Does anyone have any experience with “SLIM JIM” lake plate exchangers?
I am building a new floating home in the Fraser River in BC. I have a plan to install a Geothermal closed loop heating and cooling system that will utilize (2) 2 ton “Slim Jim” lake plate exchangers attached to the float below the water line. The temperature of the river historically ranges between 1 degree and 20 degrees celcius through the year.
River current should make these exchangers operate more effectively than in a typical lake or pond installation.
I wonder if anyone has any experience with these plates in a river installation (or any other for that matter)?
