LUND, Sweden, Mar 06, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchangers to a petrochemical plant in China. The order value is approximately SEK 170 million and it is booked in the Welded Heat Exchangers unit of the Energy Division. Deliveries are scheduled for 2017 and 2018.
The heat exchangers will be used to recover energy in the production process of mixed xylene, an important ingredient for the manufacturing of industrial chemicals and plastics products.
"Compared to alternative solutions our Packinox heat exchangers are compact and very energy efficient and hence perfect for applications in the refinery and petrochemical industries," says Susanne Pahlén Åklundh, President of the Energy Division.
Did you know that… one single large Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchanger takes up less than one fourth of the space needed for an alternative solution based on tubular heat exchangers?
