A new kind of highly efficient heat exchanger constructed of a number of titanium sheets with specific corrugated forms is called a titanium plate heat exchanger. Heat exchange occurs through the half plates, which are arranged in thin rectangular channels between the various plates.
The titanium plate heat exchanger’s basic design. Frame and titanium plate make up the majority of a titanium plate heat exchanger. Titanium plates are created by pressing titanium plates into corrugations with a variety of molds. Each titanium plate has four corners with angular holes for media flow channels.
Rubber gaskets are used to seal the titanium plate’s perimeter and corner holes. A fixed pressing plate, a moveable pressing plate, upper and lower guide rods, and clamping bolts make up the frame. The titanium plates are stacked between the fixed compression plate and the moveable compression plate to create the titanium plate heat exchanger, which is then secured by clamping bolts.
The current 5113 line, which offers cupro nickel and stainless steel versions, is already a market leader for Bowman. Swimming pool heat exchanger sales have significantly increased globally ever since the 5113 series was introduced. With the new Titanium Heat Exchanger, which bolsters our already well-known 5113 brand, we anticipate significant sales increase.
For quick PHE construction and fulfilment, Tricor Metal keep SS316 and titanium plates in stock. For practically all brands of PHEs, They provide replacement parts and reconditioning services.
Thinner PHE plates : There is a growing demand of the use of titanium metal to make thinner, wider PHE plates to increase the efficiency and the performance.
PHE Thermal and Hydraulic Performance : All manufacturers’ developed titanium PHE plates undergo thermal and hydraulic tests to obtain the required accurate correlations for the computer based design of PHEs with these for commercial use.
Use in ship industry of titanium PHE : Due to salt corrosion that happens in ships often, titanium PHEs are becoming pretty common in ship industry to strengthen the corrosion treatment of sheet metal as titanium is less corrosive in nature.
Welded Plate Heat Exchanger in eclectic power plants : In the electric power field, welded titanium tubes for power plant condensers or titanium sheets (hoops) used as materials for welded titanium tubes are the main applications for titanium. Welded titanium tubes for condensers are used in thermal power generation or nuclear power generation.
The Global Titanium Plate Heat Exchanger (PHE) market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Titanium has exceptional corrosion resistance, especially in chlorine-containing fluids, and despite its high cost, titanium-made plate heat exchangers are still commonly used in corrosive applications. The shaping of the plate, which is currently primarily done by pressing plate, is the key to producing plate heat exchangers.
Pure titanium GR1, GR2, and titanium palladium alloy with a thickness of 0.4 to 1.5 mm are typically used to create titanium and titanium alloy plate heat exchangers.
Heat transfer efficiency and flow resistance are significantly impacted by the heat transfer plate’s corrugated design. The Z-shaped corrugated plate and the horizontal flat corrugated plate are the two most common varieties of corrugated heat transfer plates that have been designed to fulfill the requirements of various heat transfer circumstances.
Carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum and its alloys, brass, monel alloy, nickel, titanium, etc. are all examples of sheet materials.
