If your facility operates gasketed plate-and-frame heat exchangers then you should consider including a regular maintenance and cleaning schedule in your operating budget. The two main benefits of a clean plate heat exchanger are:
- Reduced downtime.
- Decreased energy consumption and reduced energy costs.
