This new, smaller copper brazed plate heat exchanger for oil cooling applications is another step in the launch of the new generation heat exchangers from Alfa Laval. With higher efficiency and a general increase on performance capacity, the DOC30 can tackle large-capacity duties even with only limited installation space available.
o The new DOC30 is a smaller version of DOC60, launched in December last year. We are updating our range of products and we see a big interest in these more compact models from our customers. It is the new generation heat exchangers, says Jenny Thorsen, Portfolio and Application Manager at Alfa Laval.
For oil cooling applications, the new DOC30 (Dedicated Oil Cooler) copper brazed plate heat exchanger offers both higher efficiency with a smaller heat transfer area leading to a general increase in performance capacity over its predecessors.
The new DOC30 also offers less pressure drop which in turn reduces power consumption. At the same time, the DOC30 retains the same interface as its successful predecessors so replacement is made easy.
The design options of the copper brazed plate heat exchanger are extensive and different stainless steel plate patterns are available for different duties and applications.
