The technology for dimple asymmetrical heat exchangers opens many markets and applications for Alfa Laval.
December 18, 2018
Alfa Laval, Richmond, Va., signed an agreement to acquire certain technologies and activities from Airec, a Sweden-based innovation company with patented technology for dimple asymmetry heat exchangers.
The R Series heat exchanger from HRS Heat Exchangers, Marietta, Ga., uses a rotary scraper rod capable of reaching velocities of 300 rpm, providing high levels of shear and mixing at the heat transfer surface.
One way to overcome the challenges presented by complex mixtures, particulates or viscous fluids is to use a scraped surface heat exchanger, such as the patented Unicus Series from HRS Heat Exchangers, Marietta, Ga.
