Replacement Parts

By keeping nearly 20,000 of the most common plate types in stock at all times we are able to offer immediate delivery on most plate requests.

 

plates

 

Our inventory consists of the 40 most commonly used APV, ALFA LAVAL and Tranter models.  The majority of these are manufactured in our own plate pressing facility in Ohio.

We also keep a small stock of new and refurbished plates for Mueller, Chester Jensen, ITT, and API.

Gaskets

By keeping nearly 200,000 of the most common gasket types in stock at all times we are able to offer immediate delivery on most gasket requests.

 

gaskets

 

Our inventory consists of approximately 300 different variations of gaskets in different rubber materials. In NBR and EPDM we carry all APV, Tranter and ALFA LAVAL gaskets in inventory.

Elastomers such as Viton, HNBR and Butyl are kept in stock for a small number of models, but are mostly manufactured to order.

For a selected number of models we also keep stock of NBR and EPDM gaskets for Mueller, Chester Jensen, ITT, API, and Vicarb Plates.

Rubber Materials

Brief information concerning

Rubber Materials in General
Heat Exchanger Ontario rubber materials

 

rubber materials

 

Rubber materials are blends of additives. Each rubber material is unique. In some cases the materials from different suppliers
are very similar, and in other cases they are not.

The most important ingredient is the POLYMER, which may be from 15 to 70% (usually around 50%) by weight of the rubber
material.

 

A typical formulation may look like:
          POLYMER 50%
          Fillers 40%
          Softener 5%
          Activators 2%
          Curative 1%
          Accelerators 1%
          Antioxidant 1%

 

rubber materials

 

All additives (type and concentration) effect the properties of the rubber material, thus influencing the final properties of the end product.

A rubber material developed for a certain product is seldom useful in other applications. For technically more advanced products there are always specially developed materials to fulfill the specific demand.

 

Heat Exchanger Ontario Rubber materials are specifically

Designed for PHE applications.

 

Polymer types
Nature Rubber (NR) is the only commercially used non-synthetic polymer type. Main applications are for dynamic and abrasive environments. Typical markets are automotive and mining industries.

The synthetic polymers are manufactured to achieve special properties that Natural Rubber does not have. Examples for such properties are resistance to oils and special chemicals, high temperature and weather (ozone, UV-light).

The standard rubber polymer for weather resistance or water/steam resistance is EPDM (Ethylene-Propylene Rubber), while Nitrile rubber (NBR) is the standard rubber polymer for oil resistance.

 

Some other examples of polymer types are:
       Chlorinated Polyethylene (CM)
       Acrylic Rubber (ACM)
       Polysulphide Rubber (T)
       Polyurethane Rubber (AU<EU)
       Polynorbornene (PNR)
       Polypropylene (PO)
       Fluorocarbon Rubber (FKM)
       Perfluoroelastomer (FFKM)
            and a lot more...

 

The curing/vulcanization of rubber is a chemical reaction, where the curatives will alter the polymer being a high viscous liquid to be a solid, thus giving the material its elasticity.

 

Heat Exchanger Ontario works with the worlds leading suppliers of raw rubber materials.

 

 

Gasket Materials

For plate heat exchangers the standard materials are EPDM and Nitrile rubber (NBR). EPDM is used normally for non-fatty/oily applications, and NBR for oil/fat applications. But there are no rules without exceptions. An "oil", and fatty application may have a low fat content, making the application more suitable for EPDM instead of NBR.
