Dutch tap water
Due to safety reasons, during the past decades, the Dutch market has opted for double-wall tap water Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers (BPHEs) in their district heating networks.
Jacket temperature control
Keeping the temperature of chemical reactions at the right level is a delicate matter. Often the reaction takes place in a reactor and is very sensitive to temperature changes.
Compact and reliable BPHEs at Hadeed District Cooling Plant
Located in the Jubail Industry City of Saudi Arabia, the Hadeed District Cooling Plant has replaced all existing chillers and DX units which have previously served individual buildings in the area.
BPHEs in wind power stations
Wind power is one of the most cost-effective and rapidly growing renewable energy technologies available.
UK supermarket cuts carbon footprint through innovative technology
Supermarket chain Sainsbury has managed to heavily reduce the carbon footprint of a heating and cooling installation at its 9,300 square meter supermarket in Crayford, Kent, in the UK. This has been done by using innovative technologies combined with an intelligent energy management system.
Shining a light on tomatoes
A single J624 from GE Energy with an output of 4 MW can cover the power needs of about 9,000 European households. Moreover, this flagship is helping to shine a light on Dutch tomatoes consumed all over Europe. SWEP's B427 is an integral part of this impressive unit.
Modern solar collectors are more efficient than ever. Furthermore, the possibility of using absorptive surfaces in colors other than black has helped architects to identify new creative opportunities for solar collectors.
Tap water with extreme hardness
Ringsjön is a lake in southern Sweden from which tap water is drawn. The very hard water (dH 11) imposes severe stress on the equipment used. After 4-6 years' operation, four SWEP heat exchangers used for heating the tap water were brought to SWEP’s laboratory for testing.
Rank® Organic Rankine Cycle technology with applications in heat recovery solution
In a project involving ACCIONA and KEROS CERAMICA, RANK® has worked with SWEP to implement a heat recovery solution for electricity power generation.
Pure water cooling systems
In some applications, such as cooling of power electronics, ions are not desirable. Ions in the water may lead to short-circuit, or spark over in the electronic equipment.
Outokumpu cools machine shop using natural elements
Outokumpu – a world-leading company in custom-made products in coarse, special stainless steel (quarto) – has invested heavily in its rolling mill in Degerfors, Sweden. Cooling the machine shop to enable it to provide the best service to the rolling mill is of crucial importance.
Clean power when ORC system recovers waste heat
An affordable and sustainable supply of energy is the key to modern society as well as global economy.
