Alfa Laval's first hygienic heat exchanger

Jul 12, 2023Jul 12, 2023

UK: Alfa Laval has agreed a deal to supply its first gasketed plate heat exchanger (GPHE) from its newly launched hygienic line in the UK.

The deal has been secured through Alfa Laval’s only master integrator in the UK, Somerset-based Sycamore Process Engineering, experts in end-to-end process solutions for the dairy, food, beverage and plant-based industries.

Sycamore is a long-term collaborator of Alfa Laval, first becoming an authorised integrator in 2021 and rising up to become a master integrator earlier this year.

The new hygienic line, which was launched earlier this year, has been designed to help manufacturers maximise uptime on process operations, while also maintaining exacting hygiene standards.

Available in two sizes – H4 and the larger H8 – the heat exchanger features an enhanced transfer area for more uniform heat distribution and best-in-class efficiency, and a new cleaning-in-place (CIP) channel for improved cleanability.
