Alfa Laval IndustrialLine MK15 W Gasketed Plate-and-Frame Heat Exchanger

Alfa Laval Industrial semi-welded line is used when gaskets are not suitable for one of the process media. The semi-welded line can also withstand a higher design pressure compared to fully gasketed plate-and-frame heat exchangers. The relatively short plate makes this model suitable for duties with short temperature programs and when a low pressure drop is appreciated. A large range of plate and gasket types is available.
