APK Gasketed Plate Heat Exchangers


Arbe Integrated Engineering offer a range of heat exchangers for various applications in various forms. Our APK range of plate heat exchangers offer the perfect heat transfer solution giving optimum performance and high quality products. High performance plate heat exchangers consist of a number of formed, sealable heat exchanger plates. The alternating pressed plate sequence cause highly turbulent flow behaviour, optimal self-cleaning effect and high heat transfer. We have many years experience in the design and supply of heat exchangers, as stand-alone items or as a packaged unit supplied with integral equipment and controls, such as pumps, control valves and factory wired control panels.

Our complete expertise in the industry guarantees that our products will fulfill your requirements with our design excellence and high quality products.


Primary Heat Sources
We have products to suit every primary heating medium including:
LTHW / LPHW – Primary circuits with a maximum temperature of 85-90°C
MTHW – Primary circuits with a maximum temperature of 120°C
HTHW – Primary circuits with a water temperature above 150°C
Steam – To suit steam pressures up to 20 BarG (requiring specialised controls by Arbe)
Condensate – Condensate drains from other steam equipment can be used to preheat water and also can cool condensate down to workable levels
Waste Heat – Heat from processes such as CHP or flue gases can be utilised to heat domestic water, either as a preheat or if the heat load and temperatures are sufficient, as the primary heat source
Solar  – Heat from solar thermal panels, from either secondary or primary fed circuits


Secondary Heat Mediums
DHW – Secondary circuits with a maximum temperature of 65°C, suitable for potable water systems. Higher temperatures would not be recommended in potable water systems unless for process applications such as wash down
LTHW / LPHW – Primary circuits with a maximum temperature of 85-90°C
MTHW – Primary circuits with a maximum temperature of 120°C


Our plate heat exchangers can be supplied with either insulation boxes or flexible jackets. 


Our standard range of plate heat exchangers are designed and manufactured to the latest standards and are fully compliant with the Pressure Equipment Directive.

The Arbe APK plate heat exchanger plate packs are made up of a set of stainless steel plates. The number and type of plates is defined during the sizing phase according the to the heat exchanger requirements requested by the customer. The plates have gaskets attached which are clipped on (no glue required in our heat exchangers, with the exception of the first plate). Gaskets are available from 3 different types of materials, EPDM (Standard), Nitrile NBR or Viton and each is selected dependant on the application. The heat exchanger plates can be from stainless steel AISI 304, stainless steel AISI 316L or Titanium, dependant on the application. The frames are manufactured from epoxy coated steel with bolts and tie bars lengths to suit the frame size.

The Arbe APK insulation jackets are available in 2 options - removable flexible jacket and fixed insulation box, depending on the application

The Arbe APK plate heat exchangers can be supplied with various optional extras such as feet, drip trays and ancillaries such as gauges and isolating valves etc, or can be supplied as a package. Please contact us if you have any queries or problems

Arbe recently completed installation of a complete heat recovery system for a food factory. The remit was to design a hot water system that would recover heat from cold room refrigeration units which would be used to preheat water in a calorifier and thus reduce power usage on the refrigeration unit as the cooling fans would not need to be used
