Barriquand - Platular

Platular® smart hybrid welded plate heat exchanger


The combined advantages of both technologies with:

  • The thermal performance of plates
  • The mechanical resistance of tubes
  • Full couterflow heat exchanger

Different types of streams:


BARRIQUAND has developed 5 types of exchange stream with different geometrical characteristics offering complementary thermal and hydraulic performance levels and enabling a low thermal approach and minimum pinch.

A unique combination of plate and tube technology.

List of possible applications:


All types of heat exchange (counterflow heat exchanger in general) :

  • Liquid/liquid
  • Loaded liquids
  • Condensation
  • Evaporation
  • Gas/gas
  • Gas/liquid
  • Air/water heat exchanger


Different types of Platular® smart hybrid welded plate heat exchanger:


  • Type X : Especially designed for dirty fluids, these units can really generate important savings on cleaning and maintenance activities.
  • Type IJS : These units are part of the first generation of Platular® heat exchangers with first units introduced in the sixties.
  • Type PVC : An extremely robust Platular® heat exchanger with high thermal performance, specially developed for district heating networks.
  • Immerged plate type : can be made on request in numerous formats.
  • Internal heat exchanger (X type or IJS type) fit into distillation column.
