Plate heat exchanger
Armstrong’s gasketed Plate Heat Exchanger (PHE) product line includes more than 20 different models and offers numerous configurations, connections and material options, providing a superior heat transfer solution for any HVAC application.
The Armstrong PHE Series achieves the highest efficiency and heat transfer rates by flowing the two media in opposite directions (counter-current) in a highly turbulent fashion. The temperature gain or loss between the hot fluid and the cold fluid at a given flow rate is the regeneration rate. With counter-current flows, high turbulence and optimized corrugation, Armstrong Series PHE units provide regeneration rates of up to 90%.
% Regeneration = ( Tin [hot fluid] - Tout [hot fluid] ) / ( Tin [hot fluid] - Tin [cold fluid] ) x 100
The X Series plates are specifically designed to produce the highest heat transfer efficiencies.
Armstrong PHE Series heat exchangers offer multiple plate geometries to provide the optimum heat transfer solution for a given application.
