What happened to all that sticky oil?
Most travelers on passenger ships will probably never have the chance to see the impressive machinery needed to run the ship. To keep the machinery going, the ship needs different kinds of oils to work properly. However, fuel oil is not directly usable when delivered to the ship, because the water it contains must be removed first. This separation process would not work unless the oil viscosity was lowered using a SWEP brazed plate heat exchanger.
Small details count on the high seas
Designing and constructing marine engines is one of the biggest challenges a manufacturer can face. As well as meeting tough demands for accessibility and output, the engines must be able to withstand huge stresses, depending on the load and climatic conditions. And space is a critical variable — the more compact the engine, the more space there is for cargo, and the simpler it is to carry out maintenance.
Turkey promotes a more sustainable society
Turkey is currently experiencing an increase in population combined with an urbanization rate that has risen rapidly, from 53% in 1990 to 75% in 2008. New buildings are constantly being erected in urban areas, and it is necessary to find cost-effective ways to save energy.

Brazed plate heat exchangers making pet bottles
The soft drinks industry was the main driving force behind the development of the polyethylene terephthalate bottle (PET). Before 1960, almost all carbonated soft drinks were packaged in small returnable glass bottles. These have now been almost completely replaced with PET bottles, which are light, robust and reusable.
Brazed plate heat exchangers making chocolate
Throughout the world, much attention has been paid to pneumatic transport with its many possibilities and advantages.
Environmental reasons important to luxury segment
Discussions about future transportation, and the way we are going to power our vehicles, seem to be ubiquitous these days. In these discussions, the fuel cell and hydrogen have a major impact. The BMW Hydrogen 7 – the world's first hydrogen-drive luxury performance car – showed at the Los Angeles International Auto Show.
District energy for a whole new town
Anting New Town is part of Shanghai's One City, Nine Towns plan. Designed to accommodate a population of 50,000, it has been built in a modern European style, with a comprehensive district energy system to match.
SWEP and Ecogetec provide efficient heating to Tauá resort in Brazil
Ecogetec is a Brazilian company that creates technology that transforms biomass into heat for pool and tap water for hotels, motels, industries, hospitals and clubs. When it came to a project involving providing a more efficient heating solution at Tauá Resort in Brazil, Ecogetec chose SWEP as their preferred heat transfer partner. The project called for (46) SWEP brazed plate heat exchangers to be installed in different locations around the resort.
