Alfa Laval has launched the CB30, a compact and thermally efficient brazed heat exchanger for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) and refrigeration duties.

The CB30 is light and more compact than its predecessors thanks to new production techniques and its higher thermal efficiency is complemented by its ability to accommodate a lower pressure drop, which in turn reduces power consumption.

The brazed heat exchanger is said to be ideal for heating and cooling duties in HVAC, refrigeration, industrial applications and for oil cooling and will work at flow rates of up to 14.53/h.

The CB30 consists of a number of corrugated stainless steel plates stacked on top of each other to form channels for the passage of two liquids, generally in full counter-current flow.

End plates complete the plate pack, which is then brazed at contact points to form a rugged and gasket-free exchanger offering high levels of thermal efficiency and good resistance to pressure and temperature.

The CB30 can be supplied in standard format ex-stock or can be supplied with different internal plate configurations, enabling it to be tailored precisely to a range of heating and cooling applications with no need for over-engineering.

Alfa Laval's operations are based on leading global positions in the three key technologies of heat transfer, separation and fluid handling. Continuous product development is essential to strengthen competitiveness. About 2.7 per cent of total sales are invested annually in research and development, resulting in 25–30 new product launches a year.

Alfa Laval's products are sold in approximately 100 countries, 50 of which have their own sales organisations. The company has 20 large production units (12 in Europe, six in Asia and two in the US) and 70 service centres.

The customer's peace of mind depends on having the right service setup. For Alfa Laval, service is a total concept that covers everything from supplying the smallest spare part to being a lifetime performance partner. Alfa Laval has a global network with more than 200 skilled service specialists, a broad range of competitive service solutions, unique expertise based on more than 120 years in business and service centres in hundreds of locations in more than 50 countries.
