AEL has developed a free tool to help specifiers when it comes to selecting the right system and getting an instant quotation for that system.
Before using a plate heat exchanger sizing calculator the principle that heat will always leave the warmer fluid and that heat energy will be transferred to the colder fluid must be understood.
With a plate type heat exchanger, the heat will instantaneously pass through the plates that separates the hot and cold fluid heating up the colder fluid.
Heat will always be transferred from a hot medium to a cold medium and there must always be a temperature difference between the fluids. The heat lost by the hot fluid will be equal to the amount of heat gained by the cold fluid except for standing thermal losses that are usually minimal.
AEL have already standardised a large selection of heat exchanger duties and created tailored calculators:
How to use the AEL plate heat exchanger sizing calculator:
NOTE: Altering the KW required will change the duties for each type of installation shown in the filter apart from the “Swimming Pool” heat exchangers where the pool volume is changed instead of the KW.
