Plate Heat Exchanger
January 1, 2002
Alfa Laval has introduced a Fast Delivery Program for the Compabloc all-welded plate heat exchanger. The program, which started on December 1, shortens delivery times to five weeks from the industry standard of 14 weeks for comparable welded heat exchangers. The program includes a range of seven sizes of heat exchangers with heat transfer surfaces up to 185 ft2 (equivalent to 1,000 ft2 heat transfer surface in a shell-and-tube heat exchanger) and temperature and pressure limits of 500oF and 300 psi. The units are assembled from standard cores and delivered from the Alfa Laval manufacturing facility in Lykens, Pa. The customer can select connection size and flange type, gasket material and temperature and pressure limits.
