Plate type Oil Cooler

The plate cooler is a new type of high-efficiency heat exchanger equipment with high heat transfer efficiency, low heat loss and compact structure. The main component is a stack of metal sheets with a certain corrugated shape. Excellent performance due to long service life. Plate coolers are widely used in the fields of chemistry, food, machinery, and medicine.


1, Pay attention to the use of environmental cleaning 

 The plate cooler should not be in a dirty or prone to scale environment, and the operating temperature should be controlled at around 50 °C. If the non-softened cooling water is used as the cooling medium, the plate cooler should be periodically cleaned or washed.

2. Deal with the leakage of the cooler in time

If the plate cooler leaks, find the leak location in time, reassemble or replace the gasket and plate.

3. The connecting pipe of the cooler should be properly treated.

The connecting pipe of the plate cooler should be equipped with a 90° elbow, which can avoid the weight of the pipe and the force of thermal expansion and contraction acting directly on the connecting flange.

4. Remove the sewage from the connecting pipe before starting the machine.

Before starting the machine, open the drain valve to remove the accumulated water and debris in the pipeline to prevent water hammer or dirt.

5. Install a thermometer or pressure gauge at the connection nozzle.

When heated with steam, the temperature of the condensate should be only slightly lower than the steam temperature (calculated as saturation). If the drop is too large, there is water in the device, which will significantly reduce its heat transfer performance. The heat exchanger should be equipped with a good steam condensate removal device.
