News provided by Share this article DUBLIN, Jan. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets The global gasketed plate heat exchanger market was valued at $3.1 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $5.1 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2022 to 2031. Gasketed plate heat exchanger transfer heat energy from one side to another without the two products on either side mixing. In gasketed plate heat exchanger, each heat transfer plate is fitted with an elastomeric gasket, which seals and distributes the process fluids. The heads, normally referred to as channel covers, include connections to permit the entry of the process fluid into the plate pack. In addition, it consists of a stack of individually stamped heat transfer plates made of stainless steel or other material. The plate stack is clamped using bolts in a frame consisting of a fixed cover and a moveable cover. However, to separate the two circuits, gasketed plate heat exchanger can be installed between the boiler and process circuit. Gasketed plate heat exchanger is mainly known for its compact size and high efficiency design that it offers. The channel formed by two adjacent plates is the key to the plate heat exchanger's high efficiency. The hot and cold fluids are distributed through alternate channels in a counter-current arrangement. This counter-current flow provides for maximum thermal efficiency. The flow pattern induces turbulence at very low Reynolds numbers, which contributes to high heat transfer rates. Units are custom selected to effectively optimize the available pressure drop. The fluid shear stresses in a plate exchanger are much higher than those of a tubular exchanger. This tends to keep the channels in a plate exchanger much cleaner. For clean services, the normal practice is to provide units designed for 100% of the surface area required. For fluids that foul, plate exchangers can be provided with 5-10% excess area. Gasketed plate heat exchanger has ample of applications such as boiler / heating separation, domestic hot water (DHW) heating, steam to water heating, heat pumps, industrial process liquid heating & cooling, swimming pool heating, chemical heating & cooling, either in-line or on a batch process, heating, ventilating & air conditioning (HVAC), marine - (titanium plates) for uses such as main engine cooling, oil cooling, intercoolers, & deck wash water heating, dairy - milk pasteurizing, raw milk cooling, food products, & CIP wash water heating, brewing - wort cooling, beer/lager/cider conditioning, and pharmaceutical - hygienic water heating / cooling. However, rise in demand for such applications has led to surge the demand for gasketed plate heat exchanger that may act as the major driving factor for the market.
