Plate Heat Exchanger Has No Contact Points in Flow Areas
November 1, 2006
“Open Channel” plate heat exchanger is designed to allow the unrestricted passage of coarse particles and fibers that normally cause clogging and downtime. The plate design geometry uses only longitudinal contact strips to eliminate contact points in product flow areas. This design makes it possible to heat and cool pulpy juices, crushed berries, vegetables, salsas, sauces, and slurries in a space-saving efficient plate-style heat exchanger. It is offered in a portable model that can be wheeled throughout the plant, an upright stationary model, or with an automated frame closure for access to plate pack.
