This standard application normally uses R407C, R22, R134a, R410A, or R717 refrigerants. Temperatures cover a wider range than air conditioning chillers, with higher temperatures and lower ΔT as other characteristic differences. Traditional technologies include Shell & Tube and Coil-In-Tank. Circulating (industrial) chillers transfer heat using the refrigerant cycle to cool or heat an industrial process or fluid. The main components in the refrigerant cycle are the evaporator, compressor, condenser, and expansion valve. In addition to the usual evaporator and condenser, the refrigerant cycle may also include heat exchangers in economizers, cascades, de-superheaters, sub-coolers, suction gas heat exchangers, and flooded evaporators.
Brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHEs) are mainly used for evaporators, condensers and heat recovery in industries such as plastic & rubber (plastic molding cooling), food & beverage, concrete manufacturing, medical and pharmaceutics.
The B8T enables efficient heat exchange in applications with small flows and extreme demands for compactness. Easy to install and use, the product is small yet versatile, which makes it a good choice for a variety of one-phase and two-phase applications in many industries.
The highly efficient B15T has been developed to have maximum thermal length. Precision optimization allows efficient operation even at extremely small temperature differences, making the product the obvious choice for applications demanding high heat flux and improved energy utilization.
The B25T delivers efficient heat exchange solutions across a wide capacity interval. The product’s versatility and excellent heat transfer make it excellent for demanding water-to-water applications and as a high-performance condenser.
The V80 evaporator has been developed to perform effectively in a wide range of applications. It operates at very wide capacity intervals, making it the obvious choice for most types of evaporator applications.
