As the BC representative for Alfa Laval’s HVAC heat exchangers, we’re happy to help with selecting, specifying, and purchasing the right HX for your application. With Alfa Laval we can offer a full range of heat exchangers from small brazed plate units all the way up to large plate & frame exchangers, for applications such as domestic water heating, building heating/cooling, energy recovery, and district energy systems.
Alfa Laval has been operating in Canada for almost 130 years. Originally operating as D-Laval, the company began by assisting Canadian farmers separate, process and store milk products. Today Alfa Laval provides equipment, components and expert service to Canadian municipalities, manufacturers, and natural resource producers.
Alfa Laval is an industry leader in heat exchanger technology. They are continuously innovating to provide the best product & service possible. Just some examples of the industry-leading features of these heat exchangers are shown below. Please contact us for more information on the heat exchanger your application.
FlexFlow™ plate design improves thermal efficiency and optimizes pressure drop utilization. The asymmetric channels eliminate the compromise between thermal efficiency and pressure drop for duties with different hydraulic loads on the two sides of the heat exchanger. The result is up to 30% higher efficiency along with reduced fouling, for long-term, cost-effective performance.
CurveFlow™ distribution area optimizes the flow of media for better utilization of the whole plate surface. Improving the flow with more even distribution eliminates dead spots, providing higher thermal efficiency with reduced risk of fouling. This in turn means energy savings, lower maintenance costs and less time worrying about unplanned stops.
OmegaPort™ noncircular inlet and outlet offers two ways to save on energy: both higher thermal efficiency and reduced pump costs. That’s because it enhances the flow of media to give increased throughput, lower pressure drop and optimal utilization of the plate surface.
The Compact Frame feature offers more capacity in a smaller footprint. The smart guiding bar enables a maximum number of plates or cassettes in the frame while keeping the service area requirements down to a minimum. The design enables a faster and safer service which minimizes downtime and reduces maintenance costs.
ClipGrip™ gaskets offers superior fastening to the plate. Not only do the next-generation gaskets stay in place better than before, but they are also easier to mount in the first place. The unique design prevents snaking of plates at closing and the tangling of new gasket sets. Maintenance of the heat exchanger goes faster, plates and gaskets last longer, and you save money as a result.
Bearing Boxes are utilized on Alfa Laval’s large and medium model gasketed plate heat exchangers to reduce friction when opening and retightening the unit. This makes it possible for one person to the service heat exchanger easily and safely without the need for special tools. The bearing box thus offers significant advantages over competing solutions designed with a simple nut and washer, where maintenance is laborious, time consuming, and potentially hazardous.
