Heat Exchanger Hinges

Heat exchangers are devices used to transfer heat from one medium to another in both cooling and heating processes. For instance, they may be used to convert boiled water to steam or remove heat with the help of cold air or water. This transfers the heat from the coolant to the air or water, making the latter hot. Usually, the fluids are separated by a wall or gasket that helps prevent mixing, and this is where hinges are used for bolting the access door to the body of the heat exchanger. These are used across various industries to heat or cool the concerned fluids. Kiesler Machine Inc is a well-known manufacturer of heavy-duty heat exchanger hinges among many other types.
