Typical product applications

  • Chemical 
  • Petrochemical 
  • Marine
  • Metalluargy
  • Oil and Gas
  • Power

Powerfull Feature:

  • Flexible desgins options for a perfect fil – always
  • Convenience and versatility
  • Plate desgins high performance with less steel, lower weight and lower costs
  • EnergySaver – best heat transfer value for money with less cooling or heating medium
  • DuraFlow – best choice for applications with limited thermal demand. Typically for medium – or high-viscosity media or for low-viscosity medial with large temperature difference. Wider gap and reduced number of contact points to ease flow of viscous products.
  • ParaWeld – best choice for aggressive media and elevated pressure. Welded plate pairs design for single and two-phase heat transfer in refigeration, petrochemical, chemical and other industrial sectors. Welded  channels allow handling of aggressive fluids. 

 

 

Gasketed type

Gasket heat exchangers are the world's largest plate heat exchangers. These are used for applications with temperatures below 200 degrees and pressures up to 25 bar. This covers most of the heat exchanger market.

Cooling application

Sealed water steam turbine

  • Turbine lubricant
  • Premium water used in stator cooling channels
  • Cover seal oil
  • Transformer oil
  • Fuel consumption element pond water
  • Neutron shielding
  • Energy standby
  • Use closed circuit cooling of sea, river or cooling tower
  • Pressure vessel cooling

Semi welding type

The semi-welded type is a laser welded plate pair for refrigerant and chemical treatment. These pairs are particularly suitable for the evaporation and condensation of refrigerants such as ammonia, as well as the chemical and general processing tasks of aggressive liquids involving aggressive conventional gaskets.

Features and advantages

  • Maximum temperature: up to 392°F / 200°C
  • Minimum temperature: down to -36.4 °F / -38 °C
  • Maximum design pressure: 435 PSIG / 30 bar
  • High thermal efficiency
  • Strong mechanical structure
  • Allow processing of aggressive media
  • Increase security vulnerabilities
  • Flexibility to expand or shrink
  • Small footprint and low grade
  • Patented three flash system
 

All welded 

A fully welded plate heat exchanger ensures that different media are safely separated, even when higher pressures and temperatures are applied. This means that the range of possible applications is wider than the range in which gasketed plate heat exchangers can be applied.

Its compact design allows for a heated surface density of 250 m2/m3. The special structure of the flow mode ensures that the heat transfer of gases and liquids is greatly enhanced.

Features and advantages:

  • Operating temperature range from -328°F to 1652°F (-200°C and 900°C)
  • Vacuum pressure range is 871 psig / 60 bar
  • All welded structure (without gasket)
  • Wide construction structure
  • Compact design allows up to 6000 m3 heating surface per unit
  • Economical use of materials, light weight
  • Exchange surface with a thickness between 0.5 and 1.0 mm
  • Can be used in various high-grade alloys
  • Very efficient heat transfer even at low pressure drops
  • Self-cleaning effect through strong turbulence, no dead ends in flow
  • As a gas or liquid exchanger, condenser or evaporator
  • Low filling fee and short residence time protection products
  • May achieve very accurate temperature methods
