Achieve a new standard of efficiency
Improving the efficiency of the heat exchanger makes it possible to simultaneously maximize production while minimizing energy consumption. It’s about reducing both your power bill and your environmental footprint. That is why we have sought to boost thermal transfer with a revolutionary new plate design. A number of unique Alfa Laval features improve the flow of media across the plate and increase the overall heat transfer area. As a result, fewer plates are needed, meaning added performance and higher sustainability from an even more compact unit.
The FlexFlow™ plate design improves thermal efficiency and optimizes pressure drop utilization. The asymmetric channels eliminate the compromise between thermal efficiency and pressure drop for duties with different hydraulic loads on the two sides of the heat exchanger. The result is up to 30% higher efficiency along with reduced fouling, for long-term, cost-effective performance.

The CurveFlow™ distribution area optimizes the flow of media for better utilization of the whole plate surface. Improving the flow with more even distribution eliminates dead spots, providing higher thermal efficiency with reduced risk of fouling. This in turn means energy savings, lower maintenance costs and less time worrying about unplanned stops.

The OmegaPort™ noncircular inlet and outlet offers two ways to save on energy: both higher thermal efficiency and reduced pump costs. That’s because it enhances the flow of media to give increased throughput, lower pressure drop and optimal utilization of the plate surface.

Offset gasket groove
The next generation of gasketed plate heat exchangers is designed with a gasket groove in a special zig-zag pattern that offers the greatest possible heat transfer area. Better utilization of the whole plate reduces the number of plates required for optimal performance and ensures maximum thermal efficiency for still greater energy savings.
