Gasketed plate heat exchangers
Suitable for a wide range of applications in most industries, gasketed plate heat ex.changers are a compact and efficient heat transfer solution. Alfa Laval’s gasketed models are designed for exceptional control, which makes them ideal for heating and cooling duties in demanding hygienic processes.
Among the Alfa Laval advantages are our unique Clip Plates (see page 7), whose glue-less clip-on gaskets can be replaced with the plates still on the frame. Their innovative design makes full use of our industrial experience, plus the latest developments in material, construction and production methods.
Holding the plates together are sturdy, pressure-graded frames with hygienic and labour-saving features. These offer great flexibility for expansion or rebuilding, as well as small ports that enable Cleaning In Place (CIP) without specialized pumps.
