Alfa Laval wins SEK 60 million refinery order in Algeria

Monday, Jan 11, 2010

Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has received an order for Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchangers from an Algerian refinery. The order value is about 60 MSEK and was booked late December 2009. Delivery is scheduled for 2011.
The Alfa Laval Packinox plate heat exchangers will be used in the catalytic processing section in the production of mixed Xylenes, which, among other things, can be used for production of PET bottles.

“There is no product that can match the Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchanger. This massive – but still compact – welded heat exchanger offers an unique energy efficiency especially well suited for the high demands within the refinery and petrochemical industries,” says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.

Did you know that… Alfa Laval Packinox plate heat exchanger for this type of application can handle temperatures from 80°C up to 530°C? By replacing traditional shell and tube heat exchangers with one single Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchanger a refinery can save between SEK 10 and 20 million per year in reduced energy costs.
