Gasketed Plate Heat Exchanger

Gasket type plate heat exchangers contain a stack of thin horizontally stacked plates with gaskets in-between. The hot and cold fluids flow on either side of the plate in a pure counter-current arrangement. The plates are stamped with a pattern designed to induce turbulence and therefore improve heat transfer. This type of heat exchanger can achieve extremely narrow thermal approaches and therefore offers a much more compact design than shell & tube heat exchangers.
