Keeping your heat exchangers clean is extremely important for process performance. Cleaning should be done before complete fouling or process issues occur resulting in production losses or irreversible damages. An Alfa Laval Performance Audit can help predict the optimal cleaning interval.
Gasketed plate heat exchangers can be cleaned onsite or offsite. Our field service engineers can recommend the best solution for your specific equipment. Contact us for more information.
To safely remove contaminants from the equipment surfaces, you should use non-toxic cleaning agents with low environmental impact. These cleaning agents safeguard gaskets and ensure the heating surface materials are not affected.
Alpacon cleaners - a cleaning range based on organic acids and whey that has low impact on the environment
AlfaPhos - an acidic cleaning liquid with a phosphoric acid base specifically designed for the removal of metallic oxides, rust, calcium carbonate and other inorganic scale
AlfaNeutra - a strong alkaline cleaning liquid specifically designed for the neutralization of used AlfaPhos prior to disposal
AlfaCaus - a strong alkaline cleaning liquid with a caustic soda base specifically designed for the removal of biological matter, fat, oil and other organic deposits from heat exchangers and related equipment
Alfa P-Scale - an acidic cleaning powder with a sulphamic acid base and a corrosion inhibitor that is particularly effective for removing calcium carbonate and other inorganic scale
Alfa P-Neutra - an alkaline powder that is designed for the neutralization of used Alfa P-Scale prior to disposal
