Plate Heat Exchangers (PHE) are heat exchangers made of thin sheets of corrosion resistant metals compressed in between two metal frames. The function of a Plate heat exchanger is to cool down or heat up a particular flowing liquid. This is done by applying thermodynamics concepts to transfer heat from two counter current flowing liquids of different temperatures.
The heat transfer Plates are made of thin sheets of corrosion resistant metals such as stainless steel or titanium that are press-formed with a corrugated pattern on the surface and sealed with synthetic rubber gaskets, which seals the flow channel and directs the fluid into alternate channels. Such Plates are suspended, supported and aligned by guide bars and are tightened with bolts between a fixed and a moveable frame. The overall heat duty can be adjusted by modifying the number of heat exchanging Plates.
BHE are created by layering stainless steel plates and a brazing material such as copper or nickel and then heating the brazing material to a temperature exceeding 1100°C in a vacuum furnace prior melting the brazing material to solidify and integrate the plates with one and another.
The Spiral Heat Exchanger (SHE) is made from two long metal plates around a core to form two concentric spiral flow passages, one for each fluid.
THe plate edfes are welded one side for each fluid. Channel plate width and spacing are optimized for the specific duty, maximum heat transfer and ease of access.
The plate gap is maintained by piece which are called distance piece. We also have optional model which do not require them.
Related to these structure, Spiral Heat Exchanger has unique advantages over other type of heat exchanger such as shell & tube.
