Welcome to American Plate Exchanger
American Plate Exchanger (APE) - Supplying a low
cost plate heat exchanger alternative to manufacturers’ such as Alfa
Laval, API, APV, Armstrong, Bell and Gossett, Fischer, GEA, ITT, Schmidt
Bretton, Swep, Taco, Tranter, Vicarb and Xylem. Great quality and
decades of experience. Stock in the USA and Vietnam for quick delivery
and low price.
We specialize in combining low price and quality in the manufacturing
of plate & frame and braze plate heat exchangers. With facilities in New York, USA & Saigon, Vietnam we want to be your global supplier.
Specializing in OEM applications as well as serving many end users, we
have the engineering, experience, and resources desired in supplying
heat exchanger equipment.
Channels are formed between the plates and the corner ports are
arranged so that the two media flow through alternate channels. The heat
is transferred through the plate between the channels, and complete
counter-current flow is created for the highest possible efficiency. The
corrugation of the plates provides the passage between the plates,
supports each plate against the adjacent one and enhances the
turbulence, resulting in efficient heat transfer.
Frame plate: Carbon steel / Stainless
Nozzles: Carbon steel / Stainless
Metal lined: Stainless steel, Titanium
Rubber lined: Nitrile, EPDM
Plates: Stainless steel 316 L / 304 / Ti
Particulars required for quotation include the following:
- Flow rates of heat load required
- Temperature program
- Physical properties of liquids in question
- Desired working pressure
- Maximum permitted pressure drop

Plate Heat Exchangers
The heating surface consists of thin corrugated metal plates stacked
on top of each other. Channels are formed between the plates and the
corner ports are arranged so that the two media flow through alternate
channels, always in counter-current flow. The media are kept in the unit
by a brazed seal around the edge of the plates. The contact points of
the plates are also brazed to withstand the pressure of the media
The plate pack is covered by cover plates. Connections are located in
the front or rear cover plate. The channel plates are corrugated to
improve heat transfer efficiency and to make them rigid.
Cover plates: Stainless steel AISI 316 / AISI 304
Connections: Stainless AISI 316 /AISI 304
Plates: Stainless steel AISI 316 / AISI 304
Advantages of BHE
- The high heat transfer efficiency of the BHE makes it extremely
compact and also easy to install in places where space is limited.
- The unit has no gasket and is therefore suitable in applications
were temperature and/or pressure is high e.g. in district heating.
- The supply system reassures that, no matter where you are on the
globe, the BHE units are available with a short delivery time.
- Heating and hot water production
- Radiant floor heating
- Snow melting equipment
- Refrigerant evaporators
- Sub-coolers and condensers
- Oil coolers plus many other refrigerant-to-liquid,
liquid-to-liquid and air-to-liquid applications.
