    A couple of possibilities

    The plate exchanger could be separating the two systems because of the source pressure (such as in a high-rise) or because the hot or chilled water has different solutions (glycol or no glycol, chemical treatment, etc.

    It could also be that the PHE is used for free cooling water-side economizer using condenser water for example.

    Without a diagram or more information it is just a guess.

    Traditionally, 2-pipe systems have 3-way diverting valves for change-over. Again, a diagram may help to get you a better answer.
