Our brazed plate heat exchangers (PHE) consist of embossed stainless steel plates that fit into one another and are vacuum brazed with copper or nickel to form a compact pressure-proof unit. During assembly, every second plate is staggered by an angle of 180° creating specific gaps for product flow.
The design and construction of brazed plate heat exchangers enable to create a highly turbulent flow for the most effective heat transfer, even in case of low volumetric flow rates and reduces the risk of fouling to a minimum.
These brazed plate heat exchangers can perform in the range of 2.0 to 6000 kW.
For plates, the material is stainless steel 1.4401 / 316
Solder is with copper or nickel as per process requirement and best material compatibility.
Brazed PHEs are most suitable for oil/ water, water/ water, gas/ liquid (condensation), or such specific media as per process and design.
The maximum operating pressure for efficient performance is up to 30 bar; the Operating temperature is between -160°C to a maximum of +200°C.
The powerful unit for top heat transfer rates in case of media with average viscosity and high viscosity. Design the TPL unit has special turbulators placed between the flow of gaps and by diagonal media flow together with large diameter connections very high heat exchangers rates are reached.
Heat transfer plates with V-corrugation for universal application in case of media with low velocity. GPL series has thermally optimized plate corrugation which produces highly turbulent flow even in case of low mass flow. GPLS series with double plates as the safety heat exchanger types is also available
