The all-round heat transfer solution.
Exceptional compactness and self-cleaning design make Alfa Laval spiral heat exchangers extremely versatile.
Ideal for everything from dirty fluids to high vacuum condensation.
Unique shape has unique properties
A spiral heat exchanger is precisely what it says – a circular heat exchanger with two concentric spiral channels, one for each fluid.
The curved channels provide optimum heat transfer and flow conditions for a wide variety of fluids, while keeping the overall size of the unit to a minimum.
