What is a brazed plate heat exchanger?

  Brazed plate heat exchanger is a new type of high efficiency heat exchanger which is brazed by a series of metal sheets with a certain corrugated shape. A thin rectangular channel is formed between the various sheets, and heat is exchanged 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.
