Alfa Laval Plate Heat Exchangers - Selected and Assembled in Australia by Teralba
Plate Heat ExchangersAlfa Laval plate heat exchangers provide highly efficient heat transfer solutions whether processing simple fluids, or viscous solutions. Ideal for cooling or heating clear liquids such as, but not limited to, process water, wine/juice, milk, beer, pool water, and condenser water. This style of unit is considered to be the ultimate in compact footprint, value for money and efficiency. Our technical support team sizes each exchanger for your specific applications and these heat exchangers can be selected from models designed for flow rates as low as 200 litres/hour, increasing up to 1.2 million litres/hour.
Plate Heat ExchangersAvailable with Stainless Steel components, the Alfa Laval Plate Heat Exchangers are designed to provide hygienic and maintenance-free operation to food and beverage manufacturers and removes the need for the chemical laden epoxy coatings or spray paints essential for traditional mild steel frames. The stainless steel construction has several other advantages over traditional powder coated frames, including low maintenance costs, aesthetics; elimination of painting and a sanitary finish with high corrosive resistance. The plate heat exchangers include plate materials such as 316 grade stainless steel and titanium to provide corrosion resistance.
Plate Heat ExchangersTeralba Industries manufactures these units under licence from Alfa Laval and has a huge range of components held in stock ready to assemble for your requirements. This allows Teralba to offer plate heat exchangers using locally manufactured components that results in competitive pricing, short lead times and efficient after sales service. These products complemented with the Teralba tube heat exchange range offers the industry endless combinations for solutions to heat transfer duties.
Plate Heat ExchangersHow it works...
Alfa Laval Plate Heat Exchangers consist of a number of corrugated plates with gaskets placed in grooves along the edge. The adjacent plates come into contact with each other where the ridges meet. Plates are clamped together to form counter-current flow paths. By combining various style plates and flow arrangements, the ultimate efficiency can be attained.
Benefits and Features
- Reduced Fowling - due to high turbulence, uniform fluid flow and smooth plate surfaces.
- Compact Size - requires less floor space than other types of heavy duty heat transfer units.
- Cost Effective - lower and economical cost due to higher thermal efficiency and lower manufacturing costs.
- Ease of Cleaning - quick and easy to access plates for inspection.
- True Counter-flow - fluids flow in opposite directions and that results in effective temperature differences.
- Lightweight - due to less surface area.
