Alfa Laval sets a new standard for thermal efficiency with their newest plate heat exchanger

Alfa Laval has raised the bar once again when it comes to producing reliable, serviceable, and energy efficient heat exchanger technology for their customers. They are now launching the newest in their gasketed plate heat exchanger range, promising to impact an even wider range of applications and industries.

Alfa Laval’s development team has been hard at work, questing every aspect of their designs in search of improvement. The results are bold, including innovative new features and technical concepts that have not been seen before.

The TS45 is the world’s most modern gasket plate heat exchanger. Every inch of its design is intentionally created with flexibility and performance in mind. This means that it is the most versatile of its kind on the market and can benefit virtually any application, especially cooling duties.

These large new plates are packed with innovations to take thermal efficiency to new hights. The first of which is Alfa Laval’s noncircular inlet and outlet OmegaPort. This small design change has significant results. Thanks to an increased thermal surface area it can boost efficiency across the whole plate pack. In some cases, it even means that fewer plates are required per pack without losing out on performance.

The second new innovation that helps keep the TS45 at the front of the range is Alfa Laval’s FlexFlow design. This new design incorporates asymmetric channels that optimize thermal efficiency, resulting in up to 30% higher efficiency and reduced fouling. In other words, it helps provide long-term, cost-effective, and quality performance.

The third and final big innovation that makes the TS45 a cut above the rest is the installation of Alfa Laval’s CurveFlow plate pattern. This new pattern improves media flow and distribution, so the risk of fouling an unplanned downtime is considerably reduced. Thanks to this new technology Alfa Laval’s customer can save even more on time, energy, and maintenance costs.

“These features are three great examples of how Alfa Laval is innovating energy efficiency in the race to net zero emissions” Carina Resare, Head of R&D

While the innovations mentioned are designed to take Alfa Laval’s customers to new levels of productivity, the TS45 has one other crucial benefit to be proud of. Regardless of the application or position this gasketed plate heat exchanger is put in, it will help save energy and minimize carbon emissions in every process. Alfa Laval’s objective in this design has been very clear from the start: solve customer challenges in more sustainable and cost-efficient ways. The development of the TS45 has therefore reflected that. Every new innovation is targeted towards reducing the customer’s total cost of ownership as well as producing quality results.

Alfa Laval’s new standard for thermal efficiency is set to raise the bar for their customers, the industry, and the planet. The TS45 is proof that we can accelerate the transition to more sustainable solutions and reach net-zero emissions.
