The new compact heat exchanger, Alfa Laval Compabloc+
Alfa Laval launches innovative boundary-breaking heat transfer technology for heavy industry duties (Video)
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – expands its range of compact heat exchangers for heavy industry applications. The new Alfa Laval Compabloc+, which can handle significantly higher pressure, is a more energy-efficient alternative to the traditionally used technology in the demanding refinery and petrochemical industry.
The new compact heat exchanger, Alfa Laval Compabloc+, with an innovative and patent-pending sealing concept, can handle pressure up to 60 bars, which is 20 bars more than the original market-leading Alfa Laval Compabloc heat exchanger. Compabloc+ can thereby address the significantly larger share of the extremely demanding applications in the refinery and petrochemical industry. Compabloc+ is a more energy-efficient alternative to the traditionally used shell-and-tube heat exchangers and can replace up to four shell-and-tubes for the same duty, making it a very competitive alternative for the industry.
“In these extraordinary times, I am very pleased to announce that with this expanded range of our compact heat exchangers we can address applications with a potential which we have not been able to target before,” says Susanne Pahlén Åklundh, President of the Energy Division. “Our compact heat exchangers are very energy-efficient and when installed in heavy duties as in refineries and petrochemical plants they save energy and reduce CO2 emissions. That is beneficial both for our customers’ bottom line and for the environment.”
According to IEA (International Energy Agency) energy efficiency is predicted to be the main contributor to reaching the Paris Agreement, and the yearly investments in energy efficiency across the buildings, transport and industry sectors add up to $240 billion.
Fishing and seafood industry
Alfa Laval offer a broad range of solutions for extracting and refining fats, oil and proteins from surplus raw material in fish, e.g. for the production of high-value fats and proteins for food ingredients.
Fish meal processing
Alfa Laval has been a major force throughout the development of industrialization of fish meal manufacturing and the focus on volume production. Our core technologies are equally suitable for the subsequent period of consolidation and focus on efficiency.
Fish protein concentrate processing
Producing functional, edible proteins from fish by-products
Fish and shellfish are an ideal source of hydrolysed flavour protein. Such proteins are increasingly in demand in the food industry as ingredients that can replace meat and water, and on account of their fat-binding properties.
Fish silage processing
Ensuring the most profitable results from your fish processing operations
Fish offal and waste fish can be still be put to good use in places where there is no fish meal factory. Instead of being thrown away, they can be made into fish silage. Fish silage usually contains about 15% protein, and is used in the same way as fish meal in animal feed. It can also be subsequently separated into its oil, ash and protein components, for use in the food industry.
Krill processing set-ups you know you can rely on
Krill represents the largest biomass of any animal species on the entire planet, yet is only in the beginning of modern commercial exploitation. The main commercial harvesting of krill takes place in the Southern Ocean around Antarctica, on the basis of carefully monitored and strictly limited international licenses.
