Advantages of Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger

  • High heat transfer performance due to its unique herringbone plates pattern.
  • Able to operate at higher temperature and pressure due to its tough gasket-less brazed structure which enables tight sealing performance.
  • Compact and light with the use of thinner materials to build.
Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger Working Principle

How Does a Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger Work?

The fluid flow and movement is similar to plate heat exchanger (PHE). However, fluid inside BHE would not have contact with any gasket sealing material. Therefore, lower or higher fluid temperature can be operate inside the BHE. The hot fluid and cold fluid flow in alternate directions through the heat transfer plates.

Shell and tube heat exchanger
Product Name
  • Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger
  • Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger
Efficiency
  • High thermal efficiency with overall U value of 4,000 to 8,000 W/m²°C
  • Low Efficiency. Shell and tube heat exchanger having LMTD value from 3°C to 5°C(5°F to 10°F)
Cost
  • Lower capital costs, BHE is compact and light and has small footprint.
  • Higher capital costs, shell and tube exchanger is heavier and larger, used more floor space when installed.
Size
  • Fewer materials and parts are used, which resulted in reduction of overall size compared to shell and tube heat exchanger.
  • With same specification, shell and tube exchangers required 4 times the size of a brazed heat exchanger.
Maintenance
  • Maintenance is fairly easy. Can be clean with a quick chemical clean-in-place method.
  • Cleaning and maintenance are much more complicated. Tubes are intertwined inside the shell.
