Plate Heat Exchangers


Ideally suited for a broad range of food processing duties where there is a tendency for the product to foul the heated surface or where large temperature-induced viscosity changes are likely to occur. Four frame sizes holding up to a maximum of 500 plates (0.6 mm thick) are available with a port diameter of 2.5” making the Vega frames capable of processing up to 250 U.S. GPM or 60 cu. m/hour of product. Plates are available in a wide thickness range (0.5 to 0.8 mm) making them adaptable to a large range of process design pressures.

High Heat Transfer
  • APV Plate Heat Echangers have film coefficients three to five-times greater
  • Efficient operation with up to 98% heat recovery or regeneration
  • Low liquid hold-up enables faster reaction times to change in process
  • Fluids flow counter-current to each other between the parallel passages in each

Cost Effective
  • APV Plate Heat Exchangers reduce floor space by up to 90%, weighs less and delivers higher performance
  • Lower hold-up volume minimizes the amount of product required for flooding, reduces usage of high cost service fluids and improves thermal reaction times
  • Reduced capital costs and installation expenses
  • High energy recovery reduces energy costs

Flexibility
  • The modular design of APV Heat Exchangers enables expansion of your heat exchanger as process requirements grow
  • Handles multiple duties and fluid streams in a single unit
  • Easily reconfigured to meet changing process needs
  • Wide variety of sizes and style ensuring optimal solutions for your applications
