|Clip 3 Plate Heat Exchanger|
|Clip 3-RM |
Pasteurization and general cooling/heating of dairy and brewery products, fruit juices and similar food products.
The heat exchanger consists of a number of corrugated plates clamped together in a frame and sealed at the edges by means of gaskets.
The plates have ports at the corners and the gaskets are so arranged that the two media flow through alternate passages between the plates. The two media are separated by the plates and cannot be mixed. Heat is transferred through the plates, from the hot medium to the cold.
One unit can contain several heat exchangers, separated by connection plates with interchangeable connections.
The frame consists of a fixed frame plate, a movable pressure plate, an upper carrying bar, a lower guiding bar, a support column and tightening bolts with nuts.
The Clip 3-RM frame plate has adjustable feet and the Clip 3-RMV is without feet for wall mounting.
The corrugation of the plates provides a passage between the plates, supports each plate against the adjacent one and enhances the turbulence, resulting in efficient heat transfer.
The plates have a chevron pattern for maximum strength at high working pressures.
The plates are reversible and have parallel flow, which means only one type of plate is needed.
The plates are supplied with glue-free Clip-On gaskets, which are easy to replace even with the plates still hanging in the frame.
No tools are needed to replace the gaskets.
