A plate heat exchanger is a unit which transfers heat continuously from one media to another media without adding energy to the process.
A plate heat exchanger is constructed by using different types of plates, with different characteristics. The exchangers can be adapted to a wide variety of applications.
The various types of gasketed plate heat exchangers are:
Single Wall Gasketed Plate Heat Exchangers; The traditional plate and frame heat exchanger
Double Wall Plate Heat Exchangers; Used to prevent cross contamination of the fluids.
Semi-Welded Plate Pair Plate Heat Exchangers; No gaskets on one plate channel, gasket on the other side for the ultimate in flexibility and safety
