What is a plate heat exchanger used for?

1.Central heating

The plate heat exchanger has the characteristics of compact structure, simple operation and maintenance, high heat transfer efficiency,etc. It has become the first heat exchange product of heat exchange station in urban central heating project, suitable for water-water heat exchange system, steam-water heat exchange. The system and domestic hot water supply system play an important role in rationally distributing heat energy and improving thermal management.

2. Air conditioning system

Plate heat exchangers are widely used for heat exchange of chilled water in air conditioning systems. Plate heat exchangers can be installed between the cooling tower and the condenser.It’s near the condenser to function as a condenser to prevent corrosion or blockage of equipment. The transition season saves the operating hours of the chillers.

3:.Pressure blocker for high-rise buildings

In high-rise buildings, HVAC systems that use water, glycol as heat exchange media often have extremely high static pressure. Plate heat exchangers are used as pressure blockers to decompose higher static pressure into a small part of the pressure, which reduces the pressure requirements of the system on pumps, valves, hot and cold water units, saving equipment investment costs and operating costs.

4.Ice storage system

The ice storage system using the plate heat exchanger plays a role in regulating the peak and valley filling of the power grid. The chiller is used for cooling at night, and ice is stored in the ice storage tank to meet the demand for the next day's cooling capacity, and the peak load of the air conditioner is reduced, thereby effectively saving energy and saving operating costs.
