Plate and Frame Heat Exchangers

Figures 15-8, A, B and C illustrate the general arrangements of most manufacturers, although several variations of plate flow pattern designs are available to accomplish specific heat transfer fluids’ temperature exchanges. Also, the gasket sealing varies, and some styles are seal welded (usually laser) to prevent cross-contamination. Note that a Plate Heat Exchanger (PHE) has no interplate gaskets and is totally accessible on both sides, yet easy to clean.
