Effective heat transfer, easy to clean, versatile and environmentally efficient, Alfa Laval gasketed plate heat exchangers are standard equipment for efficient heating, cooling, heat recovery, condensation and evaporation.


The conventional type of Alfa Laval plate heat exchanger uses heat transfer plates fitted with gaskets that seal off each channel from the next, and direct the fluids into alternate channels.

This type of plate heat exchanger is used throughout industry as standard equipment for efficient heating, cooling, heat recovery, condensation and evaporation. Generally speaking, all of these Alfa Laval units are notable for:

  • High thermal efficiency for effective heat transfer
  • Compact design resulting in small quantities of materials used for heat transfer surfaces
  • Low installation cost
  • Easy dismantling and easy, rapid cleaning
  • High performance with low hold-up volume
  • Versatile, modular design
  • Environmentally efficient


General heating and cooling duties. Heating by means of steam.

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.
Water heating by steam 300 to 800 kW
Plate types M6, M6-M and M6-MD

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.
