How does a plate heat exchanger works?

- May 24, 2018-

With the development of modern industrial processes, heating, shipbuilding, electricity, metallurgy, chemical, textile, and other sectors, the use of plate heat exchanger can be used for heating, cooling, evaporation, sterilization, waste heat recovery and other conditions.


Do you know the installation method of plate heat exchanger? Here's a summary of the specific introduction。


1. First install the plate heat exchanger around the location to set aside a certain test site.


2. Before the installation, the pipeline connected to it should be cleaned to prevent sand, oil, welding slag and other impurities from entering the plate heat exchanger, causing obstruction or damage to the flow channel.

The plate heat exchanger itself has a small footprint and light weight. In addition to the volume of the device itself, no additional inspection and installation space is required. The thickness of the plate used for heat exchange is only 0.6-0.8 mm.


3. Pay attention to the order of opening and stopping of plate heat exchanger.When starting up, open the low pressure side medium valve first, and then slowly open the high pressure side medium valve after the medium is filled with plate heat exchanger channel.

When stopping, close the high pressure side media valve and then close the low pressure side medium valve.


4. Check whether all clamps are loose before use, and tighten them if necessary.
