WCR Heat Exchangers
WCR Plate Heat Exchangers


Plate heat exchangers are the most economical and efficient type of heat exchanger on the market, with their low cost, flexibility, easy maintenance, and high thermal efficiency. WCR plate heat exchanger corrugations are designed to achieve turbulence across the entire heat transfer area in order to get the highest possible heat transfer coefficients with the lowest possible pressure drop and allow for close temperature approaches.

Consequently this means smaller heat transfer area, smaller heat exchangers and sometimes even fewer heat exchangers benefitting customers with less space requirements, reduced secondary flow rates and smaller pumps.

Click Here to Request a Quote or More Information WCR plate heat exchangers consist of a number of gasketed plates which are fixed between a top carrying bar and a lower guide bar. The plates are compressed by means of tie bolts between a stationary frame part (the head) and a moveable frame part (the follower) Fluids enter the plate heat exchanger through frame connections and are distributed to plates. The flow to alternate passages between the plates is controlled by alternating the placement of gaskets. These are available in single and multi-pass units, depending upon the application.

WCR Heat Exchangers Plate Heat Exchangers: Efficiency and Flexibility

Easy to Remove and Clean
The user simply removes the tie bolts and slides back the movable frame part. Now the plate pack can be inspected, pressure cleaned, or removed for refurbishment if required.

Expandable
A very significant feature of the plate heat exchanger is that it is expandable. Increasing your heat transfer requirements means simply adding plates instead of buying a new heat exchanger, saving time and money.

High Efficiency
Because of the pressed patterns in the plates and the relative narrow gaps, very high turbulence is achieved at relative low fluid velocity. This combined with counter directional flow results in very high heat transfer coefficients.

Compact Size
As a result of the high efficiency, less heat transfer area is required, resulting in a much smaller heat exchanger than would be needed for the same duty using other types of heat exchangers. Typically a plate heat exchanger requires between 20-40% of the space required by a tube & shell heat exchanger.

Close Approach Temperature
The same features that give the plate heat exchanger its high efficiency also makes it possible to reach close approach temperatures which is particularly important in heat recovery and regeneration applications. Approach temperatures of 1°F are possible.

Multiple Duties in a Single Unit
Plate heat exchangers can be built in sections, separated with simple divider plates or more complicated divider frames with additional connections. This makes it possible to heat, regenerate, and cool a fluid in one heat exchanger or heat or cool multiple fluids with the same cooling or heating source.

Avoid Cross Contamination
Each medium is individually gasketed and as the space between the gaskets is vented to the atmosphere, cross contamination of fluids is eliminated.

Less Fouling
Very high turbulence is achieved as a result of the pattern of the plates, the many contact points, and the narrow gap between the plates. This combined with the smooth plate surface reduces fouling considerably compared to other types of heat exchangers. Click Here to Request a Quote or More Information

Lower Costs
High heat transfer coefficients mean less heat transfer area and smaller heat exchangers, and sometimes even less heat exchangers. This and less space requirements, reduced flow rates, and smaller pumps means.

WCR Brazed Exchangers
WCR Brazed Heat Exchangers


Plate Arrangement
Standard plate arrangement forms two independent circuits running in alternate layers. The two fluids will flow in opposite directions (counter flow) to further enhance the exchange of heat. Specially-designed corrugated plates are used to increase the heat transfer coefficient and lower potential fouling.

Brazed Construction
Brazed heat exchangers are brazed in a vacuum furnace and helium pressure tested to insure leak-free performance.

Two Compressor Technology
With the WCR 2C Series, Two compressor design has two independent refrigerant circuits, one on the left side and one on the right front side of the unit. The fluid side connections are on the reverse side, for easier access and chiller design.
Click Here to Request a Quote or More Information
The 2C Series brazed heat exchanger is based on the principal of having two refrigerants "interlaced" or alternating between the fluid circuits, thus allowing full 100% refrigerant contact with the fluid side. So, when only one compressor operates, 100% of the fluid is being chilled (evaporator mode) or heated (condenser mode).

WCR Brazed Exchangers Brazed Heat Exchanger Advantages:

High Efficiency
The embossed pattern of the heat transfer plates promotes high turbulence at low fluid velocities. The high turbulence results in very high heat transfer coefficients.

Compact Size
The WCR brazed heat exchanger can be anywhere from 50% to 80% smaller than other types of heat exchangers. It requires less floor space due to the high thermal efficiency of the stainless steel. The plates are brazed together at high temperatures, allowing the heat exchanger to be compact, leak tight, and rugged.

Close Approach Temperatures
Click Here to Request a Quote or More Information Close-approach temperatures of 1-2°F (0.5-1.0°C) are possible because of true counter flow and high heat transfer efficiency of the plates. This is an important factor in regeneration and heat recovery processes.

High Temperature and Pressure Ratings
Maximum working pressures from 300 psi to 650 psi, and temperature ratings of 350°F.
