Alfa Laval announces the launch of its gasket-free, 100% stainless steel AlfaNova M HP 400 plate heat exchanger for use as cargo condenser and/or heater aboard liquid petroleum gas (LPG) carriers.
A compact, lightweight alternative to traditional shell-and-tube heat exchangers, the AlfaNova M HP 400 assists the ship owner in meeting the requirements of the Chemical Distribution Institute’s “Ship Inspection Report for Chemical and Gas Tankers,” seventh edition.
It also provides ship owners with the benefits of higher efficiency, increased safety, greater temperature flexibility, and lower total cost of ownership.
With the introduction of the AlfaNova M HP 400 to the maritime industry, Alfa Laval now provides the LPG market with the option of using this cost-effective cargo condenser as an indirect system instead of using shell-and-tube or welded-type condensers.
“We have adapted the proven fusion-bonded AlfaNova heat exchangers to the cargo conditioning requirements of LPGs,” says Johan Lennartsson, Alfa Laval Marine & Diesel’s regional marketing manager who is responsible for working with contractors and shipyards for liquid gas carriers.
“By combining an innovative 100% stainless steel brazing filler and patented fusion technology, AlfaFusionTM, in a compact heat exchanger, we are able to provide an ideal cargo condenser for indirect LPG reliquefaction systems. The AlfaNova M HP 400 has the same low weight and high efficiency as a copper brazed plate heat exchanger but is suitable for all LPG media including ammonia.”
