Plate heat exchangers use corrugated plates stacked between a fixed and movable pressure plate. As virtually all of the material is used for heat transfer, plate heat exchangers can have large amounts of effective heat transfer surface in a small footprint. It is not uncommon that a plate heat exchanger will have the same thermal capacity as a shell and tube five times larger. Our plate heat exchangers incorporate superior design features to ensure long-term performance and customer satisfaction.
A plate heat exchanger is a type of heat transfer device that uses a series of thin metal plates to transfer heat between two fluids. The plates are typically made of stainless steel or titanium, and are arranged in a series with channels for the two fluids to flow through. As the fluids pass through the channels, heat is transferred between them through the walls of the plates. Plate heat exchangers are commonly used in a variety of industrial and HVAC applications where efficient, compact heat transfer is required. They are often preferred over other types of heat exchangers due to their high heat transfer efficiency, relatively low cost, and ease of maintenance.
