Alfa Laval’s brazed plate heat exchangers are extremely compact – a result of high heat transfer coefficients, small hold-up volumes and the use of thin materials. The stainless steel plates are brazed into a package without the use of gaskets, with copper serving as the brazing material. Operating costs are reduced by the heat exchangers’ high thermal efficiency.
Gasketed plate heat exchangers are a compact and efficient heat transfer solution.Among the Alfa Laval advantages are our unique Clip plates, whose glue-less clip-on gaskets can be replaced with the plates still on the frame. Their innovative design makes full use of our industrial experience, plus the latest developments in material, construction and production methods.
When product hygiene is important, then the Alfa Laval range of Tubular Heat Exchangers offers certainty when it comes to isolating products and media. And for this reason, Alfa Laval offers a number of specially developed, high-quality tubular heat exchangers.
The Alfa Laval Contherm scraped surface heat exchanger (SSHE) handles any viscous, sticky and/or heat-sensitive process fluids as long as they are pumpable. It is widely used within the food and personal care industries. Available in different versions, Contherm can handle products with low to extremely high viscosities or those containing particulates as well as special application and process requirements, such as evaporation.
