In the world of heat exchangers, fouling is a persistent challenge that affects efficiency and performance. With KLAREN Technology, TAPROGGE proudly offers a sustainable solution to this issue: the self-cleaning fluidized heat exchanger (learn more: https://klarenbv.com/operating-principle/)

We prepare to showcase the KLAREN Technology at esteemed exhibitions worldwide during 2023.

We invite industry professionals to visit/meet us, to discuss their fouling-related problems and to  learn how this revolutionary technology elevates heat exchanger efficiency while preserving the environment.

We have a smart solution. Special additions to the heat exchangers that help shell and tube heat exchangers to work better with additional benefits. How?

  • Online and inline continuous Tube Cleaning: Our heat exchangers clean themselves! The cleaning media do not allow fouling deposits to stay on the tube surface.
  • Saving Energy: With up to zero fouling operations, we keep the heat transfer at a constant level and save energy. Our secondary benefit of reducing apparent viscosity also helps to lower the pumping power requirement.

About Taprogge

TAPROGGE is a global cleantech specialist. The company provides the market with tailor-made solutions which maximize efficiency and improve the availability of water and thermal circulating systems in large power stations and seawater desalination plants.

TAPROGGE is regarded as an innovator and leader in this market segment. TAPROGGE is now among the world’s leading companies that offer energy-saving solutions which also cut CO2-emissions.

About KLAREN Technology

TAPROGGE offers with competent brand KLAREN Technology continuous cleaning solutions for either new or existing heat exchangers. A fluidized bed of solid particles is used at the tube side of the self-cleaning heat exchangers (to create a scouring effect) where the fouling liquid flows through and removes the developing fouling layer. This technology can be applied in many industries, including chemicals, and can help to achieve up to zero-fouling operations in the heater, cooler, and reboiler systems.

We design, engineer, and commission the self-cleaning fluidized bed heat exchangers. For the manufacturing of the heat exchangers, we collaborate with (local) manufacturing companies worldwide. With this technology, fouling or clogging of heat exchangers can be prevented or minimized. The fluidized bed effectively handles many types of fouling including scaling, whether hard or soft, originating from biological, crystallization, chemical, or particulate fouling mechanisms, or a combination of these. A wide variety of fluids can be handled ranging from aqueous solutions to oils and slurries.

Advantages of the KLAREN technology

Improved energy performance

The energy performance is improved through continuous cleaning of the heat exchanger tubes. This ensures constant heat transfer. Because tubes remain clean, and the heat transfer is constant

Enhanced production capacity

The heat exchangers remain operational during cleaning. As a result, the production capacity remains constant or even increases.

Sustainable process

Chemicals are not required when using self-cleaning technology. Therefore, cleaning of your heat exchangers doesn’t result in hazardous waste streams.

Compact design

Oversizing is no longer necessary due to constant heat transfer. This makes our designs compact.

KLAREN Technology has got immense popularity in the Wastewater, Energy, and Chemical industries in recent years.
