Heat Exchangers

The KOCH Heat Transfer Companies provide their clients a real synergistic combination of expert thermal engineering, innovative technologies and best in class manufacturing capabilities to offer the world's most extensive selection of tubular heat exchanger products and solutions.

The KOCH heat transfer engineer has a "tool box" of technologies including breech lock ™ and taper-lok ® high-pressure closures; twisted tube ® technology, heli-baffle ® and conventional baffle shell and tube designs for complete units and replacement bundles; shell and tube, hairpin and large multi-tube configurations; and an extensive variety of both tube and shellside augmentation devices. They use these to provide their customers with cost-effective and reliable products to achieve design objectives. They then augment their thermal/hydraulic/mechanical designs with "best in class" manufacturing. The combination of these provides a single stop for the customer for their heat transfer requirements.

Their mission is to help the client early at the conceptual phase, during process design, operation and maintenance; with technical assistance, field supervision and aftermarket services.

KOCH Heat Transfer Companies design and fabricate custom heat exchangers for a global customer base. Their companies maintain fabrication capabilities in North America, Europe and Asia; either through company-owned facilities or in association with local manufacturers that can fabricate to all major design codes. KOCH heat transfer group is a part of KOCH chemical technology group LLC, a subsidiary of WICHITA, KS based KOCH industries, LLC.
