Support to maximize your uptime

Alfa Laval has a truly global service network, with experienced technicians in your area who can be there with the support you need – right when you need it. From guidance on system design and installation, to training for your operators, troubleshooting, routine maintenance and even customized cleaning protocols, we are at your side throughout the long life of your equipment. Here are just some of the ways we can support you to maximize your uptime:

Performance audits

Our trained experts review and analyse the actual thermal performance of your equipment. Using modern tools, they can detect for fouling or similar risks, enabling you to better plan your maintenance needs in order to optimize system uptime.

Cleaning-in-place

Alfa Laval cleaning-in-place (CIP) systems enable quick and easy in-line cleaning of heat exchangers for managing fouling. With environmentally friendly, biodegradable cleaning agents, our CIP eliminates unnecessary repeated opening of your equipment. As a result, you drastically reduce spare parts consumption and the man-hours needed for maintenance.

Backflushing

Alfa Laval recommends frequent backflushing on the incoming flow of cooling water for short periods of time. In this sequence, the reversed water scrapes off and flushes out accumulated debris from the heat exchanger plate surface. Using backflush equipment saves time and money while minimizing downtime.
