Alfa Laval's Gasketed plate heat exchangers are optimizing heat transfer by large surfaces of corrugated plates drawing heat from one gas or liquid to the other. The high efficiency and an outstanding reliability in a compact design, offers an investment with the most attractive CTO over the product life time. Not to forget the energy saving capabilities and low environmental footprint.
Introducing the world’s most modern Gasketed plate heat exchangers. Discover how our next-generation line of gasketed plate heat exchangers will bring you higher efficiency, better reliability and greater serviceability.
The design of the corrugated plates optimizes heat transfer by providing a large but compact total surface area through which the heat can be drawn from one liquid or gas to another. The heat transfer area of the plates is pressed in a corrugated herringbone pattern. When two plates are superimposed with opposing herringbone patterns, the helix-like flow and high turbulence results in high transfer coefficients and effective self-cleaning. A change in the corrugation pattern enables the heat exchanger to be used in different processes, even those with very dirty media. The plate distribution area ensures an even flow of fluid over the entire plate to maximize the heat transfer capability. An optimized flow distribution also reduces fouling and uneven temperature zones keeping the performance levels high over time without unnecessary energy losses, maintenance costs or unplanned stops.
Gaskets are key components in heat exchanger performance. We design the gasket and plate as one to assure an optimized seal. Each is tailored to the duty of the heat exchanger. The correct profile, width, thickness, and polymer type and compound make a world of difference in avoiding the risk of premature leakage or gasket or plate damage. Your benefits are prolonged gasket life, less downtime and lower maintenance costs.
