A plate heat exchanger is a type of heat exchanger that uses metal plates to transfer heat between two fluids. This has a major advantage over a conventional heat exchanger in that the fluids are exposed to a much larger surface area because the fluids spread out over the plates. This facilitates the transfer of heat and greatly increases the speed of the temperature change. Larger commercial versions use gaskets between the plates, whereas smaller versions tend to be brazed. When liquid passes through a heat exchanger, it can be used to cool or heat fluid for a multitude of applications. These types of units are regularly used to bring down the temperatures of beverages, including beer, soft drinks and during the pasteurisation of milk.
We recommend the deployment of plate heat exchangers in scenarios where the pressure is too high, temperatures are too high or too low, or when fluids must be kept separate so no contamination can take place. Our heat exchangers are also frequently used in manufacturing and process industries, for chemicals, oil and other fluids.
