Accu-therm Plate Heat Exchangers

Accu-therm plate heat exchangers provide highly efficient heat transfer solutions whether processing simple fluids, or semi-viscous solutions. Ideal for cooling or heating clear liquids such as, but not limited to, process water, wine/juice, milk, beer, pool water, and condenser water. This style of heat exchanger is considered to be the ultimate in compact footprint, value for money and efficiency. Our technical support team sizes each exchanger for your specific applications and these heat exchangers can be selected from models designed for flow rates as low as 200 litres/hour, increasing up to 1.2 million litres/hour.

Available with Stainless Steel components, Accu-Therm Plate Heat Exchangers are designed to provide hygienic and maintenance-free operation to food and beverage manufacturers and removes the need for the chemical laden epoxy coatings or spray paints essential for traditional mild steel frames. The stainless steel construction has several other advantages over traditional powder coated frames, including low maintenance costs, aesthetics; elimination of painting and a sanitary finish with high corrossion resistance. Teralba plate heat exchangers include plate materials such as 316 grade stainless steel and titanium to provide corrosion resistance.

Teralba Industries manufactures these heat exchangers using local and imported components, and has a huge range of inventory held in stock ready to assemble to your requirements. This allows Teralba to offer plate heat exchangers to the Australian & New Zealand markets, with competitive pricing, short lead times and efficient after sales service. These products complemented with the Teralba tube heat exchange range offers the industry endless combinations for solutions to heat transfer duties.

Accu-therm Plate Heat Exchangers come Gasketed or Brazed

How it works...

Accu-therm Plate Heat Exchangers consist of a number of corrugated plates with gaskets placed in grooves along the edge. The adjacent plates come into contact with each other where the ridges meet. Plates are clamped together to form counter-current flow paths. By combining various style plates and flow arrangements, the ultimate efficiency can be attained.
