HELIXCHANGER® heat exchangers increase the capacity and lower maintenance costs for existing plants, reduce capital investment, plot space and energy costs for grassroots applications. More than 1,800 HELIXCHANGER® heat exchangers are in operation worldwide in several applications throughout the oil and gas, refining, petrochemical and chemical industries.

  • Enhanced heat transfer
  • Lower shell side pressure drops
  • Capital cost savings – typically 20%
  • Lower shell side fouling
  • Extended run-length and service life
  • Reduced vibration hazards
  • Reduced heating, pumping and maintenance costs
  • Increased process capacity of up to 40%



EmbaffleEMbaffle® has pioneered a step change in baffle design that significantly reduced fouling and eliminates vibration. The design features an expanded metal (EM) baffle grid made of plate material that has been slit and expanded. The designs, which can be made more compact than a traditional baffle design, have reduced diametrical dimensions and weight. The result is a major improvement in heat exchanger performance, leading to improved heat transfer, resulting in reduced energy consumption and lower CO2 NOX emissions. This, in turn, can materially reduce operating costs.

Tube vibration in the EMbaffle® heat exchanger is effectively eliminated and the risk of systems mechanical damage is significantly reduced. This absence of cross-flow induced vibration allows considerable flexibility in heat exchanger design.
