Plate Heat Exchanger



Plate Fin Heat Exchangers offers space and cost advantages over other types of heat exchangers. They consist of alternating layers of fins separated by parting sheets. The edges of each layer are sealed with side bars which gives the unit mechanical strength and prevents fluid from leaking into the atmosphere. The Plate Fin Heat Exchanger construction is easily customizable to meet a broad range of heat transfer and system requirements. Not only is the fin geometry flexible but can utilize varying folded fin types to balance heat transfer, flow rate, and pressure drop. The aluminium alloys used in the fabrication of brazed Plate Fin Heat Exchangers provide the best possible heat transfer performance, thus enabling low temperature differences. This drastically reduces equipment weight and the size of the exchanger.
