How does a brazed plate heat exchanger work
The high strength brazed plate heat exchanger (BPHE) is a series of thin mountain ribbed stainless steel plates, brazed by copper or nickel. The welded material melts in a vacuum furnace and seals the plates. This brazing and sealing process makes the plates extremely durable and allows the high strength brazing type plate heat exchanger to operate under high temperature and pressure.
The space between plates forms a flow channel, one fluid flowing into the odd channel and the other into the even channel. The heat exchange is carried out through a large surface on the designed sheet, which enables the brazing type plate heat exchanger to operate very efficiently. Almost all materials are used for heat transfer, which is both efficient and cost-effective.
The plate pattern is designed according to the application efficiency of the customer. Particular attention should be paid to the width and depth of the ridges on each plate. The high flow rate caused by the plate grain can significantly reduce the scale formation of the flow passage and improve the high heat transfer performance. After decades of research and development, goliath has optimized specific applications of sheet forms and continues to look for innovative ways to improve performance while minimizing pressure drops.
The flow pattern of standard brazed plate heat exchanger is single pass; That is to say, the working fluid flows in a single direction. The multichannel mode is available only in working fluids where the flow path can be changed, sometimes at low flow rates or very close to the temperature. At other times, the multi-channel arrangement is also suitable for design structures that are more flexible for major applications.
The design and application of brazed sheet heat exchanger must be considered when purchasing it. Representatives from colliers can help you choose the most suitable heat transfer solution.
