The brazed heat exchanger is the most advanced form of the compact plate heat exchanger especially designed for a wide range of applications in both process and hydronic applications. These heat exchangers are also widely used for refrigeration applications as evaporators, condensers and sub-coolers.
Advantages of the Brazed Heat Exchanger
Due to the high efficiency of the brazed plate heat exchangers, these heat exchangers are often half the size of conventional shell & tube heat exchangers. The smaller footprint also makes it easier to be installed on skid systems and portable equipment packages.
Due to the turbulent flow of the fluid in the channels, the heat transfer coefficients of our brazed plate heat exchangers are 3-5 times higher than that of a conventional shell & tube heat exchanger for a similar application.
The brazed plate heat exchanger is brazed using 99.9% copper. The copper provides a strong bond when heated in a special furnace, keeping the plates bonded together. The heat exchangers have a high pressure-temperature rating. All our copper brazed heat exchangers are rated for 450 psig at 428˚F.
The brazed plate heat exchanger can provide a temperature approach of 1˚F. This allows for maximum utilization of waste heat recovery.
We can be reached on a 24 hour basis, 7 days a week for any replacement of heat exchangers on an emergency basis.
We stock a complete range of brazed plate heat exchangers at our facility to meet all your heat transfer requirements.
Heat Exchangers Online stocks two types of brazed heat exchangers: Copper Brazed Heat Exchangers and Fusion Brazed Heat Exchangers.
Copper Brazed Heat Exchangers
Our Copper Brazed Heat Exchangers are manufactured using stainless steel plates and copper brazed in a furnace. This results in a turbulent flow pattern and allows for an extremely high heat transfer coefficient.
- HVAC heating and cooling
- process heating and cooling
- oil heating and cooling
- solar heating
- district heating
- domestic water heating
Fusion Brazed Heat Exchangers
Our Fusion Brazed Heat Exchangers (FB-series) are manufactured using corrugated stainless steel plates instead of copper, a frame plate and a pressure plate. Our FB series heat exchangers are hygienic, resistant to corrosion, recyclable, and can withstand temperatures of up to 550˚C (1,020˚F).
- suitable for chlorine pools, spas and hot tubs only
- ideal for geothermal, solar and condensing low temperature boilers
- heat recovery in commercial pools
