Platular® smart hybrid welded plate heat exchangers

The combined advantages of both technologies with:
  • The thermal performance of plates
  • The mechanical resistance of tubes
  • Full counterflow heat exchanger

Different types of streams: 

BARRIQUAND has developed 5 types of exchange stream with different geometrical characteristics offering complementary thermal and hydraulic performance levels and enabling a low thermal approach and minimum pressure drop.

List of possible applications:

All types of heat exchange (counter flow heat exchanger in general) :
  • Liquid / liquid
  • Loaded liquids
  • Condensation
  • Evaporation
  • Gas / gas (incl. air to air heat exchanger)
  • Gas / liquid
  • Air / water heat exchanger
  • Overhead reflux condensers
Different types of Platular® smart hybrid welded plate heat exchanger (fully welded heat exchanger, welded block-type exchangers):
  • Type X : Especially designed for dirty fluids, these units can really generate important savings on cleaning and maintenance activities.
  • Type IJS : These units are part of the first generation of Platular® heat exchangers with first units introduced in the sixties.
  • Type PCV : Specially developed for district heating networks, this extremely robust Platular® heat exchanger has a high thermal performance.
  • Immerged plate type : can be made on request in numerous formats.
  • Internal heat exchanger (X type or IJS type) fit into distillation column.

Cleaning Platular® smart hybrid heat exchanger

Platular® smart hybrid welded plate heat exchangers are designed to reduce maintenance cost and are particularly easy to maintain:
  • The corrugated plates’ profiles increase turbulence with local variations of the fluids’ speeds, this lowers encrustation.

  • This said plate profile enables you to program efficient chemical cleanings of your heat exchanger without the need to open the units.

  • The absence of gaskets at the exchange surface’s level (between the plates) greatly facilitates their maintenance. The unit’s only gaskets are the flat gaskets on the doors, and they are designed so as not to be changed at each opening.

  • Platular® exchangers are equipped with hinged doors enabling them to be rapidly opened in order to perform mechanical cleaning with high-pressure cleaners. This practice is generally used during plant shutdown periods but can be done at any time, if required.

  • Platular® exchangers do not require back flush installation
