38Space & Weight Comparison PHE’s vs. S&T’s for Identical Duties PHE S&TTotal 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
