Plate Heat Exchanger
The Plate Heat Exchanger has a single
heating section configured for multi-pass operation with passes in
series. It comprises seven individual plates, which are clamped together
using two stainless steel threaded bars and nuts. It is possible to
dismantle and reassemble the heat exchanger using only three plates to
demonstrate a single pass.
The plates used in these heat exchangers
have been specifically developed by for use in miniature heat exchanger
systems. They are fabricated from 316 stainless steel, with a pressed
chevron pattern to promote turbulence and provide multiple support
points. Silicone rubber gaskets are used on each plate to seal the
adjacent flow channels from each other.
- Plate overall dimensions: 75mm x 115mm.
- Effective diameter: 3.0mm.
- Plate thickness: 0.5mm.
- Wetted perimeter: 153.0mm.
- Projected heat transmission area:0.008m2 per plate.
