Due to their large thermal surfaces Plate Heat Exchangers are one of the most effective heat exchangers - Gasketed, Brazed, Semi Welded and Fully Welded, all available from Fluid Dynamics.
Plate heat exchangers incorporate highly effective, close fitting, corrugated metal plates to transfer heat between two fluids. This system of heat exchange provides a significant advantage over other heat exchangers as the fluids are exposed to a much greater surface area with the fluids spread out and turbulated over thin thermally efficient plates.
Plate Heat Exchangers are extremely effective due to their large thermal surfaces.
Plate heat exchangers are generally available in two broad types – Gasketed and Brazed:
Gasketed Plate Heat Exchangers (GPHE)use gaskets between individual plates hung from a frame and held tightly together by bolts between two solid end plates. The plates in these units can be dismantled, cleaned, or replaced as needed.
Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers (BPHE) incorporate plates permanently brazed together under heat and pressure. BPHEs are not able to be dismantled however they are extremely effective and better priced than their gasketed cousins.
As well as our own FluidEX® brand of both gasketed and brazed plate heat exchangers Fluid Dynamics also offers most major OEM brands of Gasketed and Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers:
priced very competitively
backed by our Fluid Dynamics' guarantee of quality
selected and sized by our expert heat exchange engineers and
supported by our well-equipped Australian factory.
The plate heat exchanger process facilitates the thermal transfer of heat and greatly decreases the time taken to exchange the temperatures in the fluids.
Fluid Dynamics' fail-safe units are available in both brazed double plate and semi welded gasketed versions. These heat exchangers provide a gap between pairs of plates which, in the event of a leak in one plate, allows the leaking fluid to escape to atmosphere without contaminating the other fluid.
As well as our own FluidEX® brand of both gasketed and brazed plate heat exchangers, we also offer major all popular OEM brands at very competitive prices, all backed by our Fluid Dynamics' guarantee of quality, selected by our expert heat exchange engineers and supported by our well-equipped Australian factory.
Fluid Dynamics' valued partnerships with selected international OEMs and its own expert know-how and design capability allows us to offer a wide range of solutions including design, complete systems and spare parts for most makes, models and duties.
