Plate heat exchangers are used for plant extracts, water for injection WFI, etc.
For this purpose, the gaskets forming part of these exchangers are specially designed to be efficient regarding thermal temperature and to be able to withstand, alongside the exchangers, losses of very low loads. Normally, fluids circulating through them are viscous and have ultra-vacuum condensation properties.
Also, they are easy to clean and maintain, as well as being compact and self-emptying circuits. They can be installed horizontally or vertically
