SWEP launches a new Heat pump concept for North America

At the AHR exhibition, SWEP launches a new product range for Heat pump applications. Now more customers can get highly efficient heat transfer solutions with low weight, compact size, and small hold-up volume.

SWEP´s Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers (BPHEs) are made of plates of stainless steel bonded together with braze joints of pure copper. The resulting structure is so strong that no seals or frames are needed to achieve hermetically sealed pressure vessels with UL/CSA approval for all commercial refrigerants.

BPHEs are high performing and flexible building blocks for heat pumps, allowing for smaller and lighter systems – while improving performance. SWEP has developed an optimized distribution system for ground source heat pumps that assures stable evaporation with low superheat. This both improves system performance and drastically reduces risk of freezing. The SWEP asymmetric reversible condensers combine high efficiency with low internal volume and a smaller-than-expected footprint. The ultra-compact V26F fits next to standard size compressors and has optimized plate geometries for reversible duty and delivers unbeatable performance.

The SWEP factory in Tulsa (OK) is a complete production site and logistic hub that serves the whole American continent with BPHEs. Plates are pressed, brazed with desired connection execution, and stocked for immediate shipment to customers. SWEP is constantly developing their BPHEs to optimize energy efficiency and material utilization for the highest sustainability. This development is based on a combination of application expertise and design innovation.

About brazed plate heat exchangers

A brazed plate heat exchanger consists of corrugated plates, combined to create complex channels through which a hot medium and a cold medium can be distributed. The media flow in separate circuits but come into close proximity, allowing heat to be transferred from one to the other with very high efficiency. The number, type, and configuration of the cover plates can be varied to achieve the required thermal properties.
