Cool complete solutions: with plate heat exchangers from Alfa Laval

Even the best heat exchanger will not do unless the overall system is properly designed. With Bachofen and Alfa Laval, building services engineers benefit twice over. Not only do they get a product that sets new standards for heat transfer, but they can also rely on Bachofen to provide the ideal design for the project.

Building services planners and HVAC system designers are constantly faced with the challenge of developing energy-saving heating and cooling solutions: for public buildings, commercial properties, apartment complexes or entire industrial plants. Each time, they must find the heat exchangers which best meet the specific requirements of the project. But in addition to choosing the most suitable system for the dimensions of the project, it has to be properly designed. A heat exchanger will only provide the performance expected of it if the calculations based on the planned application are correct.

System and design from a single source

Clever planners and system developers choose a partner who can offer what naturally belongs together: the right system and the required design expertise. Whether it’s pleasantly warm or cool interiors, ideal temperatures in data centres, heating for swimming pools or other heating and cooling applications, the new T Series from Alfa Laval and Bachofen provides the best possible basis for cool complete solutions.


The heat exchanger reinvented

Alfa Laval is the world leader in heat transfer, separation and fluid handling and every year invests 2 to 3% of its net revenue in developing new technologies. The latest innovations from Bachofen’s technology partner include the T Series heat exchangers. On the outside, they look a lot like conventional products, but the surprise is on the inside, where the technology is completely different to the familiar “washboard array”.

A unique product concept

With four different patented plate technologies, Alfa Laval caters for the different requirements that arise in heating and cooling technology depending on the project and objective. The non-circular OmegaPortTM inlets and outlets improve flow and increase thermal efficiency. The CurveFlowTM distribution area assists flow and minimises the risk of fouling. The asymmetric channels of the FlexFlowTM plate design eliminate the problem of different pressure drops at different flow volumes. And SteerLockTM plate alignment allows precise plate positioning and easier maintenance.

Alfa Laval and Bachofen stand for efficient and sustainable heat exchange systems. Thanks to the impressive T Series from Alfa Laval, combined with Bachofen’s system design.
