How Plate Heat Exchangers (PHEs) Work

Plate heat exchangers operate by transferring heat from one fluid to another through sectional divisions. The plates used in PHEs have hollow spaces between them, creating ducts through which fluids flow, facilitating efficient heat exchange. The number of plates in a PHE varies based on its heat exchange capacity, with more plates indicating higher capacity.

Advantages of Plate Heat Exchangers

Compact, Versatile, and Efficient

Plate Heat Exchangers are gaining popularity in both domestic and commercial settings due to their numerous advantages:

  • Space Efficiency: PHEs take up very little room and can be used as standalone units or as part of larger heating systems, such as combination boilers.
  • Size Variety: Available in various sizes to accommodate different applications, making them versatile.
  • Efficiency: PHEs excel in heat transfer efficiency, offering a wide range of supply options.

Disavantages of Plate Heat Exchangers

Maintenance is Key
While Plate Heat Exchangers offer exceptional benefits, they do come with maintenance requirements:

  • Regular Cleaning: Due to their high flow rate and rapid heat exchange, debris buildup occurs quickly within the system, leading to scale deposits over time.
  • Maintenance Intensity: Larger PHEs may require more maintenance, emphasising the importance of regular cleaning to ensure optimal system performance.

Benefits of Cleaning Plate Heat Exchangers

Experiencing heating inconsistencies? A dirty plate heat exchanger might be the cause. Regular cleaning can transform your system.

Tom, of Power Flush UK, came out yesterday to power flush our heating system. Prior to his visit we had several radiators which were not heating up and others which only got lukewarm. He did a first class job. The house is now much warmer and the 3 radiators which were the biggest problem are now red hot. He also gave me some excellent advise on how to best operate my system. Tom arrived precisely on time despite travelling nearly 2 hours to get here. There was no mess. I highly recommend them to anyone thinking they need a power flush.

Hired them to power flush our heating system which is an Air Source Heat Pump system with two sets of manifolds for ground and first floor. Complete flush overall and then each manifold and each element of the manifold along with radiators. Very pleasant guys, on time, explained everything and showed me the dirt from the internal system and then the clean water at the end before providing the new solution of inhibitor, antifreeze etc at the end. Would definitely recommend anyone who has an air source heat system to remove the dirt and freshen up the internal system to improve the heating efficiency.

We had a power flush, Absolutely brilliant service, heating want working in my little ones room so we needed someone quick. Prebooked for the new year as everyone was booked up but they had a cancellation and were able to come withing 4 days of me calling. We had a lovely guy called Tom who listened to the issue and what we had previously tried. Tom tried a few things to get the issue we had sorted realised early on that it wasn't working and altered his approach and cleared the blocked pipe we had. Heating works a treat now! Really respectful of our home, wore slippers in the house so he wasn't trailing wet/dirt in the house. Couldn't recommend this service more!

I'm really pleased that Tom managed to get my central heating working again by flushing out the radiators and pipes. He did a very thorough, expert job and didn't leave until the heating was working correctly. This firm was recommended by a trustworthy plumber and they did not disappoint! I would recommend them to anyone as they sorted my problem out (radiators not heating up) in one day. All toasty for the winter now! Ben was an excellent communicator and I'm a happy customer.

Ben and his team were extremely professional, helpful and knowledgeable. They turned up on the time they said would even though we arranged the appointment many weeks in advance and they drove from Leicestershire to Lincolnshire. Regarding the job itself, they did a great job of flushing our microbore pipes and now the radiators are working perfectly. We can very highly recommend this company.
These guys fixed the problem that others failed to. They went above and beyond cutting out blocked pipes. Look at the pic! They are simply the best.

Power Flush UK attended out house in November 2021, our central heating system was completely blocked with all the radiators stone cold. Ben was great and arranged to bring our appointment forward by a week to get us sorted!. Within a hour or so of them being here our radiator's were starting to clear and get warm again. By the end of the day the system was fully up and running and they even fitted a new pump for me which I had bought previously. Excellent company and very tidy. I would highly recommend this company if you require a power flush on your central heating.
