In most applications, our plate heat exchangers transmit energy more efficiently than “Shell & Tube” heat exchangers, due to the significant turbulence levela created by the uniquely corrugated channels in our plates. One plate heat exchanger can contain more than two thousand square meters of super-efficient heat transfer area, with flow rates of more than 5,000 cubic meters per hour. A plate heat exchanger occupies only 10%-50% of the space that occupies a “Shell & Tube” unit and is much lighter in weight and usually at a lower cost also.
Plate heat exchangers achieves Heat Transfer Coefficients which are several times higher than “Shell & Tube”.
A plate heat exchanger can reach the temperatures (LMTD) of less than 1°C. The structure of the heat exchanger’s rubber gaskets does not allow fluid interference even in case of gaskets failure.
Krashin-Shalev is committed to maintaining the highest standards of design, manufacture and testing of plate heat exchangers These are designed with the help of optimization software and their performance is analyzed by our experts and they constitute an optimal proposal for the specific project, while providing possible alternatives. The bids are meticulously submitted and the Client, with the commercial approval of the offer, receives all the necessary technical and engineering information.
Customized heat exchangers
We will design for you a specific customized and tailor made heat exchanger to accurately and efficiently meet your needs, with the appropriate number of plates, their size, the material they are made of and in the perfect configuration, especially for your circumstances. If your needs change, the heat exchanger can be altered, by adding or removing plates. Each heat exchanger is thoroughly tested after assembly in our plant and tested for the required hydrostatic pressure on both sides.
We use this series for a variety of requirements and especially in cases where the flows are unbalanced and the allowed pressure slumps are adjacent. Better handling of unequal flow rates, accurate adjustment of allowable pressure slumps, and heat transfer rates for both fluids, provide the best overall system efficiency, with a lower heat exchanger cost. GXD Platform Technology utilizes a combination of two asymmetrical plate channels templates, in order to create six different flow channel configurations – and with more than 100 available plate channel combinations, we can tailor better heat transfer for your specific needs.
GL Plates offer a wide range of applications. These “fishbone” style plates at a high polarization angle, allow for the lowering of the pressure loss and allow maximal accuracy heat transfer. These plates have shown exceptional performances.
Brazed plate heat exchangers
Heat exchangers with stainless steel type 316 plates and copper brazing by vacuum oven brazing of heat transfer plates with copper sheets, in order to create sealing by brazing. These heat exchangers are often imported by us and usually supplied from our inventory for small applications. This type of heat exchanger is a low-cost solution for a limited selection of industrial and air conditioning processes as follows:
For more complex applications, we perform for you specific customized imports.
When not to use brazed plate heat exchangers:
Stainless steel type 316 welded Plate Heat exchangers
Heat exchangers welded from stainless steel type 316 without the use of gaskets without copper brazing but in stainless steel welding and can be cleaned in a one circuit for pressures even above 25 bar and temperatures above 150°C.
We can provide unique welded plate heat exchangers with a mechanical cleaning option in one of the circuits.
When is it recommended to choose welded plate heat exchangers?
Spiral heat exchangers
Designed for usage in contaminated industrial processes, usually in the chemical and petrochemical industries especially with high viscosity solids:
Welded Heat Exchangers (Shell & Plate)
It is an integral heat exchanger as a complete unit with welded plates one to the other, usually of stainless steel type 316 and assembled inside the shell of stainless steel or carbon steel. Complete units imported from abroad are adapted to your specifications.
