Alfa Laval equipment for refineries

Compabloc welded plate and block heat exchanger.jpg


All-welded and fully accessible, the Compabloc can handle tough duties that need high pressures and temperatures. It can even cope with the most aggressive inlet media without compromising on fast and easy cleaning or inspection. Its flexible connection size and placement can manage asymmetric flows, and work in combination with a short plate construction to make the perfect solution for condensing and re-boiling duties.
