36 Semi-Welded PHE Compact Lightweight Low fouling, turbulent flow
High heat transfer rates Low hold-up volume Low environmental impact Economical Low maintenance Freezing causes no damage Flexible design, add/remove area AISI316 & Titanium as standard

37 Semi-Welded PHE Installations
Breweries Beverage Production Wine Production Bakeries Meat Processing Poultry Processing Cold Storage Humidity Control Ice Rinks Air Conditioning CO2 Cascade Heat Recovery

38 Space & Weight Comparison PHE’s vs. S&T’s for Identical Duties
PHE S&T Total weight, drained (tons) Total weight, operating (tons) The differences in footprint are depicted here. The footprint of PHE’s for the same duty is drastically less than S&T’s. The total amount of refrigerant is also significantly less – reducing hold-up volume and shrinking receiver requirements. These aspects directly affect your ability to design for close approaches to help with the system’s life cycle energy costs. Maintenance area
