Maintenance and Cleaning of Heat Exchanger Plates
We know that any industrial equipment requires special care and proper maintenance. The plate heat exchanger is no exception to this rule.
Periodic maintenance is recommended to always keep it running efficiently, in order to prolong life and reduce production hours lost to unscheduled outages.
Replacement of rubber gaskets and proper cleaning of the plates allow a better thermal exchange and avoids fouling and corrosion of the plates as well as the contamination of products.
- Removal of used gaskets
- Penetrating liquid test
- Chemical cleaning of plates and grooves with suitable products for stainless steel
- Gluing / fixing of new rubber gaskets
