Inspection of PHE
- Frame Inspection for rusting, Foundation etc.
- Inspection of PHE for Side Leakages, Misalignment in Honeycomb Pattern etc.
Identify & Inspect Plates
- Once plates arrive for refurbishment they are identified and logged.
- All gaskets are then carefully removed from the plates.
Dismantling of PHE
- Carefully dismantling PHE, without damaging the threading of studs & affecting rollers.
- Inspection of Frame Plate (Front Plate) & Pressure Plate (Back Plate) for any damage
- Inspection of stainless Steel Liners at Inlet & Outlet of the PHE Frame
- Testing the soil on the Plate
- Identifying The suitable descaling solution
- Plate soaking in descaling solution bath
- Cleaning with soap solution
- Plates are chemically cleaned.
Rinsing & Drying
- Rinsing the Plates
- Cleaning the Plates with high pressure jet wash
- Drying the Plates
- Frames are washed properly, Frame Plate (Front Plate) & Pressure Plate (Back Plate).
- Inner sides of the frames Frame Plate (Front Plate) & Pressure Plate (Back Plate) are cleaned.
Visual Inspection & Die Penetration Testing
- Inspection of each heat Transfer plate visually for any cracks, dent marks, pin holes
- Application of red die penetrant on one side of the heat transfer plate
- Application of white developer on the another side
- DP testing is most proved method of identifying cracks & Pin holes
- Marking the pin holes found on the HT Plates with marker
- Rinsing the plates with water
Gasket - Plate Assembly & Plate Pack
- After Inspection & identification of rejected HT Plates, Acceptable plates are taken for re-gasketing.
- Following inspection, new gaskets are clipped or bonded to the refurbished plates.
- Appropriate adhesives are used where required.
- All plates are clamped to ensure correct alignment.
- Plates are arranged as per Flow pass arrangement ensuring Honey Comb Pattern
- Complete pack of all the plates as per design is prepared ensuring all channel flow, passes & Honey comb pattern.
Light Box Testing
- Testing the HT Plates in dark room with a UV light on another side of the Plate
- This visualizes smallest pin hole or crack.
- Light box testing is cost effective method of identifying damaged HT Plates.
Assembly of PHE
- Plate Pack is inserted between Frame Plate (Front Plate) & Pressure Plate (Back Plate)
- Tightening of Studs is been carried out carefully ensuring cross tightening.
- Pack length of PHE is been maintained.
Hydrostatic Testing of PHE
- After Assembly of PHE, again visual Inspection is done for ensuring fitment
- PHE has been performed pressure-leak test before taking for operation.
- In case of hydrostatic test, Pressurize hot and cold side independently and/or both sides at the same time.
- Actual test pressure shall not exceed the specified test pressure.
- Over test pressure could result in heat transfer plate/frame deformation and/or leaking.
- The test pressure is referred to Plate Arrangement Drawing.
Inspection Report & PHE Handover
- After successful Hydrostatic testing of PHE, Inspection report is prepared for all the activities carried out & replacement of spares, rejection of plates etc.
- Inspection report & PHE testing approval is taken from customer before handover of PHE
- After confirmation & satisfaction, PHE is handed over to customer.
