Gasket plate heat exchanger
Gasket plate heat exchangers are widely used in the industry for their high efficiency, low investment level and totally versatile to process changes.
The plates are made of cold-pressed sheet metal with corrugations designed to achieve maximum heat transfer. Each plate is provided with a synthetic rubber gasket which seals the fluid in. The plate is hung on the upper guide bar and is tightened between the stand (fixed frame) and the end plate (movable frame).
The fluid flows through a narrow space between the plates and heat is exchanged across the plate surfaces.
In the plate heat exchanger, the fluids can travel in various directions of flow, such as looped, in series of plates.
