Demand new standards for your cooling system
With decades of experience at our side, Alfa Laval has pioneered the world’s most modern gasketed plate heat exchanger designs. Discover how our next-generation line of technologies can bring higher efficiency, better reliability and greater serviceability to your data center.
Protecting and enabling greener solutions
On average, as much as 40% of a data center’s power consumption goes toward cooling the servers. Fortunately, the technology to make these cooling systems more energy efficient and reliable already exists. Watch this video to learn about the potential for increased sustainability with Alfa Laval’s next-generation plate heat exchangers.
Efficient and reliable technology: that is what we do
Only Alfa Laval offers a full range of heat exchange technology for data centers with performance certification from the independent Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI). This gives you confident assurance of efficient performance, but ultimately, the equipment is just the beginning. Find out how we can work with you from day one to make sure your cooling system will deliver reliable, long-term sustainability.
Unique expertise to ensure dependable sustainability over time
Fouling can greatly reduce both the expected lifetime of your heat exchanger as well as its thermal performance. With Alfa Laval as your partner, you have access to the world-leading experts on chemistry and materials technology. They can work with you to identify the potential causes of fouling risks and develop custom strategies to help you prevent it.
Advanced solutions for data centers
Support to maximize your uptime
Alfa Laval has a truly global service network, with experienced technicians in your area who can be there with the support you need – right when you need it. From guidance on system design and installation, to training for your operators, troubleshooting, routine maintenance and even customized cleaning protocols, we are at your side throughout the long life of your equipment. Here are just some of the ways we can support you to maximize your uptime:
Our trained experts review and analyse the actual thermal performance of your equipment. Using modern tools, they can detect for fouling or similar risks, enabling you to better plan your maintenance needs in order to optimize system uptime.
Alfa Laval cleaning-in-place (CIP) systems enable quick and easy in-line cleaning of heat exchangers for managing fouling. With environmentally friendly, biodegradable cleaning agents, our CIP eliminates unnecessary repeated opening of your equipment. As a result, you drastically reduce spare parts consumption and the man-hours needed for maintenance.
Alfa Laval recommends frequent backflushing on the incoming flow of cooling water for short periods of time. In this sequence, the reversed water scrapes off and flushes out accumulated debris from the heat exchanger plate surface. Using backflush equipment saves time and money while minimizing downtime.
