Brazed plate heat exchangers are a popular option with their compact size and high efficiency design. They are composed of a number of plate elements, each of which comprises two thin nested plates, the elements defining flow spaces between them, with adjacent elements being joined around their periphery by brazing bent edge portions.
Brazed plate units are up to six times smaller than alternative methods of heat exchange with the same capacity. The significance lies in their unique construction of stainless steel plates brazed together with every plate turned 180 degrees in opposition to each other. This design creates two highly turbulent fluid channels that flow in opposite directions over a massive surface area with significantly higher heat transfer coefficient over less required surface area.
Features & Benefits
Compact: Lower shipping and installation costs, and their lightweight design makes maneuvering much easier than alternatives.
Durable: The brazing process welds the plates together at thousands of contact points in each unit. The benefits are easily recognized, exceptional durability along with higher operating pressures and temperatures.
Low-Maintenance: The induced turbulence reduces fouling offering superior corrosion resistance.
Low Investment: Assembled from a small number of machine formed parts results in reduced manufacturing time and end user costs.
