Plate and Frame heat exchangers use a combination of chevron-style heat transfer plates sequenced between a frame plate and pressure plate. The heat transfer plates have holes at the four corners forming a header that distribute the respective flows to the opposite sides of each plate when the plates align. The fluids are confined to the heat transfer surface of the plate or the port as appropriate with elastomer gaskets. Max Flow – up to 23,500 GPM with heat transfer areas up to 20,000 Sq. Ft. 1″ to 2.5″ NPT nozzle connections. 3″ to 18″ ANSI Studded connections.
Materials: 304 and 316 Stainless Steel, Titanium, SMO 254, Hastelloy, Incolloy, AL6XN Plates. Gaskets in Nitrile, EPDM, Viton, high temperature EPDM and high temperature Nitrile.
Applications: For close temperature approach of fluids to maximize heat recovery. Semi-welded Plateflow exceptional for refrigerant, aggressive chemical, or any applications where reducing the fluid’s contact with elastomers is desired. Free-Flow feature is ideal for heat reclamation in pulp and paper or chemical processing, where wash water, white water, fibrous water slurries or high viscosity fluids are used. Double wall plates to eliminate possibility of fluid intermixing.
