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 (180 oC). 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.
