Alfa Laval - Separation, Heat Transfer and Fluid Handling

Alfa Laval supplies products and process solutions to industries in the fields of energy, the environment, food and beverages.

The company has customers in more than 100 national markets and has its own sales companies in 50 countries. Alfa Laval is a global market leader in three key technologies: separation, heat transfer and fluid handling.

Alfa Laval holds more than 200 patents. Around 2.5% of the annual turnover is invested in research and development, resulting in around 35-40 product releases every year.

Separation, heat transfer and fluid handling

Alfa Laval manufactures a number of products that heat, cool, separate and transport various kinds of substances and products like oil, water, chemicals, beverages, food and pharmaceuticals. The company's key products are found in three core technology areas: separation, heat transfer and fluid handling. These are supplemented by in-depth knowledge of processes and applications.

High-speed separators, decanters, centrifuges, membranes and filters

Alfa Laval has been a leader in separation technology since the company was founded. Early on, a development process for ideas, products and applications was put in place. The separation technology is crucial for the ability to separate different kinds of fluids from each other or remove particles from fluids and gases. Our product portfolio is based on high-speed separators, decanters, centrifuges, membranes and filters. Transporting fluids in a secure, hygienic and efficient way is important in industries that work with food and beverages, biotech, medicine and hygiene products.

Transportation of fluids for hygiene applications

Reliable pumps and valves guarantee that the right amount of fluid is transported to the right place at the right time. Alfa Laval has a complete portfolio of pumps, valves, installation materials and tank cleaning equipment. The company is a world leader in the transportation of fluids for hygiene applications.

Alfa Laval's heat exchangers are used both for HVAC and for cooling diesel engines. To put it briefly, heat and cold are important processes in most of the company's customer segments. In recent years, Alfa Lava has raised its environmental profile; using Alfa Laval's products and solutions, customers in many different industries can reduce their use of water and energy, reduce their carbon dioxide emissions and thereby spare the environment.

Alfa Laval's vision is to optimise the performance of our customers' processes and thus make them more profitable. This is achieved either by increasing the production capacity with existing resources or reducing the use of resources while maintaining the same production volume. Alfa Laval takes responsibility for the whole chain, from product and installation to operation optimisation and service.

Environmental engineering company

In recent years Alfa Laval has raised its profile as an environmental engineering company. However, this isn't an attempt to ride a trend - quite the opposite. For more than 125 years, Alfa Laval has supplied customers with innovative solutions that generate, recycle and preserve natural resources in industrial processes. Alfa Laval's products help to reduce emissions on land and at sea, secure fresh water supplies, streamline energy use and find new renewable fuel sources.

Innovation, quality and knowledge of the application will prove that Alfa Laval doesn't just sell a product, but a solution based on the needs of the customer.
