Boilers & Economizers | Alfa Laval Aalborg
A century of skill in heat supply
Alfa Laval’s Aalborg steam and heat generation solutions represent a unique body of knowledge. They stand for 100 years of innovation, from energy-efficient boiler elements to composite boilers and low-pressure thermal fluid systems.
From waste heat to added value
Waste heat recovery is a unique opportunity that benefits your bottom line as much as the environment. This is why – with 50% of a main engine’s fuel energy going to heat flow – using exhaust gas to generate steam is so attractive.
Alfa Laval’s Aalborg waste heat recovery systems deliver documented fuel savings and CO2 reductions of up to 14%. Our extensive experience lets us design and install systems that maximize energy gains without any compromise in onboard safety.
As well as recovering heat from main engine exhaust, Alfa Laval is expanding the Aalborg portfolio by focusing on previously neglected sources of waste heat. Today, waste heat recovery from auxiliary engine exhaust can meet steam requirements during port stays, and in some cases even at sea.
The Alfa Laval Aalborg “Hot Sellers”:
Combiboiler: Aalborg OC-Tci
The high-performance Aalborg OC-TCi is a space saving combination boiler fired with both oil and exhaust gas. Preassembled and installed vertically, it consists of an oil-fired module with helix tubes and an exhaust gas fired module with smoke tubes.
The boiler provides effective self-cleaning, thanks to its built-in TCi (Turbo Clean, intelligent) technology and its relatively high gas velocity compared to other composite boilers.
Oil fired boiler: Aalborg OS-TCi
The oil-fired Aalborg OS-TCi is a high efficiency boiler which is intended for steam production. It is designed to high-efficiency, user-friendly be self-cleaning and have environmentally friendly maintenance.
The oil-fired Aalborg OS-TCi is supplied as a vertical, preassembled boiler unit. The boiler’s built-in TCi (Turbo Clean, intelligent) technology makes it self-cleaning to the highest possible degree, and what little maintenance remains is easy and has a low environmental impact.
Exhaust gas boiler: Aalborg XS-2V and Aalborg XS-7V
The Aalborg XS-2V economizer is designed for utilisation of exhaust gas from the diesel engines for production of steam. The design is tailormade according to exhaust gas demand and temperature. Aalborg XS-2V comes with its own steam space while the Aalborg XS-7V is designed without steam space.
The economizer is carried out with the smoke tubes welded to the tube plates at both ends, and this robust design can, in emergency cases, withstand running dry. The Aalborg XS-2V with its own steam space and is able to operate independently from the oil-fired boiler/steam drum.
The sizes of the economizers depend on required steam capacity, amount of exhaust gas, temperature, and working pressure.
Exhaust gas economizer for auxiliary engines: Aalborg XS-TC7A
Aalborg XS-TC7A is an exhaust gas economizer for auxiliary engines. It is designed to significantly reduce the oil consumption for the oil-fired boiler.
Exhaust gas from the auxiliary engines has been an overlooked energy source. But because the cooler exhaust of long-stroke main diesel engines can be insufficient to support steam needs, it is becoming more attractive. Auxiliary engine exhaust gas can fulfill steam requirements during port stays or even en route. At today’s high fuel prices, the Aalborg XS-TC7A exhaust gas economizer has a typical payback time of 1–1.5 years.
Exhaust gas economizer for main engines: Aalborg XW
The Aalborg XW is a water tube, forced circulation exhaust gas boiler/economizer. It is specially designed for heat recovery from diesel engine exhaust gas but the basic design suits numerous applications.
The heating surface is made up of double gilled tubes as standard, with a spacing that minimizes soot build-up. In addition, there is an efficient cleaning system that uses steam or compressed-air soot blowers.
Thermal Oil Heaters: Aalborg TFO & Aalborg EX
Alfa Laval Aalborg is the world’s market leader in supplying marine thermal fluid heating systems. Within this product range is the Aalborg TFO, which is a oil- or gas-fired thermal fluid heater. In addition to engineering and production of the thermal fluid heater units, which we deliver complete with burner and control system, Aalborg EX is a forced-circulation vertical heater for recovering heat from exhaust gas.
