Nautilus Tank Heater
An internal tank heat exchanger manufactured from fully tested high performance flouropolymer PTFE-based materials making it ideal for use with nitric, hydrochloric and chromic acids - indeed most known corrosive solutions - up to 100°C.
Nautilus units are of a modular construction which enables the basic unit capacity to be increased by the fitment of further elements. Heating units can also be 'linked' if really high outputs are required. Operation is normally with saturated steam, hot water or thermal fluid for heating and chilled water for cooling.
Example of Applications
- Acid pickling in steel industry
- Pickling and flux in galvanising pre treatment
- Chemical milling
- Chemical plant processes and storage
- Reduce process downtime improving efficiency
- Suitable for heating or cooling
- Flexible easy fit connections
- Large output range
- Simple to install and easy to maintain
- Will not corrode in aggressive acids or chemical solutions

A Nautilus heat exchanger top flange mounted heater designed for use in offline tanks typically found in large pickling applications such as steel strip production.The unit is supplied with the Teflon element suspended beneath a top plate and sturdy frame to withstand the arduous conditions found in these applications. It is designed typically for use with saturated steam but could also be used with hot water systems or thermal fluid. Like all Nautilus heat exchangers it can be used for cooling with a suitable chilled water supply.The offline system makes the unit easy to remove for maintenance or replacement without disruption to the process.
