MAXCHANGER® Mini-Welded Plate Heat Exchanger
Configurations Mini-Welded Plate Heat Exchangers
The 1-mm (0.039-in.) thick dimpled heat exchanger plates are sandwiched between top and bottom plates specified to withstand the design pressure. Special spacers separate the plates, isolating the channels and establishing countercurrent flow. Four corner angles (or half-pipes) are welded to side plates, top and bottom plates and to the heat exchange plate points, forming inlet and outlet headers.
The corner angle or corner half-pipe fitting options enable inlets and outlets to be located on the sides, corners or ends for flexibility in tight spaces. Connections may be NPT or flanged, and mounting brackets or lugs may be specified for secure mounting when configured with line diameters or in the presence of vibration.
The MAXCHANGER is available in two plate lengths, the model MX-12 at 305 mm (12 in.) and the model MX-24 at 610 mm (24 in.). The number of plates used can vary depending upon the thermal duty. Both single- and multiple-pass configurations are available.
ASME Code stamped construction is available. In addition to the standard 316 Stainless Steel or Titanium, optional materials include Hastelloy, Alloy 20, SL6XN, Monel and Inconel.
The MAXCHANGER can be configured from the factory in multi-unit assemblies, piped in series or parallel.
