Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers


Our BPHE Concept

The compact Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger (BPHE) is constructed as a plate package of corrugated channel plates with a filler material between each plate. During the vacuumbrazing process, the filler material forms a brazed joint at every contact point between the plates, creating complex channels. The BPHE allows media at different temperatures to come into close proximity, separated only by channel plates that enable heat from one media to be transferred to the other with very high efficiency. The concept is similar to the older plate and frame technology, but without the gaskets and frame parts.

Simple, flexible, cost-effective
The channel plates form separate circuits for each media. The number, type and configuration of the channel plates are easy to vary to provide the thermal characteristics required.

In a one-pass configuration, the two flows are continuous through each channel plate. In a two-pass configuration, the two flows are redirected by special channel plates to give the equivalent of two units connected in series. In addition to one- and two-pass configurations, we offer a variety of other executions and customized solutions.

The flows inside a heat exchanger can be arranged differently to fulfill different purposes. In our BPHEs counter-current flow is more common because it increases efficiency. However, our BPHEs also employ co-current flow where necessary in applications such as flooded evaporators.

Easy to Install
Compared with shell-and-tube models of the same capacity, our BPHEs are as much as 90% smaller by weight and volume. The BPHE is not only easier to transport and handle, but its size means it also offers greater system design freedom. Further-more, connections are available in a wide range of industry standards.

Benefits of Blazed Plate Heat Exchangers

Our experience and expertise amount of material used have been gained all over the world across a wide range of applications in many different climates. We aim to maximize the performance and at the same time minimize the . This has environmental benefits, keeps costs down and reduces exposure when material prices increase. Other benefits of our BPHEs include:

  • Tailored: Optimized and customized
  • Performance: Reliable, energy-efficient and cost-effective
  • Economical: Optimal material usage
  • Versatile: Cover a wide range of cooling and heating capacities
  • Competitive: Save space compared with S&T heat exchangers; withstand high temperature and pressure (no gaskets), unlike PHE heat exchangers, and have minimal weight
  • Turbulent: Resist scaling and fouling; effective selfcleaning
  • Innovative: Patented solutions, e.g. true dual, double-wall and asymmetric BPHEs
  • Tested: Pressure- and leak-tested. All widely recognized pressure vessel codes available, e.g. PED, KHK and UL.
  • Responsive: Small holdup volume and lower refrigerant charge
  • Standards: Comply with standards such as ISO 9001(quality) and ISO 14001 (environmental)
