Plate and Frame Heat Exchanger

 Plate Heat ExchangersWestern Canada Heat Exchanger Ltd. is proud to sell, maintain, and distribute plate heat exchangers. The plate heat exchanger is widely recognized today as the most economical and efficient type of heat exchanger on the market.  With its low cost, flexibility, easy maintenance, and high thermal efficiency it is unmatched by any type of heat exchanger.  The key to the plate heat exchangers efficiency lies in it's plates.  With corrugation patterns that induce turbulent flow, it not only achieves unmatched efficiency, it also creates a self-cleaning effect thereby reducing fouling.  Our plate exchangers have plate corrugations available in different pressing depths and patterns depending on the application.  All are designed to achieve turbulence across the entire heat transfer area in order to get the highest possible heat transfer coefficients with the lowest possible pressure drop and allow for close temperature approaches.  Consequently this means smaller heat transfer area, smaller heat exchangers and sometimes even less heat exchangers.  This again means less space requirements, reduced secondary flow rates and smaller pumps.
