Energy

Customer case: Alfa Laval

Alfa Laval’s production unit in Eskilstuna improves the efficiency of 40 metal working machines by cleaning the cutting fluids. The fluids are efficiently cleaned by a separator in an integrated in-loop system.

Customer case: Outokumpu

Outokumpu, the global leader in stainless steel, was able to maximize production efficiency while reducing its carbon footprint by using a range Alfa Laval equipment. The new way of working also results in less scrap, and better quality in the final products.

Marine

Alfa Laval lube oil treatment

Lubrication oil is an essential part of vessel operations and plays an important role in engine efficiency and overall engine lifetime. The cleaner you can keep the lubrication oil, the better it is for the engine. Effective cleaning also means the oil needs to be replaced less often, saving time and money in the long-term. Alfa Laval can offer the optimal solution to ensure your lubrication oil stays cleaner and lasts longer, while helping to ensure that your engine stays protected.

Engine protection with Alfa Laval separators

Fuels is the single biggest operating cost of a ship, and professional fuel management is essential to avoid serious breakdowns. Hear from marine industry experts about how Alfa Laval separation technology helps lower costs and mitigate risks at sea.

Alfa Laval PureNOx: EGR water treatment with a difference

EGR has always been simple, compact and cost-effective but with the latest PureNOx developments, those advantages are even greater. PureNOx systems are now optimized according to the fuel sulphur level: low-sulphur (LS) or high-sulphur (HS).

Alfa Laval PureBilge: Bilge water treatment for real-life conditions

Alfa Laval PureBilge is a high-speed centrifugal oily water separation (OWS) system that cleans large volumes. Its superior separation performance stems from the patented XLrator spiral inlet, which prevents oil droplets splitting and additional emulsions forming.

Alfa Laval self-cleaning centrifuge (total discharge)

Lube oil centrifugation enables you to discard waste without the need to buy disposables such as filter cartridges. This makes lube oil cleaning more convenient, cost-effective and environment-friendly.

Alfa Laval solid-retaining centrifuge

Lube oil centrifugation uses a centrifugal force 5,000 times stronger than gravity to separate particles of different densities and continually directs cleaned oil back into your process. The water is released while the contaminating solids are stored separately. If your processes result in low amounts of solid waste, you can generally remove it manually. Higher waste amounts are automatically cleaned. Lube oil centrifugation can also handle large cleaning volumes and a temporary high influx of water.

Longer lasting and cleaner lube oil with Alfa Laval MIB 503 Separator

Aboard the Prins Maurits – a Dutch fishing vessel – Chief Engineer Auke van Slooten has doubled the life expectancy of his main engine’s lube oil, saving 1,400 L of oil a year and nearly two hours of cleaning time per week using an Alfa Laval MIB 503 Separator.
