Alfa Laval launches HEXpert: an online tool for simplifying heat exchanger selection in demanding positions
In demanding process applications, such as those found in the petrochemical and oil & gas industries, heat exchangers play a critical role. Alfa Laval has spent decades working closely with customers to better understand their challenges and match them with the right technology for their particular demands. The company has now put all of that experience into HEXpert, an interactive, online tool that makes the process of selecting a heat exchanger faster and easier than ever before.
“For most of our customers in the heavy process industries, finding the right heat exchanger solution is essential,” says Christian Thomsen, President of Business Unit Welded Heat Exchangers at Alfa Laval. “Getting this right brings them very big returns in terms of reliability, sustainability and plant operating economy.”
