Plate Heat Exchanger

Plate heat exchanger is a type of heat exchanger that uses metal plates to transfer heat between two fluids.

A heat exchanger follows the equalisation principle. With a plate heat exchanger, heat cuts through the surface and separates the hot medium from the cold. Thus, heating and cooling fluids and gases use minimal energy levels. The design of a plate heat exchanger (PHE) comprises several heat transfer plates. Held by a fixed plate and a loose pressure plate to form a complete unit. Each heat transfer plate has a gasket arrangement, providing two separate channel systems. The arrangement of the gaskets allows through flow in single channels. This enables the primary and secondary media in a counter-current flow. The mediums are not mixed because of the gasket design. The corrugated plates create turbulence in the fluids as they flow through the unit. This turbulence gives an effective heat transfer coefficient.
