Plate Type Heat Exchanger Gasket Material
The plate heat exchanger has a compact structure, small gap. So heat transfer area per unit volume increased, the installation area is about 1/2 to 1/3 of the shell-and-tube type, which can save floor space and construction cost, and each volume is 1M3, the heat transfer area is about 80㎡. The plate heat exchanger is an important component in the heat exchange technology of process industrial equipment. The elastic gasket that seals between the various plate is a consumable part and is also an easily aging part under natural conditions. Its service life has an important influence on the service life of the plate heat exchanger. If these seals heat harden and lose their original elasticity, the heat exchanger will not work properly.
Neoprene has good oil and solvent resistance. It has good resistance to gear oil and transformer oil, but it is not resistant to aromatic oils. Neoprene also has excellent weathering and ozone aging properties.Neoprene also has good corrosion resistance to inorganic acids. In addition, since the neoprene rubber also has good flexibility and gas impermeability, it can be formed into a sealing article for a diaphragm and a vacuum.
