The curious-looking chambered nautilus, or Nautilus Pompilius, is considered by many biologists to be a living fossil, perfectly adapted to salt water and remaining unchanged for over 400 million years. The shell of the nautilus is comprised of many individual chambers which, by injecting or removing fluid through a system of tubes, provides the creature with buoyancy.
In 1978, Braude introduced a product specifically designed for heating highly corrosive liquids used in harsh environments. Inspired by the curious creature, it was named the Nautilus Teflon Heat Exchanger. Using high integrity fluoropolymers, such as PTFE, which has excellent chemical resistance, the Nautilus established the reputation of Braude as specialist manufacturers of acid proof equipment which met the rigorous demands of the pickling, galvanising and metal finishing industry.
Built from non-corrodable, fully tested high-performance fluoropolymer PTFE-based materials, the Braude Nautilus utilises steam, hot water or thermal fluid as a heating medium and chilled water for cooling applications. Heat outputs are available from 20 to 400kW in a single unit.
These robust heat-exchange units have been in production virtually unchanged, for nearly 40 years and are used by many well known multinational companies across the steel, galvanising, aerospace and other typically heavy engineering sectors.
However, in order to survive in today’s economic climate, Braude recognises the need to think creatively and continually push to innovate; that’s why Braude has extended the range of our well-known and proven Nautilus Heat Exchanger to include our new Fluorochill Element. Thanks to our signature fluoropolymer elements, the new Nautilus Fluorochill Heat Exchanger offers many benefits such as…
- 20% more cooling efficiency
- 20% smaller allowing installation and operation in restricted spaces
- Up to 30% saving because of the streamlined manufacturing process
- Ideal for modern processes such as Tartaric Acid Anodising, therefore helping to reduce the environmental impact of the traditional chromic acid anodising process
…at the same time maintaining the excellent chemical resistance that is Braude’s trademark.
