The varied hvac market

The HVAC market is characterised by high growth and diverse requirements. Heating and cooling systems are coming under increasing pressure to deliver greater efficiencies owing to the different regulations and  support programs and taking account of constantly rising energy costs. At the same time, tight deadlines and competitive pressure are driving the need for cost-effective solutions and fast delivery times. Plate heat exchangers play a key role in this regard. This flexible apparatuses are highly versatile and among the most cost-effective, reliable and space-saving heat exchangers.

Plate heat exchangers excel in HVAC applications due to their compact design and exceptional heat transfer capabilities. Whether it’s heating, cooling, or heat recovery, these innovative devices deliver optimal performance while maximizing energy efficiency.

One of the key advantages of plate heat exchangers is their ability to recover and reuse heat energy. In HVAC systems, plate heat exchangers capture waste heat from exhaust air and transfer it to incoming fresh air or water, significantly reducing energy consumption and operating costs.

Moreover, plate heat exchangers are highly adaptable to various HVAC configurations and requirements. They can be customized to accommodate different fluid types, temperatures, and flow rates, making them suitable for a wide range of residential, commercial, and industrial applications.

At Thermowave, we specialize in providing premium plate heat exchangers tailored to the unique needs of the HVAC market. Our products are engineered to deliver superior performance, reliability, and energy efficiency, helping you achieve your sustainability goals while enhancing indoor comfort.

Separation of different medias is necessary in many applications in order to meet the different requirements with respect to use of the media and the corresponding material resistance. Examples of this include the separation of cooling media with high concentration of chloride, such as river or lake water, from the process media or domestic water heating.

thermowave fulfils these requirements thanks to the proven construction and optimal design in terms of pressure drop and heat transfer. Furthermore, a range of highly resistant plate and gasket materials are available.


The use of process engine, turbine or sewage waste heat are just some examples of the options of heat recovery. This energy is then fed back into the corresponding heat processes. In this context also, thermowave plates offer an ideal way of utilizing energy with the option of special circuit designs, such as block circuits and multiple pass circuits.


A plate heat exchanger is generally used for connecting dry coolers and cooling units to a consumer circuit. The advantages of free cooling, such as energy savings, longer service life of the cooling unit and high operational reliability, are brought to bear here.

Thanks to the highly efficient thermowave heat exchanger plates, and especially the Powerline plates, temperature differences of up to 1K can be realised and the concept of free cooling thereby utilised in full.


Distric heating and cooling are particularly advantageous when decentralised production of this energy is not possible or does not make sense. This applies for example for use of regenerative energies such as biomass and geothermal or use of waste heat from engines in large CHP (combined heat and power) systems.

thermowave plate heat exchangers provide for efficient distribution of energy in this case also owing to small temperature differences. Yet another example of the use of thermowave plate heat exchangers for generating energy is in ammonia refrigeration systems or power plants.



Evaporators are key components of re-frigeration systems. Depending on your requirements, thermowave plate heat exchangers can be designed as gravity eva-porators, pump mode evaporators or dry expansion mode evaporators.
The variability of our plate structures de- livers optimal performance, footprint and price for each of these applications.

thermowave evaporators are used primarily with natural coolants, but are also suited for synthetic refrigerants. Our thermoli-nePlus series with operating pressures of up to 63 bar is particularly suited for CO2 applications.
