Plate Heat Exchanger - Semi-Welded PHE

SONDEX Semi-Welded Plates are built up in cassettes comprising two plates welded together by laser welding. The benefit of this construction is that on one side there is a welded plate channel and on the other a conventional plate channel with gaskets, making assembly and cleaning of the second side easier. On the welded side there is the benefit of two specially produced corner hole gaskets, that creates the tightening between the two cassettes, thus reducing the gasket to a minimum on the welded side.
