BRIDGER SCIENTIFIC heat transfer performance monitoring

Product Info

Principle: The DATS-III Fouling Monitor utilizes the latest in microprocessor technology to simulate condenser / heat exchanger environment on a fluid side stream through a controlled tube section.

By matching the tube material, heat flux, and flow rates to an actual process, the DATS-III is able to provide vital information regarding performance degradation, and economic loss due to fouling. Calibrated temperature probes within the DATS heat exchanger accurately measure both fluid and heater temperatures, and is used along with power input to calculate the heat transfer. All heat transfer data is then provided as analog output signals to tie in with customer equipment.
