SWEP introduces an innovative concept Hypertwain
SWEP's Hypertwain is a revolutionary new technology that optimizes both cooling and heating and keeps the need for space, electricity and refrigerants to a bare minimum. Hypertwain is the answer to the rising demand for comfortable indoor climate – and the absolute necessity of using fewer resources.
Unlike a standard BPHE, Hypertwain features an integrated suction gas heat exchanger (“iSGHX”) that improves the evaporator performance. This leads to Hypertwain’s main benefit which is allowing OEMs to design and bring products to market with unrivalled seasonal efficiency in both heating and cooling mode, while additional benefits are reduced refrigerant charge and footprint. The integrated iSGHX also enables control stability compared with an external SGHX. In addition, Hypertwain also improves freeze resistance and reduces water pressure drop.
SWEP is now launching its first brazed plate heat exchanger (BPHE) based on its novel Hypertwain technology. It’s called the FTW250AS and primarily targets reversible chillers and heat pumps.
Hypertwain integrates several functions critical for evaporator and condenser duties in chiller and heat pump applications. The FTW250AS covers a capacity span up to around 70 USRt while the Hypertwain platform is being extended with additional BPHEs aiming for capacities up to 200 USRt with both single and dual circuit. Focus refrigerants are all high-pressure refrigerants such as R32, R410A, R454B, R452B, as well as being verified for R290 (Propane)
