Alfa Laval introduced its first brazed plate heat exchanger (BHE) in 1977 and has since continuously developed and optimized its performance and reliability. Brazing the stainless steel plates together eliminates the need for gaskets and thick frame plates. The brazing material seals and holds the plates together at the contact points ensuring optimal heat transfer efficiency and pressure resistance. The plate design guarantees the longest possible life. The design options of the brazed heat exchanger are extensive. Different plate patterns are available for various duties and performance specifications. You can choose a standard configuration BHE, or a unit designed according to your own specific needs. The choice is entirely yours.

  • Low energy consumption due to the very low pressure drop over the heat exchanger.
  • Excellent thermal performance.
  • 2 combined heat exchangers, consisting of both the air to air heat recovery and air to refrigerant.
  • Integrated connection with heat recovery that requires no additional piping.
  • All refrigerant connections are on one side, air and water drain on the opposite side.
  • Stainless steel for reliability and long life.
  • Compact: the corrugated compressed plates significantly reduce the total air dryer size.
