I'm looking for information on a graphite block heat exchanger. The data plate says "Falls Heat Exchanger Carborundum Kennecott 39-08115, serial number C1405, year 1982," along with some pressure and temperature limits. I have been unable to find anything on-line about this unit, and was wondering if you had any ideas on obtaining info about it. Specifically, I need to disassemble, re-gasket and reassemble it. While this seems straightforward at first, I've gotten myself into a few pickles over the years by not knowing some "trick" or two up front before going in. Any ideas you may have would be greatly appreciated.
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: Rebuilding a graphite block heat exchanger19 September 2006 at 1:29pmI do not have mechanical expertise in the rebuild of exchangers and cannot provide you with any good tricks, however SGL Carbon Group manufactures this style of exchanger and you may be able to contact someone there to gather assistance. Try http://www.sglcarbon.com/gs/prodser/process/blockheat.html for more information and contacts. There may also be other manufacturers which you may be able to find on the Thomas Register web site at www.thomasnet.com.
