Plate Heat Exchangers
Tranter offers one of the world’s largest ranges of plate styles with optimum
flow configurations. With this design flexibility, Tranter can accommodate
individual process conditions better than any other brand of heat exchangers.
When you furnish your application conditions, our applications engineers balance
all constraints within our variety of tested designs. You will receive a timely
quote for an optimally efficient exchanger, backed by a thermal performance
guarantee and our life-cycle Multi-Brand™ service.
Styles include wide-gap plates for viscous fluids or slurries and herringbone
pattern plates for regular industrial fluids suitable for high heat transfer
rates at low pressure drops.
Our unique mixed Ultraflex high-and low-NTU pattern plates result in an
exchanger with maximum efficiency and with the lowest possible heat transfer
area, because the thermal and the hydraulic requirements can be optimized for
best utilization of available pressure drops.
Tranter double-wall plates provide double security against intermixing, even
in the event of plate rupture. Each plate consists of two identical plates
welded together around the four portholes so that any leaks through the plates
flow to the exterior to the inter-plate space instead of contaminating the other
Plate Materials And Gaskets
Plates can be produced in virtually any metal that can be cold-formed,
including: stainless steels (304, 316, 317, etc.); titanium; Monel®; nickel;
alloys 825, 20Cb-3, B-2 and C-276; and a variety of other materials. Plates are
available in sizes ranging from 0.06 m2 (0.64 ft2) to 4.41 m2 (47.5 ft2) and in
thicknesses from 0.4 mm (0.016 in.) to 1.0 mm (0.039 in.).
Quality compounded gasket materials include NBR, EPDM, Viton, Neoprene,
Butyl, Hypalon, Teflon-encapsulated NBR and others, specified to match your
process conditions, to maximum operating temperatures of 180°C (356°F).
Most units are designed for a one pass/one pass flow arrangement resulting in
all nozzles being installed on the stationary end frame; however, inserting one
or more special turning plates within the plate pack makes possible multi-pass
or multi-duty units.
Frames And Connections
Tranter offers solid end frames that can be ASME Code stamped up to a design
pressure of 27.56 barg (400 psig). Tranter offers ASA loose flange type nozzles
as standard on reinforced end frames and studded port connections as standard on
solid end frames. In addition, threaded pipe, sanitary and Victaulic connections
A wide variety of plate styles enables precise
accommodation of duty conditions.
