Phe plate heat exchanger is an important component of heat exchange technology in process industrial equipment. The elastomeric PHE gasket which is sealed between the plates is a consumable and is an easy-to-aged part under natural conditions. Its service life has an important effect on the service life of compact plate heat exchanger. The cross flow plate heat exchanger can not work if these gasketing sealing is hardened and lost original elasticity.
Channel plate gasket should be replaced periodically to maintain function and avoid unnecessary shutdowns.EPDM is used normally for non-fatty/oily applications, and NBR for oil/fat applications.However, there are no rules without exceptions. An "oil" and fatty application may have a low fat content, making the application more suitable for EPDM instead of NBR.
