WCR is known for leading the industry by providing reliable heat exchanger replacement parts, convenient service and manufacturing expertise. In addition to replacement heat exchanger plates, we also produce high-quality replacement heat exchanger gaskets for a vast array of industries.
Depending on the application, a plate heat exchanger gasket must endure extreme temperatures, corrosive materials and chemicals, and other pressures over time. If a heat exchanger gasket doesn’t fit properly with the plate heat exchanger, it can result in unwanted stress on the gasket and even mechanical damage to the heat exchanger, limiting its useful life.
This is why WCR’s replacement heat exchanger gaskets are firm, flexible and fabricated with options to suit any major name brand heat exchanger. In fact, we can accommodate any gasket model/material combination, with over 600,000 replacement gaskets always in stock and ready to order.
At WCR, we hold ourselves to the highest standards, working closely with the world’s leading suppliers of raw rubber materials to provide our customers the best in performance and reliability. Each of our replacement gaskets is subject to meticulous quality control, ensuring that every part is durable, dependable and built to last.
