Thermo Scientific™ DHX™ heat exchanger

Our innovative modular system uses single-use BioProcess Containers (BPCs) as the sterile fluid path. The BPCs fit tightly between five stainless steel plates, efficiently transferring heat in a counter-current flow path. The sterile, single-use fluid path makes the system an ideal choice for heat transfer during fermentation, collection of harvest media and protein processing. The DHX™ Heat Exchanger provides efficient, sterile heat transfer that easily integrates into any process.


Benefits of the DHX heat exchanger
  • Completely isolated flow paths for process fluid and heat transfer fluid
  • Countercurrent, serpentine flow patterns
  • Dimpled jacketing on the plates provides turbulent flow
  • BPCs fill in place with no operator interaction
  • Modular design and small footprint allows for changing process needs
  • Reduced infrastructure requirements and processing time
  • Improved product consistency