This is only a small selection of the superior Alfa Laval product range when it comes to boilers, economizers or heaters. The wider range, more information and technical details can be foud on the Alfa Laval web page, or simply call Karberg & Schmitz.

Inert Gas Generators
Alfa Laval Smit Combustion is a saturated inert gas generator with low pressure, which produces inert gas by combusting fuel oil with air controlled combustion chamber.
Smit inert gas generators are typically found on chemical tankers and product tankers. The inert gas generators produces inert gas by combusting fuel oil with air.
Monitored by a specially designed oxygen analyzer and indirectly cooled by seawater, the combustion process is soot-free, thanks to a unique Ultramizing system (blue flame) that ensures complete combustion even in practical-load conditions.
How it works
Fuel oil and air are combusted in the generator to produce hot inert gas with an oxygen content of 2-4%. The combustion process is soot-free thanks to the unique Smit Ultramizing system, which ensures complete combustion even in partial-load conditions down to 25%.
In the scrubber section of the generator, the inert gas is directly cooled by a spray and cooling system, which at the same time washes out the sulphur oxides. The cooled inert gas then flows from the generator to the cargo tank through a deck water seal. This seal is a safety device that continuously prevents any backflow of gas from the cargo tank towards the inert gas system in the engine room. To prevent overpressure or vacuum in the cargo tank, a pressure/vacuum-breaker is installed.
The picture represents a standard Inert Gas Generator (FU type) complete with air fans, fuel pumps, deck water seal and P/V breaker.
Alfa Laval Smit LNG/LPG is a dry inert gas generator with low pressure and low dew-point.
The most complex inert gas generators are installed on LNG carriers, where very dry inert gas is required and consist of four main components: generator, cooler, chiller and dryer unit.
The cooler, which has gas contact surfaces of SUS 316 for lifetime service, takes up minimal space due to the low-temperature output of the generator. Using water from the chiller, it stabilizes the heat radiation in all conditions.
The dryer unit is redundant and provides additional security. The entire installation is horizontal and allows easy maintenance, although maintenance is seldom required.
How it works
For gas- and chemical transportation the inert gas needs to be of high purity. For many applications, oxygen levels of 0.5% or even 0.1% are required, in combination with a water dew-point of about -45 °C and sometimes lower (-65 °C). Also here, the burner is the heart of the system as the inert gas needs to be absolutely soot free in the first place.
When the gas leaves the generator, it has the right composition, but it is saturated with 100% water and has to be dried.
The drying process takes place in two steps. In the first step of the refrigerant cooler, the gas temperature is lowered to 5 °C which results in condensation of a great quantity of water.
In the second stage the inert gas is dehumidified further in a double vessel type drying unit using activated alumina or adsorbent. The whole process operates under a pressure of about 0.3 bar(g).
Precise Tank Measuring | API MArine
Welcome to API Marine!
API Marine sets the standard by bringing proven measurement technologies of the 21 century into use on tank installations within marine and industry. This provides customers with improved and new higher level of accuracy and efficiency in tank measurements.
UTS™ – Ultrasonic Tank Switch
Universal Level Switch UTS™ has extended operating temperature range from –200°C to +450°C and is designed for level detection in cargo holds, wells & service tanks.
Ultrasonic Tank Switch UTS™ is made of stainless steel and is used for level detection of liquids in vessel tanks, storage tanks, bilge water tanks, cofferdams as well as for control of water ingress to vessel’s compartments.
The operating principle of UTS™ is based on an acoustic wave technology, providing outstanding results in extreme operating temperatures. Accuracy of measurement is ensured regardless of shape of tank, type of liquid or liquid temperature.
UTS™ is installed outside the tank/pipe with only a metal rod inside the tank/pipe. Acoustic waves in the metal rod created by piezo-electric transducer ensure transmission of signals. When liquid in the tank reaches the probe on the rod, the emission of sound waves is muffled. This change is picked up by the piezoelectric transducer and a signal is transmitted to the corresponding alarm. Having only the metal rod inside the tank and no mechanical or moving parts means no maintenance is required.
