SWEP Presents Latest Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger Developments at ACREX India


SWEP International exhibited at ACREX India, South Asia’s largest exhibition for air conditioning, heating, ventilation and intelligent buildings, on February 28 - March 2, 2019. Show highlights include:

Challenging Efficiency in Industrial Chillers/Heat Pump Applications
SWEP displayed brazed plate heat exchangers (“BPHE”) for their use in high-efficiency evaporators and condensers for water cooled chillers and heat pumps. AsyMatrix®, SWEP’s innovative asymmetric design technology for BPHEs, was also highlighted regarding its plate pattern which improves heat transfer while reducing water pressure drop and refrigerant charge.

Development in Line with Evolving Refrigerants
The demand for natural refrigerants such as CO2 is increasing, and the B185 BPHE is the natural choice. SWEP is supporting natural refrigerants with a great CO2 refrigerant range. The compact yet lightweight B185 is suitable for cold-chain applications.

Ideal Option for District Energy and Free Cooling
SWEP also promoted its B649 and 320HT BPHEs at the show. They are ideal models for district heating and cooling networks, HVAC, and industrial projects that need an efficient, compact BPHE with close temperature approaches at high operating pressures. SWEP offers the highest capacity BPHEs on the market optimizing space saving, heat recovery and installation time.

A Completely New Interface for SWEP’s Industry-Leading Selection Software
The new G8 release of SWEP’s industry-leading SSP software allows users to build and optimize their system. The home menu serves as a quick-look information portal and a combined calculation window for both two-stack and single-stack models. The calculation window enhances selections where both thermal length and pressure drop is important. Users of the evaporator dual calculations will find possibility to simulate uneven load conditions.

Drive the Potential for Air Dryer Application

SWEP has achieved a breakthrough in compactness with ADWIS, one of the smallest air dryers on the market. The ADWIS combines two BPHEs (a refrigerated heat exchanger and a recovery unit) sandwiching an integrated separator in a modular design. This highly cost-effective solution offers stable high performance, convenient drainage and simple installation

About Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers:

A brazed plate heat exchanger consists of corrugated plates, combined to create complex channels through which a hot medium and a cold medium can be distributed.  The media flow in separate circuits but come into close proximity, allowing heat to be transferred from one to the other with very high efficiency.  The number, type, and configuration of the cover plates can be varied to achieve the required thermal properties.
