If you are considering buying a plate heat exchanger
, you may be wondering what type you should choose. These exchangers can be found in both copper and nickel models. The copper variety is capable of temperatures up to 425F and a pressure of up to 450 PSI. In case of higher pressures, a nickel-brazed design is also available. Here are some of the key features of these units.
SIGMABRAZE HYDAC HEX S
SIGMABRAZE HYDAC hex S nickel brazed plate heat exchangers are compact, robust, and a cost-effective solution for heat transfer. These heat exchangers are made from 316 stainless steel and copper brazing materials, providing exceptional corrosion resistance while being comparatively small in size. HYDAC hex s nickel brazed plate heat exchanger FHC090 has high wall friction that minimizes surface deposits.
One of the most efficient ways to transfer heat is to use brazed plate heat exchangers. These devices use a stack of stamped heat transfer plates, which are vacuum brazed with either copper or nickel. A special stamp pattern creates turbulent flow that is essential for optimum heat transfer. The high level of wall friction minimizes surface deposits and also acts as a self-cleaning effect.
Copper brazed units are compatible with water, Ethylene Glycol-based Water Solution, and other common coolants. These units are capable of operating at temperatures up to 195 degC and pressures up to 31 bar. Nickel-brazed units are suited for higher temperatures and pressures, and are available in a nickel-brazed design. For superior corrosion-resistance, nickel-brazed units are available.
The compact design and high efficiency of brazed plate heat exchangers have made them a popular choice for many applications. They are also durable, leak-proof, and compact. They can be as small as 50% to 80% of the size of a conventional shell-and-tube unit. And, they can be used in harsh environments. These advantages make them a smart choice for many applications, and help you save money on energy bills.
HYDAC HEX S
The HYDAC HEX S Nickel Brased Plate Heat Exchanger is certified to comply with the WaterMark certification scheme. The scheme, administered by the Australian Building Codes Board on behalf of the Federal Government, accredits certain plumbing and drainage products as fit for purpose. This heat exchanger is suitable for use in indirect heating and cooling systems. For more information about this product, please read its specifications.
The compact and efficient HYDAC HEX S Nickel Brazeld Plate Heat Exchanger is available in two different types: the copper and stainless steel versions. These heat exchangers feature embossed heat transfer plates with gaskets made from nitrile rubber, EPDM, or Viton. This makes these units an excellent supplement to the brazed version. The nickel-brazed version is available in pressures up to 10 bar. Special models are available for higher pressures.
The plate pack is installed in a frame, with a pressure plate and fixed plate, and fastened with bolts or flanges. There are different plate packs for different applications, as well as different number of plates. The inlet and outlet connections are threaded or flanged. Special models are also available with higher grades of materials and higher temperature ratings. The following check-list will assist in the selection of a plate heat exchanger.
