Steve Lewis LLC dba
The sanitary Accu-Therm plate heat exchanger is designed to meet a variety of sanitary process applications and it meets or surpasses the most stringent sanitary requirements for human consumption.
Accu-Therm plate heat exchangers are designed to provide you worry-free, highly efficient heat transfer whether you are processing simple fluids, viscous solutions, or particulates. Accu-Therm plate heat exchangers are available in an extensive range of sizes, alloys, and frame configurations to meet your exact needs.
When you design around a Mueller brazed plate heat exchanger, you know what to expect in your finished product.
Mueller offers one of the world's largest range of brazed plate heat exchangers and the program is constantly being expanded. Many of these units are available in stock and can be shipped the next day in most cases.
Since 1940, the Paul Mueller Company has manufactured high quality stainless steel equipment. The work of our dedicated artisans and fabricators is known worldwide on dairy farms and in a wide variety of industrial applications.
Lewis Mechanical Sales is your manufacturer representative for Mueller heat exchangers in South Texas.
Features and Benefits:
High Efficiency Heat Transfer Performance
Easy to Clean and Inspect
Close Approach Temperatures
Multiple Duties with a Single Unit
High Viscosity Applications
Cross Contamination Eliminated
"Free-Flow" Plate Heat Exchangers
Mueller also offers the expandable, lightweight Accu-Therm "Free-Flow" plate heat exchanger, featuring a clever heat transfer plate designed with a more open fluid-flow channel, making it ideal for viscous products, slurries, and effluent streams that contain particles and fibers which can block the flow channels and plug up conventional heat exchangers. Each medium is individually gasketed in the "Free-Flow" plate heat exchanger, making it ideal for applications where product contamination cannot be tolerated. In addition, these compact units are easy to disassemble and clean, which means less downtime and cost during maintenance.

a Plate Heat Exchanger
The tools may have change since 1940, but at the Paul Mueller company, we still make your products with our hands. We call our employees artisans because they invest time, energy and emotion into their daily science and art, activities which others call work. You are an artisan when “acceptable” isn’t in your vocabulary, when “done” means “I’ll proudly put my name on it,” when what you make will outlive you.
Craftsmen, welders, fabricators, production workers, engineers, project managers, truck drivers, purchasing specialists, customer service representatives, designers, customer representatives, quality assurance specialists, training and safety personnel. Just a few of the skilled artisans working together to provide the world, quality crafted stainless steel products.
We produce the highest quality processing equipment that meets or surpasses the most stringent sanitary and temperature performance control standards in the food and dairy processing industry. All this at competitive prices!
No Clog Design
Our "free-flow" plates allow easy flow of viscous liquids and fluids that can clog conventional plate heat exchangers.
In-house manufacturing and a large inventory of components allow quick assembly and shipment.
We offer a wide variety of plate sizes.
Design and Construction
Mueller's brazed plate heat exchangers contain up to 200 herringbone-pattern-embossed plates of stainless steel construction. Every other plate is turned 180°, causing the ridges of adjacent plates to intersect one another, thus forming a lattice of contact points.
When these points are subsequently brazed together, the resulting unit is a compact, pressure-resistant heat exchanger in which almost all material is involved in the heat transfer process.
The brazed plates form two separate channel systems. The two media assume a true countercurrent flow, completely isolated from each other. This channel configuration is designed to produce high turbulence, promoting maximum heat transfer.
Brazed plate heat exchangers give you the opportunity to design more compact engineered systems.
You can install a more cost effective, superior solution to your heat transfer applications.
Reduce cooling media volume, further reducing the cost of fluid handling systems and energy consumption.
Simplify maintenance and repair.
We keep sizable inventory levels for next day shipments.
Brazed plate heat exchangers can be used for a variety of refrigerant applications:
