PLATE HEAT EXCHANGER External Structure
Flow of Fluid and Heat Exchange Mechanism
The heat transfer plates are thin sheets of corrosion resistant metal such as stainless steel or titanium that are press-formed with a corrugated pattern on the surface and sealed with synthetic rubber gaskets, which seals the flow channel and directs the fluid into alternate channels. Such plates are suspended, supported and aligned by guide bars and tightened by bolts between a fixed and a movable frame. The equipment can adjust the number of plates so as to meet the heat duty.
Heat transfer A and B-plates are of identical pattern. One simply turned upside-down becomes to the other so as to obtain a different flow channel by the gasket line. Further, by the start plate (D-plate) having its portholes with double seal gaskets and the blind last plate (E-plate), the construction is such that the fluids do not directly contact the frames.
Construction Plate Heat Exchanger

FEATURES Heat Transfer Plates
Wide Application Range
Each heat transfer plate is corrugated to various patterns to increase its strength and heat transfer area. Furthermore, the corrugation creates high turbulence and thereby achieve high heat transfer coefficient. The plate is provided with passage hole on each corner. Each plate is tight-sealed with a gasket fitted in its peripheral groove.

Special consideration is taken into the gasket so as to protect it from direct attack by liquid. Furthermore, the gasket is of double-seal type so as to permit liquid draining outside the exchanger even in a case of liquid leak caused by its deterioration.
High Performance The overall heat transfer co-efficient (U-value) ranges from 4,000 to 9,000 W/m2·˚C in water application, since the plate corrugation provides high turbulent flow. This is one of the reasons why plate heat exchanger performs so high heat transfer coefficient. In addition, this turbulent flow also acts to prevent scales from the plate surface.
Flow Channel The plates are divided into A-plate and B-plate, and a passage is formed between these plates. The high temperature fluid flows alternately and in the opposite direction of the other fluid. Thus high efficient transfer of heat is achieved
through these plates. A-plate when reversed would become B-plate. As such only one type of plate can be used as A-plate and B-plate for most models.
Easy Maintenance The plate heat exchanger can be easily opened for inspection and maintenance by loosening the tightening bolts and nuts. Assembly and opening of the unit are also easily performed.

Less Installation Space
The lightweight and compact construction saves the installation space to 1/4 and the weight to 1/3 of shell & tube heat exchanger respectively. In addition, lightweight and thin heating plate with less liquidhold facilitates the installation work. The Plate Heat Exchanger can be disassembled for cleaning without piping work, while the shell & tube heat needs a additional space for drawing out the tube bundle.
Pass Design With single-pass design, all of the connections are made on the fixed frame side only. This simplifies piping work and increases layout flexibility. With a multi-pass design, connec-
tions are located on both the S-Frame (fixed-frame) and EFrame (movable-frame) sides making it necessary to remove and adjust the piping.
Two fluids temperature difference up to its extremely close... The construction which permits heat exchanging in perfect counter-current flow with very high heat transfer efficiency makes it possible to approach the temperature difference between hot and cold fluids up to 1˚C and less.
Single-pass Design 05
It is necessary to remove the connected piping when disassembling the unit.
Multi-pass Design 06
The plates are specially selected from various patterns so as to achieve optimum area and cost effective heat exchanger for eachunit. These plates can be classified into three patterns, namely. 1. Herringbone pattern such as LX-, UX-, RX-, WX-, and SX-series 2. Wash board pattern such as EX-series 3. Special wave pattern such as GX-, and YX-series
1. Versatile gasket HISAKA Plate Heat Exchanger is used in almost all process industries, as such the gaskets are specifically selected based on the operating condition. A wide range of gaskets are available such as NBR, EPDM, IIR, FPM, Silicon, etc. ●Special Hisaka (S-1) glue shall be applied for bonding
1. Herringbone pattern
The herringbone design in LX-series has corrugations with pitch which is rough and deep. In SX-series, the pitch is fine and shallow, hence LX-series are used in application where low NTU is required, and SX-series are best suited for high NTU application. UX/RX-series is in between LX-series and SX-series.
Hot temp in−Hot temp out
NTU : Number of heat Transfer Unit LMTD : Logarithmic Mean Temp. Difference
2. Glue-free gasket slit-in type NTU of 1.5 and less is generally referred to as low NTU, and 3.0 and above is considered as high NTU
UX / RX-series
Even in the same series, the heat transfer characteristic is different due to plate pattern angle. H plate is suited to high NTU, while L plate to low NTU. When the plates corrugated in H plate and L plate can be mixed together in a unit, intermediate thermal characteristics can be achieved.
These plate gaskets do not need adhesive. The slit-in gasket is especially recommended for those applications where frequent replacement of the gasket is required. Further, without the adhesives, adhesive odor is reduced. This slit-in type gasket is suitable for such as water treatment Food application.
3. PTFE Cushion Gasket (TCG) Through our own development, HISAKA has pioneered PTFE Cushion Gaskets for the Plate Heat Exchanger. It is normally used in applications where conventional synthetic rubber would have limitations due to the corrosiveness of the fluid being handled. With this new development, the Plate Heat Exchangers can be applied in much wider field than before due to the chemical resistance and the durability of PTFE. ●Special double adhesive tape shall be applied for bonding
2. Wash board pattern
3. Special pattern
As this type of plate gas less metal contact, it is normally applied to fluids containing fibers, particles or sludge. We have EX-series.
YX plate is used exclusively for vapor condensation. (See Page 14)
1. Excellent chemical resistance against most chemical especially organic solvent. 2. Due to the elastic core of the TCG gasket, it does not require strong tightening torque during the assembly of the unit. Thus reducing the risks of plate deformation due to over tightening. 3. TCG gasket can be used for one side only, if the non-corrosive fluid is running in the other side where conventional gasket can be used.

