Guard against gasket wear in plate heat exchangers

Gaskets used in plate heat exchangers (photo) wear over time, due to natural aging, and the effect of temperature, pressure and stress that results from natural operating conditions. Getting the best performance from a plate heat exchanger and minimizing the risk of unplanned downtime requires regular preventive maintenance, especially when the unit is used for hygienic applications within the food, beverage, pharmaceutical and personal care industries. Particular focus is needed to ensure the integrity and performance of the heat transfer and sealing efficiencies of the plates and gaskets. This company’s HX Advisor is an easy-to-use tool that provides advice and support during selection of heat exchangers and auxiliaries. — Alfa Laval, Richmond, Va.
