Alfa Laval launches a new Compabloc FreeFlow condenser for the pharmaceutical industry

11 March 2013

Compabloc FreeFlow is a highly efficient, fully welded plate heat exchanger especially developed for use in pharmaceutical applications. It is easy to clean, offers top hygienic properties, exceptional performance, corrosion resistance, and compact size. The result is better product quality and lower operating costs.

Compact size

Superior heat transfer efficiency in a Compabloc FreeFlow makes it possible to reduce the required heat transfer area dramatically compared to an equivalent shell-and-tube or graphite block. This means it can be as small as one-fifth in size compared to a shell-and-tube, and still offer better heat transfer.

The small size is especially valuable if you are planning to increase production but lack space. A Compabloc FreeFlow fits anywhere and is easily integrated into your process.

Low costs and long working life
Thanks to the compact size, investment and installation costs for a Compabloc FreeFlow are low, even when the unit is manufactured in highly resistant materials such as Hastelloy.

The robust, fully welded design makes Compabloc FreeFlow insensitive to thermal shock and vibrations. It is built for maximum reliability, offers a long working life, and good return on investment.

The high thermal efficiency allows a Compabloc FreeFlow to work with a closer temperature approach than a shell-and-tube or graphite block. This makes it possible to use less cooling medium and in some cases a warmer, less costly cooling medium.

Meeting the highest hygienic standards
Compabloc FreeFlow has excellent hygienic characteristics. It has no contact points on the product side, is fully drainable, and is easy to clean and inspect. It fully meets the requirements for installation in stringent cGMP processes. The risk of cross-contamination between batches is minimal thanks to the absence of contact points and the crevice-free design, which facilitates fast and thorough cleaning.
