Alfa Laval launches the first 100% stainless steel heat exchanger, Alfa Laval AlfaNovaTW, to address the challenge with contaminated tap water. The new heat exchanger eliminates the risk of unsafe drinking and tap water due to metal release from equipment made of nickel and copper.
Limiting heavy metal contamination in drinking water is critical for public health and required by law in many jurisdictions. As many of the heat exchanger technologies still used in tap and warm water applications leak traces of nickel and copper into water supplies over time, Alfa Laval is now addressing this challenge. The new Alfa Laval AlfaNovaTW, with the patented fusion bonding technology, is a 100 percent stainless steel construction which thereby eliminates the risk of contaminating the tap water by heavy metals.
