Plate Heat Exchanger
The plate heat exchanger consists of a pack of corrugated metal plates with portholes for the passage of the two fluids between which heat transfer will take place. The plate pack is assembled between a frame plate and a pressure plate and compressed by tightening bolts.
Function of Plate Heat Exchangers
The plates are fitted with a gasket which seals the channel and directs the fluids into alternate channels. The number and size of the plates are determined by the flow rate, physical properties of the fluids, pressure drop and temperature program. The plate corrugations promote fluid turbulence and support the plates against differential pressure. The plates and the pressure plate are suspended from an upper carrying bar and located by a lower guiding bar both of which are fixed to the support columns. Connections are located in the frame cover, or if either or both fluids make more than a single pass within the unit, the frame and pressure plates. We are in the process of developing the Plate Heat Exchanger and would take up the manufacturing in the near future.

Equivalent to other Heat Exchangers
If you are unhappy with the original design of plate heat exchangers, send us the operating specifications and improvements required and we will offer a suitable replacement heatexchangers. We can also provide a shell and tube equivalent, if you would prefer to have a unit that is more easily repaired on our factory .
