Gasketed Plate Heat Exchanger Advantages

The advantages of gasketed plate heat exchanger include:

(1)Convenient clean:After the pressure plate of the plate heat exchanger is removed, the bundle can be released, the plate removed, and mechanically cleaned.

(2)Simply change the heat exchange area or process combination:It is only necessary to add (or reduce) the sheet to reach the heat exchange area that needs to be added (or cut).

(3)The price is not high:Under the premise of using the same information, because the layout requires less information, the production cost is lower than the shell-and-tube heat exchanger.

(4)Light weight

The thickness of the plate heat exchanger is only 0.6~0.8mm, and the thickness of the heat exchange tube of the shell-and-tube heat exchanger is 2.0~2.5mm; the shell of the shell-and-tube heat exchanger is heavier than the frame of the plate heat exchanger. In the case of the same heat transfer mission, the heat exchange area required for the plate heat exchanger is smaller than the shell-and-tube heat exchanger.

(5)Small footprint

The plate heat exchanger has a compact layout, and the heat exchange area per unit volume is 2 to 5 times that of the shell-and-tube heat exchanger. It does not require the maintenance of the extraction control as the shell-and-tube heat exchanger, thus completing the same ln the heat transfer mission, the plate heat exchanger covers an area of about 1/5 to 1/10 of the shell-and-tube heat exchanger.

(6)High heat transfer coefficient

The layout of the shell-and-tube heat exchanger is excellent in terms of strength, but it is not ambiguous from the viewpoint of heat exchange. Because the fluid moves in the shell process, there are baffles - shells, baffles - exchange Heat pipe, control - bypass between the shell. The fluid passing through these bypasses does not fully participate in the heat exchange. In the plate heat exchanger, there is no bypass, and the corrugation of the plate allows the fluid to turbulent at a small flow rate. Therefore, the plate heat exchanger has a high heat transfer coefficient, which is usually 3 to 5 times that of the shell-and-tube heat exchanger.
