(1) Convenient Cleaning And Service
After the pressure plate of the plate heat exchanger is removed, the plate pack can be released, then removed plate and mechanically cleaned.
(2)Simply change the heat exchange area and plate arrangement
It is only necessary to add (or reduce) the heat exchanger plate to reach the heat exchange area that needs to be added (or cut).
(3)The price is low
Under the premise of using the same application, because the material requires less than tube heat excghanger, the production cost must be lower than that of the shell-and-tube heat exchanger.
The thickness of the plate heat exchanger is only 0.5~0.8mm, and the thickness of the heat exchange tube of the shell-and-tube heat exchanger is 2.0~2.5mm; the shell is heavier than frame set.. In the case of the same heat transfer mission, the heat exchange area required for the plate heat exchanger is smaller than that of the shell-and-tube heat exchanger.
(5) Small footprint
The structure of the plate heat exchanger is compact, and the heat exchange area per unit volume is 2 to 5 times than shell-and-tube heat exchanger. It does not require the maintenance of the extraction control as the shell-and-tube heat exchanger, In the same heat transfer mission, the plate heat exchanger covers an area of about 1/5 to 1/10 of the shell-and-tube heat exchanger.
