What is a brazed plate heat exchanger?

- Jun 01, 2018-

The brazd plate heat exchanger is a new type of high efficiency heat exchanger which is formed by a series of metal plates with certain corrugated shape after brazing

Thin rectangular channels are formed between the various plates for heat exchange through the plates

Compared with the conventional shell-and-tube heat exchanger, the heat transfer coefficient is much higher under the same flow resistance and pump power consumption, and there is a tendency to replace the shell-and-tube heat exchanger within the applicable range.


a. Refrigeration: used as condenser and evaporator

b. HVAC:  intermediate heat exchangers used in conjunction with boilers, intermediate heat exchangers in high-rise buildings, etc

c. Chemical industry: pure alkali industry, synthetic ammonia, alcohol fermentation, resin synthesis cooling, etc

d. Metallurgical industry: aluminate mother liquor heating or cooling, steelmaking process cooling

e. Mechanical industry: all kinds of quenching liquid cooling, reducer lubricating oil cooling, etc

f. Power industry: high voltage transformer oil cooling, generator bearing oil cooling, etc

g. Papermaking industry: bleaching process heat recovery, heating slurry, etc

h. Textile industry: viscose silk alkaline solution cooling, boiling nitrifying fiber cooling

i. Food industry: juice sterilization cooling, animal and vegetable oil heating cooling

j. Oil technology: soap base drying under normal pressure, heating or cooling various process liquid

k. Central heating: heat the waste heat area of the thermal power plant, heat bath water

l. Others: oil, medicine, ships, desalination of sea water, geothermal utilization
