Aalborg Micro, new Alfa Laval's Heat Exchanger 1

Alfa Laval, for which Laygo's plate heat exchangers gaskets are compatible with its devices, has added a new heat exchanger to its catalogue specially designed to be directly applied to the shipbuilding industry.

The primary purpose of this new heat exchanger so-called Aalborg Micro is the recovery of exhaust gases which are the result of gas ignition, MDO and HFO. It has also been designed to be used as a small steam producer. Furthermore, the Micro is mounted directly on the engine exhausts.

Regarding its function as a heat exchanger, its use is indicated for hot water, TFO or TEG. To do so, the perimeter of heating is formed by coaxial tubes placed on a plate with a cylindrical cover which can be placed both vertically and horizontally.

It withstands a power between 250 and 4500 kW. The maximum inrush temperature is 600° C, while the minimum temperature depends on the fuel in the engine and the exhaust gases.
