Heat Exchanger Plate Pressure Drop
In the design and selection of plate heat exchangers, there is a certain requirement for pressure drop, so it should be checked. If the check pressure drop exceeds the allowable pressure drop, the design selection calculation must be repeated until the process requirements are met.
The plate type or corrugated type should be determined according to the actual needs of the heat exchange occasion. For the case where the flow rate is large and the pressure drop is small, the plate type with low resistance should be selected, otherwise the plate type with large resistance should be selected. Depending on the fluid pressure and temperature, it is determined whether the detachable or brazed type is selected.
WTSML offers at least two plate types for each size of the plate, using thermal mixing technology to combine the phe heat transfer and pressure drop to operate at the optimum operating point. The internal bypass, double-flow technology and unequal flow cross-sectional area provide a perfect solution for the flow difference between the two sides.
