Plate type heat exchanger
Construction
 Frame
The heat exchanger consists of a frame plate (Head), a pressure plate (Follower), a carrying bar, a lower bar and a column. Tightening bolts are
used to press the plates together. This is depending on the type of heat exchanger and can be different in some applications. 
Plates
The plate package consists of plates with a groove along the rim of the plate and around the ports. The number of plates is, as well as size and dimension, dependant on the thermal output required. Depending on the application stainless steel or titanium plates might be used.

Gaskets
The groove provided in the plates holds the special gasket. The purpose of this gasket is to prevent intermixing of the media and leakage to the outside. The gaskets are selected to suit the actual combination of temperature, chemical environment and possible other conditions to be considered. They can be supplied in Viton, Nitrile or EPDM.
