Because of the noticeable advantages of plate heat exchangers compared with tube heat exchangers, it has been widely applied and researched. However, in the process of practical application, it is easy to find that the performance of heat exchangers produced domestically and from developed countries are quite different, which is one of the key factors that restrict the wide application of domestic plate heat exchangers, there are few studies on this subject yet. Thus, the paper analyzed the main difference of thermal capacity between a domestic and foreign plate heat exchangers through experimental researches, and the results all show that, foreign plate heat exchangers has a more superior thermal capacity and heat exchange efficiency than domestic one, which is in purpose of offering some guidance on technical improvements and applications in the future.
Key words: Domestic / foreign / heat exchange efficiency / plate heat exchanger / thermal capacity
