A baffle plate is a plate designed to restrain or regulate the flow of fluid. Baffles are components of shell and tube heat exchangers which are used to support and fix the tubes in a defined position.
The main machining process for baffle plates is drilling. Baffle plates are thin and are often machined by stacking multiple plates, so it is necessary to handle stacked plate drilling.
Tungaloy’s innovative drilling products are designed to handle highly difficult drilling processes, such as stacked plate drilling, for improved productivity.
