Various solutions for heat transfer are used in most industrial processes. Heat exchangers transfer heating or cooling from, for example, one fluid to another and are of vital importance for efficiency in the entire manufacturing process. Alfa Laval has led the development of heat transfer technology since the company entered this field in 1931 by supplying pasteurising equipment for the dairy industry. Today, the company offers numerous energy saving solutions for:
Alfa Laval supplies a comprehensive range of heat exchangers for applications spanning from simple duties at low pressures and temperatures to duties with aggressive fluids and at high and ever-changing temperatures and pressures.
Liquid/liquid gasketed plate-and-frame heat exchanger
This animation shows the working principle of an Alfa Laval liquid/liquid 1-pass gasketed plate-and- frame heat exchanger where the fluids run counter-currently through the heat exchanger. The hot liquid (illustrated in red) normally enters through one of the upper connections and leaves through the connection underneath. The cold liquid (illustrated in blue) enters through one of the lower connections and leaves through the connection above. (Read more)
Gasketed plate-and-frame heat exchangers and brazed provide efficient heat transfer in compact equipment with a small footprint. The units have a flexible design and are easy to service and maintain. The product range is extremely wide and is used in duties for all industries, for all inquires other than HVAC we can refer you to the correct department, within Alfa Laval head office.
We have been an authorised and certified service partner for Alfa Laval HVAC equipment since 2015 and have been fully trained to service and maintain their entire range of HEX across the UK. We have a dedicated team to deal with technical queries, and a fully supported team of engineer’s who deal with the removal, of damaged plates, which can often be cleaned on the customers site, or have a CIP cleaning carried out without removing the plates, if there are no signs of fowling.
Plates would be taken back to the workshop for a complete cleaning and overhaul, including crack and die detection checks before being returned fully refurbished for re-installation. We have invested heavily into tooling and training, so we deliver a fast and effective solution to all Alfa Laval customer’s needs.
