Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers Single Walled - Water to Water
Single Walled Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers transfer heat from one liquid medium to another with no intermixing of the two fluids. Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger requires the fluid to be pumped into both sides of it at once. The brazed 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 Flat 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. Well - not required everywhere. But, in most places it is and for places where you can mix heating and domestic water - you should never ever mix the two. Thus, use a Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger for all open loop heating systems!
