Plate Heat Exchanger FAQs

How to clean plate type heat exchanger?2022-07-15T17:11:48+05:30

Necessary maintenance intervals of plate type heat exchanger depending upon diversity of media used. Soft deposits on plates may be removed with circulating hot fresh water and a soft brush directly when the plate type heat exchanger is opened. To remove more stubborn deposits a high pressure clear can also be used. Care should be taken to ensure the surface of SS plates are not be damaged by cleaning. Therefore, abrasive cleaning or polishing agents and metal brushes etc should not be used.

How to size a brazed plate heat exchanger?2022-07-15T17:25:41+05:30

Size and type will depend on what product is going to be processed, its temperature/ pressure/ flow parameters, and capacity of the process plant. It will also depend on how much space is available in the plant. It will also depend on the chemical properties of the product/ fluids, design is checked on certified software and suitable type & size of plate is finalized. After finalization of plates suitable plate heat exchanger is offered. plate heat exchangers can be offered with a heat transfer area of upto 2400 m2. A wide range of variant models with optimal thermodynamic designs suited for different industries and a spectrum of applications.

What is a plate heat exchanger used for?2022-07-15T17:35:06+05:30

PHE’s are used across process industries for various applications designed with compatible materials. They find use in chemical, pharmaceutical, mechanical engineering, on and offshore sector, power, shipbuilding, oil, compressors, piston and turbomachines, steel, surface treatment, automotive, paper and pulp, HVAC, extraction plants, PHE is used for heating and cooling of water, various type of oils, suspensions, infusion solutions, chemicals, acids etc. In food and milk processing sector, a range of heating, cooling, pasteurization, heat recovery to milk and juices. In key processes in these sectors, PHEs are used for heating, cooling, chilling, pasteurization, sterilization, condensation, heating engineering (solar heating central heating, underfloor heating) and also as vaporizer/condenser in the refrigeration plant.

What is brazed plate heat exchanger?2022-07-15T17:37:02+05:30

Our brazed plate heat exchangers (PHE) consists of embossed stainless steel plates fit into one another and 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 PHE enable to create a highly turbulent flow for most effective heat transfer, even in case of low volumetric flow rates and reduces the risk of fouling to a minimum.

What are the maximum and minimum capacities for gaskated plate heat exchanger?2022-07-15T17:40:37+05:30

It is a customized product and completely depending up on the thermal process requirement of the customer. Minimum it can be manufactured from 0.3m2 to maximum 2400 m2.

Will gasket failure cause cross media contamination?2022-07-15T17:42:47+05:30

No. Our PHEs are well engineered to take care and avoid cross-media contamination. All gaskets are installed twice in the entry and exit area, creating a safety room which is open to the outside. It prevents the two media from mixing, avoids gasket leakage and hence leakages in PHE can be avoided.

What gasket material should we use?2022-07-15T17:46:53+05:30

Gasket material depends upon what type of fluid is being used and its temperature in the Plate Heat Exchanger. Depending on the design and the type, an adhesive or non-adhesive (clip-system) gasket may be used. As sealing material, we use well-known and tried and tested materials such as:

    • NBR (nitrile-butadiene rubber): Universal use for aqueous and unctuous media e.g. water/ oil applications
    • EPDM (ethylene-propylene rubber): Wide range of applications for many chemical compounds which do not contain mineral oil and grease, and for water-and steam application
    • Flororubber (viton) : Extremely resistant to chemicals and organic solvents as well as sulphuric acid and vegetable oil at high temperatures
What is the gasket lifeline?2022-10-27T11:00:18+05:30

Gaskets have lasted for a longer time in a clean condition of the plate heat exchanger.

How do we replace a gasket for Plate heat exchanger?2022-07-18T14:35:07+05:30

All the plate heat exchanger models have clip-on gasketes or Glueless gaskets hence they are very easy to replace.

How do I know which type of gasket we have in my heat exchanger?2022-07-18T14:33:05+05:30

It can be easily identified as the gasket type mentioned on the respective plate heat exchanger model.

What is the timeline we get genuine spares replaced?2022-07-18T14:30:45+05:30

Generally, genuine spears are available in stock hence they can be made available.

Does provide spares and service of any plate heat exchanger?2022-10-27T10:57:24+05:30

Yes, provide spares for any plate heat exchangers as well as service for replacing and spares with additional costs as applicable.
