Field of application:
Standard Design: Suitable for a wide range of applications in most industries, gasketed plate heat exchangers 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, 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-grades frames with hygienic and labour-saving features. These offer great flexibility for expansion or rebulding, as well as small ports that enable Cleaning In Place (CIP) without specialized pumps.
Front Line: Front Line is a top-of-the-line series of plate heat exchangers. Able to meet the highest demands on hygienic control, it features a superior ad flexible design that allows easy handing and modification.
Among the main applications for Front Line are dairy pasteurization, yoghurt cooling, UHT treatment and work with heat-sensitive products. Front Line frames can be supplied in stainless steel and silver coated versions, and the Clip plates are available in alternative materials for challenging food-processing tasks.
