Watlow®, an industry leader in the design and manufacture of complete thermal systems, recently introduced its new OPTIMAX®, a next generation heat exchanger that combines tried and true, critical design criteria with new Watlow proprietary technologies to create a world-class heating system solution.

Watlow’s OPTIMAX is smaller and lighter than traditional heat exchangers and can help reduce the overall footprint by almost 50 percent. Although the size and weight are less, users will realize improved heat transfer efficiency and world-class pressure drop performance.

This optimal performance of the OPTIMAX is possible because Watlow incorporates its proprietary enhanced fluid dynamics (EFD) technology to provide advanced flow throughout the system without compromising the integrity of the fluid, heating elements and/or vessel. Fluid temperatures are further optimized through the use of Watlow’s optimized film temperature (OFT) technology in the heating elements. These, coupled together, provide an accelerated heat transfer rate, allowing the vessel to perform consistently at shorter lengths, or smaller shell diameters. Additionally, the OPTIMAX can be designed for backwards compatibility with existing designs.

Watlow has validated these technologies through CFD / FEA modeling, as well as over 5,000 hours of laboratory testing.

“We are excited about our new OPTIMAX heat exchanger because of the benefits our customers will realize,” said Dennis Long, global marketing director, energy processes business unit. “OPTIMAX offers maximum capabilities, world-class pressure drop performance and efficient heat transfer all in a smaller package size. There is nothing else like it on the market today.”

OPTIMAX is available with all applicable global certifications including UL, ASME, CSA, ATEX, IECEx and PESO.
