SWEP, part of global manufacturer Dover, announced the launch of the BX4T brazed plate heat exchanger (BPHE), the latest addition to the B4 sized range for the refrigeration market. The BX4Ts more compact design makes it suitable for variable refrigerant flow (VRF), heat pumps and condensing units.
X-plates on the front and back of the unit give it structural stability while also serving as active heat transfer plates, thus improving heat exchange efficiency. This All-Active plate pack maximizes the material utilization of the product, making it a competitive choice for demanding applications and narrow temperature approaches.
Stefano Bellada, SWEP Segment Manager, Refrigeration & AC: The new BX4T provides high economizer performance, especially in condensing units with EVI-technology. It is also small, yet flexible, which makes it a good selection for economizer applications focusing on VRF and heat pumps. This innovative BPHE is also effective in reducing refrigerant hold-up volume, and its mechanical design makes it suitable for high-pressure refrigerants such as R410A and R32.
The BX4T is one of the newest models to join SWEPs full range of BPHEs engineered to deliver high COP and low life-cycle cost. The segment includes the supermarket and transport application areas.
