ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) technology made possible by SWEP brazed plate heat exchangers is being used in Sweden to transform waste heat into renewable electricity. This high efficiency and low maintenance way to produce sustainable electricity is being adopted by district heating systems around the world. Read how Ronneby Municipality put this innovative technology to use.read full business practice
In a project involving ACCIONA and KEROS CERAMICA, RANK has worked with SWEP to implement a heat recovery solution for electricity power generation. ORC RANK equipment capacities range from 2 to 100 kWe. The activation range for the low-temperature equipment starts at just 85 °C.SWEP's heat exchangers are installed as economizers, evaporators and condensers.read full business practice
