Fully Welded Plate Heat Exchangers (Compabloc)
Fully welded plate heat exchangers (Compabloc) convince with their compact size, excellent heat transfer coefficients and comparatively low investment costs. They are notably robust and require very little cleaning and maintenance.
Fully welded plate heat exchangers are used in applications with high temperatures and high pressures. They are available in different designs, e.g. as Bloc (e.g. CompaBloc from Alfa Laval, FunkeBloc from Funke). This type of construction consists of a welded plate pack (Bloc) and is completed with 4 screwed frame plates. Application ranges up to 400°C and up to 40 bar are possible (depending on manufacturer). In addition to the Bloc design, there are also plate and shell heat exchangers (e.g. XPS heat exchangers from Gesmex). Compared to the shell and tube heat exchangers, the plate and shell design has the advantage that the heat transfer surface is designed as a plate and the cylindrical shell is taken over from the shell and tube heat exchanger. The application limits range from vacuum up to 400 bar and from -200 °C up to 500 °C.
The complete and simple possibility of cleaning both circuits makes it a maintenance-friendly, welded heat exchanger on the market. Of course we clean your fully welded plate heat exchanger (Compabloc) for you. We clean and service the fully welded plate heat exchangers (Compabloc) at our factory.
