Biotechnology gathers all techniques using living beings for industrial manufacturing and this is a sector in full growth. Biotechnology can be found in plenty of fields like:

  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Food and beverage industry
  • Cosmetics industry
  • Chemical industry

The equipment used in this field of activity produce a lot of energy and that is why Weplex becomes necessary to master heat exchanges.

Why install a heat exchanger in a laboratory?

A heat exchanger can be crucial in the thermic processes in the different steps of production of biotechnological structures. Weplex® heat exchangers are particularly adapted to the heating or cooling down of liquids. Consequently a heat exchanger is useful in the distillation and fermentation processes. Moreover, Weplex is more interesting than other heat exchangers because of the wide canals which don’t retain liquids that are very charged in suspended substances.

Weplex® welded plates heat exchangers are very compact and thus very easy to install and clean.
