Although the gaskets in a plate & frame heat exchanger were designed to withstand extreme temperatures, pressures and rough conditions, certain fluids can attack the components and cause them to wear out and eventually tear.
When it comes to replacing gasket plates, factors such as the quality of the materials, accuracy and reliability play a crucial role for the optimum performance of heat transfer applications.
Dedicated providing a competitive and complete service at Mahan’s Thermal Products you can find a supply of gaskets from the world’s largest manufacturers of plate heat exchangers, such as Alfa Laval, API Heat Transfer, or R.W. Holland.
Key factors in choosing gasket plates
Simply replacing the gaskets may not be sufficient if the material doesn’t have sufficient strength to resist system temperatures or fluids. The working environment, the system’s temperature and pressures, as well as the actual nature of the duty are important factors, which help engineers determine the final choice of the gaskets or plate replacement.
- Work environment
In order to ensure full compatibility between the gaskets and the nature of the duty, the location of the plate heat exchanger must be taken into consideration.
- Temperature and pressure
Temperatures and pressures play an essential role in the performance and life expectancy of gaskets. A complete understanding of the temperatures and pressures involved in the heart transfer process will help you determine the right gasket replacement for your application.
- Type of material
Material compatibility is another major factor that can influence the final decision. Understanding the type of reaction that takes place between the gasket material and the heat exchanger material is paramount for the reliability and efficiency of the gasket.
- Easy maintenance
It is important for the gasket plates to be easily removable for cleaning, maintenance or replacement.
