Application fields

Industrial chilling of food
  • fish, meet, poultry
  • fruit, vegetables
  • milk, milk products
  • softdrink production
  • production of baked goods
Chilling in the production of
  • chemicals
  • pharmaceuticals
Application and benefit
  • Homogenious tempering of liquids in tanks
  • Conciliatory tempering of foods
  • Heat transfer from poluted media and media with particles
  • Additional functions:
    • as flow breaker in agitator vessels
    • as carrier platform f.e. for freeze drying or continuous fryers
    • as vibration transport channels for pallets
Individual design in measurement, shape and material allows flexible use in many industries and extend the normal standard.


The big heat exchange areas ensure a safe process operation with homogeniously guided temperature control. The u-values will only be influenced marginally, when polution or dirt covers the panels. Favourable temperature differences direct at the process media result in a much better efficiency compared to compact external heat exchanges.

At the same time products, especially foods, are treated very gentle. The flexible design of the dimple panels allows tempering of products during other process steps. That secures another separate thermal process step and often increases the product quality. Our experienced engineers would like to support you to integrate the dimple panels into your process.


  • Material according to application specification
  • Carbon steel or stainless steel as: AISI 304, AISI 316L, AISI 316Ti up to titanium
  • Heat exchangers for water, glycol, thermal oil or steam inside the panels
