BORSIG Process Heat Exchanger GmbH - 1000th "Tunnelflow" Transfer Line Exchanger Completed

On 18th December 2015 BORSIG Process Heat Exchanger GmbH, a member of the BORSIG Group, officially completed its 1000th "Tunnelflow" transfer line exchanger (also known as quench cooler) – representing a further milestone in the company's history which extends back over 175 years.

The transfer line exchanger is part of an order from an affiliate of a French oil company located in Belgium, and will be delivered on 30th May 2016. In Antwerp the French company is currently refurbishing Europe's third-biggest refinery and petrochemical plant. The "Tunnelflow" transfer line exchanger will be used within this complex for the cooling of process gases in the production of ethylene.

BORSIG has been manufacturing transfer line exchangers for more than 50 years now. During this period the design of the BORSIG quench coolers has been developed further and improved permanently. The currently completed "Tunnelflow" transfer line exchanger of the so called 3rd generation of its kind is another good example of a high-quality product "Made by BORSIG".

"Decades of practice-oriented design, always of the highest quality, a production that perpetually reflects the state-of-the-art, and our highly-motivated employees – these all guarantee that we can always deliver customized top technology worldwide. It's not without reason that, right up to the present day, we are the preferred manufacturer and supplier in this product area," said Managing Director Carsten Birk on the occasion marking the completion of the 1000th transfer line exchanger.

BORSIG Process Heat Exchanger GmbH develops and manufactures highly sophisticated and “made-to-order” solutions for process technology clients. Apart from transfer line exchangers, other products engineered and manufactured at the production premises at "Tegeler See" in Berlin include complete waste-heat recovery systems for special downstream applications in the petrochemical industries and scraped surface heat exchangers.
