The Plateflow line of plate and frame heat exchangers offered by Standard Xchange provides a higher surface area to volume ratio than typical shell and tube units, meaning Plateflow exchangers accomplish more heat transfer in less space.

The turbulent flow of fluids over the corrugated plates inside of a plate and frame heat exchanger creates a higher overall thermal transfer coefficient (U-value) than is found in other heat exchanger styles, resulting in less surface area needed to perform the required duty. This thermal efficiency often makes plate and frame heat exchangers the most economical choice for a number of applications, especially those requiring high alloys or special metals. Plateflow units are available in a variety of designs, materials, and code constructions to meet any heat transfer needs.
