Alfa Laval offers everything from its “TurnKey” service to simple as-needed” repairs… and the choice is up to you. If you don’t have the time to repair your plate heat exchanger, Alfa Laval will repair it with its experts. If you opt for “TurnKey” service, all freight and other logistics are covered from your site to Alfa Laval’s service facility and back. After service has been performed, your heat exchanger is returned, properly assembled and hydro-tested, and ready to re-install. Alfa Laval has recently opened a Midwest Service and Repair Center located in Greenwood, Indiana.

The three levels of Alfa Laval Heat Exchanger service include:

Level 1: Basic

Provided either on-site or in one of our Service Centers: Plate Heat Exchanger is opened; plates are hydro-blasted clean while hanging in the frame; Plate Heat Exchanger is then properly reassembled.

Level 2: Standard

Performed in one of our Service Centers, steps include: Gasket removal; chemical plate cleaning; new gasket bonding.

Level 3: Premium

Performed in an Alfa Laval Service Center, this process includes all services available with the Standard level plus detailed crack detection inspection of
each plate.

Hydraulic Closing System

When dealing with plate heat exchangers that include a large number of plates, it is often very difficult to use any type of manual wrench to close the unit, this is where Alfa Laval employs its hydraulic closing system. The system uses four center hole cylinders, positioned at the corners of the plates and their frames.The system can be used in either opening or closing and each cylinder delivers 60 tons of force over a distance of 3 inches. All at the push of a button.

Pneumatic tightening device
The SG-80 pneumatic maintenance tool is a universal pneumatic tightening device to open and close plate heat exchangers with ease and efficiency. The SG-80 is available in single and double models that include a pneumatic wrench, air hose, compressed air unit, and carrying case.

Electric tightening device
The RPG-80 electric maintenance tool is ideal for loosening and tightening the bolts on your plate heat exchanger when compressed air isn’t an option. This maintenance tool is supplied with a carrying case.
