Hygienic Heat Exchangers


FrontLineFrontLine is a top-of-the-line series of plate heat exchangers. Able to meet the highest demands on hygienic control, it features a superior and flexible design that allows easy handling and modification.

Among the main applications for FrontLine are dairy pasteurization, yoghurt cooling, UHT treatment and work with heat-sensitive products. FrontLine frames can be supplied in stainless steel and silver- coated versions, and the Clip plates are available in alternative materials for challenging food-processing tasks. In most cases their Clip plates can be cleaned via CIP (cleaning-in-place), using the same flow as in the process itself.


BaseLineWith its cost-effective frame design, the BaseLine series of plate heat exchangers is a competitive choice for process and utility duties. Working at pressures up to 10 bar (g), it handles not only heating and cooling, but also pasteurization at low flow rates. Typical BaseLine applications include simple pasteurization, raw milk cooling, media heating/cooling and CIP (cleaning-in-place) heating.

Fusion-bonded plate heat exchangers (AlfaNova)

Fusion-bonded plate heat exchangers (AlfaNova)AlfaNova plate heat exchangers are the first in the world to be manufactured from 100%stainless steel. Thanks to AlfaFusion –Alfa Laval’s revolutionary technology for bonding stainless steel components – they can withstand even extreme temperatures and pressure fatigue conditions.

Their exceptional performance suits AlfaNova plate heat exchangers to demanding duties in a broad range of industrial applications and utilities. Often employed to heat water or CIP (cleaning-in-place) solution by means of water and steam, they can also be used for general heating and cooling duties.

The Alfa Laval Contherm scraped surface heat exchanger (SSHE)

The Alfa Laval Contherm scraped surface heat exchanger (SSHE)Handles any viscous, sticky and/or heat-sensitive process fluids as long as they are pumpable. It is widely used within the food and personal care industries. Available in different versions, Contherm can handle products with low to extremely high viscosities or those containing particulates as well as special application and process requirements, such as evaporation.

Brazed plate heat exchangers

Brazed plate heat exchangersAlfa Laval’s brazed plate heat exchangers are extremely compact – a result of high heat transfer coefficients, small hold-up volumes and the use of thin materials. The stainless steel plates are brazed into a package without the use of gaskets, with copper serving as the brazing material.

Operating costs are reduced by the heat exchangers’ high thermal efficiency, while the rectangular shape and front positioned connections make for easy installation. Resistant to heat, pressure, vibration, and above all corrosion, brazed heat exchangers are perfect in utilities such as heating water with steam.


Pharma-XDesigned for point-of-use cooling in the biopharm industry, the Pharma-X tube-in-tube heat
exchanger eliminates the risk of contamination between the product and cooling media. It consists of three discrete tubes arranged one within the other, curved through 180º to create a bend that takes up thermal expansion.

The Pharma-X heat exchanger can be used in many application areas, including point-of-use cooling on WFI (Water For Injection) ring mains, cooling/heating of pure water in the biopharm industry and cooling/heating of distilled water/WFI for processing equipment.

CIP (Clean in Place) Heat Exchangers

New technology Plate & Frame heat exchangers are designed specifically for use with steam. Conventional Shell-and-tube heat exchangers are an outdated solution for most liquid-heating applications.

CIP (Clean in Place) Heat ExchangersTS6-M
Thanks to its unique plate geometry, TS6-M series of plate heat exchangers is thermally optimized for steam condensation duties. This makes it useful not only for heating water, but also for heating CIP (cleaning-in-place) solution by means of steam or hot water. TS6-M plate heat exchangers are available with either stainless steel or titanium plates.
