Reconditioned Alfa Laval Freshwater Generator Plates

Separator Spares & Equipment offers service for Alfa Laval JWP-16, Alfa Laval JWP-26, Alfa Laval JWP-36, Alfa Laval Aqua, Alfa Laval Aqua Blue, Alfa Laval Dolphin, and Alfa Laval DPU freshwater generators. We provide a range of services, from preventive maintenance and troubleshooting to upgrades. The Alfa Laval freshwater generators use vacuum distillation to provide a constant supply of high-quality freshwater from seawater.

Many ships, rigs, and remote land-based installations experience problems with the installed Alfa Laval freshwater generators. In most cases, the reason for these problems is natural scaling build-up in the evaporator, plugged tubes, breakdown of internal coatings, corrosion of evaporator shell, and/or pinholes in piping and tubes. Common issues are insufficient capacity of existing freshwater generator, high cost for operation, maintenance, and/or repairs, increasing cost of good quality bunker water, and high salinity of produced water.

Separator Spares & Equipment offers a wide range of services to help you get the most out of your Alfa Laval freshwater generator. We can provide preventive maintenance, troubleshooting, replacement titanium plate packs, gaskets, repairs, and upgrades to increase capacity and efficiency.

If you’re experiencing problems with your freshwater generator, don’t hesitate to call Separator Spares & Equipment. We are a reliable solution for your freshwater system needs. We have the experience and expertise to get your freshwater generator running like new again. With regular inspection and maintenance, we can help you lower costs, extend the life cycle of your equipment, and achieve reliable performance.

Alfa Laval Titanium Plate Pack Cleaning

The Alfa Laval freshwater generator titanium plate corrugated design provides superior surface area and compactness for maximum heat transfer rates. This plate technology results in a higher temperature drop across the titanium plates, leading to other issues that need to be addressed at regular intervals. For example, the natural scaling process or other deposits on the titanium plates that reduce heat transfer efficiency could occur over time if left untreated. As scaling builds up over time and in severity, it could ultimately lead to plate damage and cause the equipment to fail. Regularly monitoring and cleaning the Alfa Laval titanium plate pack will keep them running efficiently for a more extended time.

How does a single-stage freshwater generator work?

Single-Stage-Freshwater-Generator

Single-Stage Freshwater Generator

The freshwater generator works on the well-known vacuum distillation principle. Waste heat from the main engine on board is utilized as the heating medium for evaporation. The evaporation occurs in the evaporation plate pack (plate bundle) located in the lower part of the housing. A portion of the incoming seawater evaporates due to the high vacuum inside the housing. The generated vapor is cleaned from seawater droplets while flowing through a wire mesh demister.

The condensation takes place in the condenser plate pack (plate bundle) located in the upper part of the housing. The condenser is cooled by seawater (condenser cooling water). The latent heat from condensation is transferred to the seawater. The condensation/evaporation temperature varies with the seawater cooling water temperature.

A small portion of the heated seawater is utilized as feedwater for the evaporator bundle. The biggest part is used as a driving medium for the combined brine/air ejector. This ejector has two functions: (1) extraction of the surplus seawater (brine) out of the housing and (2) vacuum creation by the exhaust of the non-condensable gases. The distillate quality (salinity) is monitored in the control panel. If the salinity exceeds the adjusted setpoint, the distillate is rejected back to the evaporator via a solenoid valve.

The most common heat source for freshwater generators is the waste heat of the main engine jacket cooling water. The capacity range is dependent on the heating medium and cooling water temperatures. For a single-stage Alfa Laval JWP fresh water generator, the heat required to produce one (1) liter of fresh water is 620-720 kcal (2.6-3.0 MJ). For a two-stage Alfa Laval JWP fresh water generator, you will need 350 kcal (1.5 MJ) to produce one (1) liter of fresh water. Other sources may be utilized as the main source or auxiliary.

Convert seawater into high-quality freshwater by vacuum distillation for drinking, domestic, and process utilization on ships and rigs and in small power stations.

If you want to replace your old Alfa Laval freshwater generator, the GEA Westfalia freshwater generator is an excellent option. In these cases, we can often suggest new, state-of-the-art technology that can enhance the performance and reliability of your process. If you would like a quotation, please send us your technical documentation. The connections are already established and can easily be utilized for a new freshwater generator. This minimizes pipework required and, in turn reduces installation costs. However, the piping dimensions and the available pressures have to be checked.
