A plate heat exchanger unit consists of frame, carry bar, supporting bar, tightening rod and bolts, plates and gaskets.
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
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.
