Alfa Laval’s patented AlfaFusion bonding technology creates highly efficient, compact heat exchangers made entirely of stainless steel. Virtually maintenance free and capable of handling extremely high pressures and temperatures, they are an ideal heat transfer solution for challenging applications. These include duties with high cleanliness demands, with aggressive media such as ammonia, or where copper or nickel pose contamination risks.
Sustainable Heat Transfer
- 100% stainless steel construction means 100% recyclability
- Resists corrosion from aggressive media and process fluids
- Prevents nickel or copper-contamination when working with drinking water or any other hygienic fluid
- AlfaFusion technology enables higher temperature resistance than traditional brazed heat exchangers with same high-pressure capabilities
- Optimized plate design with asymmetric channel configuration provides maximum efficiency in demanding heating and cooling applications
How it works
Alfa Laval fusion-bonded plate heat exchangers are carefully engineered to ensure the greatest possible thermal performance within the smallest possible footprint. Watch this animation to learn more about their basic operation.
When nickel and copper just won’t do
In applications with high hygiene demands, all equipment must conform to the strictest standards. For drinking water applications in particular, where protecting consumer health is a top concern, preventing the possibility of nickel and copper contamination has become a critical issue. As a result, more and more OEMs are seeking heat exchanger solutions for clean water chiller and tap water heating systems that do not use these metals.
Built in 100% stainless steel, AlfaNova heat exchangers are an optimal choice when nickel and copper just won’t do. In addition to providing peace of mind when it comes to hygiene, they also offer much higher efficiency than traditional copper and nickel-free solutions used for these duties.
