It would seem that any heating system can perfectly do without a heat exchanger, even when producing hot water. The question of the direct withdrawal of hot water from the heating system is complex, so let’s look at it a little later. Now let’s figure out the question, why is there a heat exchanger necessary in the heating system?
Does every heating system have a heat exchanger?
In the heating circuit, not only water can be used as a heat carrier. If no one thinks of taking water directly from heating systems, this will cost him very expensive. This is where the microchannel heat exchanger comes to the rescue, which is installed in the heating system and divides it into two parts, the heating system from the supplier to the consumer and of the consumer himself.
Heating exchangers are more expensive than electric and gas counterparts, and their installation is associated with some difficulties. However, the rise in energy prices, the protracted crisis, and the increasing technical literacy of the owners of suburban housing are slowly increasing the demand for this type of water heaters, because they have many advantages.
Construction of plate heat exchanger
At the heart of any plate heat exchanger is a set of plates perforated in a special way by stamping to increase the heat exchange area and form channels through which water moves. Where to install such a heat exchanger in a heating or hot water supply system does not matter, only the schemes of block heat points and the power for which the plate heat exchangers are designed differently.
It is very easy to select and manufacture a plate heat exchanger, as well as then increase or decrease its power, unless, of course, your heat exchanger is collapsible, and not brazed.
