Alfa Laval offers T10 gasketed plate heat exchanger

Alfa Laval is promoting its T10 heat exchanger in the Australian market. According to the company, the T10 has been built with an entirely redesigned plate concept, which boosts energy efficiency and sustainability, while reducing total cost of ownership thanks to a smaller footprint and reduced maintenance needs.

The T10 is the successor to the long-selling M10 in Alfa Laval’s industrial line of plate-and-frame heat exchangers. Like its predecessor, the T10 has been designed for a wide array of HVAC&R applications in many different industries.

“Built with a revolutionary new plate concept, T10 eliminates the compromise between efficiency and pressure drop,” says Alfa Laval. “With the improved design, customers can better accommodate uneven flows, making it possible to optimise the performance of the heat exchanger according to its specific position in the processes.”

Alfa Laval says the T10 offers up to 30 per cent higher efficiency and reduced fouling for reliable, cost-effective performance.

The T10’s major update from the previous generation is a new plate concept.

“With the new FlexFlow plate design feature, T10 units can be configured more precisely without compromising between thermal performance and pressure drop,” says Alfa Laval. FlexFlow enables as many as 10 channel combinations using only two plates.

“FlexFlow is made possible by Alfa Laval’s next-generation plate alignment system, SteerLock, which ensures perfect plate positioning, regardless of whether the plates are configured symmetrically or asymmetrically,” says the company. “In addition to preventing leaks or damage to the plates during assembly, SteerLock also makes the service process easier, since removing and reassembling the plates during maintenance goes more quickly.

Other innovations such as the CurveFlowdistribution area and OmegaPort noncircular port holes have been incorporated to provide thermal performance equivalent to earlier models within a significantly reduced footprint. According to Alfa Laval, the new CompactFrame feature minimises the overall size of the unit, allowing for smaller service areas as well as simplified, faster maintenance procedures.
