Plate & Shell Heat Exchangers for Every Application
Our product range contains nine different plate sizes, which means there’s a suitable plate size for every application. Thanks to our advanced manufacturing techniques, we can provide plates of different thicknesses to meet customer needs. The material of the plate is also chosen individually for every application. After pressing and cutting, the plates are welded together, with the gaps between the plates functioning as channels for hot and cold heat circulation. The plate pack is then installed in a cylindrical shell. Hot and cold circulations run in opposite directions on each side of the plates, and each gap has alternately a ‘plate side’ circulation and a ‘shell side’ circulation. The circulation is directed into the pack of plates and out through combination pipes.

In this special issue, we focus on heat recovery and energy saving – in particular heat pumps. Because of the urgent need to solve global warming and the current energy crisis, totally new technical solutions need to be developed.
Vahterus’ LNG journey began in 2005. Through extensive R&D work and with over 300 heat exchangers delivered to cryogenic LNG applications, we’re now leaders in the field. In this special issue, we introduce our work in LNG applications.
In this issue, we discuss how global challenges drive innovation. We study novel biotech concepts at the largest ethanol plant in Europe and ask Dave Rule, President of IIAR, what he foresees for the future of refrigeration.
