A plate type heat exchanger in a central cooling system has seawater leaking around the edges of some of the titanium plates. After inspection and reassembly following the manufacturer's instructions the problem still exists.

Should new plates be ordered to rectify the problem?

Answer:

Firstly, fit new gaskets for each of the plates with proper gluing technique.

If plates weren't overtightened previously, the leakage should stop.
