The Sondex "Sonder Flex Series" has been specifically designed to provide improved efficiency compared to existing plate heat exchangers and to reduce the overall operating costs. Sondex is a global company specializing in the design, manufacture and sale of plate heat exchangers.
Plate Design, the inlet section:
Is designed to achieve a perfect distribution of the product over the entire heat transfer surface. This is done by enlarging the port inlet and provide the inlet with lead grooves which also guarantee no “dead spots” on the plate. The multi-level inlet design secures rigid plate inlet with a minimum of contact points which form line contact. The inlet parts are designed with leak detecting groove meeting 3A specifications.
The Sondex “Sonder Flex Series” has a minimum of tightening bolts making an even pressure over the whole frame area. This ensures a long lifetime for plates as well as for gaskets. There are various types of frames: Solid stainless steel, steel frames cladded with stainless steel or painted steel. The frames are built up in modules so the heat exchanger can be rebuilt if production has changed or if the frame is to be used for other purposes. Adjustable legs are standard for all stainless steel units.
The frames can be delivered with intermediate frames dividing the plate heat exchanger into various sections where preheating, pasteurization and cooling can take place.
