Heat Exchanger Re-Gasketing Procedure

Plate Logging & Expert Review

Every plate is recorded for accountability and clarity during maintenance. Our seasoned experts inspect each piece before any work starts, ensuring only necessary parts are reconditioned.

Thorough Cleaning

We start with a thorough cleaning involving strong pressure wash and if needed, a hand scrub to clear build-up. Plates then undergo a chemical bath tailored to their material, removing deposits and boosting efficiency. Stubborn glue is tackled with a special agent. Our cleaning method is industry-leading.

Dye Testing for Precision

Our comprehensive dye testing procedure and integrity leak detection spots cracks or flaws before regasketing. We can detect even tiny imperfections using a special dye, preventing future issues and saving on potential costs.

Gasket Groove Prep

Proper preparation is vital. Any leftover glue can affect new gasket adhesion. Our experts spot and address issues like rolled grooves, which can cause leaks, ensuring the plate pack seals correctly. We can often repress plates, extending their lifespan.

Gasket Application

We use gasket materials tailored to your needs and the right adhesives based on various factors. Each gasket is cleaned and then expertly applied by our seasoned team.

Oven Cure for Durability

Gaskets are compressed and then heat cured in an oven to strengthen their bond. This method, standard at WCR, ensures gaskets last longer and work efficiently after re-installation.

Final Check & Testing

Plates undergo a final inspection for any issues. If provided, plates are arranged in order for easy installation. Plate packs with frames are tested to mimic real-world use. Every plate must pass our quality control. If any fail within a year* under set conditions, we’ll replace them free of charge.

*Conditions apply. Changes in operation causing damage aren’t covered.
