AlfaNova Fusion-brazed Plate Heat Exchanger

Heat Exchangers M3
AlfaNova Series


General Information

AlfaNova is a completely new type of plate heat exchanger (PHE), the world’s first PHE made of 100% stainless steel. It is based on Alfa Laval’s new revolutionary technology, Alfa Fusion, the art of joining stainless steel components. AlfaNova heat exchangers are well suited in applications which
put high demand on cleanliness, applications where ammonia is used or applications where copper or nickel contamination is not accepted. Its high resistance to corrosion makes it both hygienic and
environmentally friendly. It is extremely compact compared to its capacity to withstand great
strains in demanding heat transfer applications


Within refrigeration:
- Oil cooler
- Condenser
- Evaporator
- Economizer
- Desuperheater
- Absorption systems

Other main applications:
- Domestic hot water heater
- Process cooling
- Hydraulic oil cooling
- Laser cooling
- Hygienic/sanitary
- Water/water cooling & heating

Work Principles

TThe heating surface consists of thin corrugated metal plates stacked on top of each other. Channels are formed between the plates and corner ports are arranged so that the two media flow through alternate channels, always in counter-current flow. The media are kept in the unit by a bonded seal around the edge of the plates. The contact points of the plates are also bonded to withstand the pressure of the media handled.
