Unisuite PHE is the thermal design software chosen by the best manufacturers for the
design, rating & selection of gasketed & brazed plate heat exchangers. Considered by the market the most accurate solution for the design, selection and rating of PHEs and BPHEs, Unisuite PHE results are validated by experimental data and consolidated customer satisfaction.
The user can choose between fluid-fluid calculations (without phase change), evaporation, condensing and steam. Software works in verify, design or selection mode. In VERIFY mode you have to specify all the exchangers data, so geometry plate, number of plates, number of passes primary and secondary side. In DESIGN mode you have to specify the following exchangers data, so geometry plate, number of passes primary and secondary side. The software will calculate the best number of plates that satisfy the requested parameters, like for example capacity and pressure drops. In SELECTION mode you can specify the requested parameters, like for example capacity,max pressure drops, number of passes. The software will calculate the best plate geometry and the number of plates.
PHE can also analyze 30°, 45° and 60° herringbone angles. You can easily realize your own design calculation, using High-Theta or Low-Theta plates or even create a custom Chevron Angle for the pattern. The user can also set the percentage of High Theta or Low Theta plates used in the exchanger.
ACCURACY ABOVE ALL
On tested models, we have compared data calculated by the software (without any calibration) with laboratory tests conducted by our customers, and verified that the calculated data are in great accordance with data reported by customers, where no result exceeds 15% divergence at worst. And this 15% can be further reduced by calibration, according to the experimental results. PHE gives you also the chance to calibrate experimental data using various factors in Turbulent and Laminar Regime in order to match your test results.
Insert plate drawings in .png format, generate useful graphics, add new plate models to the archive! Fluid library is derived from the NIST’s Refprop library, with the newest refrigerants and fluids including pure liquids, pure gases, liquid and gas mixtures with the possibility of inserting the mixture
Desktop Commercial Selector
There is also the possibility of developing a Desktop selection software. This solution has a lower cost with respect to the Web version, and the software in this case can be installed on PC and is distributable to the sales network thanks to license bundles. The Desktop PHE SELECTION software allows the selection of GASKETED and BRAZED plate heat exchangers. The user can enter the required performance and obtain in output one or more heat exchangers that meet the requirements. The calculation modes are fluid- fluid (without phase change), condensing, direct expansion and steam. Through a dedicated archive management, the user will be able to enter and edit plate range, geometries, correction factors, drawings, prices, plate dimensions and weights. Available calculation in Verify, Design and Selection mode.
Online Commercial Selector
Unilab PHE WEB is an Online Commercial Selector, accessible from browser on a Tablet/iPad, PC or Mac, which allows the selection of GASKETED and BRAZED plate heat exchangers. The user can enter the required performance and obtain in output one or more heat exchangers that meet the requirements. The calculation modes are again fluid-fluid (without phase change), condensing, direct expansion and steam. The best tool for your sales dept., PHE WEB works in Selection and Rating modes. In SELECTION mode you can specify the required parameters, such as capacity, maximum pressure drops, number of passes. As a result, the software will show a list of heat exchangers from those that meet the technical requirements. The software will calculate the best plate geometry and number of plates. It will then be possible to perform a RATING by selecting the single plate geometry. The user will be able to print a PDF report, complete with technical data and a dimensional drawing.
Your product range: PHE WEB allows you to independently manage your product range of gasketed or brazed plate heat exchangers.
Your branding experience, pricing rules and custom interface: The standard User Interface of PHE WEB fulfills, in our experience, 90% of the needs of a company that needs a selection software for Plate Heat Exchangers. To sort the results, the program can also calculate an approximate price of the exchanger with a standard formula. However, since the software is your branding experience, and the offer printout is a decisive element, especially in the technical economic negotiation phases, it is possible to elaborate the software in a substantial way, along with your own rules, in order to make it as effective as possible for the commercial action, representing your company to the fullest.

Simple and user-friendly: PHE WEB is a simplified version of our Unilab PHE interface, and so the ideal operational tool for distribution to sales teams, agents or clients. PHE WEB is also full responsive, adapting itself graphically in an automatic way to the device with which it is displayed, be it a PC, Mac, iPad or Tablet.
No installation or setup file: No need to send any setup to customers, agents, distributors. Access is immediate and does not require any download: just a browser, a username and password, and internet connection. Update is also made easier. Once server is updated, all users will seamlessly have the latest version.
Portability: PHE WEB is usable anywhere and from any device, because it works on a browser. This makes it independent from any operating system requirement, allowing it to work on different devices, like a tablet, PC, iPad or Mac.
Easy license management: No serial numbers: enter your dedicated admin area, and attribute a username and password to your customers, giving access or revoking it in seconds. You can also attribute access to single calculation modes (fluid-fluid, condensing, direct expansion, steam).
Archive management: allows users to attribute or revoke user access to the software, enter & edit information on plate range, geometries, correction factors, drawings & prices.
PHE is part of UNISUITE: our smart platform and unique tool the for design, selection and rating of Shell & Tube, PHE & BPHE, Tube in Tube, Coaxial Heat Exchangers, and PLATE & SHELL heat exchangers. All UNISUITE software use the library REFPROP of NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology). It comprises the thermodynamic and thermophysical properties of more than 300 liquids & gases, and 12 mixtures of liquids, including the newest refrigerants like R1234ze, R1234yf, R449A and many more. Each software integrates correction factors, which lets the user to align results with the experimental data. Our calculation models are supported by almost 35 years of research & expertise. Our products represent a consolidated value for the HVAC industry, and they can be used in the Power Generation, Food & Pharmaceutical industries.
