Vogt Ice / Turbo

- Model HTD/HF Series - Plate Chillers


HTD and HF Series Heat Exchangers transfer heat to a thin film of liquid falling on the outside of a plate. The refrigerant is contained on the plate's inside.

The falling film plate type heat exchangers with larger and more plate sizes for higher production. Broader selectivity better performance lower operating cost food / beverage / chemical / manufacturing

The Flexibility of Proven Equipment

HTD Series:
stands for High Temperature Difference. Fluids are chilled or heated over large temperature differences, ranging from 5 degree F to 60 degree F. A relatively low fluid flow accompanies the high temperature difference.

HF Series:
stands for High Flow. Fluids are chilled over narrow temperature differences, ranging from 1 degree F to 2 degree F. The plate's long, narrow geometrical configuration enables high fluid flow for low temperature differences. Equipment to accomplish these concepts has been researched and developed by TURBO engineers for years. Computerized engineering design and welding manufacturing now make available capable heat transfer equipment for a multitude of applications across the spectrum of Industry. This broad experience is now being put to use in fluid chilling, as well as the transfer of heat, for specific new markets. What makes these the world's finest liquid heat exchangers? It's in the experience that really counts. That's where we've obtained the many differences that make these units the most cost effective in the industry.

Broader Selectivity
TURBO offers users greater selectivity with a complete line of standard HTD/HF units. Standard plate sizes: 48'*60', 72'*60',96'*60',144'*24'. Choice of freon or ammonia refrigerants. Packaged evaporation and condensing units. Many options are available. For flooded systems. For recirculating systems. Total flexibility in standard design for plate sizes, reservoir capacities, water distribution systems. These models can handle all kinds of fluids safely, efficiently. From clean water to contaminated liquids with solids. Even moderately viscous solutions can be chilled economically.

Better Performance
It's the highly effective falling film heat transfer system. You can chill free flowing liquids to within one Fahrenheit degree of the freeze point. Solids up to 1/4 inch diameter can pass through the water circuit. No freeze-up problems. Water, brines,glycol solutions, all with comparable characteristics can be control-chilled within a degree of their freezing points. Designed and built to produce controlled temperatures for hours, weeks, months, even years of continuous operation.

Lower Operating Cost
These units are virtually trouble-free. And that results in more production time, more user operating profits without product contamination. Easy to clean and inspect. Very little downtime for any maintenance. All of stainless steel construction for long life and corrosion resistance. The HTD / HF Series can solve almost any problem of chilling circulating water, beverages, juices, syrup, chemicals, process liquids of practically any kind. Highly efficient falling film heat transfer systems without freeze-up problems are designed to-the-job. They can help cut operating costs substantially.
