Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has received an order for compact heat exchangers from a refinery in Russia. The order value is about SEK 70 million and delivery is scheduled for 2011.

Alfa Laval’s compact heat exchangers will be used in the distillation process of the refinery, where the crude oil is pre-heated for further refining into high-value products such as gasoline. By using Alfa Laval’s compact heat exchangers it is possible to recover heat from other parts of the process and use it to preheat the oil, thereby achieving a highly energy-efficient solution.

“The last years we have seen increased investment in energy efficiency by the process industry”, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “Russia is one of our most important refinery markets and this order is another example of their investments in heat-recovery duties for energy optimizations.”

Alfa Laval’s compact heat exchangers can recover up to 95 percent of the heat, that otherwise would be wasted, representing 35 percent increased efficiency compared with competing shell-and-tube technology.

Did you know that… Russia has the third largest oil refining capacity in the world and that Alfa Laval’s equipment can be found in nearly 90 percent of the Russian refineries?
