OUR PRODUCTS - Brazed Plate Heat ExchangerKaori's brazed type heat exchanger consists of a series of thin and corrugated stainless steel plates. These plates are compressed and brazed together with copper or nickel depending on the application. This creates flowing channels between plates, with one fluid in odd number channels and the other in the even number channels, thus reaching the purpose of heat exchanging.
Different from the gasket seal type, brazing type uses soldering material (copper or nickel depending on the application) to seal the exchanger. By applying high temperatures in the vacuum environment at the manufacturing process, it melts down the soldering material to form the seal between each of the plates.
ADVANTAGES ON THE BRAZED PLATE HEAT EXCHANGER
- High corrosion resistant
All plates uses SUS316 material. Brazing materials come in copper or nickel versions. These materials offer high corrosion resistance against a variety of fluids.
- High pressure resistant
Thanks to the brazing process, plate heat exchangers are pressure resistant up to 45 bar.*
- High thermal efficiency
Carefully designed plate pattern of the corrugated plates easily achieves high thermal transfer rate in either counter flow or parallel flow arrangement.
- High working temperature
Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger's SUS316 material structure offers higher working temperature range up to 200℃.
Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger is much lighter in weight and smaller in size, if compared to shell tube exchangers; about 1/5 the size of the shell tube exchanger of the same capacity. This advantage makes Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger easier to install and replace.
- Low maintenance
The corrugated plates are designed to achieve turbulence flow at a low flow rate, thus decreasing the need for frequent maintenance.
