“Alfa Laval’s mission is to optimize the performance of our customers’ processes,” says Magnus Edmén, Head of Service, Business Unit Gasket Heat Exchanger at Alfa Laval. “Not just once, but time and time again. That’s really the thinking behind our ‘Take it further’ theme. Through technology, knowledge and partnership, we are working constantly to keep our customers and their processes moving forward.”
The Alfa Laval stand (D4 in Hall 4.0) will display a wide range of products and be staffed with solution experts. Focus areas will include:
-Energy efficiency - Energy use is a critical factor, both for the environment and for process economy. Alfa Laval heat exchangers and other solutions offer many ways to reduce energy footprint and to optimize the cost of energy-intensive processes.
-Productivity - Productivity is more than increasing production. Through innovations, online platforms, connected services and more, Alfa Laval helps customers maximize yields and create more efficient process cycles – all while reducing operating costs.
-Waste reduction - Managing wastewater and other waste streams is a constant challenge for process industry. Alfa Laval provides smart ways to reclaim resources and minimize waste volumes, often turning the latter into value.
-Maintenance - Achieving the lowest total cost of ownership takes collaboration throughout the product life cycle. Alfa Laval works closely with customers not only to maximize uptime and availability, but also to strengthen product performance.
Products on display
Visitors will be able to see many products at Alfa Laval’s ACHEMA stand, including:
The world’s most modern gasketed plate heat exchangers
Alfa Laval is bringing the most modern gasketed plate heat exchangers for industrial applications to the market. Our engineers and application experts will be at ACHEMA to present the latest addition to this high performing gasketed plate heat exchanger range: the Alfa Laval T25.
Packed full of innovations and features, the design is truly challenging the status quo of gasketed plate heat exchangers. With a development process entirely driven by the needs and feedback of customers, Alfa Laval can even better meet the demands for a reliable, more efficient heat exchanger that is also easy to maintain. The increased thermal efficiency also translates well to the increased focus on improving worker safety and reduced environmental impact of operations providing a compact unit and more sustainable energy usage.
Alfa Laval Culturefuge
Alfa Laval’s Culturefuge centrifugal separator is the market-leading solution for harvesting of fragile mammalian cells in biotechnology applications. At Achema, we will display the new UniDisc™ discs for the Culturefuge range and show how they improve hygiene by minimizing the number of dead legs. The UniDisc™ design also makes it possible to increase the total separation area and improve separation efficiency.
New centrifugal separator
Targeting industrial fermentation applications, the new centrifugal separator combines high separation area with continuous solids discharge, making it the perfect choice for high-density broths. Its hermetic design ensures very gentle product handling, high separation efficiency and low energy consumption. The new centrifugal separator is suitable for mid-sized batches, and completes Alfa Laval’s wide range of separators for bio-based chemicals production.
