WCR UK appointed as a SWEP distributor for the UK

SWEP has announced that UK company WCR UK is now a distributor for the SWEP range of brazed heat exchangers in the United Kingdom.

With a growing demand for energy-efficient heating and cooling technology, SWEP is at the forefront of brazed plate heat exchanger (BPHE) technology developments.

The appointment of WCR UK as an exclusive distributor will ensure that even more businesses and homeowners can benefit from using SWEP’s cutting-edge BPHEs.

What makes SWEP brazed heat exchangers unique?

SWEP has significantly contributed to the design, development, and manufacture of gasket-free brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHE), which have several major benefits over gasket-plate-to-frame heat exchangers.

The Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger maximizes the most efficient energy transfer, with 95% of its content.

Over the course of 15-20 years, the life cycle cost is often halved compared to gasket-plate solutions. These latter solutions are framed and require more material, making them less efficient – the extra material does not improve heat exchange rates

What are brazed plate heat exchangers?

Brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHEs) are a type of heat exchanger that uses metal plates to transfer heat between two fluids.

The plates are brazed together with a high-temperature solder to create a strong, sealed unit.

BPHEs are highly efficient and can be used for various applications, including heating, cooling, and heat recovery.

How do brazed plate heat exchangers work?

Brazed plate heat exchangers work by transferring heat from one fluid to another through a series of metal plates. The plates are arranged so that the two fluids flow through them in alternate directions.

As the fluids flow through the heat exchanger, the plates transfer heat between them. The amount of heat that is transferred depends on the heat transfer coefficient of the plates and the temperature difference between the two fluids.

BPHEs are designed to have a high heat transfer coefficient, which means they can transfer large amounts of heat between two fluids.

This makes them ideal for use in applications where a large temperature difference exists between the two fluids, such as in cooling towers and air-conditioning systems.

BPHEs are also very efficient because they have a large surface area for heat transfer. This means that they can transfer more heat in a shorter period of time than other types of heat exchangers.

What are the benefits of using brazed plate heat exchangers?

BPHEs offer several benefits over other types of heat exchangers, including:

  • High efficiency: BPHEs are very efficient at transferring heat between two fluids. This is because they have a large surface area for heat transfer and a high heat transfer coefficient.
  • Flexibility: BPHEs are versatile and can be used for various applications, including heating, cooling, and heat recovery.
  • Compact size: BPHEs are much smaller than other types of heat exchangers, such as shell and tube heat exchangers. This makes them ideal for use in space-restricted applications.
  • Low maintenance: BPHEs require little maintenance and are easy to clean. What are the disadvantages of using brazed plate heat exchangers?
