Case stories

UMASS Albert Sherman Center

When the University of Massachusetts Medical School unveiled its $400-million, state-of-the-art Albert Sherman Center in early 2013 on its Worcester, MA, campus, it was said that it would allow the school to “enter a new era of biomedical research, medical education and campus collaboration.” Collaboration would also play a prominent role in how the 11-story, 512,000-square-foot building would be cooled during the warm and humid summers that are quite common locally.

Making Montpelier more manageable

Vermont capital’s District Energy system has been a resounding success with the aid of SWEP BPHEs.

Tele2 Arena

Powerful technology for a modern venue.

The awarded-winning Tele2 Arena in the Swedish capital of Stockholm can easily host both major concerts and all kinds of sports competitions. Powerful brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHEs) from SWEP allow for a swift and reliable laying of good-quality ice for winter sports events.

Efficient cooling of Infosys’ Data Center

A large Data Center needs a powerful cooling solution. Infosys Technologies Ltd., a leading IT company with its headquarters in Bangalore, India, wanted a cost-efficient solution with high efficiency. They opted for a SWEP brazed plate heat exchanger (BPHE), due to its additional advantage of having a low carbon footprint.

BPHEs in wind power stations

Wind power is one of the most cost-effective and rapidly growing renewable energy technologies available.

UK supermarket cuts carbon footprint through innovative technology

Supermarket chain Sainsbury has managed to heavily reduce the carbon footprint of a heating and cooling installation at its 9,300 square meter supermarket in Crayford, Kent, in the UK. This has been done by using innovative technologies combined with an intelligent energy management system.

Solar heating

Modern solar collectors are more efficient than ever. Furthermore, the possibility of using absorptive surfaces in colors other than black has helped architects to identify new creative opportunities for solar collectors.

Tap water with extreme hardness

Ringsjön is a lake in southern Sweden from which tap water is drawn. The very hard water (dH 11) imposes severe stress on the equipment used. After 4-6 years' operation, four SWEP heat exchangers used for heating the tap water were brought to SWEP’s laboratory for testing. 

Clean power when ORC system recovers waste heat

An affordable and sustainable supply of energy is the key to modern society as well as global economy.

High capacity industrial chillers no challenge for SWEP BHPEs

Industrial chillers come in a variety of sizes and models. Traditionally, shell & tube heat exchangers have been used for high capacity chillers, but SWEP BHPEs are changing that picture. Powerful yet small, they fit perfectly into most industrial applications.

Efficiently heating a national building in Beijing, China

The national building, which is one of the largest hall structures in the world , needed a reliable and efficient solution for space heating and hot tap water.

Dutch university building gets pioneering climate system

The stunning new building for the Centre for Life Science at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands will boast a revolutionary climate system reducing the energy used for heating and cooling by 60%.
