Counter-flow arrangement for maximal heat transfer and efficiency in asymmetrical applications, normally gas-to-liquid.
Compact is made in stainless steel 316L/1.4404 with copper and in most cases nickel as optional brazing material. The plates are stacked together creating alternating high-volume flow channels (side B, with low pressure drop) and lower-volume flow channels (side A, with higher pressure drop).
All connections are integrated into the heat exchanger. No outside housing or casing is required.
Compact is complete with a condensate connection enabling condensate in the gas medium in side B to drain easily from the heat exchanger.
Compact has an even higher thermal efficiency than Cross due to its compact design and large heat transfer surface.The thermal efficiency for the gas side can often exceed 95 %.
The vacuum-brazing process creates a very large number of brazed contact points between each plate, delivering superior mechanical strength.
Compact is the perfect solution for high-pressure gas applications (up to 25 bar in some versions).
Both vertical and horizontal gas flow is possible with Compact.

After many years’ experience, engineers at Airec have gained considerable expertise in the design, manufacture, and application of plate heat exchangers for most gas media. We also have resources for the development, design, and performance calculation of completely new products in the gas heat exchanger field.
Our business mission is simple and clear: To develop and manufacture gas heat exchangers that give customers a significant competitive edge when using our products in their systems.
The competitive advantages we offer are dramatic thanks to compact, efficient, and cost-effective heat exchangers unique to Airec. We are a young but strong company that is not subject to the limitations of old technology. We do not follow by imitating others, but lead through creativity and innovation to produce elegant technical solutions for our highly valued customers.
Airec has very long global experience in superior and new plate heat exchangers for highly efficient and compact gas-to-liquid heat transfers applications.
Our know-how includes the latest software technology for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and finite element method (FEM) to optimize the design process.
Airec has a successful record and long experience in joint development projects with global customers and partners, optimizing designs and production systems for maximum customer value with completely new plate heat exchanger solutions and designs.
Half our employees are R&D engineers with unique competence in heat transfer, flow dynamics, material technology, software design-support technologies, tool design, and prototype production.
Their competence is often utilized in jointdevelopment projects with leading global companies to integrate Airec technology into their products and systems.
To serve our customers and partners have we optimized several design tools in the optimizing process: CFD-analysis, FEM-modelling, heat transfer analysis, chemical and material analysis, modelling, design and building of plate stamping tools; both for prototype testing and for normal production.
