A multi-purpose range that keeps getting better
Our wide range of industrial gasketed plate heat exchangers is suitable for all types of industry and multiple applications from heating, cooling and heat recovery to condensation and evaporation. We are constantly looking to extend and upgrade the range, adding new performance criteria and greater flexibility. What’s termed ‘next-generation’ today will soon be standard for the entire Alfa Laval Industrial line.
Towards new standards in efficiency, reliability and serviceability
High energy efficiency
Flexible – configurable for broad range of applications
Ensures optimal performance in specific applications based on specific needs
Easy to install
Our industrial plate heat exchangers are energy efficient, compact, simple to maintain, easy to adjust for capacity changes and represent a relatively low capital investment. The vast range of options when it comes to size, plate and gasket material and add-ons means they can be specifically designed and configured for your application, from the simplest of duties to the most demanding where requirements on both performance and documentation are high.

Service to extend the performance
A poorly functioning heat exchanger may affect safety, product quality and energy costs. Failure may lead to costly downtime and major losses in production. By regular and proactive maintenance performance is preserved and operations kept trouble-free and predictable.
All heat exchangers lose performance over time. Alfa Laval's cleaning equipment (CIP) provide quick and easy in-line cleaning, but we recommend sending the units for recondition on a regular basis to reset the status of your equipment to an as-good-as-new condition. A Performance Audit by a qualified engineer, give you an assessment of the current state of your units, which makes planning for downtime easy. At reconditioning we replace gaskets, upgrade plates or replace damaged ones – all spare parts used are genuine Alfa Laval according to original specification. This is important to secure the sealing and reliability of your heat exchanger back in production.
When emergency calls, help is always close to you. Our network of service centres, factory-trained field technicians, service representatives and authorized service providers, mean that we have your parts and service needs covered for the complete range of Alfa Laval heat exchangers.

Delivers the benefits of a simple, compact and economical installation, ideal for use in a vast range of general industrial processes.
Ideal for a variety of industrial applications, such as power, and may be combined with ejectors or boosters to form hybrid packages, allowing higher vacuum levels.
The heat transfer area of a gasketed plate heat exchanger consists of a series of corrugated plates, assembled between a frame and pressure plates to retain pressure. Gaskets act as seals between the plates. Fluids normally run counter-currently through the heat exchanger. This gives the most efficient thermal performance and enables a very close temperature approach, ie the temperature difference between the exiting process medium and the entering service medium.
AHRI certified industrial gasketed plate heat exchangers
The Alfa Laval AlfaQ range of heat exchangers are certified according to the AHRI* Liquid to Liquid Heat Exchangers (LLHE) Certification Program (AHRI 400) which ensures thermal performance according to a manufacturer's published specifications. Typical HVAC applications include district cooling substations, ice-storage systems, data centre cooling and free cooling systems. To read more about the Alfa Laval AlfaQ range.
Eliminate uncertainty about thermal performance
Reduced system-wide energy use and operating costs
Uncompromised environmental performance
Under-dimensioned heat exchangers can lead to higher system-wide energy use, higher operating costs and compromised environmental performance. With AHRI certification, you are assured that the plate heat exchanger will function as required. No risk of underperformance. No uncertainty. It does what it says on the box, guaranteed.
Features that make the difference
The Industrial line is equipped with features that turn this high-performance family into efficient and reliable workhorses that are easy to service and maintain over the whole product lifecycle.
