Check out these great Flat Plate Heat Exchanger/Chiller units! They're made from 316 stainless steel and copper plates, are copper brazed, and are available in either a 20 or 30 stainless steel plate design. They feature 1/2" NPT female coolant ports and has 1/2" NPT female fuel/beer ports as well.
How Flat Plate Heat Exchangers Work
In the case of heating oil, coolant from the engine heats up the metal plates which then transfer that heat to the fuel which passes on the other side of the heated plates. This allows you to use the natural heat from the engine to heat your Biodiesel, vegetable oil, waste motor oil, or even diesel fuel up to a nice toasty warm temperature which has the effect if "thinning out" the fuel which makes it easier for the fuel injection pump to handle and makes for a more complete combustion in the engine! Most diesel engines have a normal coolant operating range of about 180° to 210° F, which happens to be a temperature for thinning WVO for proper combustion.
Using flat plate heat exchangers in an SVO (Straight Vegetable Oil) conversion has been pretty much been a standard practice for several years which makes these flat plate heat exchangers an ideal candidate for any SVO conversion!
Flat Plate Heat Exchangers can also be used as condensors to collect recovered methanol when boiled out of glycerin properly. As cool water is passed through the exchanger and methanol vapors go through the other side, the vapors are chilled and methanol recondenses.
In the case of a beer wort cooler, cooled water is passed through the coolant side of the heat exchanger while beer is pumped through the other side allowing for a "chilling" of the beer with extreme efficiency; especially given that there are so many plates to transfer cooling within this design.
Need to heat or cool even faster? Just attach two of our flat plate heat exchangers together and you'll be able to double the speed of the heating or cooling fast!
So, if you're looking to heat up your vegetable oil, Biodiesel, or waste motor oil, or need a chiller for your beer brewing, buy our Flat Plate Heat Exchanger today & you'll be heating or cooling in short order!
These heat exchangers can also be used for several other uses such as:
