Heat Recovery

Heat in the form of vapor, hot water or hot air is a result of almost any production cycle, but it does not have to go to waste. With a BPHE from SWEP, you can achieve efficient heat recovery in a number of applications.

Energy prices will continue to rise while industries around the world are facing ever more stringent targets with the aim to reduce CO2 emissions. Today, global industry consumes a vast amount of energy and the most problematic thing is that as much as half of it is wasted due to the inefficiency and complexity in the recovery of low grade energy. Heat in the form of vapor, hot water or hot air is a result of almost any production cycle, but it does not have to go to waste. With smarter systems, it can be recovered and reused for other purposes, contributing to the reduction of carbon emissions and to significant cost savings for both producers and end users.

The dominating heat recovery solution so far has been gasketed heat exchangers that require a lot of space and regular maintenance. Brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHEs) offer the same power, but are substantially more compact and next to maintenance-free. With a BPHE from SWEP, you can achieve efficient heat recovery in a number of applications:
