Key service offerings

Cleaning-in-place (CIP)

If fouling should occur, an Alfa Laval CIP system provides quick and easy in-line cleaning without having to dismantle your heat exchanger. This comes with:

  • Lower operating costs
  • Production reliability
  • Lower maintenance cost


Reconditioning a gasket plate heat exchanger restores performance and reduces the total operating costs. It also:

  • Extends product lifetime
  • Improves thermal efficiency
  • Minimizes energy consumption


Performance Audit

A Performance Audit from Alfa Laval can determine the actual heat transfer performance of your heat exchangers. This helps optimize your maintenance plan and:

  • Ensure production reliability
  • Secure maximum throughput
  • Mediate your maintenance budget

Visual Condition Assessment (VCA)

Thanks to our unmatched heat exchanger expertise, Alfa Laval can perform a visual inspection of your gasketed plate heat exchanger while it is in operation, identifying potential issues before they become major problems. Using infrared camera technology, we also evaluate the actual heat transfer performance of the heat exchanger. We then provide you with recommendations based on our findings and analysis of the thermal images.

Service to optimize energy efficiency

Every year, the number of heat exchangers we service to optimize energy efficiency reduces our customers’ capacity needs by 50 GW. That is the amount of energy that can be generated by 10,000 wind turbines in the same timeframe.

In carbon emissions, 50 GW translates to a 25 million tonne reduction to our global footprint, or the carbon emitted by the city of London every year.

Imagine what we could achieve if the world’s industries regularly serviced their plate heat exchangers to optimize heat transfer efficiency.
