  • Publication number: 20210063035
    Abstract: A heat exchange element includes a countercurrent portion including a plurality of partition plates each having a planar shape and a plurality of spacer plates each having a corrugated shape in cross section. The partition plates and spacer plates are alternately stacked such that corrugation directions of the spacer plates are aligned. A side surface of the countercurrent portion is formed by end portions defined by bending portions in each of which the partition plate and the spacer plate are overlaid. Since the heat exchange element according to the embodiment of the present disclosure is configured as described above, the heat insulation between flow paths of the heat exchange element and the outside air is improved, and heat exchange between fluid in the flow paths of the heat exchange element and the outside air is reduced. Consequently, the heat exchange element achieves improved heat exchange efficiency.
