The primary purpose of a heat exchanger is to transfer one liquid’s thermal energy to another without touching or mixing them. Thermal energy passes through the exchanger plates transferring the heat between the fluids. This keeps the two liquids unchanged, but allows their temperature to change.
EMP Heat Exchangers circulate fluids through alternating cavities that are separated by corrugated stainless steel plates. The fluids are alternated so that hot fluid is surrounded by cold fluid throughout its entire passage in the exchanger. This facilitates the transfer of heat and greatly increases the speed of the temperature change.
