How long will your gaskets last?

Using Alfa Laval’s proprietary GPredict™ tool, our service advisors can give you a reliable estimate of the expected lifetime of your gaskets. The tool relies on precise calculations based on your specific equipment and relevant application details, including temperature, gasket material, whether you use glued or non-glued gaskets, and how often you open your unit in the course of annual operation. With that, you can plan the reconditioning of your plates, since you always know when it’s time for re-gasketing well in advance. Take advantage of GPredict™ with a customized gasket prediction based on your installation* by contacting us today.

Service to optimize energy efficiency

Every year, the number of heat exchangers we service to optimize energy efficiency reduces our customers’ capacity needs by 50 GW. That is the amount of energy that can be generated by 10,000 wind turbines in the same timeframe.

In carbon emissions, 50 GW translates to a 25 million tonne reduction to our global footprint, or the carbon emitted by the city of London every year.

Imagine what we could achieve if the world’s industries regularly serviced their plate heat exchangers to optimize heat transfer efficiency.
