With most major Marine Engine manufacturers seeing the benefits of the plate heat exchanger (PHE); more often than not, the PHE can be found integrated as the OEM cooling system for these propulsion and generator giants. Some of the most...


Fresh Water Generators

The product of decades of research and development, the Alfa Laval freshwater generator concept offers effective solutions to all the problems commonly associated with traditional designs:

  • Low scaling rate and high reliability mean very little maintenance
  • High-grade materials make coating repairs a thing of the past
  • Titanium plates in the heat exchangers and extensive use of non-ferrous materials prevent corrosion of vital parts
  • Compact, lightweight design fits easily into engine rooms where space is at a premium

Alfa Laval freshwater generators utilize the waste heat generated by the main engine and/or the auxiliary engine as a heat source for the distillation process.

The range of Alfa Laval Plate Type Freshwater Generators covers capacities from 0.5 to 115 m3 fresh water per 24 hours with a guaranteed maximum salinity of 2.0 ppm.
