Votator scraped surface heat exchangers have been replacing slow, inefficient batching operations with more uniform, controllable and repeatable continuous processing.
For more than 80 years, Votator® scraped surface heat exchangers have been replacing slow, inefficient batching operations with more uniform, controllable and repeatable continuous processing. The Votator® II incorporates the most popular features of the Thermutator® and Votator® lines, making it extremely easy to maintain.
The Votator® II and the Extra Heavy Duty Votator® II replace the Thermutator® and standard Votator® units, and is also available as a vertical unit.
3-A, ASME,and PED Certified
Votator heat exchangers also come in extra heavy duty. These units are designed for heating and cooling products with viscosities in the 1,000,000 centipoise range. They can be specified with concentric, eccentric or oval heat transfer tubes to provide optimum processing conditions for any product.
Blade selection is based on many factors including compatibility with the heat exchanger tube material, product fluid characteristics, processing temperatures, and cost. Metal blades provide the best scraping properties, which means theoretically better heat transfer. However, metal blades are usually the most expensive, must run on a hard chrome surface and must be properly sharpened to avoid damaging the heat transfer tube. Today, with the development of new high temperature and FDA compliant plastic materials, there are alternatives to metal blades. The blade options below provides a wide range of our most popular blades. Many other options are also available.
