Copper heat exchanger

Technical Data

Typical Connection Locations   (Side-1: F1 & F4, Side-2: F2 & F3)
Sensible Application (liquids or gases - no phase change)

  1. For all models the F2 - F3 side has one extra channel, ie. BP 410-10 has 4 channels on the F1 - F4 side and 5 on the F2 - F3 side.
  2. Liquid applications should be plumbed in a counter-current, parallel, flow arrangement, (for example: Hot in at F1/Hot out at F4; Cold in at F3/Cold out at F2). Hot and cold side and in and out locations aren't critical as long as the piping is in a counter-current, parallel, flow arrangement. Unit may be mounted in any orientation.
  3. Connections may be on the front (ie. F1, F2, F3, F4) or back (ie. B1, B2, B3, B4) of the unit.

Phase Change Applications

  1. Units should be mounted in the vertical direction, similar to the figure above and plumbed with the vapor connection up and the liquid connection down on the phase change side see below.

WHEN SHOULD A PLATE & FRAME HEAT EXCHANGER BE SERVICED?

As a heat exchanger becomes fouled with dirt, debris or scale, often the modulating valve provides additional hot or cold liquid to help compensate for the loss of efficiency of the heat exchanger.

Over time the control valve will continue to open fully. Unfortunately, on the hottest or coldest days, even with the valve fully open the heat exchanger cannot meet the thermal transfer requirements and the situation becomes critical.

Monitoring just the operating temperature provides a false sense of security. Recording the difference in the outlet and inlet pressures provides a more accurate result of the amount of fouling.

Fouling equal to the thickness of a piece of paper represents a 20% loss of thermal efficiency. In addition, the energy cost for pumps increases since the pump must work harder to overcome the increased pressure resistance through the PHE

T.H. Industrial Solutions Inc. (THS) has been servicing industrial heat exchangers and solving process problems across Canada since 2009. THS head office is located in Pickering, Ontario with a 6,000 square foot service center in Hamilton, Ontario.

Today there are fewer qualified people in this industry that know the products and understand the applications. Utilizing hands on experience and knowledge that has been gained by our THS sales and service technicians for over the past 30 years, we will take the time to understand what you require and strive to provide a prompt, educated and accurate response at a competitive price.
