In the plate heat exchanger, the hot and cold flows alternating sides pass through the gaps left by the plates, thus resulting in heat transfer.
The advantage of this type of heat exchanger is a compact configuration, and therefore are suitably used in confined spaces.
The plates have a geometry that causes a turbulence in the fluid, improving heat transfer.
