Heat Exchanger Repairs – Western Cape

Need A Heat Exchanger Repaired?

Heat exchangers are very costly pieces of specialized equipment and to replace a heat exchanger is often very costly. Just like any mechanical device, heat exchangers can be refurbished or repaired and can function for a long time before it has to be replaced.

Mechinox can consult you on replacement costs as apposed to repair costs.

Incompressibility: The rubber compound can change shape, after being squeezed it will return to its original vulcanized shape.

Strength: It is strong enough to withstand the forces normally incurred by squeezing into position and being acted upon by pressurized liquid.

Softness: The rubber is strong enough for the application but still soft enough to conform closely to the metal surfaces and provides a seal without undue stresses being applied.

Resistance to Fluid: The high molecular weight, cross linked polymer matrix is resistant to penetration by any fluid of a dissimilar chemical nature to itself.

Resistance to Temperature: All polymers will only behave as a rubber over a relatively short range of temperature. Thus careful selection of the compound according to the required temperature range is necessary.

Longevity: Synthetic polymers have a built in superiority in terms of useful lifetime, and modern additives can further enhance this property. It is in this area that the correct compound selection is of vital importance.
