UNMATCHED EXPERTISE IN THERMAL & BULK MATERIALS ENGINEERING
Our patented solutions can be found globally, with more than 900 projects in 50-plus countries and counting.
At Solex, we are more than just a heat exchanger manufacturer. We apply proven thermal science in innovative ways to find better, more efficient solutions to challenges both known and new.
Starting out as a division of Cominco Engineering Services (CESL) in 1989, the company was divided in 1999 to become Bulkflow Technologies. Today, we are known as Solex Thermal Science — and we have been pioneering technology in the science of heating, cooling, and drying of free-flowing granular materials such as solid granules, pellets, beans, seeds and particles ever since. Our patented solutions can be found globally, with more than 900 projects in 50-plus countries and counting.
In 2019, we continued to solidify our expertise in thermal and bulk materials engineering by joining forces with Netherlands-based Mosman Stainless Steel, a worldwide leader in stainless steel. Made possible through a joint investment by the private equity firm Anders Invest B.V., our combined company provides customers with made-to-order solutions from an integrated producer of heat exchange technology that has more than 150 years of combined experience.

Optimized fertilizer cooling
Solex moving bed heat exchange technology guarantee highly efficient thermal performance and ongoing reliable operation for cooling fertilizer without product caking. The proprietary process, which uses vertically orientated plates to indirectly cool the product, is designed for long-term operation without the need for regular cleaning as the unit prevents the formation of condensation and therefore product caking.
Each unit is custom designed taking into account:
• Type of fertilizer
• Required thermal performance
• Local ambient conditions
• Selection of optimum water temperatures
• Selection of optimum purge air flow rate and dewpoint to prevent condensation
