AromaVap evaporation system


Let Alfa Laval customize a plate evaporation system to meet your exact requirements. Energy-saving and purpose-built, these systems improve thermal efficiency, achieve higher concentrations, boost uptime, and reduce costs. With a long tradition of optimizing plate heat exchangers, Alfa Laval gives you access to expertise and the vast resources of an experienced global sourcing and engineering organization.

Evaporation optimized by the experts 

  • Achieve higher concentrations while saving energy and adding value to your business 
  • Cut energy costs and improve process sustainability by adding effects and/or vapour recompression equipment 
  • Cut energy costs and improve sustainability with thermal vapour recompression, mechanical vapour recompression, or waste heat recovery solutions
  • Lower installation costs with compact, space-saving installations 
  • Get zero or minimum liquid discharge by combining with other Alfa Laval technologies




Lower your cost of ownership while increasing sustainability with evaporation systems from Alfa Laval. Tailored to your requirements, these are easy to configure, install, operate and maintain.

Pack high heat transfer efficiency and energy savings into evaporation systems, that are lower in height and weight than conventional evaporators. Versatile, energy-efficient and economical, these evaporators generally fit into the available space in existing buildings yet maximize product quality while minimizing fouling and waste.

Choose from a broad portfolio, backed by a proven track record, vast experience in thermal solutions and separation technologies, and a global service network
