Heat Exchangers

Heat exchangers transfer heat between various fluids (gas or liquid) without them mixing or coming in direct contact with each other. Therefore, these devices can move heat without transferring the gas or liquid that carried the heat. Heat exchangers can help cool or heat buildings and they can also enable machines and engines to work more efficiently too. There are several kinds of heat exchangers, but they all to the same job—transfer heat from one fluid to another one. However, they work in different ways.

Alternative Heating and Supplies carries all types of heat exchangers, including shell and tube heat exchangers, plate exchangers, and water to air heat exchangers. Shell and tube heat exchangers are useful for applications that have high flow rates, pressure, and temperature loads. They also are recommended if you need to handle contaminated liquids. Whereas, a plate exchanger (including a brazed plate heat exchanger), contains corrugated plates that are fastened and mounted together in a frame. They are perfect for applications where pressure and temperature demands are not high, and where there is not a lot of build up or particle debris within the fluid. Finally, water to air heat exchangers transfer hot water through copper tubes. They have high-density aluminum fins with minimal flow resistance, and you typically use them in outdoor boiler applications.

Additionally, Alternative Heating and Supplies has a selection of sidearm water heaters and tube heat exchangers too. So, no matter what you need a heat exchanger for, Alternative Heating and Supplies is here to help you choose the right one to fit your needs.
