Minimum operating temperature -265° F, Maximum temperature 392° F. The feed and return is 1 ¼ ” MPT. How to buy a brazed plate heat exchanger: 1. Length and Width. Sizing is not just about the amount of plates, but also the area for heat transfer! Ours are 12 inches long. 2. Port sizing. Most furnaces use 1″ tubing, so be sure to don’t seem to be buying 3/4″ ports, as this will decrease water drift! Ours are 1 ¼ inch! They are able to be reduced down to fit your 1″ tubing. 3. Proper sizing. If there is any question, ALWAYS buy the next size larger. It is all the time better to have more heat, than not enough! Here is a guide that will help you: A. 10 plates are used for domestic hot water or small in-floor heating applications of less than 1100 sq ft. B. 20 Plates are used for smaller homes from 1100 – 2500 sq ft. C. 40 Plates are used for larger homes from 2500 – 4500 sq. ft. D. 70 Plates are used for areas 5000 – 7000 sq ft.
