Plate Heat Exchangers
Overview

Copper brazed plate heat exchangers provide efficient heat transfer with a small footprint. They are maintenance free, provide a long service lifetime and can withstand high temperatures and extremely high design pressures. They are used in a range of duties including cooling, heating, evaporation and condensing.

The most common and fast moving series of the BPHE are:

  1. AC series (Evaporator)
  2. CB series (Condenser)

 

  1. AC series

Alfa Laval AC line of brazed plate heat exchangers provide efficient heat transfer with a small footprint. They are specifically developed to work in air conditioning, refrigeration, chillers and heat pump applications.

Features

Innovative features for this single/double circuit heat exchanger include a patented distributor integrated in the plate design.

Applications

  • Evaporator and condenser in chillers and heat pumps 
  • Economizer in chillers and heat pumps

The standard design supports a wide variety of HFC refrigerants such as R407C, R404A, R507, R134a. The high-pressure version is suitable for R410A and natural refrigerants (CO2 - propane)

       B. CB series

The Alfa Laval CB range of brazed plate heat exchangers feature efficient heat transfer with an extremely small footprint, making them ideal for demanding installations where space is at a premium. The CB range is used in HVAC heating/cooling, refrigeration, process heating/cooling, oil cooling, solar heating and many other applications.

Features

  • Innovative features for this single/double circuit heat exchanger include a patented distributor integrated in the plate design.
  • Brazing the stainless steel plates together eliminates the need for gaskets and thick frame plates.

Typical applications

  • HVAC heating/cooling
  • Refrigerant applications
  • Industrial cooling/heating
  • Oil cooling

Some systems require the usage of gasketed plate heat exchangers since they are feasible with the maintenance part of the plates. The gasketed heat exchangers can be removed, cleaned and installed easily. These products are used in generally with large chiller and cold room storages. Contact us further on details and requirements for this range of plate heat exchangers.

Features

  • Compact, durable designs with consistently high quality; ease of installation.
  • Extensive range of BHE models providing cooling capacities from 0.5 to 600 kW.
  • Equalancer system provides a substantial saving in heat transfer surface compared to BHEs with traditional distribution system.
  • Cost efficient: space savings due to the compact design of BHEs compared to shell-and-tube heat exchangers.
  • Rapid response to temperature changes due to small hold-up volume and lower refrigerant charge.
