Claiming that they were highly efficient heat pumps and refrigeration systems with smaller footprint and lower pressure drop, GEA introduced ConBraze at Chillventa late last year. They are slated to be in the market this year.

The manufacturer lists the following product features and advantages:

  • ConBraze is designed for use as an evaporator, economiser, or condenser with the refrigerants R410A or CO2.
  • It was developed on the basis of the proven 500 Range, but essentially differs from this range by its innovative plate design.
  • In comparison to previous heat exchangers, the new model features a more compact design, requires less material, needs a smaller filling amount of refrigerant, and therefore offers a cost advantage over conventional heat exchangers.
  • The hydraulically optimised channel geometry and the optimally adjusted asymmetry relationships enable it to achieve the best possible optimal heat exchange with optimal flow relationships.
  • Again, thanks to its adjustable channel geometry, it is possible to optimally match the heat exchanger to plant layout.
  • It will initially come in a version for a maximum of 45 bar system pressure, but there will be further design developments in asymmetrical areas of operation.
