  3. 3. INTRODUCTION  Heat exchangers are devices that provide the flow of thermal energy between two or more fluids at different temperatures without mixing with each other.  A Plate Heat Exchanger is a type of heat exchanger that uses metal plates to transfer heat between two fluids.  Applications:  Power Plants  Process Industries  Chemical & Food Industries  Air Conditioning & Refrigeration  Waste Heat Recovery  Space Application
  4. 4. CONSTRUCTION  The main elements of plate heat exchanger (PHE) are fixed frame and compression plate, connecting ports, plates.  The heat transfer surface is composed of series of plates with parts for fluid entry and exit in the four corners.  The plate pack is tightened by means of either a mechanical or hydraulic tightening device.  The warmer medium will give some of its heat energy through the thin plate wall to the colder medium on the other side.  Leakage from the plates to the surroundings is prevented by using gaskets.
  5. 5. FLOW PATTERN IN A PHE  The hot fluid flows through one channel and the cold through the other channel.  The fluids flow between alternative passages formed between two packed plates.  The flow through the plates is controlled by using gaskets.  The corrugated pattern on the plate induces turbulence and thus enhances heat transfer.
  6. 6. PLATES  Most of the commercial plates in PHE are chevron type, which have a surface corrugation pattern called washboard.  In chevron type, adjacent plates are assembled such that the flow channels provides swirling motion to the fluids. This promotes turbulence by continuously changing flow direction and velocity of the fluids.  The corrugated pattern has an angle 𝛽, which is referred to the chevron angle.  The chevron angle is reversed on adjacent plates so that when plates are clamped together, the corrugations provide numerous contact points.  The chevron angel varies between the extremes of about 65⁰ and 25⁰ and determines the pressure drop and heat transfer characteristics of the plate.
  7. 7. PLATE MATERIALS  Plates are made from all malleable materials.  The most common materials are stainless steel, titanium, titanium-palladium, aluminum, aluminum brass, etc.  Plate material is chosen depending on the type of heat transfer fluids, type of application and the environment of use. For example: Titanium plates are used in sea water and marine applications to prevent corrosion of plates by the saline water.  The table shows the different types of plate material and their thermal conductivity.
  8. 8. DESIGN LOGIC FOR HEAT EXCHANGER  The corrugations increase the surface area of the plate as compared to the original flat area.  This is expressed as the surface enlargement factor, φ which is defined as the ratio of the actual effective area as specified by the manufacturer, A1, to the projected plate area A1p  Where, and ;  Here DP is the port diameter.  Φ is between 1.15 and 1.25. In practical application it is assumed to be 1.17
  9. 9. MEAN FLOW GAP  Flow channel is the conduit formed by two adjacent plates between the gaskets.  The mean channel spacing, b, is defined as 𝒃 = 𝒑 − 𝒕  where p is the plate pitch or the outside depth of the corrugated plate and t is the plate thickness.  Channel spacing, b is required for calculating mass velocity and Reynolds number which is not usually specified for manufacturer.  The plate pitch is not to be confused with the corrugation pitch. Plate pitch is found by:  Where, Nt is total number of plates and Lc is compressed plate pact length.
  10. 10. CHANNEL HYDRAULIC DIAMETER  The hydraulic diameter of the channel Dh is defined as, with approximation b<<Lw  The heat transfer coefficient will strongly depend on the chevron inclination 𝜷 relative to flow direction.  Heat Transfer and friction factor increases with 𝜷.  Nusselt Number, 𝑁𝑢 = ℎ𝐷ℎ 𝑘
  11. 11. HEAT TRANSFER COEFFICIENT
  12. 12. CHANNEL MASS VELOCITY  The channel mass velocity is given by:  where, Ncp is the number of channels per pass and is obtained from  where, Nt is the total number of plates and Np is the number of passes.  Hence Reynolds number can be found using, 𝑅𝑒 = 𝐺 𝑐 𝐷ℎ 𝜇
  13. 13. PRESSURE DROP  The total pressure drop is composed of the friction channel pressure drop ΔPc and the port pressure drop ΔPp.  The friction factor, f is obtained from the above table and Leff is the effective length of the fluid flow path between inlet and outlet ports.  The pressure drop in the port ducts Δpp can be roughly estimated as,  Where,  Therefore, Total pressure drop, ΔPT = ΔPc + ΔPP
  14. 14. OVERALL HEAT TRANSFER COEFFICIENT  The overall heat transfer coefficient for a clean surface is  and under fouling conditions (fouled or service overall heat transfer coefficient) is  Where h and c stand for hot and cold streams respectively.
  15. 15. HEAT TRANSFER SURFACE AREA  The required heat duty, Qr , for cold and hot streams is  On the other hand, the actually obtained heat duty, Qf , for fouled conditions is defined as  Where A is total area of effective plates, F is the fouling factor and the true mean temperature difference. ΔTm, for the counter flow arrangement is given as  Where ΔT1 and ΔT2 are the terminal temperature differences at the inlet and outlet.
  16. 16. ADVANTAGES  The gasket design minimizes the risk of internal leakage. Any failure in the gasket results in leakage to the atmosphere which is easily detectable on the exterior of the unit.  Flexibility of design through a variety of plate sizes and pass arrangements.  Efficient heat transfer, high heat transfer coefficient for both fluids because of turbulence and a small hydraulic diameter.  Very compact (large heat transfer area to volume ratio) and low in weight in spite of their compactness.  The heat losses are negligible and no insulation is required as only the plate edges are exposed to the atmosphere.  Plate units exhibits low fouling characteristics due to high turbulence.