UTS™ is characterized by high resistance to sticky products, high robustness and shock resistance and increased reliability under dynamic load and vibrations due to reinforced rod and electronic unit of new generation. UTS™ is also supplied in a special “Arctic” version, for applications in harsh environments with ambient temperature of down to –60°C without heating the device.
TLA™ – Tank Level Alarm
Tank Level Alarm is used for detection of high (95%) and high-high (98%) levels in tanks.
Built on the same patented acoustic wave technology as UTS™, TLA™ features high level of accuracy, reliability and customizability.
TLA™ represents a two-point level switch with alarm levels defined by length of rods, which are produced on request. Built-in test buttons are used for performing functionality test before filling in the liquid.
TGD™ – Tank Gauging Device
TGD™ – Tank Gauging Device – a multifunctional deck sensor is designed for simultaneous measurement of level, temperature (up to 15 points), pressure and density (option) in cargo tanks.
Operation principle of TGD™ is based on the patented principle of Guided Low Frequency (GLF™) wave propagation, which allows equally precise measurements along tank height with any shape of tank and type of liquid.

Azienda Chimica Genovese (ACG)
ICCP & MPGS
ACG is an Italian supplier of equipment for the marine industry. In 65 years of activity, ACG has installed more than 28.000 units of Anticorrosion (ICCP) and Antifouling (MGPS) Systems and is known as one of the most competitive and reliable manufacturers of electrochemical systems (ECOLCELL).
ECOLCELL – Electro chlorination
Antifouling treatment based on electro chlorination has proved to be the most efficient and the most economical solution.
ECOLCELL electro chlorination system combats macro fouling same as copper anodes and combats in addition micro fouling in the seawater lines on board of ships, oil-rigs and power plants.
Marine fouling, shellfish, seaweed, slime, bacteria, etc. find their way into sea water cooling systems on board usually as micro-organism, settles and grows and if not combated in-time go on to block pipes, filters, valves, intake grids, heat exchangers etc.
ECOLCELL operates by using an electrolytic cell containing Titanium anodes in mixed metal coating (MMO) to transform the Sodium Chloride (NaCl) in seawater into Sodium Hypochlorite (NaOCl) through a process of electrolysis. The antifouling agent is injected into the sea chests from where it is dispersed through the whole sea water system. Only a small concentration of this Sodium Hypochlorite is required to combat marine fouling, normally inbetween 0.1 to 0.3 ppm.
The system operates on the principle of electrolysis: a low voltage is applied to seawater circulation in a cell, producing Sodium Hypochlorite without any addition of chemical products.
No Macro Fouling
No Micro Fouling
COPRON – Antifouling
ACG also developed a traditionell antifouling system, COPRON, based on Copper & Aluminium Anodes mounted in the sea chest or sea water filter, to prevent marine fouling inside of the cooling sea water circulation.
How it works
As copper is a more noble metal than the material used in the pipe-work, the presence of copper ions in the seawater will cause galvanic corrosion of the pipes, but by fitting an aluminium (Al) or iron (Fe) anode in close proximity to the copper anode, one can achieve some corrosion control by creating an anti-corrosive layer on the internal surfaces of the piping.
As they are installed in the sea chest, they have to be replaced during dry-docking. Hence, the anodes are usually designed for a lifetime of 2-3 years up to 5 years.
The cost of replacement represents considerable maintenance costs, unfortunate often neglected by the ship owners when evaluating the costs of various systems.
No Micro Fouling
Return of investment
MARIMPRESS – Impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP)
MARIMPRESS ICCP is used to protect ships‘ hulls, floating dry-docks, oil-rigs and other submerged steel structures from corrosion.
The system operates by continually measuring the potential of the submerged steel surface using hull-mounted Zinc reference electrodes. If this potential starts to rise above the preset value, the rectifier supplies the correct amount of DC current to hull-mounted activated Titanium anodes needed to maintain the preset value. In this way, not only the hull, but when technically earthed also the rudder, propeller, shaft and stabiliser fins are protected from corrosion.
This system uses Titanium MMO coated anodes as opposed to sacrificial Zinc or Aluminium anodes, which last longer and cost less to replace.
MARIMPRESS makes use of titanium anodes which give the system a life of more than 10 years.
