class Ifc2x3::IfcHeatExchangerType : public Ifc2x3::IfcEnergyConversionDeviceType

The energy conversion device type IfcHeatExchangerType defines commonly shared information for occurrences of heat exchangers. The set of shared information may include:

common properties with shared property sets common representations of shape common materials common composition of elements common ports applicable assignment of process types

It is used to define a heat exchanger specification (i.e. the specific product information, that is common to all occurrences of that product type). Heat Exchanger types may be exchanged without being already assigned to occurrences. Occurrences of IfcHeatExchangerType are represented by instances of IfcHeatExchanger.

HISTORY: New entity in IFC2x2

Property Set Use Definition The property sets relating to this entity are defined by IfcPropertySet and attached by the HasPropertySets attribute. Refer to the documentation at the supertype IfcEnergyConversionDeviceType and ancestors for inherited property set definitions. The following property set definitions are applicable to this entity: Pset_HeatExchangerTypeCommon

The following property set definitions are applicable to this entity according to the PredefinedType attribute:

Pset_HeatExchangerTypePlate (PLATE)

Material Use Definition The material of the IfcHeatExchangerType is defined by IfcMaterialConstituentSet or as a fallback by IfcMaterial, and attached by the RelatingMaterial attribute on the IfcRelAssociatesMaterial relationship. It is accessible by the HasAssociations inverse attribute. The following keywords for IfcMaterialConstituentSet.MaterialConstituents[n].Name shall be used:

‘Shell’: Material used to construct the shell of the heat exchanger.

Port Use Definition The distribution ports relating to the IfcHeatExchangerType type are defined by IfcDistributionPort and attached by the IfcRelConnectsPortToElement relationship. Ports are reflected at occurrences of this type using the IfcRelDefinesByObject relationship. Refer to the documentation at IfcHeatExchanger for standard port definitions.
