Alfa Laval Packinox for multi-stream service

Multi-stream heat exchanger

Alfa Laval Packinox Multi-Stream Heat Exchangers can serve

in a range of applications that require handling of multiple
streams in a single unit.

The reactor effluent chiller for MTBE units is one such exam-
ple. In this case study, retrofitting a Alfa Laval Packinox reac-
tor effluent chiller into an MTBE unit enhanced efficiency by
further cooling reactor effluent after the chiller drum.

The 2.8 MW reactor effluent chiller consists of a welded plate

bundle maintained by tie rods. It accommodates four
streams: reactor effluent, chiller knock-out drum liquid, chiller
knock-out drum vapors, and a propane refrigerant.

Example of an Alfa Laval Packinox

Reactor effluent chiller:

Design information
Overall length: 7m
Bundle cross-section: 3.5m x 2.5m
Design pressure: 11 bar.g
Design temperature: -10°C / 45°C

This heat exchanger can serve in similar operations which call for
multi-stream service requiring both cross-flow and counter-flow
