Plate & frame heat exchangers work by passing fluids through alternating fluid cavities that are separated by corrugated stainless steal plates. The fluids are alternated so that hot fluid is surrounded by cool fluid throughout the entire exchanger. The corrugation provides high turbulence even at low flow rates, which lends itself to this style of heat exchanger's over all high thermal efficiency.
These heat exchangers are effective in situations when other types of exchangers are not, such as applications with low flow rates or when there is a low temperature differential between fluids. They also allow for disassembly when required for cleaning (e.g. in the food industry), sizing flexibility when process changes are expected in the future or when compact design is necessary.
These high efficiency plate & frame heat exchangers have the flexibility for any application and we at Dry Coolers have the expertise to help you customize them as well as help you with any of your custom pumping station needs.
