Alfa Laval launches DuroShell heat exchanger for LNG

Published by
LNG Industry,


Alfa Laval has introduced the DuroShell plate-and-shell heat exchanger, its latest technology for fuel gas systems.

Optimised for use as an LNG vaporizer, the robust DuroShell provides higher thermal efficiency than conventional plate-and-shell designs, as well as market-leading fatigue resistance. Thanks to new research into glycol freezing, it can now be used in even more compact and cost-effective installations.

“The continued rise in the number of vessels sailing with LNG is one of the most significant trends in today’s marine industry,” says Jonny Hult, Head of Marine Heat Transfer Equipment at Alfa Laval. “With more and more ships relying on LNG as fuel, we are seeing greater demand for vaporizer technology that can dependably resist freezing and the fatigue caused by pressure and temperature.”
