Operating principle

Brazed plate heat exchangers have a simple operating principle. Based on the plate and nozzle orientation, each fluid passes through alternative channels within the heat exchanger. An extremely high heat transfer coefficient is attained due to the flow characteristics in each channel. A specially designed and tested Chevron pattern causes a turbulent flow of the fluid resulting in higher heat transfer and reduction of the amount of deposits inside the unit. The plates in this exchanger are configured 180 degrees to each other, causing plate ridges to intersect and creates a lattice of intersecting channels. The fluids can be plumbed in counter or co-current way.
