Plateflow is designed to provide close temperature control of fluids for heat recovery applications where space is a prime consideration. Efficient countercurrent flow yields heat transfer coefficients that are three to five times greater than other types of exchangers. From ITT Standard, unit can be specified in 20 different models for heat transfer surface as high as 9,180 ft2. Plates are removable for service and maintenance.
