M3 COMPACT FRAME

Standard design

The plate heat exchanger consists of a pack of corrugated metal plates with portholes for the passage of the two fluids between which heat transfer will take place. The plate pack is mounted in a frame assembly and compressed between a frame plate and a pressure plate. The plates are fitted with a gasket, which seals the interplate channel and directs the fluids into alternate channels. The number of plates is determined by the flow rate, physical properties of the fluids, pressure drop and temperature program. The plate corrugations promote fluid turbulence and support the plates against differential pressure.
The frame assembly consists of the following components: frame plate with connections, pressure plate, side plates and bars. The exploded views shows how the components are assembled.

 

Typical capacities

Liquid flow rate: Up to 4 kg/s, depending on media, permitted pressure drop and temperature program.
Working principle
Channels are formed between the plates and the corner ports are arranged so that the two media flow through alternate channels. The heat is transferred through the plate between the channels, and complete counter-current flow is created for highest possible efficiency. The corrugation of the plates provides the passage between the plates, supports each plate against the adjacent one and
enhances the turbulence, resulting in efficient heat transfer.

M6 PLATE HEAT EXCHANGER

Standard design

The plate heat exchanger consists of a pack of corrugated metal plates with portholes for the passage of the two fluids between which heat transfer will take place. The plate pack is assembled between a fix frame plate and
a movable pressure plate and compressed by tightening bolts. The plates are fitted with a gasket which seals the interplate channel and directs the fluids into alternate channels. The number of plates is determined by the flow rate, physical properties of the fluids, pressure drop and temperature program. The plate corrugations promote fluid turbulence and support the plates against differential pressure. The frame plate and the pressure plate are suspended from an upper carrying bar and located by a lower guiding bar, both of which are fixed to a support column. Connections are located in the frame plate or, if either or both fluids make more than a single pass within the unit, in the frame and pressure plates.

Typical Capacities

Liquid flow rate Up to 16 kg/s (250 gpm), depending on media, permitted pressure drop and temperature program Working principle Channels are formed between the plates and the corner ports are arranged so that the two media flow through alternate channels.

ALPHANOVA FUSION-BRAZED PLATE HEAT EXCHANGER

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

Work Principles

The 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.

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
