Plate Condenser

Item No.: 010

Plate Condenser
Plate condensers are specifically apply for condensing of vapour in vacuum condition. These plate surface condensers are ideal for applications such as vacuum condensers in evaporation systems, ethanol condensers in bioethanol plants, pan vapour condensers in sugar refineries, and as turbine condensers in small power plants. With its compact design, it is easy to install where space is crucial.


Highly Efficient Features

Plate Condenser is ideal for alternative to bulky indirect shell-and-tube condensers. Furthmore it  is also apply for direct condensers when condensate recovery is the goal and when there are space limitation. The Plate Condenser can be designed with or without sub-cooling of the condensate. Non-condensables are removed from the condensate outlet pipe and led to the vacuum system.

Compact Structure and Easier to Maintenance  

Plate Condenser are easily accessible for inspection and mechanical Cleaning-in-Place by removing the tightening bolts and rolling back the pressure plate.  The evaporated Capacity could be adjusted or expanded by adding or reducing the Plates Pack which Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger couldn't realize. Equipped with well-designed frame System, Installnation needn't heavey duty Tools, just a special light Spanner is enought for Installing and Fastenning.

Working Principle 

As same to Semi-Welded Plate Heat Exchanger, the sealing between the plates on the Condensor alternates between laser welds and gaskets.  It has a unique porthole configuration that is specifically designed for vacuum condensation. Vapour condenses in the welded channel and the cooling water passes through the gasketed channel.

The channel gap size is asymmetric with a larger gap on the vapour side and a smaller gap on the cooling water side. The result is a very low pressure drop on the vapour side and high velocity and turbulence on the cooling water side. Together, these maximize heat transfer efficiency and minimize fouling.

1:1 Duplicated Model for ACon 400 and ACon 600 is available now, replacement semi-welded Plate Pack and Corresponding Gasket are under supply by enquiry.
