AMETEK Fluoropolymer Products is the leading solutions provider for extremely corrosive and ultrahigh purity applications. FPP products include fluoropolymer tubing, pipe, immersion coils and shell and tube heat exchangers. In fact, AMETEK FPP is the original and most-experienced manufacturer of fluoropolymer heat exchangers used in the production of acids and bases, chemical processing, metal finishing, and critical processes within the semiconductor industry.
FPP products are manufactured using the finest corrosion-resistance fluoropolymers available today which affords FPP customers a long service life, lower operational costs, improved operating efficiencies, and world class purity. In addition, AMETEK also offers silicon-based refractory filters and riser-breakers which are used in the metal casting and foundry industries to improve casting quality, productivity and employee safety.

Small (up to 6 feet in length), affordable heat exchangers suitable for low flow applications. Their design maximizes the heat transfer performance of FEP or PFA, as well as “Q” Series fluoropolymer tubing.
In lengths up to 11 feet, this series uses a single-pass, typically counter-current flow design. Tube bundles are joined together to create honeycomb tube sheets. Heads are fluoropolymer-lined, and the flexible tube bundle is easily removable for maintenance. Carbon steel shells are standard; other shell material is available on request. Metal shells are ASME coded and feature TEMA/ANSI end nozzle connections.
Single pass, typically countercurrent-flow units designed for heating, cooling and condensing. Flexible fluoropolymer tube bundles are joined together to form unique honeycomb tube sheets that add physical robustness.
Material choices include FEP or Q-Series tubing with PTFE-lined heads. Standard shell construction is carbon steel, with other shell materials available on request. Products are ASME coded and equipped with TEMA/ANSI end nozzle connections.
The difference between models 218, 525 and 1000 are the number of tubes per bundle, which increases the heat transfer area. Users should select the model that is right for the application based on length (2 to 24 feet) and heat transfer required.
AMETEK’s largest heat exchangers have 14-inch diameter shells and many fluoropolymer tubes, providing high flow capacity and low pressure drop. Shells are available in a variety of materials, including carbon steel, fluoropolymer-lined carbon steel, and stainless steel. Tube lengths available up to 24 feet.
