Compact Heat Exchangers

request quote >>
The purpose of heat exchangers is to transfer heat from one fluid (either gas or liquid) to another. Compact heat exchangers (CHEs) have a significantly greater surface area per unit volume. Than more conventional types of heat exchanger. For the purposes of the ECA Scheme. A CHE is defined as a heat exchanger with a surface to volume ratio of > 200m2/m3.

Compact heat exchangers characterized by high surface area per unit volume. Which can result in  higher efficiency. than conventional heat exchangers, In a significantly smaller volume (typically Compact heat exchangers can achieve efficiencies of over 95% cf. 80% for non-compact heat exchangers). Compact heat exchangers transfer more energy in a cost-effective manner than other heat exchangers and savemore energy when compared to standard technology.
