Heating and cooling are essential parts of most industrial processes. The
demand is for these applications to be carried out with the least energy
consumption. Heat exchangers provide an efficient technology for heating and

Heat exchangers exist in many forms, and as one of the world's leading
companies in this field, Alfa Laval naturally has a full range:

  • Air & tube heat exchangers
  • Plate heat exchangers
  • Purpose built systems
  • Scrape surface heat exchangers

Air & tube heat exchangers

Alfa Laval is mostly known for its expertise within plate heat exchange
technology. However, we also offer a wide range of high quality tubular heat
exchangers for various applications.

Our tubular heat exchangers are:

  • Air heat exchangers
  • Shell & tube
Plate heat exchangers

Alfa Laval - Sondex, Inc. choose a market leader
Alfa Laval and Sondex are leading manufacturer of plate heat exchangers in the world. We provide you with compact, modern solutions with the highest thermal

Working principle
The basic plate heat exchanger consists of a series of thin, corrugated plates that are gasketed, welded together (or any combination of these) or brazed together
depending on application. The plates are then compressed together in a rigid frame to create an arrangement of parallel flow channels. One fluid travels in the odd
numbered channels, the other in the even.

Similar on the outside, unique on the inside
All plate heat exchangers look similar on the outside. The difference lies inside, in the details of plate design and the sealing technologies used. Alfa Laval is in the
forefront of R&D work on plate heat exchangers. We continue to improve and develop products to optimise our customers processes. Time and time again.

Plate heat exchangers from Alfa Laval are available as:

  • Copper brazed
  • Evaporators & condensers
  • Fully welded
  • Fusion bonded
  • Gasketed
  • Semi welded
Purpose built systems

The application of heat transfer technology for a particular purpose or end product such as vegetable oil or fresh water is one of Alfa Laval’s key competencies. Our
customers rely on this expertise when thermal economy is a premium consideration.

Alfa Laval’s purpose built systems include, fresh water generators, desalination systems, the SoftColumn deodorizer and heat transfer systems for HVAC applications.

  • Deodorizing systems
  • Fresh water generators
  • Heat exchanger systems
Scraped surface heat exchangers

Scraped surface heat exchangers consist of a cylinder that that has an inner tuber (heat transfer surface area) and an outer tube. Between the two tubes, there is
annular space, where the heating or cooling media flows counter-current to the product. Inside the inner tube, a bladed shaft rotates and removes the product from
the heat transfer wall areas.

Alfa Laval has a selection of scraped surface tubular heat exchangers (SSTHE):

  • Contherm (extended range)
  • ViscoLine Dynamic (new range)
