Maintenance

Maintenance-friendly coolers

We have brought two unique cooler solutions to the market, challenging competitors in plate coolers and box coolers. Considering the way our technology has been received in terms of sales, and praise from prominent players in the market, we honestly believe we have started to change the industry's perception of how maintenance-friendly marine coolers can be.

Research & testing

Research & testing

The development of the proprietary Sperre Pleat cooler technology is based on a meticulous research and development programme during the last four years at Sperre. As a part of this programme, markets have been researched, methods for industrialization have been evaluated, end-users have been interviewed, and prototypes have been continuously field-tested in commercial operation – all with compelling and outstanding results.

​Significant savings

Significant savings

To strengthen our assumptions regarding the demand in the marine industry, we have had discussions with ship owners, engineers, officers, ship designers, shipbuilders and engine suppliers to reveal current practice. The unambiguous answers we have received tell us that there is a significant potential for savings due to easier maintenance of coolers.

Sperre's solution

Sperre's solution

The Sperre Pleat solution has many similarities with conventional plate coolers, which have been widely used in the marine industry for decades. But there is one major difference: ease of maintenance. All heat exchangers need to be disassembled and cleaned periodically to prevent pressure drop due to fouling and other pollutants. With the Sperre Pleat cooler, the cleaning challenges related to seawater as a cooling source have been solved, increasing uptime for the vessel, and enabling an efficient and problem-free working day for the crew.
