ALPEMA® ~ home

Introduction

Brazed Aluminium Plate-Fin Heat Exchangers are very compact exchangers built to a high specification for use in air separation plants and a wide range of other petrochemical and refrigeration applications.

ALPEMA is the Aluminium Plate-Fin Heat Exchanger Manufacturers' Association, which currently represents the world's five major manufacturers of brazed aluminium plate-fin heat exchangers (BAHXs).

The ALPEMA Standards are the key reference source for engineers working in any of the principal application areas for BAHXs including process, chemical, mechanical and maintenance engineering. The Standards are also an excellent information tool for purchasing and project management. They apply throughout a project's lifecycle from feasibility studies to commissioning and are a staple for every Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor.

Current ALPEMA Standards and June 2021 Addendum

The 3rd edition of the ALPEMA Standards is now available to purchase on the Standards page. The latest Addendum to the 3rd edition can be downloaded here. The Addendum is updated regularly, and the current version is dated June 2021.

ALPEMA Responses to Requirements in the 1st Edition of API 668 are provided on the Standards page.

Request to customers to safeguard confidential information

From time to time, customers provide ALPEMA Members with confidential information that has been obtained from other manufacturers. We recognize that this is done to try to be helpful but stress that any information sent to a customer in confidence must be treated with care. We have produced a short document on this topic.
