PHE Units are used in petroleum refinement, power generation HVAC distribution, food & beverage processing, and chemical processing industries. While the majority of our PHE Units customers are from the HVAC sector (where SmartHeat PHE Units have been widely recognized as the leading product in the market), PHE Units use can be modified for use in other industries as well.

Advantages of SmartHeat's PHE Units:
Our compact PHE Units are specially designed for use in district heating and HVAC distribution systems and can significantly reduce heat loss in transfer;
Our compact PHE Units take far less space than shell and tube heat exchangers of equivalent capacity, weigh much less and produce higher energy savings due to higher heat transfer coefficients;
Heavy turbulence and counter-flow principle enable an efficient heat transfer;
Heat transfer and pressure drop can be precisely regulated;
Can be customized to fit a variety of industry applications.
PHE Units are constructed by integrating PHEs with various pumps, temperature sensors, valves, and electronic controlling instruments to form a "unit" which is then often used along with other units to form a "PHE network".
