Accu-Therm Refurbishing

Accu-Therm Service and Refurbishing Program

Are you experiencing:
  • increased pressure drops through your plate heat exchanger?
  • loss of heat transfer efficiency?
  • loss of flow and performance?
  • process fluid leakage?

Mueller can help!

These are common occurrences caused by dirt accumulation, fouling, scaling, or gasket deterioration. Allowing the situation to continue risks production losses, unscheduled downtime, increased costs, and potential safety hazards.

Mueller provides a solution to these problems with our complete Accu-Therm plate heat exchanger servicing and refurbishing program.

The next time you find your Accu-Therm plate heat exchanger isn't meeting your performance needs, let Mueller return your heat exchanger to its peak operating efficiency.
