Brazed, stainless steel heat exchangers that have undergone a unique treatment where a thin layer of tantalum is metallurgically bonded to all surfaces exposed to corrosive media, which is an excellent choice for handling hot, highly corrosive media.
Alfa Laval TA line is an excellent choice for handling hot, highly corrosive media.
Compact and highly reliable, tantalum heat exchangers are characterized by low investment costs and minimum maintenance requirements, which results in exceptionally low total cost of ownership.
Alfa Laval TA line consists of brazed, stainless steel heat exchangers that have undergone a unique treatment where a thin layer of tantalum is metallurgically bonded to all surfaces exposed to corrosive media. Combining a stainless steel core with a tantalum surface maximizes corrosion resistance and pressure resistance. Using advanced design technologies and extensive verification guarantees the highest performance and longest possible service lifetime.

How it works
The heating surface consists of corrugated metal plates. Channels are formed between the plates and corner ports are arranged so that the two media flow through alternate channels, usually in counter current flow for the most efficient heat transfer. The process side of the heat exchanger is treated with tantalum on the entire surface. The utility side is untreated.
