Why should I clean the plate heat exchanger and how often should I clean it?

The primary reason to clean a plate heat exchanger is to maintain its thermal performance. Cleaning frequency largely depends upon the operating environment of the heat exchanger; for example, temperature and the quality of the media play a role in determining how often cleaning s...

  1. Make sure water and air of the correct quality is supplied to the machine as recommended in the manual.
     

  2. Use only approved brands of oil for lubrication and check oil condition regularly.
     

  3. Make sure that the separator is operating in accordance with recommended design parameters.
     

  4. Constantly monitor vibration levels and bearing te...

  1. Make sure that the operating conditions (temperatures and flow rates) comply with the design specifications.
     

  2. At start-up, vent the heat exchanger but open and close the valves slowly to avoid pressure surges and water hammer.
     

  3. Use upstream filters and strainers to remove particulate fouling and protect the heat exchanger.
     

  4. On a d...

IN 2018, ST PETERSBURG, Russia, became home to the tallest building in Europe: the Lakhta Centre. It's just one of all the buildings around the world using Alfa Laval technology for indoor climate.

At 462 metres tall, the new skyscraper dominates the skyline of the city, and will form the centre of a new business district. The project’s ambitions extend we...

When suppliers of heat exchangers apply large sizing tolerances, it creates uncertainty about heat exchanger performance. However, there is a solution that can remove this uncertainty – AHRI performance certification – the only global third-party performance certification for plate heat exchangers.

How to eliminate uncertainty about thermal performance in...
