Alfa Laval SHE LTL

Introduction  

Engineered for liquid-to-liquid duties, the Alfa Laval SHE LTL is 

a spiral heat exchanger with curved channels to provide 

optimum heat transfer and flow conditions for a wide variety of 

fluids. This spiral heat exchanger range offers a broad 

spectrum of standard models with a wide variety of diameters 

and heat transfer surface areas and can be used to handle 

fouling fluids at medium pressures. 

Applications  

The Alfa Laval SHE LTL range is suitable for heating, cooling 

and heat recovery in applications where there is a high risk of 

fouling and where minimized operational downtime for 

cleaning is crucial. 

Their high heat transfer efficiency often makes them suitable 

for replacing shell & tubes or other types of heat exchangers 

where fouling risk or down time for cleaning are important. 

Benefits  

• Drastically reduced fouling thanks to the single channel design with its self-cleaning effect 

• Easy inspection and mechanical cleaning (hydro-blasting) of the heat transfer surface 

• Minimal operational downtime thanks to the longer intervals between cleaning and the ease of putting the unit back into operation after cleaning 

• Highly efficient heat recovery thanks to true countercurrent flow 

• Compact and flexible design that can be installed horizontally or vertically 

Working principle  

The Alfa Laval SHE LTL spiral is made of two concentric spiral flow channels in which the media are in full counter current flow. The hot medium generally enters at the centre of the unit and flows from the inside outwards to exit at the periphery. The cold fluid enters normally at the periphery and flows towards the centre, thereby achieving counter flow. Counter current flow combined with optimal flow conditions in both channels obtains higher heat transfer coefficients than in many other types of heat exchangers. Close temperature approaches and temperature crosses are easily achieved. 

The single channel design reduces drastically fouling and eliminates bypassing. Unlike multiple pass heat exchangers in which partial clogging redirects the flow through the remaining 

open channels, the velocity in the single channel spiral increases until deposits are scrubbed away
