Heat exchangers Chemical

Heat exchange solutions for the chemical industry

For more than a century, Sterling Thermal Technology manufactures heat exchangers for the chemical industry to help control its processes and reduce risk. This is why we design and manufacture our heat exchangers to operate in the most challenging environments, withstanding ever increasing temperatures and pressures. Through the dependability of our equipment, we help to minimise downtime, protect people, society and the environment.

Raising efficiency, lowering risk

The chemical industry has used our heat exchangers since 1904. You can find them everywhere from product cooling and heating through to air drying systems and heat recovery processes. While acquiring this extensive expertise and experience, we have developed a deep understanding of the sector including its risks and requirements. So, we design and manufacture our products to operate in the most challenging conditions. They help you to improve efficiency while minimising risk.

Value for money

Heat exchangers from Sterling Thermal Technology represent exceptional value for money. They deliver industry-leading levels of reliability and efficiency, which helps you to control costs. They also offer greatly enhanced resistance to erosion and corrosion, which extends service life.
To further save you money, we can repair, refurbish, upgrade or replace existing equipment, restoring it to an ‘as new’ condition, tested and certified for compliance.

Minimal downtime

Downtime is minimised because our heat exchangers are rugged, dependable and easy to maintain.
The expertise of our highly skilled and flexible workforce is on hand when needed, and we hold extensive stocks of copper nickel and titanium tubes to allow our teams to respond rapidly to emergency and breakdown situations.

Meeting industry standards

Our heat exchangers are manufactured in accordance with recognised codes and standard of compliance and operational safety, including:

  • ASME
  • PD5500
  • PED
  • Norsok

Ultimately, these are heat exchangers that offer both value for money and high levels of operational safety in even in the most hazardous environments.
