SH-WAVE® Welded Plate Heat Exchanger is tailor made, counter flow corrugated plate heat exchanger sealing by Laser Welding Seam.
Without any filed gaskets and O-ring Gaskets, which apply for Plate Pack’s sealing, SH-WAVE® Welded Plate Heat Exchanger features * Solid Structure with accessible for service and maintenance; * flexible with tough duty; * Compact with high efficiency.
How does SH-WAVE® Welded Plate Heat Exchanger works?
Like conventional Plate and Gasket Heat Exchanger that uses metal corrugated plates to transfer heat between two counter-flow fluids, each fluid is flowing surface of corrugated plate separately, no any interference and contact.
For Plate and Gasket Heat Exchanger, Each fluid flow route or passage is seal or enclosed by Field Gaskets and O-ring Gaskets, actually the gaskets are vulnerable parts, easier to be damaged by exposing an extreme working condition.
Whereas, SH-WAVE® Welded Plate Heat Exchanger is seal by welding seam, forming into welded plates pack for a 100% gasket-free condition in thermal transfer area.
The plates are compressed together in a rigid frame to form an arrangement of parallel flow channels with alternating hot and cold fluids. Hot and cold fluids are leading by distribution chamber and connection in corresponding side of plate heat exchanger.
The frame is also fastened by numbers of fasten bolts. With a proper saddle, the SH-WAVE® Welded Plate Heat Exchanger is in completed structure.
What are advantages for SH-WAVE® Welded Plate Heat Exchanger?
1. Accessible for service and maintenance, easier to open two sides for Water Flushing
2. Solid Structure make sure durable for long time service
For SH-WAVE, the bubble-corrugated plate is forming by one time pressing, no extra accessories and welding job engaged, so it has good pressure undertaking configuration; it has less chance to deposit fibrous impurities, less risk for deposit corrosion;
For Spiral Plate Heat Exchanger, the flow channel is supported by numbers of welded support columns, more welding job engaged, so it faces more risks in welding quality and deposit corrosion.
3. Flexible with tough duty, Compact with high efficiency.
For SH-WAVE, it is counter-flow plate heat exchanger, more flexible and compact structure with high efficiency can realize. Same Capacity, Less Land Area, furthermore, Tailor-made structure can flexibly meet connections and space arrangement on site.
The Main Models for SH-WAVE® Welded Plate Heat Exchanger SH-WAVE Wide Gapwelded plate heat exchanger is suitable for high viscosity fluids, fibrous fluids or fluids with coarse particles.
According to applications, SH-WAVE Wide Gap can be arranged either with Wide-Wide or Wide-Narrow Gaps, offer more flexible combinations.
The main applications for SH-WAVE Wide Gap
Pulp & Paper Plant
AIR-WAVE Air Cooler
How does air cooler work?
The thermal transfer is also through corrugated plate by air/gas via water or cooling liquid agent, the flow could be counter flow or concurrent flow depending on duties. Generally high temperature air or gas is passing from Air distributor and Air chamber to surface of transfer plates by hot channels, meanwhile, the cooling water is passing from other side either by cold water channels, the thermal transferring happened through “AIR-WAVE” plates.
How many types of air cooler in common application?
SHINEHEAT can offer two different solutions for air cooler, the main different part is transfer plates, the one is by Welded Pillow Plates, and another is by Corrugated “AIR-WAVE” Plates.
We could offer alternative production according to initial investment, working condition and process situation.
For “AIR-WAVE”, it features compact structure, higher-pressure resistance and flexible structure compatible, it widely apply for Air Cooler, Gas Heater or Flue Gas heat recycle.
“AIR-WAVE” Air Cooler can utilize its structure flexibility to match Gas/Air Inlet special situation on site, also easily access for maintenance and service.
SH-WAVE® welded plate heat exchanger could be Plate Condenser for Vacuum condensation. Welded Plate Condenser Consists of Welded plates pack with plates are all welded together in pairs. Unlike the Gasketed Plate Condenser or Semi Welded Type Plate Condenser, it is free of Rubble and O-Ring Gaskets, this minimizes service and maintenance cost in life span.
Why Choice Welded Plate Heat Exchanger as a Condenser?
Like all SH-WAVE production, it also features a flexible structure compatiblity; it could be tailored-making.
Vertical Installation design is better for steam condensation from Top to Bottom ending up by condensate.
The connection size is also flexible according to application flow rate, which is not limited by Plate Size.
Furthermore, the Plate Corrugation and Gap are specifically design for optimal condensation with an asymmetric design, which a large gap on the steam/vapor side and a small gap on the cooling water side.
