Ideally suited for a broad range of food processing duties where there is a tendency for the product to foul the heated surface or where large temperature-induced viscosity changes are likely to occur. Four frame sizes holding up to a maximum of 500 plates (0.6 mm thick) are available with a port diameter of 2.5” making the Vega frames capable of processing up to 250 U.S. GPM or 60 cu. m/hour of product. Plates are available in a wide thickness range (0.5 to 0.8 mm) making them adaptable to a large range of process design pressures.
High Heat Transfer
APV Plate Heat Echangers have film coefficients three to five-times greaterEfficient operation with up to 98% heat recovery or regenerationLow liquid hold-up enables faster reaction times to change in processFluids flow counter-current to each other between the parallel passages in each
APV Plate Heat Exchangers reduce floor space by up to 90%, weighs less and delivers higher performanceLower hold-up volume minimizes the amount of product required for flooding, reduces usage of high cost service fluids and improves thermal reaction timesReduced capital costs and installation expensesHigh energy recovery reduces energy costs
