Malaysia’s Exclusive Distributor of ARES Plate Heat Exchangers
The ARES Plate heat exchanger (PHE) is a type of heat exchanger that uses metal plates sealed with gaskets to transfer heat between a hot fluid and a cold fluid. It consists of a frame, which consists of a front cover, rear (movable) parts, carrying bar, guiding bar, and a number of tie bolts depending on the type of the plate heat exchanger.
The heat is transferred from one medium to another through plates, which have been pressed. The hot and cold medium flows through between each of the plates and then they exchange their heat without mixing each other.
Liquid flowing through the PHE channels experience turbulent flow at low velocities producing high heat transfer efficiency and low fouling which results in smaller and a compact unit. A PHE has wide industrial applications especially in HVAC, oil and gas, power generation, edible oil etc.
Plate Heat Exchanger Structure
AWG Series – Wide Gap Plates
AWG Series consists of only wide gap plates. Compare to A Series plates, AWG plates have 5.5 mm to 12 mm plate gap which makes them easier to use in applications where contamination in the fluid is high.
ASW Series – Semi Welded Plates
A cassette contains two plates laser welded together. The advantage of this method is; one side has a welded plate channel and the other side has a traditional plate channel with gaskets. On the welded side, there are two specially produced corner hole gaskets creating the sealing between two cassettes. Thus, the gasket exposure to the fluid is reduced to a minimum on welded side.
ADP Series – Double Wall Plates
Two plates lair-welded together to ensure safety. For applications such as pharmaceutical industry, food & beverage, district heating, cooling of transformer oil, etc, where it is crucial that medium are not mixed.
A plate heat exchanger unit consists of frame, carry bar, supporting bar, tightening rod and bolts, plates and gaskets.
The lifespan of a plate heat exchanger is around 10 years in full working order and could be longer if maintenance is properly and regularly conducted.
Like all mechanical equipment, heat exchangers require a regimen of regular maintenance. Fouling and corrosion are two of the common causes of performance degradation. The common practice of cleaning the heat exchanger is by rinsing, chemical cleaning, and changing the plates’ gasket if deem necessary.
Plate heat exchangers are used in applications where liquid heating or cooling is required. They are used in various working application such as textile industries, food and beverages industries, steel industries and surface treatment. They’re also used for economizer circuits and heat recovery circuits to reduce the cooling load on the chillers.
Plate heat exchanger consist of a series of parallel plates that are placed one above the other to allow the formation of a series of channels for fluids to flow between them. The heat exchanger consists of four channels which are cold side inlet and outlet and hot side inlet and outlet. The fluid flows from the inlet from both hot and cold side and the movement of the fluids will increase its temperature on the cold side and reduce in temperature in the hot side.
A plate heat exchanger is a type of heat exchanger that uses metal plates to transfer heat between two fluids. Basically, the heat is transfer between two plates which would make the liquids increase and reduce in temperature.
