Alfa Laval to supply heat exchangers at AkzoNobel caustic soda plant

06.17.2014  | 

Alfa Laval’s compact heat exchangers will be used for concentrating caustic soda, an important ingredient in the petrochemical industry. The compact heat exchangers will re-use heat from different steps of the evaporation process, thereby maximizing the energy efficiency and minimizing the energy use.

Alfa Laval has won an order to supply compact heat exchangers for the caustic evaporation plant of AkzoNobel in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, officials announced on Tuesday. 

The order, booked in the process industry segment, has a value of approximately SEK 120 million, and deliveries are scheduled for 2014 and 2015.

Alfa Laval’s compact heat exchangers will be used for concentrating caustic soda, an important ingredient in the chemical and petrochemical industries. 

The compact heat exchangers will re-use heat from different steps of the evaporation process, thereby maximizing the energy efficiency and minimizing the energy use.

“This is Alfa Laval’s largest caustic installation to date and it will include our compact heat exchangers in a set-up that makes the process extremely energy efficient,” said Lars Renström, CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.
