At Synergizing Technology, we are dedicated to supplying the best plate heat exchanger gaskets in the market. We pride ourselves with being the high quality alternative to your regular OEM gaskets and know what really matters when it comes to PHE gaskets. It is not surprising that the world's leading companies from industries such as the chemical, food or energy power industry have been successfully using Synergizing Technologies gaskets for their heat exchangers.
The secret behind the quality of our gaskets is that we do not compromise on quality. The manufacturing process of our gasket manufacturers is significantly different to that of other manufacturers. All of our gaskets are made directly under stringent quality control and world class manufacturing norms using only the best quality raw materials.
We supply gaskets for majority of models of leading Plate Heat Exchangers manufacturers.
Incompressibility - The rubber compounds behaves as if it were a liquid that can change shape but cannot flow, so that after being squeezed it will return to its original vulcanized shape.
Strength - It is strong enough to withstand the forces normally incurred by squeezing into position and being acted upon by Pressurized liquid.
Softness - This is adjusted by compounding so that the rubber is strong enough for the application but still soft enough to conform closely to the metal surfaces and provides a seal without undue stresses being applied
Resistance to Fluid - The high molecular weight, cross linked polymer matrix is resistant to penetration by any fluid of a dissimilar chemical nature to itself.
Resistance to Temperature - One disadvantage of the desired 'Rubber qulity' of the polymer material is the fact that all polymers will only behave as a rubber over a relatively short range of temperature. Thus accurate selection of the compound according to the required temperature range is crucial.
Synergizing Technologies Re-gasketing facility has been specifically designed to meet the exacting requirements of our clients.
Our experience in this field enables us to service any Plate Heat Exchanger and be able to guarantee all our work.
Stage 1 - Good Received
As plate packs are received they undergo a stringent checking-in procedure ensuring each pack is complete and cross relates to the customer specifications.
They are then marked with a unique number to ensure full traceability.
Stage 2 - Plate Cleaning
The old gaskets are carefully removed and the plates are then subjected to a thorough high pressure washing and chemical cleaning programmed to remove all traces of gasket and process contaminants.
Stage 3 - Inspection
Prior to re-gasketing, each plate must pass a three-stage inspection process encompassing visual corrosion, channel deformation and also a dye penetrant check to highlight the minute pinholes or cracks that can result from excessively corrosive applications.
Stage 4 - Re-Gasketing
Date stamped gaskets are selected from our extensive stock and bonded to the plates. Our experienced team use strong adhesives including heat cured two-part epoxy resin cement, designed specifically for strength. A combination of quality in both adhesive and gasket selection ensures superior performance.
Stage 5 - Commissioning
After final inspection, the reconditioned plates are ready to be promptly dispatched to the customer, where we can provide installation and commissioning if required.
Each reconditioned unit undergoes a stringent refurbishment program to ensure build quality matches that of new units. The eight stage process includes:
1. Dismantling of frame
2. Preparation of parts for painting
3. Replacement of all studs and bolts
4. Examination of all parts
5. Selection of optimal plates
6. Adhesion of new gaskets to plates
7. Assembly of unit
8. Pressure test and installation
As with all our services, we provide free technical advice ensuring the client's requirements are matched with the most suitable Plate Heat Exchanger design for the application. In addition to reassurance of dealing with a leading name, all our units come with good-as-new guarantees.
With our extensive range of reconditioned plates held on site we are able to build the Plate Heat Exchanger, ready for rapid deployment.
