Our plate heat exchanger portfolio consists of:

  • Gasketed plate heat exchangers

Effective heat transfer, easy to clean, verstile and environmentally efficient, Alfa Laval gasketed plate heat exchangers are standard equipment for efficient heating, cooling, heat recovery, condensation and evaporation.

  • Semi-welded plate heat exchangers

Easy to modify, inspect and clean, Alfa Laval semi-welded plate heat exchangers handle most refrigerants on the welded side and are particularly suitable for ammonia duties. The flexible modular design copes with fatigue stresses and ice formation.

  • Fully-welded plate heat exchangers

Perfect for heat recovery in corrosive operating environments and for handling aggressive, high-temperature fluids of all kinds, Alfa Laval fully-welded plate heat exchangers are compact making it easy to be installed virtually anywhere.

  • Brazed plate heat exchangers

Efficient heat transfer with an extremely small footprint, making them ideal for demanding installations where space is at a premium, Alfa Laval brazed plate heat exchangers forming a self-contained unit that can handle both high pressures and high temperatures resulting in significant increases in overall efficiency.

  • Fusion bonded plate heat exchangers

Alfa Laval fusion bonded plate heat exchangers are a breakthrough gasket-free alternative for a wide range of industrial applications that use aggressive liquids providing levels of hygiene and corrosion resistance unmatched by any other brazed heat exchanger.
