Tranter's application engineers have looked for over 20 years, and have engineered a variety of solutions which have enabled ship owners, builders and ooerators to lower costs and to increase the productivity of their vessels.

Our PLATECOIL® prime surface units can be engineered and designed in any way, shape or form to improve heat transfer efficiency, while our MAX-

CHANGER® all-welded plate heat exchangers are especially effective where space is at a premium or gasket limitations prevent the use of a SUPER-


From heating main engine jacket water to cooling water/glycol solutions for electronic gear cooling, to plastic waste disposal and numerous other suc- cessful heating and cooling applications, Tranter heat exchangers are pro- viding optimum efficiency in heat transfer.
