Plate Type Heat Exchanger
In Heat Exchanger system, the new and most recent type of compact and effective model Heat Exchanger is Plate Type Heat Exchanger. Another type of Heat Exchanger is the Plate Type Heat Exchanger. One is collected of multiple, thin, slightly separated plates that are full of very large surface areas and fluid flow passages for heat transfer. This stacked-plate arrangement can be supplementary effective, in a given space, than the shell and tube heat exchanger. Advances in gasket and brazing technology have made the Plate Type Heat Exchanger increasingly practical. In HVAC applications, large Heat Exchanger of this type are called plate-and-frame; when used in open loops, these Heat Exchanger are normally of the gasket type to allow periodic disassembly, cleaning, and inspection. There are many types of permanently bonded Plate Type Heat Exchanger, such as dip-brazed and vacuum-brazed plate varieties, and they are frequently specified for closed-loop applications such as refrigeration. Plate Type Heat Exchanger also differs in the types of plates that are used, and in the configurations of those plates. The closely spaced metal heat transfer plates have troughs or corrugations, which induce turbulence to the liquids flowing as a thin stream between the plates.
