Bulkflow changes corporate name to Solex Thermal Science, Inc (EUR)
8 May 2008
CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA - Bulkflow Technologies, Inc. has changed its corporate name to Solex Thermal Science, Inc. to more accurately reflect the strengths and value the company offers to its customers. The name change becomes effective March 31, 2008.
Founded in 1999 as Bulkflow Technologies, Inc. Solex Thermal Science, Inc. remains a privately held, primarily employee-owned, company specialising in the science of heating, cooling and drying of free flowing bulk solids such as sugar, salt, fertiliser, chemicals, plastics, biosolids, minerals and many other types of granular, crystals and powder. The original cooler technology was invented more than 20 years ago and was acquired by Bulkflow in 1999.
“Solex maintains the same ownership group - its employees - and the same management group,” said Neville Jordison, President of Solex Thermal Science, Inc. “More than 90 percent of our employees share a vested interest in our company.
Nothing has changed except our corporate name and brand identity which now more accurately portrays the unique knowledge, expertise and product that we offer to our customers.”
Along with the new corporate name, Solex also introduced a new slogan that emphasizes the corporate position as world leaders in the science of bulk solids heat exchange and advanced technological development. The slogan, “World Leaders in the Science of Heating and Cooling Bulk Solids,” accurately summarises the capabilities and position of the company in the market.
“The world leading innovations produced by Solex come from a committed team of employees that have extensive knowledge and experience dealing with complex heat exchange problems involving bulk solid materials”, Jordison added. “We have experience engineering heat exchanger solutions for bulk solids in a wide variety of industries and applications world-wide. Some of the world leading companies trust Solex with the science of heating, cooling and drying their bulk solids”.
Jordison emphasised that the Solex heat exchanger technology is a patented technology with unique benefits. “Its design is inherently simple, yet offers the benefits of leading edge technology – it uses up to 90% less energy than competing technologies, contains no moving parts, prevents creation of dust and emissions, and is ultra compact. This technology solves a host of issues commonly experienced in the process of heating and cooling bulk solids”.
Jordison also noted, “When you deal with Solex for cooling, heating or drying of bulk solids, you get more than a heat exchanger. You get a custom engineered solution that is designed using advanced thermal and flow property evaluation methods. Solex uses proprietary thermal modeling software that accurately predicts product temperatures resulting in a heat exchanger design that comes with guaranteed thermal performance. It’s a science. This was the main reason we needed a new corporate name and brand identity, one that reflects our technology, experience, capabilities and guaranteed thermal performance. Solex Thermal Science, Inc. does that.”
The Solex Heat Exchanger Described
The Solex heat exchanger technology is designed for indirect heating and cooling of free flowing powders and bulk solids. The design consists of a vertical bank of several closely spaced heat exchanger plates. As product passes slowly downward, by gravity, between the series of vertical hollow heat exchanger plates, cooling (or heating) fluid flows through the plates to cool (or heat) the material by conduction. A mass flow discharge feeder regulates the product flow and creates uniform product velocity as the material passes through the cooler.
Solex Thermal Science, Inc. has expert staff located internationally to provide world-wide sales and technical support to its customers, including; Germany, Belgium/France, The Netherlands, and The United Kingdom as well as the United States. The company serves India, Russia and numerous other countries through strategically located dealers. It is represented in Latin American by Ventura Process Equipment Company with offices in Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Venezuela.
