API Heat Transfer PLAC Series

Pipeline Aftercooler

The Basco PLAC (Pipeline Aftercooler) and its companion separator provide an ideal combination to remove troublesome moisture and oil from compressed air streams. Our aftercoolers/separators offer proven performance and trouble-free operation of air powered tools and equipment worldwide.

PLAC tubes are effectively arranged to maximize heat transfer and reduce cooling water usage
Removable tube bundle simplifies cleaning of both tube and shell sides, and reduces future maintenance costs
Double packed floating tubesheet with “O” ring seal protection permits tube bundles to expand and contract without harmful strain or intermixing of shell and tube side fluids
Tell-tale holes allow easy visual detection of leaks
Cast iron moisture separator provides maximum efficiency in removing virtually all particulate matter over the entire operating range
Separators are designed to bolt directly to the aftercooler without the need for spools, minimizing pressure drop and overall length
Standard operating pressures are 75 to 150 PSI to meet most material and code requirements; units for use up to 300 PSI are available for specialized applications
