Brazed Heat Exchangers

Compact, leak-tight, and highly efficient

WCR Brazed Heat Exchanger



The size of the WCR brazed heat exchanger ranges anywhere from 50% to 80% smaller than other types of heat exchangers on the market today. It requires less floor space due to the high thermal efficiency of the stainless steel. And, because its plates are brazed together at high temperatures, it allows the heat exchanger to be compact, leak-tight, and rugged. That’s the kind of durability and efficiency that helps set the WCR brand apart.
