The adhesive pads: Alfa Laval using two kinds of combination of curing epoxy adhesive connected pad pad permanent firmly bonding in the gasket groove. When the heat exchanger is opened, the gasket will not fall off. While other manufacturers did not vulcanized viscose, and some do not even have two kinds of combination of plastic, which can not guarantee a solid bonding, when the heat exchanger is often off, and had to replace the gasket.
Diverging area: Alfa Laval plate advanced design its another characteristic is the Triage area design, which is the Alfa cutting one of numerous patents. Take over for easy configuration, heat exchanger modern import and export all over the unilateral. To make full use of the total heat transfer area, the fluid must be guaranteed to be uniformly distributed in the whole plate. Afalafa flow area design unique, even for one of the most wide surface, but also to ensure uniform distribution. Another notable feature is the lower pressure drop, which can make more economic pressure drop for heat transfer, thus obtaining the highest heat transfer coefficient. Other manufacturers due to the lack of good diversion area. Therefore, it is necessary using diagonal flow to the distribution of fluid to the surface, the diagonal board structure will make piping complex, need two different plate and a gasket, brings extreme inconvenience to maintenance.
Non adhesive gasket: Clip - on gasket is afalafa super adhesive free system is characterized by convenient in situ replacement gasket. The on - Clip pad is connected to the edge of the plate sheet by two forks, so that the gasket is positioned in the groove of the rubber pad. Alfa Laval's non stick system design, sealing function and pin buckle function are separated: then remove plastic forks, will not affect the seal.
