XPS Plate & Shell Heat Exchangers consist of two separate pressure sections, one consists of a plate pack made from corrugated plates which are welded together alternately at the circumference or port holes. The other consists of a shell tube which can be fully welded on both sides or as one-sided/two-sided openable model.

XPS heat exchangers are available with three different corrugation patterns:

  • Plates with a flat corrugation angle (H plates) allow high heat transfer rates caused by a highly turbulent flow.
  • Plates with a steep corrugation angle (L plates) are used in applications which have to be optimized for pressure loss.
  • In gas/gas applications or in slightly contaminated media plates with a greater channel cross-section (G plates) are used.

Further to this, the welding configuration of these units can be provided as follows:

  • Fully welded 
  • Accessible from one side 
  • Accessible from both sides
