Optimizing power generation lube oil cooling

To keep the lube oil working at its optimal temperature, Alfa Laval offers a wide range of products and engineered solutions to cool lube oil used in turbines at power generation plants­­ – from direct lube oil cooling systems, indirect air coolers, or complete lube oil thermal systems.

Industrial line of gasketed plate heat exchangers

Compact and modular in design, our industrial gasketed plate heat exchangers offer highly efficient heat transfer yet weigh less and take up less space than comparable units. Our global manufacturing, strong focus on compliance with standards and vast expertise enables Alfa Laval to be able to supply the optimal lube oil cooling solution in almost all situations.

Brazed heat exchangers

Alfa Laval’s brazed heat exchangers are high-efficiency oil coolers that contribute to a long and maintenance-free lifetime for lube oil systems. Alfa Laval has a range of different brazed or fusion-bound heat exchangers with off-the-shelf speeds. Quick, easy-to-use and reliable, the Alfa Laval DOC and Alfa Laval CB ranges are suitable for most lube oil systems for cooling capacities ranging from 10 kW up to 360 kW.

Fusion-bound heat exchangers

Highly suitable for high efficiency oil applications, Alfa Laval AlfaNova plate heat exchangers are made of 100% stainless steel to minimize the risk of corrosion.

Finned coil air heat exchangers

Alfa Laval finned coil air heat exchangers are used to cool the turbine lube oil in power plants. With the compact and reliable construction Alfa Laval finned coil air heat exchangers ensures optimal heat transfer of the turbine lube oil. The turbine oil is cooled directly in the air heat exchanger.
