HRSFUNKE heat transfer plates are characterised by optimum embossing, which leads to high heat transfer coefficients. This results in a low cost heat exchanger which achieves the best possible performance irrespective of the application conditions. Our product range includes single-pass and multi-pass plate heat exchangers with a heat exchange surface of up to 2000 m². In the field of plate heat exchangers HRSFUNKE offers a sophisticated range of products able to meet almost any requirement in machine and plant engineering. HRSFUNKE’s special “off-set” system with asymmetrical flow gaps creates highly efficient and cost-effective units whose performance (depending on design) is up to 17 percent higher when compared with conventional plate heat exchangers. The “HRSFUNKE” brand stands for highest quality standards and customer-oriented solutions.

Plate heat exchanger parts hrsfunke

The plate heat exchanger consists of a pack with linked up embossed plates with passage openings. Every second plate is staggered by 180°, creating a flow gap at any given time. All plates are provided with tied up or glued gaskets, which completely seal the various flow gaps from the outside and separate the media involved in heat exchange. The plate package is mounted in a rack and is pressed between fixed plate and pressure plate by means of clamping bolts. During service life the gaskets of a plate heat exchanger are subject to a normal fatigue process and therefore the plate package can be retightened several times - dependent on conditions of use - until "PP"-minimum is reached. Connections of media involved in heat exchange are on the fixed plate, in case of multi-pass flow also on the pressure plate (see basic scheme below).

Plate materials - depending on application - are chromium nickel steel, chromium nickel molybdenum steel and titanium with other materials available on request. Gasket materials are - NBR, EPDM, Viton and silicone with other materials available on request.

Plate heat exchanger single/multiple plates hrsfunke
Single-pass flow - All connections are on the fixed plate
Multi-pass flow - Connections are on the fixed plate and on the pressure plate

Advantages of Plate Heat Exchangers (PHE)
  • Low investment, operation and maintenance costs.
  • Highly efficient heat transfer (K- values on average 3-5 times higher than in case of bare-tube heat exchangers).
  • Asymmetrical flow gap available for the most cost effective solution.
  • Use of smallest temperature difference <= 1°C.
  • Up to 75% less space required.
  • Self - cleaning effect due to highly turbulent flow behaviour.
  • Future additional capacity is possible by fitting extra heat transfer plates.
  • Double gasket with leak groove gives high safety with regards to media mixing.
  • Easy to open / clean.
  • Low operating weight / low liquid content.
