Uniflow separation technology can easily be combined with plate heat exchangers to create a chiller. For the Unilaval system, the design of the vessel was adapted to take into account the connection to the heat exchangers. With this, the separator is positioned next to, or possibly between, a number of plate heat exchangers.
This combination, which is particularly easy to control, works with an exceptionally low refrigerant charge, has a low overall height and has a much higher partial load COP of approximately 7% because the exchanger is not operating fully charged.
Unilaval is available in standard sizes but larger or adapted designs can also be produced.calculate
