Plate heat exchangerLevylämmönsiirrin on laite, jossa lämpöä siirretään kahden eri väliaineen välillä. Lämmönsiirtimessä on levypakka, jossa väliaineet kulkevat levyjen eri puolilla.
Plate heat exchangers are devices where heat is transferred between two different media. There is a plate pack in a heat exchanger in which the media travel across different sides of the plates.
Welded plate heat exchangers are small by their physical dimensions as compared to tube heat exchangers of the same heat exchange capacity. The installation space required for a plate heat exchanger is only 20-25% of a tube heat exchanger’s installation space. Efficiency is high. A wWelded structure is mechanically durable and also well suitable for cryogenic conditions.
