GESMEX has also re-engineered the Plate & Shell concept in parallel to this and in day to day client use, GESMEX provides the highest levels of reliability.
GESMEX is certified as a manufacturer according to the European Pressure Vessel Directive. GESMEX heat exchangers can be used in many different applications in nearly all industries. They heat, evaporate, cool and condense a lot of different media in all kinds of process plants.
GESMEX offers solutions for:
- Chemical Industry
- Petro Chemistry
- Oil & Gas Production
- Pharmaceutical Industry
- Fossil & Nuclear Power
- Bio Energy
- Paper & Steel
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
