It's a common issue: In large gasketed plate heat exchangers (PHE) with a high number of plates, the individual plates which are clamped together frequently get displaced in the frame. This is exacerbated every time the plate heat exchanger opens and closes, and ultimately leads to leaks and mechanical damage to the individual plates.

This happens because the suspension area for each plate is occasionally too small. This area is used to guide and fix each plate in the area of the upper and lower support rod. Once this area is damaged, the displacements increase exponentially every time the plate stack closes! 

In the past, then a completely new plate stack would be ordered and installed, which frequently involved long lead times and high procurement costs. Due to the ever increasing scarcity of raw materials, especially in the stainless steel and titanium sector, spare part prices have sky-rocketed and delivery times can be more than a year, leading to cases being escalated!
