AlfaNova is a 100% stainless steel plate heat exchanger. It comprises a number of corrugated stainless steel plates, a frame plate, a pressure plate and connections - all in stainless steel of 316 type. All components are bonded together by AlfaFusion, a new technology patented by Alfa Laval. The result is the fusion-bonded plate heat exchanger, a new class of PHE offering extremely high mechanical strength. It is also hygienic, corrosion-resistant and fully recyclable.

The AlfaNova offers a unique pattern on the corrugated plates which provides optimum heat transfer with low hold-up volumes. AlfaNova is also compact in relation to its capacity, offering maximum flexibility for system builders integrating it into solutions.

The AlfaFusion technology creates a plate heat exchanger with higher mechanical and thermal fatigue resistance than conventional brazed units. Its 100% stainless steel construction enables AlfaNova to withstand temperatures of up to 550°C.

The AlfaNova's genuine stainless steel construction also ensures high resistance to corrosion. Thus, it represents a breakthrough for refrigeration system builders using natural refrigerants such as ammonia.
