Years of experience have inspired innovative upgrades to create the ultimate in Fishbone plate design. The tried-and-true Fishbone plate pattern is featured in most SONDEX® plate heat exchangers.
What does that mean for you?
Engineered to maximize turbulence, even at low flow rates, this pattern achieves unparalleled heat transfer. The pattern has proved its effectiveness through rigorous testing and is the default choice for plate heat exchangers.
Variants of the Fishbone pattern are designed to create different levels of turbulence, use a different pressure drop, and meet different thermal requirements. Each variant fills a particular niche, or is aimed at a certain type of duty. This flexibility allows us to optimally cover all your heat transfer needs, no matter the application.
Special features include a reinforced hanging system for better suspension, an optimized distribution area that prevents stagnant zones, a maximized heat transmission area for high performance, and the unique Sonder Lock gaskets that ensure proper alignment of the plate pack in the assembled heat exchanger.
Features and benefits
Maximized heat transmission area, fine-tuned for each application, reduces the total number of plates needed for optimal performance. High efficiency lets you dial up performance and dial down your energy consumption.
Designed to ensure an even distribution of media across the entire plate and prevent stagnant zones, resulting in the best possible use of the pressure drop.
Unique gasket system that prevents misalignment of the plate pack and allows for easy assembly. The specially designed gasket groove preserves gasket elasticity and increases its lifetime.
SONDEX® Traditional plate heat exchangers
SONDEX® Traditional plate heat exchangers are the ideal choice for a wide range of applications across numerous market segments. We have the largest plate portfolio in the world, and customize each heat exchanger to meet your exact requirements. Innovative technologies and smart design make our traditional plate heat exchangers a stellar investment.
SONDEX® Semi-welded plate heat exchangers
SONDEX® semi-welded plate heat exchangers are the prime choice for challenging applications that involve aggressive media or high levels of pressure. We customize each heat exchanger to your specifications, and offer durable solutions designed to withstand extreme conditions and minimize the risks of operating with chemicals or refrigerants.
SONDEX® Sanitary plate heat exchangers
SONDEX® sanitary plate heat exchangers are made for applications with strict hygienic requirements and use FDA compliant materials. We care greatly about your end product, and take the necessary steps to ensure the highest output quality. Each solution is designed based on your specifications to provide the perfect conditions for your product.
SONDEX® evaporators are designed to handle advanced evaporation duties. Using semi-welded plate cassettes, the media are guaranteed to never mix. The plate cassettes are designed to ensure the optimal level of turbulence on both sides, while providing an even distribution of the media for superior performance and product quality.
Our SONDEX® condensers are the perfect choice for special applications that regular plate heat exchangers cannot handle. Designed to accommodate high-volume vapor flows, this product features a large inlet for the vapor stream. Combined with a short residence time, the optimal condensation conditions are created – even for low-pressure vapor duties.
The choice of heat exchanger depends on many factors. Our skilled sales engineers design the heat exchanger with the appropriate dimensions and correct specifications based on your input and requirements, to ensure that you receive a quality solution that performs optimally.
Our heat exchangers are approved and certified according to industry standards and requirements. For specific details, please reach out to your local SONDEX® brand sales representative.
