Heat exchangers are used for many different purposes in a greenhouse. Any time you need to heat a water supply with your boiler system but need to keep the two separated a heat exchanger is the answer.
Some examples are:
- Irrigation water pre-heat
- Heating of growing pools
- Potable hot water for bathrooms and lunchrooms
- Converting steam to a hot water heating system
We provide heat exchangers in three styles:
Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers:
These are low cost high efficient units suitable for all hot water boiler applications. Because of the design of this type of heat exchanger it offers higher heat transfer in a smaller package resulting in a more compact unit.
Plate and Frame Heat Exchangers:
These are similar in design to the brazed plate units except plates are mounted on a frame and bolted together. These units are expandable and can be changed to meet the needs of new load requirements by adding or subtracting plates.
Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers:
Typically we use these when we are required to use steam to supply heat to a hot water system. The heat exchanger consists of an outer shell that contains a series of smaller tubes inside. Steam is fed into the outer shell while cool water is fed into the smaller tubes causing the water to absorb heat.
