APV HYBRID All Welded Plate Heat Exchanger


Since 1981, the APV HYBRID PLATE HEAT EXCHANGER has been firmly established in the industry. The broad range of possible construction forms for the hybrid system allows for the best possible solution to be found for given thermal, physical and geometrical conditions. The fully welded APV HYBRID PLATE HEAT EXCHANGER ensures that different media are safely kept separate- even when higher pressures and temperatures are applied. This means that there is a wider range of possible applications than where the gasketed plate heat exchangers can be applied.

THE APV HYBRID proves superior in any respect when compared to shell & tube heat exchangers with the usual construction design and identical conditions for process engineering. Its compact design allows a heating surface density of 250 m²/m³. The special construction of the flow pattern ensures that the heat transfer for gases as well as for liquids is extremely enhanced. A further advantage in comparison with shell & tube heat exchangers is the high economic efficiency of the APV HYBRID HEAT EXCHANGER. The use of less material means considerable cost reduction potential when high-grade alloys are required.

APV HYBRID All Welded Plate Heat Exchanger Features:
  • Operational temperature range between -328°F and 1652°F ( -200°C and 900°C )
  • Pressure range between vacuum and 871 psig/60 bar
  • Fully welded construction (no gaskets)
  • Broad range of construction configurations
  • Compact design allows the installation of up to 6000 m? heating surface per unit
  • Economic use of materials and low weight
  • Exchange surfaces with plate thickness between 0.5 and 1.0 mm
  • Available in a variety of high grade alloys
  • Very efficient heat transfer even at low pressure drop
  • Self-cleaning effect by means of strong turbulence, no dead spots in the flow
  • Works as gas or liquid exchanger, condenser or evaporator
  • Low filling charge and short length of stay protects the product
  • Possible to achieve very accurate temperature approaches
