Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply compact heat exchangers to a refinery in China. The order has a value of approximately SEK 210 million. It is booked in the Welded Heat Exchangers unit of the Energy Division, with deliveries scheduled for 2018.
The heat exchangers will be used to recover energy and to increase the yield in the refinery.
“I am pleased to announce this large order for our energy-efficient compact heat exchangers,” says Susanne Pahlén Åklundh, President of the Energy Division. “We have a wide range of reliable products that are more than qualified to meet the tough demands from customers in the refinery and petrochemical industries.”
Did you know that… in this application compact heat exchangers (such as spiral and welded plate heat exchangers) are up to 50 percent more energy-efficient than the traditional shell-and-tube heat exchangers?
