Alfa Laval launches AlfaNova GL50, the first heat exchanger developed specifically for fuel cell systems at the Alfa Laval Net-zero launch event.
Fuel cells will play an important role in the global transition to green energy. By unleashing the energy stored in hydrogen and derivatives such as ammonia, methanol, and methane, fuel cells can accelerate decarbonization of hard-to-abate sectors like shipping and heavy industry. The key to viability is maximized system efficiency and minimized energy losses.
The AlfaNova GL50 was first showcased at the Alfa Laval Net-zero launch event in mid-February 2023. Featuring patented AlfaFusion technology, AlfaNova heat exchangers are known around the world for their robustness and ability to handle the most demanding applications.
The new AlfaNova GL50 is an asymmetric gas-to-liquid plate heat exchanger, made from 100% stainless steel. It handles gas flows up to 250 m3/h and inlet gas temperatures up to 750°C with exceptional performance. This makes it an optimal choice for fuel cell systems, as well as applications such as waste heat recovery, biogas post-treatment, and cooling of hydrogen from electrolyzers.