SEMI WELDED PLATE FEATURES
CONSTRUCTON of SEMI WELDED PLATE
High heat transfer coefficient owing to uniform distribution of flow to entire heat transfer is by special plate pattern. A couple of plates are laser welded with o-ring at port holes between the plates, thus semi-welded plate heat exchanger can be used for higher pressure compare to conventional Plate Heat Exchanger.
YX type heat exchanger is specially designed for condenser to provide high condensing performance in characteristic formed various material plates. This characteristic YX shape is enable to be light and compact construction and it has the heat transfer performance of 2 to 3 times as high as conventional S&T heat exchanger.
SEMI WELDED TYPE HEAT EXCHANGER LASER WELDING
1. High pressure resistance is about 2 to 3 times higher than all gasket type heat exchanger. 2. Save maintenance cost. 3. Chemical resistance TCG o-ring and synthetic rubber are selectively used. 4. Nozzle pitch dimensions of semi-welded plate heat exchanger are same to those of following plate heat exchangers. WX-10 and RX-10 WX-50 and RX-50 WX-90 and UX-90 Therefore, RX-10, RX-50, UX-90 can be replaced to WX series without changing location of connection pipes. 5. Different from full welded plate heat exchanger, Semi-welded plate heat exchanger can be easily added plates to increase capacity. 6. Semi-welded plates heat exchanger can be disassembled and done easy maintenance against full welded plate heat exchanger.
GASKET PROCESS FLUID
ALL GASKET TYPE HEAT EXCHANGER GASKET PROCESS FLUID
ADVANTAGES 1. Heat Transfer coefficient is about 2 times as high as that of shell & tube heat exchager. The condensing surface is always secured and the heat transfer coefficient is improved because condensate is immediately drained out. 2. To achieve much less vapor pressure drop than the conventional Plate type Heat Exchanger, special consideration of plate characteristic is taken in contribution. 3. Cooling water consumption is about half of S&T heat exchanger. 4. The use of TCG gasket is selectively used and it expands the application to wide field. 5. Easy change of condensing capacity by increase or reducing the number of plates. 6. Because of inlet and out let connections at the same side, YX type can be applied not only an total condenser but also to partial condenser.

MULTI GAP PLATE
In order to extend the lifetime of the plate heat exchanger, it is important to watch changes in conditions. Frequently observed faults and causes are summarized below. If those faults are detected, please contact us and inform manufacturing number of the unit.
GX-21 provides 10mm channel space both for hot and cold sides, so that heat recovery can be performed between hot and cold slurry. GX-22 plate is made by reversing and upside down GX-21 plates. Mixed plate arrangement of GX-21 and GX-22 is named GX23. It gives the widest channel spacing (20mm) at one side, which is available for large size particles. GX plates have wider depth, larger corrugation pitch and less metal contact points, comparing to conventional plates.
Decreasing of performance
q Heat transfer performance It is necessary to clean the plates and remove scale, because of supposing scaling on the heat transfer surface.
w Flow performance Clogging of the port holes inlet and/or scale deposition on the heat transfer surfaces may be supposed. It is necessary to clean the unit and remove scale.
ADVANTAGES Leakage of fluids
1. Easy to flow throughout between plates. 2. GX series provides the widest channel spacing. 3. Mixed plates arrangement gives three types of channel spacing. 4. It is better performance for slurry, sludge and crystal containing liquid. 5. Electrolytic polishing selectively used for food application.
