Plate Heat Exchangers

Plate Heat Exchangers

There really is no longer any need for engineers to wait days to receive a quotation for Heat Exchangers whether it is for budget purposes or for an urgent replacement unit.

Most Heat Exchanger designs for Central Heating, Domestic Hot Water and Swimming Pools tend to be the same or very similar 90% of the time so with this in mind AEL have provided all the cost prices and technical information required for each application from 30KW up to 1000KW as a standard design so that they can be viewed and purchased online. AEL have also provided a facility to enquire about bespoke designs or ask any technical questions specific to your installation.

Plate Heat Exchangers have been used to heat and cool many types of fluids in the UK for over 80 years and they all operate the same way in principle whether assembled as a Plate and Gasket unit, Brazed or supplied as a Shell and Tube unit. In practice all three types of heat exchanger transfers energy from a hot or cold fluid and ensures that they do not mix by creating two completely independent separate heating or cooling circuits.

Plate Heat exchangers

Gasketed Plate Heat Exchangers are built with high quality usually EPDM or Nitrile gaskets which are designed to seal a bank of stainless steel plates together. Plates can easily be removed for cleaning, more plates added to increase output or the plate pack can be quickly replaced with a new bank of plates within the existing frame reducing high maintenance costs.

Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers are commonly used in low demand heating and DHW systems or industrial and refrigeration applications. The stainless steel (or Nickel) plate and copper brazing construction means that they resistant to corrosion and a sealed unit so it is not possible to expand capacity but they can be cleaned by flushing through with a cleaning agent as part of a maintenance programme and can be easily replaced if a union or flanged connection are fitted to each of the four ports.

Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers are designed for use with high volume / low pressure loss systems such as swimming pools because they are resistant to Fluorine and Chlorine used in the swimming pool water internally as well as externally in a corrosive atmosphere. The shell and tube heat exchangers are a sealed unit so it is not possible to expand capacity but they can be cleaned by flushing through with a cleaning agent as part of a maintenance programme and can be easily replaced if union or flanged connection are fitted to each of the four ports.
