FUNCTION

Provides a safe, sanitary and efficient method of transferring heat from one fluid medium or product to another as the two streams pass on opposing sides of the intervening plates.

 

FEATURES

  • Heavy-duty stainless steel or specially coated carbon steel frame

 

  • Gasketed supported plate designs available in either type 304 or 316 stainless steel

 

  • Molded, single piece and easily replaced gaskets available in standard Buna-s or EPDM material

 

  • Standard 6 bolt type closure with optional mechanical spindle or hydraulic assist closures available

 

  • Differential operating pressures to 150 PSIG

 

  • Custom engineered design configurations to process single, dual or multiple fluids and/or duties simultaneously

 

BENEFITS

Controlled turbulence created by an exclusive method of accelerating and decelerating the flow over each gasket supported plate assures the highest rate of heat transfer even at relatively low pressure drop and velocity in every Chester-Jensen Plate and Frame Heat Exchanger. The unique gasket design prevents intermingling of opposing streams by directing any leaking fluid to the outside of the unit. The modular overall design facilitates restreaming of heat exchanger to accommodate expanding or changing loads.

 

All units easily opened for thorough internal inspection, and all plate surfaces can be cleaned and sanitized safely and effectively by properly designed in-place recirculation systems.

 

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

Use in all types of fluid heat transfer applications for a wide variety of industries including dairy, bakery, beverage, brewery, chemical, pharmaceutical, food processing, and HVAC.
