Gasketed Plate Heat Exchangers


The Gasketed Plate Heat Exchanger – Hxxx-LIQUID

Gasketed plate heat exchangers are particularly suitable for large flows and high cooling capacities. The stack of heat transfer plates and gaskets is clamped together with bolts in a frame. This means that it is possible to dismantle the plate heat exchanger for cleaning and maintenance. Furthermore, it is possible to add more plates at a later date to achieve a higher capacity.

For applications with seawater, it is also possible to supply a plate heat exchanger with titanium heat transfer plates. Various stamp designs can cater for heavily contaminated or high viscosity fluids to suit particular applications, or even if the temperature difference between the hot and cold medium is only minimal.

Safety heat exchangers with double-walled plates serve in situations where the strict isolation of different media is mandatory.


Gasketed plate heat exchangers consist of a set of adjoining embossed plates with apertures.

The plates are assembled at a 180° angle to each other, resulting in a flow gap. The gasket, which is mechanically secured or glued onto every plate, ensures that the flow gaps are securely sealed to the outside and from the second medium involved in the heat exchange.

The plate assembly is mounted in a frame and compressed with tightening bolts between the fixed plate and the movable plate.

Our product range includes single and multiple-pass plate heat exchangers with heat exchange surfaces of up to 2,000 m².



Technical data
  • Heat exchange surface per plate: 0.04 - 3 m²
  • Max. operating pressure: 25 bar
  • Max. operating temperature: 200°C

Our plates come with a double gasket at the inlet and outlet to prevent mixing of the two media. If designed as a safety heat exchanger, double plates are provided with a special gasket system.

Special series
  • Safety plate heat exchangers (FPDW)
  • Stainless steel versions for food and pharmaceutical applications
  • Plate heat exchangers in redundant configuration, installed as a compact unit on base frame, incl. switch-over valve, thermostat and safety valves
