Alfa Laval has introduced the TL35, a new gasketted Plate Heat Exchanger developed for general heating and cooling duties in the oil and gas industries.
In common with all Alfa Laval Plate Heat Exchangers, the TL35 consists of a pack of plates assembled between a fixed end plate and a movable pressure plate and compressed using tightening bolts. The plates are stamped with a corrugated pattern which forms channels when the plates are assembled together. Gaskets are used to seal the plate periphery and direct the fluids into alternate channels.
The pattern formed by the corrugations is designed to promote turbulence in the two fluids.
