Energy Efficient PHE from HRS Process Systems
15 February 2019

HRS Process Systems Ltd. is a heat transfer technology provider to a range of process sectors across India, and has exclusive rights for design, manufacturing, supply and service of Plate Heat Exchangers (PHEs) in collaboration with FUNKE Warmeaustauscher Gmbh of Germany, a company focused on PHEs. HRS FUNKE PHEs are available in the following variants:

Gasketed plate heat exchanger: It is the most widely used variant of PHE, consisting of a set of embossed plates fitted adjoining each other – each plate separated by a gasket. It is used for applications such as most oils and water. The gasket ensures that the flow gaps are sealed from the outside and from the second medium involved in the heat exchange. Also, for different compositions and corrosive properties, the best fit materials of construction of plates and gaskets are used.

Brazed plate heat exchanger: It consists of embossed plates fitting into one another and vacuum-brazed with copper, nickel or stainless steel to form a compact and pressure-proof unit. It is designed for applications like lube oil cooling, and condensing in refrigeration plants.

Cladded plate heat exchanger: It is an in-house design where the fixed plate and pressure plates are cladded with stainless steel or similar materials to make the outer surfaces compatible with the process and utility fluids. This is eff ective in food, dairy, brewery and similar hygienic applications.


Thermodynamically optimized designs make HRS FUNKE PHEs suitable for the heat transfer industry. They require lower investment and have lower operation and maintenance costs. They have selfcleaning quality due to highly turbulent flow behaviour. They can also be used for small temperature differences up to 1°C. HRS PSL has extensive service support network all across India. It is part of the UK-based HRS group of companies, which is a leader in innovative thermal process technologies, with a network spanning the UK, Spain, the USA, India, Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia.
