SPX is constantly working to better meet and exceed customer expectations. As part of its ongoing commitment to superior customer service, it has opened a new Plate Heat Exchanger (PHE) Service Center in Xidu, China to enhance the aftermarket support for its customers in this area.
Through its APV brand, SPX is a leading global supplier of highly reliable and efficient plate heat exchangers. This innovative process technology is engineered to provide high thermal efficiency with optimized plate designs that reduce energy consumption. Options include gasketed, semi-welded and welded configurations in a variety of plate materials, corrugation patterns, plate heights, gasket types and connection options that meet a wide variety of application needs from heavy duty operations to small, space-saving installations.
SPX's PHE units are designed for long life and long run times with simple operation and maintenance through easy gasket mounting and plate alignment systems. Easy cleaning and inspection accessibility further lowers maintenance overheads. The new Xidu Service Center will provide re-gasketing, refurbishment and dye penetration inspection services to further extend PHE life and ensure processes remain optimized; restoring thermal performance and operating efficiency to original design levels.
The center will also support SPX's innovative Gappscan advanced monitoring technology for the in situ detection of micro cracks and holes that may cause leaks and reduced efficiency of heat exchangers and other vessels. The Gappscan system works without the need to dismantle systems; provides the customer with an assessment of continued monitoring, planned repair interval or immediate shutdown needs, and has been shown to help reduce the risk of product contamination and lower overall production costs. The certified process is carried out by a qualified SPX inspector who can provide an immediate assessment of any action required.
Overall, the new Xidu Service Center is just one example of SPX’s ongoing commitment to provide superior service and improved customer experience. Customers throughout China will benefit from expert, timely services to keep their processes running more efficiently and reliably.
