storage plate


Explanation:
Erm, sorry to spoil the fun. Don't trust my suggested translation, it's just an idea. However I think it's very unlikely that the Italians are talking about "plate heat exchangers" when they use the expression you mention. The TetraLaval site you were pointed to is certainly useful, but, apart from the lexical problems (in Italian, "scambiatore a piastre" is a standard expression that any HVAC manufacturer would use - I have never heard these devices described as "piastre di accumulo"), I can't find any reference to plate heat exchanger applications in cold rooms. Personally, I would check with your customer before pasting a name on this device.

heat transfer plate


Explanation:

...of which a plate heat exchanger is actually made.

ok, perhaps "plate heat exchanger" was not precise. The translator has to decide that within the context. It may amount to the same thing, or it may not.

Is that right?
Perhaps a further section of the site I suggested could shed some more light on the subject.

cold plate/liquid cooled dissipator


Explanation:

IMHO, now I am almost certain that "storage plate" cannot be it.

After some additional pondering, I also found out the simple "cold plate", which I rather like.

[dissipatore, or piastra refrigerante: an aluminum or other plate containing internal tubing through which a liquid coolant is forced, to absorb heat transferred to the plate - McGraw-Hill]

Possibly, the above may also apply as it is a "cella frigorifera". However, it is really hard to provide a satisfactory answer without more context...

Gosh, I really dissipated some (brain) heat on this!

Thank you Mr. Smith for your input.
