The Alfa Laval MEP desalination process consists of a series of evaporation and condensation chambers known as effects. Each effect is fitted with heat transfer surfaces based on patented Alfa Laval plates. In the plate channels of an effect, the seawater on one side is heated up and partially evaporated to distillate vapour, which is used in the next effect; on the other side, the distillate vapour from the previous effect is condensed, giving up its latent heat
Conversion of seawater through Multi-Effect Distillation for production of high purity water for domestic and industrial use. Applicable on Cruise Liners, Oil & Gas Industry, Power Plants, Industries and domestic water production. Features Simple design Enhanced performance by means of plate type evaporator/condenser
Which Heat Exchanger Is Best? The Three Main Types In general, gasketed plate heat exchangers are preferred in industrial settings where flexibility is paramount. Welded plate heat exchangers are rare due to the increased cost, but brazed plate heat exchangers are common in HVAC settings where replacement is easier than maintenance. Dimple Plate/Plate Coil Heat Exchanger
A plate heat exchanger (PHE) comprises a pack of spaced corrugated plates arranged such that the two heat exchanging fluids flow through alternate spaces in the pack. The corrugations maintain the gap between adjacent plates which are sealed against each other. These are nowadays several different technologies to effect a seal between the plates and to maintain the pack in a compressed state.Images

Effect of End Plates on Heat Transfer of Plate Heat Frame and plate heat exchanger (FPHE) is commonly used for their ease of cleaning, simple adjustment of heat transfer area, compactness and excellent thermal-hydraulic performance. It essentially consists of multiple thin metal plates that are stamped with a wavy chevron or herringbone pattern.
