DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., April 11, 2019 — SWEP, part of Dover (NYSE: DOV), introduces the B220, a compact and highly efficient brazed plate heat exchanger (BPHE), which offers great heat transfer efficiency at a low cost.
A main application of this new product is high-efficiency tap water heating, but it can also be used in other applications such as oil cooling, space heating and desuperheaters. Thanks to its two-stack feature, the thermal length can be varied, and it is possible to get a tailored top-performing product for each application. The new 220 is optimized for single-phase applications and offers a maximum working pressure of 50 bar.
The new 220 model joins the existing 320HT/LT model as part of SWEP’s new L product range which offers high thermal efficiency and expanded capacity reach for a great application fit. This range also features two-stack functionality. By mixing two plates with different patterns in one brazed plate heat exchanger, the flexible plate composition leads to an optimized thermal length.
The new 220 model is part of SWEP’s collection of AHRI-certified BPHEs. As the first BPHEs to be certified by AHRI (the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute), they are well suited to HVAC, district heating and district cooling applications. AHRI’s certification programs are well recognized as a performance verifier for heating, air conditioning, and commercial refrigeration equipment.
