DOLPHIN has tied up with CIPRIANI, Italy, to serve the Middle East region with the latest Plate Heat Exchangers. CIPRIANI provides wide range of PHE’s promising long lasting guaranteed performances.
Why use a plate heat exchanger?
Compared to the traditional spiral or shell-tube heat exchangers, PHEs of similar capacity take up very little floor space and at the same time are easily expandable. PHEs deliver greater efficiency, lower cost, easier cleaning and maintenance, and a closer approach temperature than any other heat transfer technology.
How does a Plate Heat Exchanger Work?
Like PHE’s in general, the Dolphin Plate Heat Exchangers from CIPRIANI provides more efficient heat transfer by design. Each unit consists of a series of grooved plates that are individually gasketed and pressed tightly together by compression bolts within a frame. Fluids enter and exit the PHE through portholes in one or both ends of the frame. Within the unit, the fluid to be heated or cooled flows down one side of each plate, while the heating or cooling medium flows in the opposite direction across the other side. The huge temperature difference created by these opposite flows allows maximum heat transfer efficiency for closest possible approach temperature.
While hot and cold fluids flow in opposite directions across a single plate, the flow pattern between plates can vary.
