Press Release Summary:
Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers (BPHEs), certified by Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI), are designed to efficiently utilize energy, material, and space. Each BPHE consists of corrugated plates that create complex channels through which hot medium and cold medium can be distributed. Cover plate number, type, and configuration can be varied to achieve required thermal properties. Efficiency, compactness, andÂ construction promote reliability and reduce maintenance.

SWEP Introduces First AHRI Certified® Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers
SWEP is the first company to provide Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers (BPHEs) certified by the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI). Testing performed by their contracted laboratories verify that product performance is according to specified ratings. This offers additional security when selecting BPHEs for HVAC installations.
Brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHEs) are quickly winning ground thanks to high efficiency, compact design, and a robust construction which improves reliability and reduces maintenance. Designed to make the most efficient use of energy, material, and space, they provide unparalleled performance at the lowest life-cycle cost. SWEP BPHEs are well-proven in millions of installations worldwide, and are now also the first to be certified by AHRI.
AHRI’s certification programs are well-recognized as a performance verifier for heating, air conditioning, and commercial refrigeration equipment. The products undergo testing by independent laboratories under contract to AHRI, and are evaluated using the appropriate industry standard to certify that published performance ratings are accurate. This allows buyers to make a fair comparison when selecting products for their HVAC installations.

About brazed plate heat exchangers
A brazed plate heat exchanger consists of corrugated plates, combined to create complex channels through which a hot medium and a cold medium can be distributed. The media flow in separate circuits but come into close proximity, allowing heat to be transferred from one to the other with very high efficiency. The number, type, and configuration of the cover plates can be varied to achieve the required thermal properties.
AHRI Certified® is the trusted mark of performance assurance for heating, air conditioning, water heating, and commercial refrigeration equipment. Products earning the mark undergo rigorous, independent annual evaluation to ensure that they perform according to the manufacturers’ published claims. Certifying equipment and component performance allows consumers to compare products based on independently verified performance ratings.
