SWEP Introduces Innovative Solution for Transcritical CO2 Refrigeration Systems With SWEP B285H

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Sept. 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ – SWEP, part of Dover (NYSE: DOV) and a world-leading supplier of brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHEs), today announced the launch of its new ultra-pressure SWEP B285H product, targeting applications with single-phase fluids, high heat loads and demanding pressure requirements.

The B285 family complements SWEP’s existing transcritical refrigeration product portfolio, which includes the B4T, B18, and B185, making SWEP the one-stop-shop in applications requiring a larger gas-cooler. SWEP B285H has a new plate pattern optimized for high heat load capacities of up to 550 kW as a gas cooler and for a flow capacity above 50m³/h. Its compact yet lightweight design becomes an innovative solution for high customer demands in applications such as hypermarkets, supermarkets, heat recovery and heat pumps.

By applying SWEP B285H in a system, the large capacity range yet compact size supports a reduced footprint and lower cost of ownership.  For customers using natural refrigerant CO2, the double plate design delivers a frameless solution that uses less material all while withstanding ultra-high working pressures.

The launch of B285H demonstrates SWEP’s commitment to meet customers’ demands for innovative and sustainable product solutions that support the transition to environmentally friendly refrigerants.
