The individual heat exchanger plates are removable and adapt to the most varied applications. Initially, they are used for cooling contamination sensitive products, such as for example: milk, juices, wines, etc. They have been utilized an increasing number of applications.
Easy removal is one of the main advantages of this equipment.
There are continual enhancements in these heat exchangers, as well as introducing other fields of applications, providing feasibility of higher pressure capabilities.
Dual laser-welded plate modules have recently been introduced, thereby leveraging the field of application even more.
According to the needs, a specified number of plates are assembled using gaskets or modular plates and pressed using threaded rods.
A carbon steel (or stainless steel) structure supports the plate assembly and assures the equipment stability even under higher pressures. In order to facilitate maintenance, steel bars are used in the structure to keep the plates in the right position.
The plates are manufactured from AISI 304, AISI 316, titanium, and other types of steel.
The pedestals are manufactured from carbon steel; AIS 304 coated steel, or optionally made from stainless steel.
The guide bars and rear column are made from carbon steel or optionally made from stainless steel.
