Understanding BPHE efficiency in your systems
SWEP is the world's largest producer of brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHEs). This heat exchanger technology is a great option in terms of efficiency and form factor in multiple applications. This case highlights how to choose the proper heat exchanger and how that choice directly impacts the performance of the system.
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.
Geothermal stack of BPHEs
Geothermal energy storage is a new energy-saving application with promising future growth potential. Reduced fossil fuel burning and a 95% reduction of CO2 emissions are clear advantages of this system.
Ecology meets economy in a sustainable office building
The Slovak city of Košice has recently seen the construction of a new and innovative building – the EcoPoint Office Center.
Dutch university building gets pioneering climate system
The stunning new building for the Centre for Life Science at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands will boast a revolutionary climate system reducing the energy used for heating and cooling by 60%.
Clean or untreated water? A BPHE works with both
Industries around the world have to face the challenge of water contamination due to insufficient filtration.
Turkey promotes a more sustainable society
Turkey is currently experiencing an increase in population combined with an urbanization rate that has risen rapidly, from 53% in 1990 to 75% in 2008. New buildings are constantly being erected in urban areas, and it is necessary to find cost-effective ways to save energy.
Nefit goes for AsyMatrix®
Dutch company Nefit uses our heat exchanger based on the AsyMatrix® concept in the company’s boilers.
SWEP and Ecogetec provide efficient heating to Tauá resort in Brazil
Ecogetec is a Brazilian company that creates technology that transforms biomass into heat for pool and tap water for hotels, motels, industries, hospitals and clubs. When it came to a project involving providing a more efficient heating solution at Tauá Resort in Brazil, Ecogetec chose SWEP as their preferred heat transfer partner. The project called for (46) SWEP brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHEs) to be installed in different locations around the resort.
Oventrop: Keep water running with Sealix® BPHEs
Scaling and corrosion are two of the main reasons for the breakdown of tap water heating systems. This was also the experience of Oventrop – one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of sanitary fittings and water systems. At least until they turned to SWEP’s new range of Sealix® protected brazed-plate heat exchangers.
All Valve Industries cooperates with SWEP to challenge efficiency in hot water delivery
Circulating hot water in a plumbing system to maintain the design temperature is standard practice in most residential and commercial multi-level buildings.
SWEP BPHEs help maintain playing conditions at top golf course
Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, OK was faced with the challenge of maintaining soil temperatures for its new Cool Season Bank grass between 65°F and 80°F degrees throughout the year. With the help of RAE Corporation and the Technical Systems team, along with SWEP BPHEs, a system was designed that will prevent the club’s 18 greens from dying in harsh temperatures.
