Types of Plate Heat Exchangers We Offer

At WCR UK, we understand that different industries and applications require different types of plate heat exchangers. That’s why we offer a diverse range of products to the global heat exchanger market to suit your specific needs. 

Gasketed Plate Heat Exchangers

Gasketed plate heat exchangers are renowned for their high efficiency and versatility. They consist of a series of thin, corrugated metal plates with gaskets held together in a frame.

The gaskets on products such as marine heat exchangers provide a seal between the plates and direct the flow of fluids. Ideal for applications with moderate temperature and pressure conditions, they offer easy maintenance and adaptability to changing conditions.

Discover more about plate heat exchanger cleaning.

Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers

Brazed plate heat exchangers are an excellent choice for high-temperature and high-pressure applications. Instead of gaskets, the plates in these exchangers are brazed together, typically with copper or nickel, to create a seal. This construction results in a durable, compact, and efficient heat exchanger requiring minimal maintenance.

Not only do we provide brazed plate heat exchanger installation we supply them too. Discover our range of brazed plate heat exchangers by contacting us today.

Brazed vs gasketed plate heat exchanger

Brazed plate heat exchangers, fused with brazing material, are robust and suitable for high-pressure, high-temperature applications. Conversely, gasketed plate heat exchangers, held together by gaskets, are appropriate for moderate conditions and require periodic maintenance, as they can be disassembled and reassembled.

Welded Plate Heat Exchangers

Welded plate heat exchangers are designed for the most demanding applications where gaskets are not viable due to high temperatures, high pressures, or aggressive media.

The plates are welded together, forming a highly durable seal that can withstand extreme conditions. They are particularly suited to chemical processing, oil and gas, and power generation industries. Explore our welded plate heat exchanger options.

Each type of plate heat exchanger we offer comes with its own unique advantages and is designed to meet the varied requirements of different industries.

Whether you need heat exchangers for moderate conditions or those designed to withstand extreme environments, we have the right solution for you.
