Gas to liquid plate heat exchanger GLX30

  • Alfa Laval’s GLX range of brazed gas-to-liquid plate heat exchangers offers a more flexible way to meet the demands of applications with challenging operating conditions.
  • The unique open inlet design of GLX heat exchangers maximizes media flow rates while ensuring the lowest possible pressure drop. Delivered as modules, they can be easily assembled into larger systems to help optimize performance efficiency.
  • The range features a cross-flow arrangement that allows for high flow rates on the gas side, which is designed with completely open inlets and outlets.
  • In addition to limiting pressure drop, this facilitates easy cleaning to help you keep maintenance-related downtime to a minimum. The GLX range is highly suitable for condensation applications.

Design

  • The brazing material seals and holds the plates together at the contact points ensuring optimal heat transfer efficiency and pressure resistance.
  • Using advanced design technologies and extensive verification guarantees the highest performance and longest possible service life.
  • Asymmetric channels provide optimal efficiency in the most compact design. This results in very low pressure drop on the gas side.
  • Cross-flow arrangement with open inlets/outlets on the low pressure side ensures the lowest possible pressure drop when working with gas media.
  • The GLX heat exchanger can be built in modular systems, creating the ability to handle larger gas volume extending the performance efficiency to larger systems.

Benefits

  • Compact
  • Easy to install
  • Low level of service and maintenance required
  • All units are pressure and leak tested

Features

  • Cross-flow arrangement with open inlets/outlets on the low-pressure side ensures the lowest possible pressure drop when working with gas media
  • Supports temperatures as high as 750°C with no risk of thermal fatigue failure
  • Designed to handle asymmetric volumetric flow rates with exceptionally high performance
  • Module design enables flexible flow configurations in larger systems

How it works

  • Alfa Laval’s gas to liquid plate heat exchangers use thin, corrugated stainless steel plates to ensure heat transfer from one medium to another.
  • Copper soldering seals the media in the plate package and results in a highly efficient heat exchanger consisting exclusively of surfaces that actively contribute to heat transfer.
  • The contact points between the plates are also brazed, which improves resistance to pressure and temperature fatigue.
  • The arrangement of the channels formed between the plates ensures that the media flow in countercurrent through alternating channels, further optimizing the efficiency of heat transfer.
  • One channel is far larger than the other channel, so the device can handle very high flow rates.

    Alfa Laval Mid Europe GmbH

    Alfa Laval is an international Swedish company active in the areas of energy, marine, and food & water, offering its expertise, products, and service to a wide range of industries in some 100 countries. With our broad portfolio of thermal and separation technologies we provide solutions for enabling the transition to green hydrogen. In electrolyser production (PEM, Alkaline, or SOEC), we offer efficient plate heat exchangers for cooling electrolytes, hydrogen and oxygen. Our plate heat exchanger portfolio also includes desalination technologies that allow you to use seawater or river water in your production, which is ideal if you operate an offshore plant. And our heat transfer solutions make it possible to recover and reuse waste heat from the electrolyser to desalinate water, or for other sustainable purposes, such as district heating. We are present in both production and storage, with unique solutions for compression and cooling, as well as innovative printed circuit heat exchangers for refueling stations. Alfa Laval has spent decades developing highly efficient and robust plate heat exchanger technologies. From our fusion bonding technique that enables reliable performance at very high temperatures, to gas-to-liquid solutions that can handle extremely uneven flow requirements, we can offer unique technologies perfect for fuel cell development.
