Cooling towers are usually classified in the following three ways:
- Fan type
- Air flow direction
- Water Circuit
In this blog we have tried to briefly cover these three sets of classifications, their applications and pros & cons of each type of Cooling Tower.

Hello Sunshine! Here at HEWA we love sunny days, primarily because it means plenty of solar gain on our 400 125W panels!

Ask yourself this, “What commitment is your current supplier making to reduce their carbon footprint?
Meet Rod, a now happy octopus fisherman from Busselton Western Australia. HEWA recently received a distressed phone call from Rod who had recently dropped 1200 occy traps and suffered engine PHE problems on the return trip home. Rod was battling to find parts and his biggest fear was the octopuses starving to death in their traps! HEWA’s experts identified the rare part type and could immediately supply getting Rod back on the water within days, not weeks. Does your current provider have you covered for unforseen circumstances?

Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers (BPHE’s) are among the most efficient heat exchangers on the market.
On an upcoming project in Perth’s CBD, a client has decided to sou to source BPHE’s as they occupied 20% less space than a traditional plate & gasket heat exchanger.
BPHE’s traditionally are thin stainless plates with narrower channels (giving a higher heat transfer co-efficient), pressed together with copper sheet and brazed in an autoclave at extreme temperatures.
BPHE’s are advantageous as they can operate at higher temps and pressures than plate and gasket and have a smaller footprint. They do however require very clean liquids passing through them due to limitations in serviceability as they cannot be pulled apart.
Heat Exchangers WA are delighted to supply two of our biggest BPHE’s to date in a relatively small market such as Perth.
