Dimple-T cools cleaner
Dimple-t has adopted a new technology for the
manifolding of the plates. It uses the slot manifold. This slot
manifold has many advantages.
Lower water side pressure drop
slots are creating a wide opening for the cooling water to flow into
the heat exchanger plate. This results in a lower water side pressure
Better plate support
feature is that this construction eliminates the need for plate
supports since the platebank is "hanging in the casing". This makes
that the platebank is not sensitive to expansion of the casing.
competition is still using flexible hoses to overcome this expansion
problem but this solution is creating other unwanted problems. Such as
supports below the platebank. An enormous amount of openings in the
casing (2 per heat exchanger plate!!) are required and these require
proper sealing. Many full width plate spacers are required to keep the
plates channels on the correct distance. Without these plate spacers
the flow channels would be unequal and could result in immediate
blockage. All of these unwanted details are area's where product can
stay behind. Even doors are usually only required because of the
frequently required cleaning.
The good news
is: all of these items are not required with the Dimple-t Solids Cooler
because we have made some elimentary design changes.
