Efficient heat recovery in industrial applications by using brazed plate heat exchanger technology

Achieve significant cost savings while lowering CO2 emissions.
Today, global industry consumes a vast amount of energy. The biggest challenge is that as much as half of it is wasted due to the inefficient and complicated 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 primary heat recovery solution in industry to date has been gasketed heat exchangers. It is widely known that these require a lot of space and regular maintenance, and have high lifecycle costs. Brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHEs), however, offer the same power but are substantially more compact and are virtually maintenance-free, reducing their lifecycle costs.
