Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers available in three sizes. Used for camping showers, cooling engines & outboards, biofuel and vegetable oil conversions, industrial applications.
Ideal for use in camping showers, heating vegetable oils and biodiesel for SVO and biofuel conversions. Can be used for cooling applications as well including cooling boat engines / motors. Suitable for a wide range of fluids and applications.
Extremely good heat transfer rates - Incorporates stainless steel plates which have high heat conductivity and a large heat transfer surface area. These heat exchangers can be used in co and counter-current heat exchange applications.
Scintex heat exchangers come with easy to use 1/2" BSP female threaded inlets and outlets which will accept standard pipe fittings. If you require any hose or fittings for your application Scintex can supply this with your heat exchanger. The heat exchangers are also easy to mount with 2x M8 threaded bolts secured to the top plate. Simply use two u-brackets to secure the heat exchanger.

Camping showers - The 30 Plate is sufficient for camping showers. If you would like hotter water for washing dishes then the 60 Plate is better suited.
Boat outboard & other engine cooling applications - For any engine or outboard cooling applications Scintex recommends the use of a 60 Plate heat exchanger.
Onboard SVO / WVO fuel conversions - For on vehicle heating of vegetable oils or biodiesel the 10 Plate heat exchanger is sufficient.
Still to test efficacy/efficiency of the unit, but very well constructed and shipping time was quick. Would recommend.
I set this heat exchanger on the heater circuit inside the bonnet.
I measure the power with my heater in the cab positionned on heating and flowing air.
I set an arduino to control the temperature. In 15 minutes (from starting a cold engine in goulburn and then driving at 80km on a road) my 60 litre tank went from 9 degre to 45 degre. You can double check - it means that there is a 15kW heat transfer. I need to test with only the motor running without the van moving.
Compared to the 1000kw thermal panel or 2000W kettle heater ... this is the best solution to get hot water.
(my heatexhanger is fitted inside a polystyren box to limit the risk of water freezing inside)
The 30 plate was the size we needed for camping hot water. The unit works well and the set up is pretty easy, the mounting studs allow for simple install in the engine bay. The threaded half inch ports are easy to work with and get fittings to suit our water hoses.
