Case stories

Innovative desalination technology

In recent decades, over-exploitation, pollution and climate change have led to severe water stress across the world. Desalination could help resolve this, but large-scale desalination technologies are energy intensive. Fresh Water Nature (FWN) is a clean-tech company specializing in green water treatment with a low-impact, low-carbon desalination technology called Cool Steam.

Biogas purification with liquified CO2 from heat exchangers

- Minimizing energy consumption through cryogenic distillation. French based VERDEMOBIL BIOGAZ has been a pioneer in biogas purification since the first unit was developed in 2010. The company recently expanded its range of biogas valorization solutions to meet the diversity of uses and needs: BioCO2, BioLNG, and BioHydrogen. SWEP brazed plate heat exchangers have had multiple core functions in the liquefaction stages. 

Aircel air dryers show their full potential with ADWIS

With 100,000 units sold at the beginning of 2015, SWEP's range ADWIS (Air Dryer With Integrated Separator) is now quickly becoming the market standard within several industrial applications. A successful combination of research and thorough knowledge of market demands, this solution solves a common problem without compromising compactness or efficiency.

Using available energy for productive use

ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) technology made possible by SWEP brazed plate heat exchangers is being used in Sweden to transform waste heat into renewable electricity. This high efficiency and low maintenance way to produce sustainable electricity is being adopted by district heating systems around the world.

Waste to Energy - 80% was turned into district heating

Vestforbraending is one of the largest waste management companies in Northern Europe. The company owns and operates a combined heat and power producing waste-to-energy plant with an annual capacity of 600,000 tonnes of waste. All the heat produced is utilized as the plant is interconnected with the regional district heating system in Copenhagen.

China State Shipbuilding Corporation Limited gains efficient and stable power for vessel transportation

China is the most populous coastal country in the world. Vessels are necessary technical equipment for the operation of the marine industry. The reliability of vessel’s power unit has attracted intensive attention from the whole industry chain.

Brazed plate heat exchangers in wind power stations

Wind power is one of the most cost-effective and rapidly growing renewable energy technologies available. The world’s windmills already produce 13,000 MW of electrical power, and experts consider that some 10% of the world’s energy demand could be supplied by wind power in the future.

Shining a light on tomatoes

A single J624 from GE Energy with an output of 4 MW can cover the power needs of about 9,000 European households. Moreover, this flagship is helping to shine a light on Dutch tomatoes consumed all over Europe. SWEP's B427 is an integral part of this impressive unit. 

Rank® Organic Rankine Cycle technology with applications in heat recovery solution

In a project involving ACCIONA and KEROS CERAMICA, RANK® has worked with SWEP to implement a heat recovery solution for electricity power generation.

Pure water cooling systems

In some applications, such as cooling of power electronics, ions are not desirable. Ions in the water may lead to short-circuit, or spark over in the electronic equipment.

Clean power when ORC system recovers waste heat

An affordable and sustainable supply of energy is the key to modern society as well as global economy.
