Welcome to our blog! Read about interesting stories and challenges of the industries that Solex partners with.

Planting a seed

Vertical plate conditioner is giving oilseed processors an upstream solution to seamlessly increase capacity, reduce energy consumption and optimally condition seeds prior to extraction.

5 tips from Technical Services

Sitting down with Peter Menchenton of Solex's leadership team to get his insights into five ways customers will work with Technical Services – including tips beyond commissioning on how to get the most out of existing equipment. 

What's next for Solex

Solex Thermal Science introduces re-organized sales team that reflects evolving markets and applications for our indirect plate heat exchange technology in strategic regions and product lines.

A better bean

Moving bed heat exchangers that use vertical plate technology are giving commercial roasters unique opportunities to better accept out-of-spec beans at lower prices without adversely impacting the final recipe.

Beany business

Q&A with Caroline Richard, senior process engineer with Solex Thermal Science, on the role pre-heating plays in production process of beans, nuts or cereals and grains. 

A new way at Solex

Solex Thermal Science announces changes to its sales leadership team to reflect the evolving market and applications of indirect plate heat exchange technology.

‘Super’ solution to fertilizer caking

Caking has long been the kryptonite for fertilizer producers. In the latest issue of World Fertilizer Magazine, Igor Makarenko, Global Director, Fertilizer for Solex Thermal Science, discusses how using indirect plate-type heat exchangers are giving fertilizer producers new hope.

An intro to bean heater modules

Conditioning of soy beans is a critical yet energy-intensive process in achieving target efficiency in oil extraction plants. It is also a good heat sink for utilizing waste heat from the rest of the plant. Solex indirect plate heat exchangers provide high density of heat transfer area within a compact design that allows for very efficient utilization of the recovered energy. 

Procedure for cleaning exchanger plate interior

Heat exchangers can suffer from fouling caused by microorganisms, deposition of solids or scaling from calcium found in the water passed through the plates. Fouling can decrease thermal efficiency and increase pressure drop, both of which can negatively impact plant operations. Here, we provide tips on a fast, environmentally friendly cleaning procedure.
