Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers - All
Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers transfer heat from one liquid medium to another with no intermixing of the two fluids. Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers requires the fluid to be pumped into both sides of it at once. The brazed flat plate heat exchangers we sell can transfer up to 240,000 BTU’s per hour. The amount of heat transferred is dependent on the delta T (difference of temperature between the two fluids). It also depends on the amount of fluid moving through both sides of the heat exchanger.
Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger are required for all radiant heating systems where you mix heating water with domestic water. Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers are produced with 10 to 50 flat plates, sizing is easy for your hydronic system or solar system. For Hydronic Geating and Domestic Water Systems - you should never ever mix the two. This is called open loop heating and is not allowed in many locations and should not be used anywhere. Thus, use a Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger for all open loop heating systems!
We sell both single walled and double walled brazed plate heat exchangers. Also, double wall flat plate heat exchangers are required in some locations - so check your local code.
