German term or phrase: komplette Wärmetauscher
Complete/whole heat exchangers? How does this sound?

English translation:entire/whole/complete/full, it depends on your context
Explanation:
Ani is probably right but there were also hits for "complete", "whole" and "entire" heat exchanger also.

Some of the "full" heat exhanger hits had to do with marine engines. Apparently some of the engine cooling is done in some unknown (to me) manner if the engine is partially heat exchanger cooled. If that is what your text is about, "full" is probably right. Here is such a site:

In other contexts concerning the repair or replacement of heat exchangers, where they speak of replacing the whole/entire/complete heat exchanger as opposed to repairing the heat exchanger or parts thereof, I would use "whole", "complete" or "entire". This would also apply to any other contexts where they want to speak of the whole system.

For example, this site uses "entire" twice when speaking of the exchanger and all the associated components. It also gives some good background info.

full heat exchanger


Explanation:
The heat exchanger is definitely right. I came across a "partial heat exchanger" in a previous transtation. So the logical conclusion would be "full" for komplett.
