Plate Heat Exchanger Plates

Optimization of plate heat exchangers: To achieve any improvement in plate heat exchangers, there are two main factors, the amount of heat transfer and the pressure drop have to be considered. The plate heat exchanger geometry is very important factor in heat transfer and the pressure drop in the plate heat exchangers. The higher heat transfer and the less pressure drop are usually targeted. For the industrial applications that are affected by the pressure drop, the plate heat exchanger shape is very important.

The plate type heat exchanger is the most efficient type of heat exchangers comparing to shell and tube, spiral or any other heat exchangers. Plate heat exchangers offer the best solution for thermal problems, by giving a wide pressure and temperature limits.

To evaluate plate heat exchangers:

From outside all plate heat exchangers look the same. Most of the differences found inside of them, in the sealing technology used Gaskets and the plate design. Meanwhile, to evaluate a plate heat exchanger, we need not only to explore the details of the product but also, we need to analyze the level of research and development done by the manufacturer and post commissioning service and spare parts availability.

Here are some of the most notable advantages of a plate heat exchangers:

Flexibility: Plate Heat Exchanger has a framework consists of heat transfer plates. Therefor it can be easily extended to increase capacity. Gasketed plate heat exchangers are easy to open and get cleaned.

Has got high turbulence in the media: which gives higher convection and results in efficient heat transfer. That gives higher heat transfer and more efficient operation. The high turbulence contributes also as self-cleaning effect.

Compact: That plate heat exchangers take much less space than shell and tube types.

Variable thermal length: When plates have a narrow pattern, pressure drop gets higher and the heat exchanger is more effective. This is called long thermal channel heat exchanger type. On the other hand, when plates have a wide pattern, pressure drop gets smaller and the heat transfer coefficient accordingly is smaller somehow. This is called short thermal channel heat exchanger type.

In today’s highly competitive, technology world, Plate heat exchangers are the most demanded by every industry, commercial or governmental entity. For their cost effectiveness, efficiency, high performance, minimal maintenance/service.

Plate & frame heat exchangers have been the superior in satisfying daily needs over many other types of heat exchangers. Heat exchangers are daily performing critical duties in a wide variety of applications around the world.

In chemical and petrochemical plants, high alloy and stainless-steel plates have been performing extensive duties. Titanium plates on space saving shipboard units are being utilized in a variety of seawater cooling duties.

Design of plate and frame heat exchangers:

PHE or plate heat exchanger has a special design that is suited to transfer heat between media and low-pressure fluids. Brazed heat exchangers, semi-welded and welded are used for heat exchange between high-pressure fluids or where a more compact product is required. The plates used in a plate and frame heat exchanger are obtained by one piece pressing of metal plates. Stainless steel is a commonly used metal for the plates because of its ability to withstand high temperatures, its strength, and its corrosion resistance. Plates mostly spaced by a rubber sealing called gaskets, that are cemented/glued into the section around the edge of the plate. The plates then pressed so they can form troughs at the right angles and to the direction of the flow of the liquid running within the channels inside the heat exchanger. The troughs are arranged to interlink with the other plates which forms the channel with gaps of 1.3–1.5 mm between the plates. The plates produce an extremely large surface area, which allows for the fastest possible transfer.

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 are spread out over the plates.

Plate heat exchanger plates, heat transfer involve bringing two substances at different temperatures close to each other, so the one cools or heats the other. Means that the paid for energy is already within the system and can be simply transferred to another part of process where it can be put to effect. This will save the energy, the costs, and reduce the environmental impact of the production.

Usually while selecting the optimal heat exchangers, there are some challenges involving many variables. In order to select an appropriate heat exchanger, system designers/equipment vendors should first of all consider the design limitations for every heat exchanger type. Also, cost is most often a major criterion, there are more criteria that has importance when selection process.

  • High/low pressure
  • Temperature ranges
  • Thermal performance
  • Pressure drops across the exchanger
  • Product mix (liquid/liquid, particulates or high-solids liquid)
  • Fluid capacity
  • Cleanability maintenance and repair
  • Ability and ease of expansion
  • Materials required for construction
  • Material selection, as copper, aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel, nickel alloys, ceramic, polymer, and titanium.

      • Lube coolers
      • HT coolers

The plate type heat exchanger is the most efficient type of heat exchangers comparing to shell and tube, spiral or any other heat exchangers. Plate heat exchangers offer the best solution for thermal problems, by giving a wide pressure and temperature limits.

Heat Exchanger Plates:

Transferring Heat should involves bringing two substances at different degree of temperatures to each other, so that one either cools or heats the other. In a way that energy already within the system and is transferred to another part of the process where it can used for another effect. This process will save money and energy, and reduces the environmental impact of the production process. Plates of heat transfers are characterized by optimum embossing, resulting in high heat transfer coefficients.

How to select the plate:

Heat transfer plates are supplied as standard in material grade AISI304, AISI316L, Titanium, Titanium-Pd, SMO254, Hastelloy respectively, due to its corrosion-resistance and easy cleaning.

How the plate heat exchanger works:

The transfer area of Gasketed Plate Heat Exchanger is made of series of corrugated plates, assembled between frame and pressure plates. Gaskets are the seals between plates. The fluids normally flow counter-currently through the heat exchanger. Which gives the most efficient thermal performance and enables close temperature approach.

How to optimize plate heat exchangers:

When improving the PHEs or plate heat exchangers, we should put on mind two important factors, first the amount of heat transferred and the pressure drop have to be considered. That the pressure drop must be decreased and the amount of heat transfer must be increased.

The geometry of the plate heat exchanger is very important factor in heat transfer and pressure drop in plate heat exchangers. That’s why, higher heat transfer and less pressure drop are always targeted. Plate heat exchanger shape is also very important industrial applications that are affected by pressure drop as in condenser, evaporator, and cooling/heating coils in HVAC industry.
