The brazed plate heat exchanger is made of a series of panels, slightly different, with areas that allow for proper flow of heat exchange. These devices transfer heat from one medium to another avoiding the contact between the two media. They are widely used in refrigerators or air conditioning systems.
For the home, the brazed plate heat exchangers are the most in style choice. You can find them in your refrigerator or air conditioner they are small machines that keep everything working. This heat exchanger is smaller than the shell and tube model and infinitely more effective, because of the brazing technology. Advanced brazing is a way of processing the metal that ensures the proper operation of the heat exchanger.
To mount the heat exchanger, you will need to identify the red label that indicates the primary side. Although it can be mounted in any position, the vertical position ensures the best performance. Bracketed support or mounting on a console is highly recommended. The heat exchanger should not be allowed to vibrate. The connectors used should be flexible, and unions should not be too tight over the threaded connections, in order to avoid high-pressure build-ups.
Make sure there are safety valves all over the adjacent pipe work. To check whether the pipe work is installed properly, try filling up the circuit with water to see if there are any leaks. Keep in mind that you should never weld ant connections near the exchanger or on top of it.

Proper install and cleanliness are crucial if you want to extend the life of your heat exchanger. Special cleaning fluids exist, and they will remove any fouling from the heat exchanger. This fluid is gentle, it is an effective and safe choice for most devices, and should be used regularly.
