Pillow plate thermoplate
Pillow plate at the heart of our heat exchanger technology is the thermoplate also called pillow plate or embossed plate due to the shape of plates after expansion.
A pillow plate is a fully welded heat exchange plate. The plate consists of two plates that are spot-welded together. The plates are sealed with a welded seam along the contours of the plates. The plate is finally expanded until the desired expansion height is achieved. The expansion height is the maximum space between the two plates.
Pillow plates(thermoplates) and Dimple plates are similar products both made from stainless, but they also have distinct differences. The Dimple plate are a preformed plate to be attached to the final form afterwards. The pillow plates are included in the design before the final form. The dimple plates can be used for existing equipment, but only allows for a pressure below 6 bar. The pillow plate design allows for higher pressure.
