3. Light weight
The thickness of plate heat exchanger is only 0.4-0.8mm, while that of shell and tube heat exchanger is 2.0-2.5mm.The shell of the shell type is much heavier than the frame of the plate type heat exchanger.
4. Small heat loss
Only the shell plate of the heat transfer plate of the plate heat exchanger is exposed to the atmosphere, so the heat loss can be ignored, and no insulation measures are needed.The heat loss of shell and tube heat exchanger is large, so heat insulation layer is needed.
5. Not easy to scale
Due to sufficient internal turbulence, it is not easy to scale.The scaling coefficient is only 1/3~1/10. M of shell and tube heat exchanger.Working pressure should not be too large, medium temperature should not be too high,it can cause the possible leakage.The plate heat exchanger is sealed with gasket,whose working pressure generally should not exceed 2.5mpa and medium temperature should be lower than 250 ℃ below or it might leak.
Plate and frame heat exchanger is widely used in industrial and civil facilities due to its prominent use characteristics, high heat transfer efficiency, small footprint, light weight, not easy to scale, small capacity, etc.When users are choosing the plate and frame heat exchanger,it must be based on their own needs and characteristics of heat exchanger to choose and choose well-known brand products.
