Developing Corrosion-Resistant Joints Applied in the Plate Heat Exchanger
The manufacturing of plate heat exchangers is much more difficult than that of making traditional heat exchangers. The demand of increased corrosion resistance, avoiding Cu ion contamination, resisting to high-temperature resulting from various applied environments makes the traditional Cu brazed 316 stainless steel (316SS) plate heat exchanger fail to satisfy certain applications. Corrosion-resistant brazed 316SS plate heat exchangers are successfully developed using two commercially available Ni-based brazing foils, and they are valuable for industrial applications.
