Spiral heat exchanger 

The all-round heat transfer solution.
Exceptional compactness and self-cleaning design make Alfa Laval spiral heat exchangers extremely versatile. Ideal for everything from dirty fluids to high vacuum condensation.

Unique shape has unique properties

A spiral heat exchanger is precisely what it says – a circular heat exchanger with two concentric spiral channels, one for each fluid. The curved channels provide optimum heat transfer and flow conditions for a wide variety of fluids, while keeping the overall size of the unit to a minimum.

Features and benefits of a spiral heat exchanger 

  • Fully engineered to meet the needs of every customer
  • Self-cleaning effect reduces operating cost
  • Low maintenance cost due to easy access
  • High heat transfer efficiency, higher than in shell & tubes
  • Unique ability to handle two highly fouling fluids
  • Every unit is fully drainable
  • Condensers have virtually no vapour side pressure drop
  • Column mounting of condensers reduces installation costs
  • Design experience from more than 40 years of manufacturing
