1. Initial Plate Log and Inspection
2. Clean and Remove Gaskets
3. Dye Test
4. Prepare Gasket Groove
Gasket groove preparation is imperative before applying new gaskets. Left-over glue residue can cause the new gaskets not to adhere correctly and dramatically reduce the lifetime of the gaskets. Rolled grooves are the #1 cause of external leakage. Trained professionals at WCRUK are taught to identify a rolled groove during the inspection process to prevent the regasketing of the plate. If it’s not identified, the plate pack will not seal properly, causing costly downtime. WCRUK will be able to repress the plates in most cases to allow the plate back into operation, saving money and extending the life of the heat exchanger.
5. Apply Gasket
6. Compress & Oven Cure
7. Final Inspection & Hydro-Test
Every plate is carefully inspected for gasket straightness, solid bonding, excess adhesives, and deformations. If drawings or arrangements are supplied, the plate sequence will be returned to assembly order, allowing for quick and easy installation. Plate packs sent along with frames are hydro-tested to simulate the operating levels of the application. No plate will leave our facility without passing this final quality control stage.
If any plates immediately fail in operation*, replacement plates are provided at no additional charge.
*Up to a year. However, this depends on maintaining set operating conditions after the plates are re-installed into the unit. Any changes in operation that cause damage to the plates/gaskets are not covered in this guarantee.
