Brazed plate benefits

Whatever your requirements, a brazed plate heat exchanger will make your heat transfer more efficient.

Compact brazed heat exchangers are now available for large flows and high capacities – applications for which gasket plate heat exchangers were previously the standard.
You have everything to gain by converting to a brazed plate heat exchanger – it makes your application more compact as well as more efficient.

SWEP’s brazed plate heat exchangers are extremely compact compared with other technologies.
The footprint can be as little as one tenth that of a shell & tube heat exchanger or half that of a gasket PHE.

With no need for gaskets or supporting equipment, about 95% of the material is used to transfer heat.
The highly turbulent flow also enables you to use small temperature differences efficiently.

The robust construction requires no gaskets, eliminating their risk of leaking. This means stable thermal and hydraulic performance, with minimal maintenance and operational downtime.

The compact size uses space efficiently and makes system design more flexible. Larger installations can be constructed unit by unit via standard doors and elevators, and it is easy to expand capacity when demand increases.

You will save on energy, maintenance, spare parts, and installation. The life-cycle cost over 15-20 years can often be half that of a corresponding gasketed solution.

SWEP BPHEs are normally self-cleaning, thanks to highly turbulent flows. In applications with a high risk of fouling or scaling, cleaning in place is easy, without disassembly.

By combining plate design, materials, and connections from standard components, SWEP keeps lead times short while still maximizing output in your specific application.

Brazed vs gasket plate heat exchangers

Installing a compact plate brazed heat exchanger leads to significant reductions in volume and weight, because gasketed plate heat exchangers of the same capacity require support equipment and pressure plates.
The BPHE footprint is hence much smaller. This means greater design freedom for every application – and reduced installation costs.
