Our Inline Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers have been designed as a cost effective alternative to our shell and tube types. They consist of numerous 316 stainless steel heat transfer plates, two outer covers and four connections copper vacuum-brazed together to form an integral unit.
Unlike other brazed plate heat exchangers, ours have a unique internal flow arrangement, which enables the inlet and outlet connections to be axially inline. This means that they can be installed directly in pipework without any change of direction. see below
Each fluid stream flows in series through alternate plates. As a consequence, the plate spacing is larger and internal velocities are higher than is normally the case with this type of heat exchanger, thus rendering them less prone to fouling.
