PHEs are used in a wide variety of industries especially petroleum refinement, power generation, food & beverage processing, and chemical processing. PHEs are constructed through the use of specifically manufactured stainless steel and metal alloys heat transfer plates welded together and are often referred to as the "PHE" within PHE Units and Networks. The PHE is not dedicated to a single process, it is a highly versatile piece of equipment, and can be adjusted to suit various applications by the quantity and scale of the plates, flow patterns, heat transfer area, and pressure drop.
SmartHeat's PHEs offer the following Advantages:
By increasing heat capture, our PHEs can reduce energy usage by 20% and when used in conjunction with PHE Units by up to 36%, energy saving rates are significantly higher than domestic competitor'
Heavy turbulence and counter-flow principle enable an efficient heat transfer;
Heat transfer and pressure drop can be precisely regulated;
Our products can be customized to suit different industry applications by adding or removing plates or integrating thermally long and short plates;
Easily accessible for visual inspection and routine cleaning, our PHE products do not require excessive downtime or use of highly trained personnel for maintenance.
