Heat exchange system

A BUCO Heat Exchange System can be used for liquids with fluctuating temperatures or volumes as well as for heat recovery from polluted gases or vapors.For stable process control, our systems compensate for load peaks or temperature jumps of liquids either by control technology or by a buffer volume with the help of a large tank.

Finally, the large heat exchanger surfaces ensure safe process control with controlled temperature control.Consequently, the K values ​​are only insignificantly influenced, even if they are soiled or soiled on the boards.In the long run, therefore, significantly better efficiencies compared to compact external heat exchangers closed design.Even when it comes to contamination, our BUCO heat exchange systems ensure high performance stability.The open construction of the systems allows quick inspections as well as uncomplicated cleaning processes and thus a high degree of operational safety.

If necessary, the cooling process can be further stabilized by a slight ice build-up.As a result, this reserve of power gives you security.

Individual designs in size, shape and material enable flexible use in numerous applications and thus expand the standard.

Heat Exchange Systems advantages

We have always assimilated engineering science and thermodynamics optimally in the various manufacturing processes.

Thermodynamicists,mechanical engineers and welding engineers define the dimensioning, design and construction of customised heat exchanger panels and systems in materials ranging from mild and austenitic steels through to titanium, and ensure successful distribution of their work worldwide.

In doing so they fall back on production engineering expertise and calculations developed in the course of the past hundred years that are still being continuously optimised in an ongoing process.

In the perception of our customers, the Buco product stands for:

  • Technical and process-oriented consulting
  • Thermodynamic efficiency
  • Quality and longevity
