Pressure drop characteristics of a gasketed commercial plate heat exchanger (PHE) configured for single phase water to water flow application are presented. Isothermal pressure drop data are provided for two symmetric 30°/30°, 60°/60° and a non-symmetric 30°/60° (mixed) chevron plate configuration in the plate heat exchanger. Reynolds number was varied from 500 to 2,500. The experimental data are found to be a strong function of chevron angle and Reynolds number. Performance evaluation results show that mixed plate configuration can be a choice in optimizing the PHE design for improved performance.
