PLATE TYPE HEAT EXCHANGER

APV is the manufacturer of Plate Type Heat Exchanger. The very first time they discovered the late Type Heat Exchanger was in 1923. From that period onwards the plate type heat exchanger came in the world and thus was later on made by other companies as well.

Compact brazed plate heat exchangers

Field of application A comprehensive range of compact brazed plate heat exchangers for HVAC applications. Especially suited for water heaters, district heating units, gas boilers, and solar heating

Description Plate heat exchanger without gaskets. The plates are joined by copper soldering

  • Material AISI 316L (and copper)
  • Temperature -50 – 195°C (-58 – 383 °F)
  • Pressure 0 – 30 bar gauge (0 – 435 Psi)
  • Transmission area/duty Up to 75 m² (0 – 807 ft²)
  • Maintenance access Cleaning by circulation of cleaning fluids (CIP)

Gasketed Brazed

Plate heat exchangers with loose, gasketed plates
compressed in a frame. Designed for superior heat transfer coefficients, compact installation, and highest possible efficiency and optimum run-time. ParaFlow heat exchangers are available in various plate designs, plate types, corrugation patterns and
sizes to match customer requirements

Material Plates: AISI 316, AISI 304, Titanium, and most alloys
Gaskets: NBR per, EPDM, FKM, and others
Frames: Stainless steel or painted Carbon steel
Temperature Rubber gaskets: -35 – 180°C (-31 – 356°F)
Graphite gaskets: -20 – 250°C (-4 – 482°F)Pressure 0 – 25 bar gauge (0 – 362 Psi)
Transmission area/duty Up to 3,800 m² (40,903 ft²)
Maintenance access Full access for cleaning and inspection

Fully welded

Field of application For heating, cooling, condensing and evaporating. Typically used for high temperature and high-pressure duties, e.g. in power, chemical, petrochemical and sugar industries

Description A fully-welded, gasket-free heat exchanger combining highly efficient plates and strong vessel construction. The asymmetric and flexible design allows extremely low-pressure drop if required. Can be fully customised to meet individual needs

Material Plates: AISI 316L or most alloys
Vessel: AISI 316L or carbon steel
 Temperature -200 – 900°C (-328 – 1,652 °F)

Pressure -1 – 60 bar gauge (-14 – 870 Psi)

Transmission area/duty Up to 8,000 m² per unit (86,111 ft²)

Maintenance access Full accessibility for cleaning and inspection without removal of piping. Further cleaning by the circulation of cleaning fluids (CIP)

Plate & Shell

Field of application For duties at high temperatures or pressures, frequently applied as an evaporator, condenser or heat exchanger for media where gaskets should be avoided. Strong construction excellent for steam duties
Description A fully-welded, gasket-free heat exchanger combining highly efficient plates and a strong cylindric vessel construction

Material Plates: AISI 316L, or most alloys
Vessel: AISI 316L or carbon steel
Temperature -30 – 300°C (-22 – 572°F)
Pressure 0 – 40 bar gauge (0 – 580 Psi)
Transmission area/duty Up to 14 m² (150 ft²)
Maintenance access Openable version can be high-pressure cleaned on one side. Further cleaning by the circulation of cleaning fluids (CIP)Advantages

Semi Welded Plates- Para Welded

Field of applicationL: Widely used for single and two-phase heat transfer in refrigeration, chemical, industrial and petrochemical markets. Designed with welded channels allowing handling of aggressive fluids

Description:Corrugated plates welded in pairs. Pairs are separated by gaskets (welded pairs on process side, normal gasket technology on the secondary side)

Material Plates: AISI 316, AISI 304, Titanium, C2000, and
most alloys
