Equal M10 Gasket Sanitary Plate Heat Exchanger
The plate heat exchanger consists of a pack of corrugated metal plates with portholes for the passage of two fluids between which heat transfer will take place. The plate pack is assembled between a frame plate and a pressure plate and compressed by tightening bolts. The plates are fitted with a gasket which seals the channel and directs the fluids into alternate channels. The number of plates are determined by the flow rate, physical properties of the fluids, pressure drop and temperature program. The plate corrugations promote fluid turbulence and support the plates against differential pressure.
The plates and the pressure plate are located by an upper bar and a lower bar, both of which are fixed to the support column. On the largest type some tightening bolts are equipped with ball bearing washers in order to facilitate opening and closing of the unit. The frame is designed for mounting on a floor only. Standard feet are fixed. One unit can contain several sections, separated by connection plates with interchangeable connections.
The corrugation of the plates provides a passage between the plates, supports each plate against the adjacent one and enhances the turbulence, resulting in efficient heat transfer. Corner ports and gaskets are arranged so that the two media flow through alternate channels. The plates have a chevron pattern for maximum strength at high working pressures. Different chevron designs are available, in order to obtain optimal high heat transfer and low pressure drop. A unique distribution area provides an even flow over the plate surface. The plates are reversible and have parallel flow, which means only one type of plate is needed.
The BAODE gasketed plate heat exchangers provides gentle, yet efficient, heating and cooling and meets all sanitary requirements. Typical applications include dairy, food and beverage, and other sanitary processes such as:
Milk and beverage processing
Bottled water treatment
CIP (Cleaning-in-Place) heating
Reverse osmosis water
Cooling and heating of dairy, brewery, beverage and viscous products and milk pasteurization and pasteurization in some applications
