  • More savings: With innovations for improved energy efficiency and minimal maintenance, Contherm® can ensure the lowest possible cost of ownership.
  • More reliability: Every Contherm® is built with proven components, and backed by a global network with over 80 years’ experience in heat transfer.

Contherm® heat exchangers are a robust solution for a range of industries and applications: from food, chemicals and pharmaceuticals to health and beauty. Based on Alfa Laval’s decades of expertise in thermal exchange, each unit is specially engineered to handle viscous, heat sensitive, crystallizing or sticky products, as well as those with sensitive particulate matter. Alfa Laval’s patented rotating scraping technology continuously removes fouling material during processing. Gentle handling preserves the quality of shear-sensitive products while simultaneously providing high efficiency with a larger flow area and reduced pressure drop.
