What Is a Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger ?

Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers (BPHEs, sometimes known as plate to plate heat exchangers) are one of the most efficient means to transfer heat from one medium to another. A Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger consists of corrugated plates that combine to create channels through which a hot medium and a cold medium (typically water) can be distributed. Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers can be used for a range of functions in a heating or cooling system – they can act as condensers, evaporators, oil or gas coolers and be used for other functions that involve the transfer of heating or cooling.

Braze material and plate corrugation patterns can be configured for different operating liquids and system requirements. Our copper-brazed units are compatible with water, Ethylene Glycol based Water Solution (EGW), and other common coolants. Copper-brazed units can be operated at temperatures of up to 195°C (383°F) and pressures up to 31 bar (450 psig). Nickel-brazed Plate Heat Exchangers can use deionized water, high purity fluids, and corrosive fluids and operate at temperatures of up to 350°C (662°F) and pressures up to 16 bar (232 psig).

With the wide range of 23 different models of brazed plate heat exchangers, We has the answer to any application, either coming from the refrigeration field (evaporation and condensation of refrigeration gas from 3 to 850 tons) or the HVAC field for all heating-, sanitary water- and air conditioning applications. Applications of brazed plate heat exchangers: – heating / hot water systems – district heating systems – evaporator – subcooler – capacitors – economizer – oil cooler – heat pumps – laser cooling – ammonia systems – applications with deionized water – CO2 supermarket refrigeration systems – Data Centre – and many more
