Swedish heat exchanger manufacturer SWEP has received the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute’s (AHRI) Certification Performance Award for its brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHEs).
The award recognizes SWEP’s test success rates for the third consecutive year, according to a press release published by SWEP on June 2.
SWEP manufactures brazed plate heat exchangers for HVAC and industrial refrigeration applications. The company’s portfolio includes heat exchangers for transcritical CO2 applications with pressures up to 140bar. SWEP also manufactures products for ammonia refrigeration.
To receive an AHRI Performance Award, a company has its products tested by independent laboratories using industry standards to certify that the manufacturers’ published performance ratings are accurate.
“The entire SWEP team focuses their efforts on maintaining the highest standards when developing and producing BPHEs in order to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations,” said Ulrika Nordqvist, President of SWEP. “This award recognizes our team’s hard work and commitment to delivering quality products that our customers can trust.”
“Having the AHRI Certification is an important condition for businesses with commercial and residential water-to-water applications, primarily in the U.S. and Canada,” SWEP said in its statement.
The laboratories appointed by AHRI tested 15 products from SWEP from 2018 to 2020, with all the products achieving a 100% success rate, SWEP said. There are now a total of 46 brazed plate heat exchangers from SWEP that have achieved AHRI certifications.
“The AHRI certification tests also provide SWEP with validation of SWEP’s internal process for SSP calibration and assurance that the company’s measurements and calculations are accurate compared to tests of randomly selected BPHEs,” SWEP said.
SWEP is a part of the Dover Group of companies. Dover manufactures equipment and components, consumable supplies, aftermarket parts, software and digital solutions, and support services for the refrigeration industry through its Refrigeration and Food Equipment segment.
