Sulfuric Acid Coolers
APEX is rapidly becoming a major designer and manufacturer of high efficient Anodically Protected Shell and Tube Acid Coolers. Our team consists of specialized personnel in project management, thermal-design engineering, and sales engineering combined with many years of heat transfer experience. We utilize current state-of-the-art tools such as HTRI, ASPEN, PV ELITE and AUTOCAD. Over the years we have developed and utilized proprietary design features such as baffles and cathode supports to ensure and maintain passivation and pressure drop requirements.
APEX’s highly efficient Anodically Protected Acid Coolers are protected from the hot concentrated sulfuric acid by an advanced anodic protection system developed by our partner, Corrosion Service. They have been a leader in the science of corrosion prevention since it was founded in 1950. A properly applied anodic protection system will minimize general corrosion and prevent hydrogen grooving of all immersed surfaces. The added benefit of reduced iron pick up will help maintain acid purity.
APEX utilizes Automatic Orbital Welding to ensure the most consistent and highest quality welds!
Our strict quality control and advanced welding techniques are the key to ensure that the mechanical design is manufactured to the highest quality standard and guard against failures.
Apex Quality Control procedures
We use Controlled Current Source, as well as Dye Testing, Helium Leak Testing, and UV Testing, throughout the fabrication process.
