M equals optimum with the Brazed Plate corrugation

Refrigeration, air conditioning technology, heat pumps and hot water systems are set to benefit from Kelvion’s new plate corrugation for its largest Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger series, GB 1000. Called the M-corrugation, which stands for medium, it fits between the H version for maximum specific performance and the L version for low-pressure losses. 
The new plate is the ideal compromise for many applications: the M corrugation produces a large “thermal length”, so that upcoming heat quantities can be transferred even at the slightest temperature differences. However, it causes lower pressure losses than the H version.
On the other hand, Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers with M-corrugation are more powerful than the same size with L-corrugation. The Kelvion GB 1000M is therefore suited to applications in building services, efficient data center air conditioning or refrigeration systems.
The M-corrugation makes it possible to increase the yield of solar thermal systems during seasonal changes, without requiring a high pump capacity. The plate corrugation also allows the resource-saving operation of heat pumps or refrigeration systems with small temperature differences between the media or optimizes the transfer of heat in low-temperature heating systems.
