Alfa Laval Packinox Explosion forming

This animation shows explosion forming of high-strength plates with long, reliable lifetime for Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchangers. The pattern on a Packinox heat transfer plate is formed by the shockwave from an underwater explosion. This one-step operation minimizes residual stresses in the plates, making them mechanically stronger. The end result is very high operating reliability and longevity.
