Title: PLATE HEAT EXCHANGER
Abstract:
A plate heat exchanger (2) comprising first and second end plates (4, 6), a lower bar (14, 66) extending from the first end plate (4) towards the second end plate (6),and a pack (8) of heat transfer plates (10) arranged between the first and second end plates and extending above the lower bar, is provided. The plate heat exchanger is characterized in that the lower bar (14, 66) comprises a groove (40, 82) having a length axis (L) which extends parallel to a longitudinal direction (l) of the lower bar (14, 66), and a depth axis (D) extending perpendicular to the length axis. The plate heat exchanger further comprises a support foot (42). An upper portion (56) of the support foot (42) is arranged to be received in the groove (40, 82) and a lower portion (59) of the support foot (42) is arranged to extend from the lower bar (14, 66) and contact the ground (18) to keep the lower bar at a distance from the ground. The upper portion (56) of the support foot (42) is arranged to be slidable in the groove (40, 82) along the length axis (L) to enable adjustment of a position of the support foot (42) along the lower bar (14, 66).
