Alfa Laval Plate Heat Exchanger Catalogue
Plate heat exchanger is an efficient, energy-saving heat exchange equipment, which have many advantages such as high heat transfer coefficient, compact structure, less consumables, various types and easy maintenance etc. The application field has been gradually expanded and has been widely used in machinery, electric power, and metallurgy. Chemicals, textiles, beverages, urban heating and other industries.
The plate heat exchanger is made of sheet metal (usually 0.1-1mm thickness) as a heat exchange element,which is made by pressing a thin plate of stainless steel, industrial pure titanium or other materials such as SMO254,Hastelloy C-200,Hastelloy C-276,Nickel.Usually, Using the mould to press plate into various grooves or corrugated shapes.It increase the plate rigidity to prevent deformation when pressed. It’s also increase the degree of fluid turbulence and heat exchange area.Each plate has four corner holes and sealing gasket groove round.heat exchanger gasket is placed in the required corner hole and groove to allow fluid or prevent fluid entering the plate channel
Heat Exchanger plate design are made with two different pressing patterns-one is characterized by an obtuse angle giving a high theta plate, the other with an acute angle giving a low theta plate.
