SWEP targets corrosion, fouling and scaling
SWEP has launched a new range of brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHE) that keep tap water applications running efficiently for longer.
This is achieved with SWEP Sealix coating, a revolutionary SiO₂-based thin-film technology that increases BPHE corrosion resistance, protects against corrosion, fouling and scaling and increases durability. The protective Sealix layer is applied to all inner surfaces of the heat exchangers in most of the HIUs and substations that encounter drinking water, to increase the lifetime and the operational safety of the entire system. This in turn reduces maintenance costs and unplanned downtime. The innovative self-cleaning coating minimises deposit formation and prevents contamination while protecting the surface.
SiO₂-based coating is recognized worldwide and approved by the United States Food and Drug administration, the European Food Safety Authority and the Japan Inspection Association of Food & Industry Environment.
