Identifying heat exchanger inefficiencies

10 May 2024

With plant, process and production managers under increasing pressure to demonstrate progress against decarbonisation goals, Alfa Laval has launched its latest energy-saving initiative, Energy Hunter, to highlight potential efficiency gains from optimising existing heat exchanger technologies.

Improvements can be achieved by updating inefficient heat exchanger equipment, plate configurations and changing cleaning and maintenance programmes, as well as reusing waste energy in other applications. 

Alfa Laval Sustainability Reports have identified that up to 2.5% of global carbon dioxide emissions can be prevented simply by operating existing heat exchangers at optimal efficiency, so there are clear opportunities to realise efficiency gains and reduce carbon footprints.

The new Alfa Laval program involves the introduction of simplified calculator tools to demonstrate energy savings available from optimal servicing strategies or reusing waste heat. As part of this, processing professionals are also encouraged to talk to Alfa Laval’s team of Energy Hunters to help realise further opportunities to optimise existing operations.
