here that we can make a difference.

Here it is an obvious option to choose a shell-in-tube heat exchanger instead of a plate exchanger, as it takes up significantly less space.

In addition, with our shell-in-tube heat exchanger from MBS, you achieve a very flexible solution.

MBS offers a standard programme that can be modified according to your wishes and requirements in relation to materials and design.

And in fact, vertical installation is also possible.

And are you in doubt about how you can make the best use of the space, or do you need help choosing the right solution?

Through close dialogue with our and MBS's experts, we can offer you technical sparring at a high level, so we can help you find the right solution.
