WideGap 350 is offered with flexible plate spacing combinations and 36 percent higher flow handling capacity than the company's previous wide-gap plate heat exchanger design. The exchanger also can be designed with a wide-gap/normal-gap configuration or a double-sided wide-gap configuration for applications with two media containing solids. The elastomer composition and gasket design have increased design temperatures to 356oF (180oC). Designed for cooling fluids that would clog standard-gap exchangers, it is suited for duties such as mash and fermenter cooling in grain-based fuel ethanol plants.
