Alfa Laval is a manufacturer of equipment that enhances the efficiency of production processes.

All products of the company are created based on three key technologies that have been improved and modernized for a century and a half, but their essence remains unchanged. They are:

 

• Heat exchange

• Separation

• Flows control

 

It is all about regulation of various media states (gas, liquid), without which many technological processes were not possible.

 

HISTORY

AB Separator company was founded in 1883 and later emerged the corporation Alfa Laval Group. The first developments were related to technical solutions in the food industry. Thus, in 1883 a milk separator was installed in the dairy industry. Another innovation from Alfa Laval was the installation of the first continuous centrifuge for baker's yeast production (1890).

Today, Alfa Laval manufactures equipment that is successfully applied in various industries: food, chemical, pharmaceutical, engineering and metallurgy, biofuel production, energy, woodworking and oil and gas industry.

In addition, Alfa Laval is a recognized leader in the heat exchange equipment market. Brand’s equipment provide temperature regulation both to ensure comfortable human life (air conditioning, ventilation of offices, commercial facilities, shops) and to maintain necessary conditions in various production processes - from metals smelting to wine production.
