The plate-fin heat exchanger has been applied more and more in various industrial sectors
due to its superior performance and mature technology.
1. Air separation equipment: plate-fin heat exchanger can save equipment investment and installation costs and reduce unit energy consumption after the main heat exchanger, subcooler, condenser evaporator and other low-temperature heat exchangers of air separation equipment are used.
2. Petrochemical industry: plate-fin heat exchanger has the advantages of large processing capacity, good separation effect and low energy consumption. It has been used in ethylene cryogenic separation, synthetic ammonia nitrogen washing, natural gas, oil field gas separation and liquefaction and other processes.
3. Construction machinery: After more than 20 years of research and practice, many countries in the world have produced and used plate-fin heat exchangers in batches on automobiles, locomotive radiators, digging oil coolers, refrigerator radiators, and high-power transformer radiators
4. Superconductivity and space technology: The development of low-temperature superconductivity and space technology has provided a new way for the application of plate-fin heat exchangers, which have been used in the Apollo spacecraft of the United States and the Shenzhou spacecraft of China.
