Gas-to-liquid plate heat exchangers
From exceptionally high temperatures to media with extremely asymmetrical flow rates, Alfa Laval’s gas-to-liquid portfolio handles more than other plate heat exchangers. Built with a revolutionary asymmetric “dimple” plate design, our gas-to-liquid models provide efficient heat recovery and very low pressure drop in gas applications – all within a significantly smaller footprint than tubular technologies.
Handle more with brazed gas-to-liquid technology
- The lightweight construction offers much greater thermal efficiency and is typically 75% smaller than comparable shell-and-tubes
- Available as copper-brazed (GL and GLX) and 100% stainless steel (AlfaNova GL)
- Supports gas temperatures up to 750°C with no risk of thermal fatigue. For some applications, temperatures above 1400°C are possible.
- Very low pressure drop in asymmetric applications thanks to patented “dimple” plate design
- Fast global delivery thanks to Alfa Laval’s advanced production and logistics capabilities as well as a stock of standard gas-to-liquid models
Boosting CHP efficiency with gas-to-liquid technology
A compact, efficient pre-cooler for compressed air
A compact and efficient solution for micro-CHP
Sustainable heat recovery in compressed air systems
A fuel cell system built with Alfa Laval plate heat exchangers - Sustainable, safe and cost efficient
When the German renewable energy supplier HEE Technologies GmbH designed combined heat and power (CHP) fuel cell system, it was a clear choice to use Alfa Laval’s plate heat exchangers for fuel cell stack cooling and exhaust heat recovery. The system uses hydrogen as energy source, making it sustainable, safe, and cost efficient.
Meet the new AlfaNova GL50
The GL50 is an asymmetric gas-to-liquid plate heat exchanger made from 100% stainless steel. It is small enough to hold in one hand, but can handle gas flows of 250 cubic meter per hour, as well as inlet gas temperatures up to 750°C, with exceptional performance.
A heat exchanger that can handle more
The GL product line of Alfa Laval gas-to-liquid heat exchangers provides maximum efficiency within an ultra-compact footprint. The result is all new possibilities in a huge number of applications and industries.
