The WCHE Exchange Program is designed to reduce downtime to an absolute minimum. When it is time for service, a refurbished plate pack will be on stand-by for immediate installation.
Keep your plate heat exchanger up and running with WCHE exchange plates. When it is time to regasket, you will have a fresh, reconditioned, regasketed, and ready-to-install plate pack on hand. Downtime is limited to change-out time.
Returned plates are put through the rigorous WCHE reconditioning and regasketing process. With the exchange program, you can be sure that carefully inspected, reconditioned, and regasketed plates will be ready for your next change-out.
Our exchange program is simple. Exchange our regasketed/reconditioned used plates for your plates that are in need of regasketing /reconditioning. You are charged only for the new gasket and labor to clean, inspect, and regasket your old plate for our next exchange customer.
- The customer fails to return the used plates.
- The returned plates are of a different material than those ordered by the customer.
- The returned plates fail a dye penetrant test or fail a visual inspection for excessive wear and pitting.
The exchange program is available for a limited number of plate types. Please contact the WCHE service center for additional information.
