How we calculate
We are calculating size and plate number of XPS or XPT heat exchangers according to your thermal and mechanical specifications.
GESMEX Plate and Shell heat exchangers are calculated for one-phase and two-phase duties. More complicated calculations are also possible if fluid properties are available. For example condensation of multicomponent mixtures and heat transfer to supercritical fluids.
Fluid properties of refrigerants and simple Hydrocarbons are calculated with Refprop, a fluid properties calcualtion software from "National Institute of Standards and Technology" (NIST). Properties of customer products or special fluids must be provided within the thermal specification.
The core of our calculation software is a company development and is subject to continous improvements. After all calculations and optimisations are done a datasheet is printed which shows all important properties of the unit.
