Tranter present at the 50th edition of the OTC

Next 30 April, Tranter, for whom Laygo Gaskets distributes plate heat exchangers in Spain and Portugal, will attend as an exhibitor at the OTC 2018 (Offshore Technology Conference) in Houston (Texas) – the main global event of the maritime energy industry that this year celebrates its 50th edition.

Main advantages offered by the OTC to its attendees

The OTC is the place where energy professionals attend to exchange ideas and opinions with the aim of having advanced scientific and technical knowledge of maritime resources.

In addition, thanks to the OTC, the attendee can access cutting-edge technical information provided by leading speakers including government officials, scientists and engineers; the industry’s largest equipment showcase; and valuable new professional contacts from around the world.

In addition, and as a consequence of having wide international participation, it also offers great advantages in the global exchange of technology, experience, products and best practices  That is why the OTC brings together industry leaders, investors, buyers and entrepreneurs to develop markets and establish trade partnerships.

The role of Tranter plate heat exchangers in the maritime sector

The main characteristic of Tranter heat exchangers is their ability to transmit heat through plates rather than tubes. This provides high heat transfer efficiency and very low pollution, a fact that makes them ideal for use in the maritime sector as they are also very efficient compact units.

The space saving – but also the weight saving – is beneficial for the thermal circuits that can be found on a ship.  And, in turn, heat exchangers are able to withstand the harmful effects of seawater.

Moreover, Tranter’s strong presence in the global market and more than 85 years’ experience allows it to offer a wide range of plate heat exchangers with gaskets and fittings that consolidate it as one of the leading manufacturers in other sectors such as chemical and hydrocarbon processing, oil and gas production, power generation and renewable energy, refrigeration and HVAC, and industry in general.
