The compact brazed plate heat exchanger (BPHE) is constructed as a plate package of corrugated channel plates with a filler material between each plate.
During the vacuum-brazing process the filler material forms a brazed joint at every contact point between the plates, creating complex channels.
They are maintenance free, provide a long service lifetime and can withstand high temperatures and extremely high design pressures.
A brazed plate heat exchanger (BPHE) is often used when there is a need to transfer heat from a hot liquid to a cold liquid or vice versa. It can also be used to transfer heat into or out of gases and vapours, such as those present in combustion processes or chemical reactions.
The most effective way to choose a brazed plate heat exchanger for your application will depend on several factors, including the operating temperature range, flow rate requirements and pressure drop specifications for each fluid entering or exiting the system.
