How it works. The heat transfer area of a gasketed plate heat exchanger consists of a series of corrugated plates, assembled between a frame and pressure plates to retain pressure. Gaskets act as seals between the plates. Fluids normally run counter-currently through the heat exchanger.
Our extensive range of Gasketed Plate Heat Exchangers provide compact thermally efficient solutions to your heat transfer requirements. The main advantage of a gasketed plate heat exchanger is that it is possible to open up the inside components for cleaning and maintenance purposes. It also allows extra plates to be added should your process conditions change. Steam Consumption of Heat Exchangers Spirax SarcoIn a gasketed plate heat exchanger the plates are clamped together in a frame, and a thin gasket (usually a synthetic polymer) seals each plate around the edge. Tightening bolts fitted between the plates are used to compress the plate pack between the frame plate and the pressure plate.
Alfa Laval's TS6 gaskets plate-and-frame heat exchanger is designed to heat water or CIP solutions by means of steam. It also performs general heating and cooling duties. Working Principle. Channels are formed between the plates and the corner ports are arranged so
