Tube heat exchangers

Alflow sells some of the market’s best tube heat exchangers for both sanitary and industrial applications. We have tube heat exchangers for applications within the pharmaceutical, food and chemical industries. Explore our various tube heat exchangers on this site.

Tube heat exchangers: efficient heating and cooling

Tube heat exchangers are an efficient and safe way to heat or cool a product. Tube heat exchangers can e.g., consist of small-diameter corrugated tubes inside an external shell with plates for both ends. This removes the risk of contamination between the sterile product and the service liquid, as the product flows inside the narrow tubes and the service liquid flows inside the external shell.

Tube heat exchangers are suitable for thermal exchange processes of pharmaceutical liquids with low or medium viscosity. For example, our heat exchangers are compatible with:

  • Milk and cream
  • Ice cream
  • Yoghourt
  • Curd
  • Butter and margarine
  • Beer and cider
  • Fruit juice and purée
  • Soft drinks
  • Sugar solutions
  • Wine
  • Ketchup
  • Mayonnaise
  • Vegetable oil
  • Caramel and chocolate
  • Water (distilled, demineralised, WFI)
  • Etc.

Heat exchangers with long-lasting solution

Do you work in the chemical industry, the pharmaceutical industry or the food industry, and do you need an efficient way to heat or cool your product? Then a heat exchanger from our selection will definitely be suitable for you.

For demanding tasks, it is important that your equipment is completely in order. Therefore, all tube heat exchangers from Alflow are type approved and produced in appropriate materials. In addition, they meet industrial requirements in relation to use, hygiene, environment and serviceability. At the same time, this means that our tube heat exchangers are easy to service.

You can choose to have the tube heat exchanger delivered with the current certificates, which are suitable for several industries. For example, certificates such as:

  • FDA
  • 3A
  • Etc.

At Alflow, we also want to supply the best heat exchangers on the market. This can be seen, e.g., by the fact that our models are extremely durable as they are produced in the most suitable material in terms of application possibilities. By purchasing tube heat exchangers from Alflow, you get a long-lasting solution.

We have a wide selection of tube heat exchangers, including tube heat exchangers with seamless double tubes, corrugated tubes, multitube, monotube, etc.

We have tube heat exchangers with seamless double tubes, through which the process medium and the cooling/heating medium flow. They are suitable for applications where the heating medium is steam. These tube heat exchangers are compact and efficient and have no parts to maintain.

We also have tube heat exchangers with corrugated tubes for both sanitary and industrial applications.

The tube heat exchangers consist of small-diameter corrugated tubes mounted inside an external shell and welded to tube plates at the ends. This solution eliminates the risk of contamination between product and service liquid. An expansion joint is mounted on the external shell and the product to be thermally treated flows inside the tubes, while the service fluid flows inside the external shell.

Corrugation is a special treatment used on ordinary pipes to induce dynamic turbulence for the liquid flow, which optimises the thermal exchange. With corrugated tubes, the thermal exchange efficiency can be improved by between 40-90% according to the following parameters:

  • type of product
  • selected profile
  • application type

In addition to the improved thermal exchange, there are a number of other benefits of corrugated tubes:

  • reduced exchange surfaces
  • reduced contact and standing product time inside the item
  • reduced washing time thanks to a higher effect created by the turbulence
  • vertical or horizontal installation
  • works with high pressures and temperatures
  • gasket-free design, resulting in lower maintenance costs
  • easy to install

Did you know that we also offer thorough servicing of heat exchangers? With a heat exchanger from our range, your processes are thus ensured reliable operation and close fit in both directions – both at high and low temperatures.
