The embossed pattern of the heat transfer plates promotes high turbulence at low fluid velocities. The high turbulence results in very high heat transfer coefficients.
The brazed heat exchanger can be anywhere from 50% to 80% smaller than other types of heat exchangers. It requires less floor space due to the high thermal efficiency of the stainless steel. The plates are brazed together at high temperatures, allowing the heat exchanger to be compact, leak tight, and rugged.
Close Approach Temperatures
Close-approach temperatures of 1-2°F (0.5-1.0°C) are possible because of true counter flow and high heat transfer efficiency of the plates. This is an important factor in regeneration and heat recovery processes.
High Temperature and Pressure Ratings
Maximum working pressures from 300 psi to 650 psi, and temperature ratings of 350°F.
