Widnes, England, assignors to Imperial Chemical llndustries Limited, London, England Filed Aug. 13, 1971, Ser. No. 171,426 Claims priority, application Great Britain, Aug. 28, 1970, 41,603/ 70 lint. Cl. F28f 3/00 US. Cl. 165-166 5 Sheets Drawing. 10 Pages Specification Heat exchangers for transfer of heat from one fluid to another through thin walled members made of a plastics material resistant to corrosive action of the fluids. The heat exchanger is a block formed from plates of plastics material spaced apart from each other, at least over areas intermediate their edges, for flow of fluid therebetwecn and spacers of plastics material at opposite edges of the plates forming seals between adjacent plates at the edges and defining passages for fluids between spaced apart areas of the plates. In one embodiment one set of passages terminates at one pair of faces of the block and another set of passages, not communicating with the first set, terminates at a different pair of faces of the block. Thus a fluid of one temperature circulates adjacent a fluid of a different temperature, the fluids being separated from each other by a thin walled member.

Suitable plastics materials include any polymeric material capable of withstanding the temperature, pressure and corrosive conditions within the heat exchanger. 11- lustrative materials include polytetrafluoroethylene, high density polyethylene and polypropylene.

Sheet thickness, suflicient to provide fluid separation yet thin enough to provide for suflicient heat transfer, is usually from 0.01-1.0 mm., preferably 0.25-0.5 mm. Spacer thickness is not critical but should be chosen to provide sufficient flow of fluid through the exchanger.
