BPHEs for chillers

Complete high-efficiency product range for chiller applications available.

By SWEP April 10, 2015

SWEP offers a wide range of brazed plate heat exchanger (BPHE) sizes with different plate geometry and different distribution devices to suit the various chiller applications. The technology allows the pressure drop on the secondary side to be reduced while maintaining good heat transfer. In SWEP BPHEs, the technology reduces the hold-up volume of the inner circuit by 30%. This lowers the charge of R410A, saving money on refrigerant and helping manufacturers comply with environmental legislation. Furthermore, the refrigerant channels are narrower, which increases heat transfer and hence efficiency. On the secondary side, the pressure drop is lower. Easy to install and use, the product is small yet flexible, which makes it a particularly good choice for economizer applications and small water coolers.
