To ensure the safe removal of unwanted contaminants from the heat exchanger and separator surfaces, Alfa Laval recommends specially developed non-toxic heat exchanger cleaning solutions with low environmental impact. These have been thoroughly tested in our own laboratory to safeguard that gasket and heating surface materials are not affected.
Our range includes highly effective acid- and caustic-based heat exchanger cleaning solutions for the removal of most types of fouling, including both soft and hard deposits. For ease of handling, powders are also available.
A heat exchanger cleaning solution with high performance and particularly low impact on the environment.
An acidic heat exchanger cleaning solution with a phosphoric acid base specifically designed for the removal of metallic oxides, rust, calcium carbonate and other inorganic scale.
A strong alkaline heat exchanger cleaning solution specifically designed for the neutralization of used AlfaPhos prior to disposal.
A strong alkaline cleaning liquid with a caustic soda base specifically designed for the removal of biological matter, fat, oil and other organic deposits from heat exchangers and related equipment.
An acidic cleaning powder with a sulphamic acid base and a corrosion inhibitor that is particularly effective for removing calcium carbonate and other inorganic scale.
An alkaline powder that is specifically designed for the neutralization of used Alfa P-Scale prior to disposal.
A neutral cleaning strengthener made from an advanced formula of different surface-active agents. Designed for use with AlfaPhos, AlfaCaus and Alfa P-Scale.
Cleaning Services, including CIP (Cleaning-In-Place) systems and cleaning agents, are specially designed and formulated to remove deposit build-up effectively from heat transfer, separation and fluid handling equipment. Mechanical cleaning on board or on site can also be provided.

Keeping heat exchangers clean can be of vital importance to operational process efficiency. With our heat exchanger cleaning services, process surfaces are restored to optimal condition, which lowers the maintenance costs and extends your equipment’s lifetime. And by saving energy, you can lower your operating costs as well.
Alfa Laval offers a range of Cleaning-In-Place (CIP) systems and cleaning agents, specially designed and formulated to remove deposit build-up effectively from heat transfer, separation and fresh water generator equipment.
We only use carefully developed and environmentally sound chemicals.
Choose from a broad range of Alfa Laval CIP modules and systems for heat exchangers manufactured in stainless steel or polyethylene for the very smallest modules.
Alternatively, we can design CIP systems for your very large heat exchangers or hazardous areas that require explosion-proof equipment.
To ensure the safe removal of unwanted contaminants from the equipment surfaces, Alfa Laval recommends specially developed non-toxic cleaning agents with low environmental impact. These have been thoroughly tested in our own laboratory to safeguard that gasket and heating surface materials are not affected.
In addition to CIP chemical cleaning agents, Alfa Laval also has a range of other chemicals to enhance separator efficiency and chemicals for potable water handling. These are specifically developed for use with our high-speed separators and water desalination plants.
Chemical Cleaning-In-Place brings Heat Exchanger performance back up with minimum downtime and environmental risk.

Our expert steps are:
If possible, a sample fouling/scaling is collected and analyzed to formulate the right chemical or solvent to use
A CIP system is used to circulate the chemical cleaning solution through the heat exchanger.
If a heat exchanger does not have a CIP connection, our technicians are able to isolate the unit and install flanges with a port to circulate the cleaning chemicals.
The CIP cleaning solution used is custom mixed according to the fouling type. It is non polluting, environmentally friendly and not hazardous to the health of plant personnel.
The flow rate is adjusted to accomplish a scrubbing effect while the chemical/solvent is circulated.
After cleaning, the heat exchanger is rinsed with clean water and the chemicals are neutralized and disposed of with care to avoid any environmental impact.
CIP services are performed on-site by experienced heat exchanger technicians anywhere in Canada.
Chemical solutions are customized to your process (Emulsifiers & Demulsifiers, Scale Removers, Oxide & Sulphide Solubilizer) and specially reacted surfactant blends to optimize performance efficiency after the Alfa Laval CIP service.
For complete reconditioning services, the Alfa Laval service facilities are located in Edmonton, Alberta and Scarborough, Ontario. The heat exchanger repair teams are professional and use state of the art environmentally friendly procedures and safe service equipment.
