Vitherm was awarded 1 welded heat exchanger – for a palm oil company based in China


From fresh palm fruit bunches Crude Palm Oil and Palm Kernel oil are milled. These are processed either by physical or chemical refining which subsequently produce RBDPO or NBDPO (refined/neutralized, bleached, deodorized palm oil). These are further subjected to fractionation to achieve liquid olein and solid stearin fraction. For edible oil processing, dry fractionation is a widely used methodology as it is most economical. In such a vast process system Vitherm’s unit will be used to heat Palm oil using steam.

Vitherm welded heat exchanger will be used mainly in the pre-heating, economizer and steam heater section of the plant.  We were awarded this project as Vitherm is the only heat exchanger in Palm oil industry without any leaking history as compared to the competitors.

Since Vitherm’s Weldpack ® has strong and unique mechanical design of the column and the plate pack, it avoids any leakage at the corners. In addition, it also allows easy accessibility, hence making it possible for 100% cleaning due to the pattern on Vitherm plates giving extensive and trouble-free operation.

With 60 over years expertise in process technology and Heat Exchangers manufacturing,  Vitherm has advanced and expanded Weldpack heat exchangers to be applicable for many industrial usage. Research and Development is the key to Vitherm’s constant innovation in its technologies thus placing a strong foothold among global players in the heat exchanger market.

Today, our Heat Exchangers are manufactured according to the highest quality standards, and respects all the International Industry regulations and requirements in our State of Art manufacturing facilities. These are located in Asia, Europe and Middle East, as well as our service centers are spread throughout the Continents.

As focusing on upholding quality and maintaining customer satisfaction remains our utmost priority.
