High Efficiency Heat Transfer

The embossed pattern of the Mueller
Accu-Therm heat transfer plates
promotes high turbulence at low fluid
velocities. The high turbulence results
in very high heat transfer coefficients.
"U" values of 1,500 and greater are common.
@ @ Reduced Fouling
The Accu-Therm plate heat exchanger's high turbulence, uniform fluid flow, and smooth plate surface reduce fouling and the need for frequent cleaning.

Compact Size
Because of the high thermal efficiency
and high surface density, the plate heat
exchanger requires 1/5 to 1/2 less floor
space than other types of equivalent-duty
heat transfer equipments. One can also
service and maintain the plate heat
exchanger in the same area it occupies
when in operation.
@ @ Easy to Inspect and Clean
By simply removing the compression bolts and sliding away the movable end frame, one can visually inspect every square inch of the plate heat transfer surface. The unit also lends itself to easy and economical clean-in- place (CIP) procedures due to the amount of retained liquid being very low.

True Counter Flow
In the plate heat exchanger, fluids flow in opposite directions, resulting in greater effective temperature differences. This reduces the amount of heat transfer surface required.
@ @ Close-Approach Temperatures
An important factor in regeneration and heat recovery
applications is the approach
temperatures of the heat transfer
media. In the AccuTherm, very
close approach temperatures of
1-2 F ( 0.5-1.00 C ) are possible because of the true ounter flow and high heat transfer efficiency of the plates.

Multiple Duties With a Single Unit
It is possible to heat or cool twoor
more fluids within the same unit
by simply installing intermediate
divider sections
@ @ Lower Cost
Plate heat exchangers are generally more economical than other types of equivalent-duty heat exchangers due to the higher thermal efficiency and lower manufacturing costs of plate heat exchangers.
@ @ @ @
@ @ @ @
The plate heat exchanger is lighter in total weight than other types of heat exchangers because of reduced liquid volume and smaller surface area for a given application.
@ @ Expandable
The expandable feature of the
plate heat exchanger protects
your investment. Should your
heat transfer requirements
change, your plate heat exchanger will not become obsolete. Instead, you can adjust the unit's thermal performance by releasing the compression bolts, rolling back the end frame, and adding or removing heat transfer plates.

High Viscosity Applications
Since the plate heat exchanger induces turbulence at low fluid velocities, it gains in practical application possibilities with high viscosity fluids.
@ @ Cross Contamination Eliminated
In the plate heat exchanger, each
medium is gasketed individually
gasketed. The space between
gaskets is vented to atmosphere,
eliminating the possibility of any
cross contamination of fluids.
This feature makes the plate heat exchanger especially
ideal for applications where product contamination cannot
be tolerated.
