gasketed plate heat exchanger / liquid/liquid / compact / condensation
Alfa Laval AlfaCond condensers are specifically designed for condensing of vapour under vacuum. These plate surface condensers are ideal for use in applications such as vacuum condensers in evaporation systems, ethanol condensers in bioethanol plants, pan vapour condensers in sugar refineries, and as turbine condensers in small power plants. With its compact design, AlfaCond is easy to install where space is crucial.
Highly efficient and very compact
Highly efficient and very compact, AlfaCond is the world's first plate condenser specifically designed for condensing under vacuum. Due to its compact size and efficient design, AlfaCond has become the preferred alternative to bulky indirect shell-and-tube condensers. Also, AlfaCond is easy to clean by means of Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) or mechanically.
AlfaCond is an alternative to direct condensers when condensate recovery is the goal and when there are space constraints. The AlfaCond can be configured with or without subcooling of the condensate. Non-condensables are removed from the condensate outlet pipe and led to the vacuum system.
Equipped with well-designed features, AlfaCond heat exchangers are easy to maintain and have a long service life. AlfaCond features the glued gasket, which is a two-component, oven-cured epoxy glue keeps the gasket in place during any possible cleaning condition. Additionally, the pressure plate roller, the bearing boxes on tightening bolts, and the Five-point alignment system with reinforced hangers make opening and closing the heat exchanger quick, and easy without the need for heavy tools or the risk of damaging the plates.
