Click number:- Release time:2020-04-11

The quality of the core parts of the plate heat exchanger plates and rubber gasket is related to the stability of the plate heat exchanger, and therefore to the stability of the entire manufacturing and application.

Depending on the medium used, the choice ofgasket material for plate heat exchangers varies. Only by clarifying the applicable range of various rubbergasket materials can the correct heat exchanger be selected, thereby improving the heat exchange efficiency and production efficiency.

The following picture systematically shows the material and application range of the plate heat exchanger rubbergasket:


material and characteristics Main scope of application Restricted scope
NBR Temperature: -15 ~ 115 (short time 135) ° C Sulfuric acid, nitric acid or strong oxidizing substances; acetone; light to moderate swelling in synthetic lubricants and ozone

polymer: an acrylonitrile-butadiene medium: water and aqueous solution; fat; vegetable oil; mineral oil (chain hydrocarbon); refrigerant containing alkylbenzene; compressor lubricating oil containing cycloalkyl glycol ; Ethanol; Ethylene glycol
HT NBR Temperature: -15 ~ 140 (short time 150) ° C Same as NBR

polymer: an acrylonitrile-butadiene special medium: same as NBR

peroxide curing
HYD NBR Temperature: -15 ~ 160 (short time 165) ?

polymer: same as HTNBR Medium: Same as NBR
water and aqueous solution; fat; vegetable oil; mineral oil; can also be used in some special working conditions such as crude oil and amine
hydrogenation treatment
EPDM Temperature: -35 ~ 150 short time 160) ° C or Fat: hydrocarbon

-25 ~ 180 ?
Polymer: EPDM copolymer special
solvent; liquid containing a small amount of mineral oil (such as compressor oil for refrigeration)

medium: high temperature hot water and steam; various chemicals; alkali such as NaOH; weak acid
industrial with peroxides

RES EPDM Temperature: -35 ~ 160 (short time 165) ?; Same as EPDM

when the pressure is very low, can be specially made at -44 ? rubber
polymer: EPDM copolymer

medium: general high temperature chemicals and steam
resin thinning
Food EPDM Temperature: -35 ~ 145 (short time 150) ? When the Same as EPDM

pressure is very low, the rubber
polymer: EPDM copolymer

medium specially made at -44 ? : enoic acid, alkali, steam and hot water;
FDA grade, peroxide cured

for adhesive strips, it can also be used for small amounts of animal fat fluid
Chlorine-resistant EPDM rubber Temperature: -35 ~ 145 (short time 150) ° C Same as EPDM

polymer: special EPDM copolymer chlorine-resistant EPDM medium: high temperature hot water and steam; various chemicals
FPM Temperature: -35 ~ 180 (short time 200) ° C Same as EPDM

medium: high concentration of inorganic acid (oxidizing acid, etc.); hot water and steam; high temperature mineral oil
polymer: hexafluoropolypropylene, vinylidene fluoride and tetrafluoroethylene terpolymer

peroxide vulcanization
Food FPM Temperature: -5 ~ 170 (short time 180) ? NaOH

polymer: hexafluoropolypropylene, vinylidene fluoride and tetrafluoroethylene terpolymer Medium: various organic solvents and chemicals; sulfuric acid; high temperature vegetable oil
B70 FPM Temperature: -20 ~ 170 (short time 180) ° C NaOH: Aqueous fluids with a temperature above 150 ° C

polymer: hexafluoropolypropylene, vinylidene fluoride and tetrafluoroethylene terpolymer Medium: Viton rubber, chemical resistance is similar to Viton B, but the low temperature sealing performance is better. It is specially used to cool to below room temperature, and the heat exchange fluid is erosive to the cheaper rubber. can be reduced by one stage up to the sealing pressure
Heoprene Temperature: -35 ~ 70 (short time 80) ° C or -40 ~ 125 ° C Used with stainless steel plates to process hot water or hot water solutions; aromatic hydrocarbons or most fuel oils

polymer: PVC-chloroprene medium: widely used in ammonia (R717) and various fluorine-containing refrigerants; can also be used in other new refrigerant mixtures, but must be special Pay attention to its compatibility with these mixtures and lubricants; linear solvent; can be used in conjunction with Ti plates for solutions containing active chlorine, its oxidation resistance is better than other rubbers

zinc oxide vulcanization
Butyl rubber Temperature: -35 ~ 125 ° C Straight-chain or aromatic hydrocarbon solution; vegetable oil and mineral oil have actually been replaced by EPDM

polymer: copolymerization of isobutylene-isoprene and phenolic resin cross-linked Medium: various organic substances and general solvents; certain concentrations of inorganic acids and strong bases; high temperature aqueous solution. Typical uses include high concentrations of NaOH and certain concentrations of sulfuric acid, nitric acid, etc.

Silicone rubber Temperature: -50 ~ 175 ? Nitric acid: some organic solvents; high-pressure steam; synthetic lubricating oil; ozone. In gasoline, it will swell significantly

polymer: methyl - vinylsiloxane medium: suitable for general high temperature and low temperature medium; also has certain corrosion resistance to some corrosive media (such as sodium hypochlorite solution, etc.); the price is higher

peroxide curing
Expanded graphite hot sheet Temperature: ≤500 ? High temperature (above 150 ° C), high concentration of acids (such as sulfuric acid, nitric acid, etc.)

material: pure expanded graphite bonded with 316 stainless steel mesh core Medium : High humidity, corrosion-resistant chemicals and other fluids; heat resistance and chemical resistance are very good, and will not be spoiled
Pressed asbestos fiber strip Temperature: -40 ~ 260 ? The surface of the sulfuric acid rubber strip needs to be coated with a viscosity reducing agent. Because the required clamping force of the plate is very large, it is generally not used

material: pressed asbestos fiber and natural rubber are bonded together Medium: high temperature, corrosive chemicals and other fluids (such as chlorine-containing carbon oxides and organic solvents such as benzene and aromatic hydrocarbons)

Through this picture, everyone should have a comprehensive understanding of the choice of plate heat exchanger rubber gasket, and hope to help everyone in the future use and use.
