heat ex changer suppliers | Abrar Exim Enterprise A plate heat ex changer is a type of heat ex changer that uses metal plates to transfer heat between two fluids. This has a major advantage over a conventional heat ex changer in that the fluids are exposed to a much larger surface area because the fluids spread out over the plates. This facilitates the transfer of heat, and greatly increases the speed of the temperature change. Plate heat ex-changers are now common and very small brazed versions are used in the hot-water sections of millions of combination boilers.heat exchanger suppliers
Plate Heat Exchange rs have a high heat transfer rate compared to other types of heat ex-changers due to their large surface area. They are composed of a number of thin metal plates compressed together into a ‘plate pack’ by two pressure plates. Within a plate heat ex changer, the fluid paths alternate between plates allowing the two fluids to interact, but not mix, several times in a small area. Each plate is corrugated to increase the surface area and maximize heat transfer. Plate Heat Ex-changers have a number of applications in the pharmaceutical, petrochemical, chemical, power, industrial dairy, and food & beverage industry.heat exchanger suppliers
Types of Plate Heat Exchange rs
There are four main types of plate heat ex-changers : Gasketed, Brazed Plate, Welded, and Semi-Welded. API Schmidt-Britten offers all four types. Each type is suited for a number of applications in various industrial fields.heat exchanger suppliers
Advantages of Plate Heat Exchangers (PHE)
- Low investment, operation and maintenance costs.
- Highly efficient heat transfer (K- values on average 3-5 times higher than in case of bare-tube heat exchangers).
- Asymmetrical flow gap available for the most costeffective solution.
- Use of smallest temperature difference
- Up to 75% less space required.
- Self-cleaning effect due to highly turbulent flow behaviour
- Future additional capacity is possible by fitting extra heat transfer plates.
- Double gasket with leak groove gives high safety with regards to media mixing.
- Easy to open/clean.
- Low operating weight/ low liquid content.
