Alfa Laval T8 – Energy efficiency at its peak

The all-new compact gasketed plate heat exchanger

The new Alfa Laval T8 gasketed plate heat exchanger is a perfect balance between optimal capacity, reliable performance and compact size. Equipped with exciting innovations such as Alfa Laval CurveFlowTM, Alfa Laval ClipGripTM and the unique perpendicular corner guiding design, the T8 sets a new standard in minimizing your total cost of ownership in heating and cooling applications.

Thanks to its compact size – less than 1 m in height – and with a connection size of 80 mm, the Alfa Laval T8 is the ideal gasketed plate heat exchanger for HVAC applications in buildings, as well as numerous other industries such as fluid power, metalworking, marine, power generation, general manufacturing, general utility cooling, engine cooling, and the semi-conductor industry.

“Alfa Laval T8’s unique design and simplicity combines the best of Alfa Laval’s 80 years of expertise in gasketed plate heat exchangers,” comments Johan Snarberg, Product Portfolio Manager.


Superior efficiency and compactness
The innovative T8 comes with the unique Alfa Laval CurveFlowTM distribution area, which delivers superior flow distribution and more of the available pressure drop over the main heat transfer area. This allows the T8 to be configured with less plates, thus a more compact size and reduced maintenance costs. Energy efficiency is improved due to the reduced need for increased pumping power to compensate for higher pressure drop.

Easy and safe maintenance
The T8 also features the new Alfa Laval ClipGripTM, which allows fast and completely glue-free mounting. Gaskets stay in place during maintenance while reducing consumption of spare parts and additional time for re-gasketing.

Reliable performance over time
Perpendicular corner guiding design ensures that the T8’s plate pack is perfectly aligned regardless of the number of plates, ensuring reliable performance and faster closing of the unit after servicing.
