what_icon.jpg WHAT? Alfa Laval is a world leader in three key technologies

HEAT TRANSFER ꟷ Alfa Laval’s heat exchangers transfer heating or cooling from, for example, one liquid to another. They recycle heat, optimize customers’ energy consumption, cut costs and reduce their environmental impact.

SEPARATION ꟷ The technology is used to separate liquids from other liquids and solid particles from liquids or gases. The offering includes separators, decanter centrifuges, filters, strainers and membranes.

for_whom_icon.jpg FOR WHOM? The company’s products are needed in most industries

The need to heat, cool, transport and separate arises in many industries. Take almost any sector: food, energy, the environment, engineering, pharmaceuticals, refineries or petrochemicals – Alfa Laval can help in the majority of them. Customers are reached through three sales divisions: Energy, Food & Water and Marine.

how_icon.jpgHOW? They are produced and distributed through a shared supply chain

The Operations division is responsible for the Group’s production related procurement, manufacturing, distribution and logistics on a global basis. In other words, Operations ensures that anything sold by the three divisions – everything from heat exchangers and separators to pumps, valves and membranes – is produced and delivered in line with the promise made to the customer.
