This technology module contains a brief introductory description to the exchanger typeabove, followed by information on construction, construction materials, operating limitsand principal applications. Where appropriate, a comparison is made with conventionalshell and tube heat exchangers to emphasise size and weight reductions that can beachieved by using compact heat exchangers.

2.1.1Plate and Frame Heat Exchangers2.1.1.1Introduction
The plate and frame heat exchanger was one of the first compact exchangers to be used in theUK process industries, being originally introduced in 1923; the first plates were made of gunmetal. It is currently second to the shell and tube heat exchanger in terms of marketshare.The most common variant of the plate and frame heat exchanger consists of a number of pressed, corrugated metal plates compressed together into a frame. These plates are providedwith gaskets, partly to seal the spaces between adjacent plates and partly to distribute themedia between the flow channels. The most common plate material is stainless steel.Plate and frame heat exchangers were first used in the food and dairy industries, where theability to access plate surfaces for cleaning is imperative.Figure 2.1.1 – Close-up View of a Heat Exchanger Plate(Courtesy of APV)
