MassFlowAverage temperature difference (swak4foam)

I'm a relatively new OF user and I need a little help. I'm using OF 2.2.2 and swak4foam 0.3.0.
In my 2D heat exchanger case I want to calculate average temperature increase and pressure drop from inlet to outlet boundary.
I use the principle described here:
I've modified it to calculate temperature differences.
However, this is area-weighted averaging.
And I want to do a mass-flux-weighted averaging for my temperature increase, but in the same way as in the upper link.
It should be based on this equation:
Please, show me the direction.

Would be a nice candidate for http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Co...Usage_examples
Note: I don't use "Friend"-feature on this forum out of principle. Ah. And by the way: I'm not on Facebook either. So don't be offended if I don't accept your invitation/friend request
