The plate heat exchanger consists of a pack of corrugated metal
plates with portholes for the passage of two fluids between which
heat transfer will take place. The plate pack is assembled between
a frame plate and a pressure plate and compressed by tightening
bolts. The plates are fitted with a gasket which seals the channel
and directs the fluids into alternate channels. The number of
plates are determined by the flow rate, physical properties of the
fluids, pressure drop and temperature program. The plate
corrugations promote fluid turbulence and support the plates
against differential pressure.
The plates and the pressure plate are located by an upper bar and a
lower bar, both of which are fixed to the support column. On the
largest type some tightening bolts are equipped with ball bearing
washers in order to facilitate opening and closing of the unit. The
frame is designed for mounting on a floor only. Standard feet are
fixed. One unit can contain several sections, separated by
connection plates with interchangeable connections.
The corrugation of the plates provides a passage between the
plates, supports each plate against the adjacent one and enhances
the turbulence, resulting in efficient heat transfer. Corner ports
and gaskets are arranged so that the two media flow through
alternate channels. The plates have a chevron pattern for maximum
strength at high working pressures. Different chevron designs are
available, in order to obtain optimal high heat transfer and low
pressure drop. A unique distribution area provides an even flow
over the plate surface. The plates are reversible and have parallel
flow, which means only one type of plate is needed.
The BAODE gasketed plate heat exchangers provides gentle, yet
efficient, heating and cooling and meets all sanitary requirements.
Typical applications include dairy, food and beverage, and other
sanitary processes such as:
• Milk and beverage processing
• Wine tempering
• Bottled water treatment
• CIP (Cleaning-in-Place) heating
• Reverse osmosis water
Easy to modify
Modular design makes these standard plate heat exchangers easy to
adapt to new or changing process requirements. Different plate
types, plate materials, plate lengths, gasket materials and options
make it adaptable choice for a wide range of hygienic processes.
You can, for instance, choose BAODE’s B plate type for application
that require the highest possible thermal efficiency. Or opt for
our M plate type for applications that require gentler product
treatment. Special sanitary-quality gaskets made of NBRFF and EPDFF
are also available for hygienic processes.
High thermal efficiency
BAODE heat exchangers provide highly efficient heat transfer thanks
to our unique thin plates with optimized chevron pattern, pressing
depths and plate material. This provides more efficient and uniform
heat transfer as well as uniform distribution of product across the
entire surface of the plate. BAODE plates are available in a wide
range of designs and sizes.
Easy cleaning and easy to service
BAODE plate heat exchangers come with features that make cleaning
and service easy. Small ports, for example, make Cleaning-In-Place
(CIP) possible without requiring the use of specialized pumps.
Another great feature is our unique glue-less gasket system using
FDA-compliant materials. Gaskets can easily be replaced while
plates still hang on the frame, which saves both time and money.
