About Plate Heat Exchangers
The plate heat exchanger has become one of the most popular types of heat exchanger. There are two popular types the first is the all gasket plate heat exchanger and the second is the brazed plate heat exchanger.
Both types have their advantages, for example the gasket type plate heat exchangers offer excellent thermal performance to size ratio when compared to a shell & tube heat exchanger design. Cleaning and repairs are generally much easier to carry out on the gasket type plate heat exchanger and in many cases have a lower capital cost. For these reasons this type of heat exchanger is popular with engineers for many types of industrial applications.
Brazed type plate heat exchanges are more compact & generally cheaper than plate & gasket on smaller applications. These are kept in stock or have very quick lead times if not.
Both the gasket plate heat exchanger and the brazed plate heat exchanger are commonly manufactured using Stainless steel for the heat transfer plates with other materials such as Titanium & Duplex being widely available. Aluminium is often used in brazed and the de fusion welded type plate heat exchangers.

Safe Plate Heat Exchanger
Safe plate heat exchangers have a double wall so if for any reason a plate fails and leaks it does not mix with the other side it also can be seen on the outside if a leak appears as opposed to regular plate heat exchangers which you would not be able to tell until your system fails due to contaminated fluids.
