Heating of water or CIP (cleaning in place) solutions by means of
steam. General heating and cooling duties.
Working Principles
Channels are formed between the plates and the corner ports are
arranged so that the two media flow through alternate channels.
The heat is transferred through the plate between the channels, and
complete counter-current flow is created for highest possible efficiency.
The corrugation of the plates provides the passage between the
plates, supports each plate against the adjacent one and enhances
the turbulence, resulting in efficient heat transfer.
Standard design
The plate heat exchanger consists of a pack of corrugated metal
plates with portholes for the passage of the two fluids between which
heat transfer will take place.
The plate pack is assembled between a fixed frame plate and a
movable pressure plate and compressed by tightening bolts. The
plates are fitted with a gasket which seals the interplate channel and
directs the fluids into alternate channels. The number of plates is
determined by the flow rate, physical properties of the fluids, pressure
drop and temperature program. The plate corrugations promote fluid
turbulence and support the plates against differential pressure.
The plate and the pressure plate are fixed between upper bar and
lower bar, which again is fixed to a support column.
Connections are located in the frame plate or, if either or both fluids
make more than a single pass within the unit, in the frame and
pressure plate.
