Alfa Laval to supply heat exchangers for catalytic processing at Korea refinery

Alfa Laval has received an order to supply its Packinox heat exchangers from a refinery in South Korea, the Swiss company said on Monday.

The order value is about SEK 120 million ($17.1 million) and delivery is scheduled for 2013.

The Packinox heat exchangers will be used in catalytic processing sections in the production of mixed Xylenes used for synthetic nylons and PET bottles, among other things.

“The order confirms Alfa Laval's strong local presence in South Korea and long working relation with Korean EPC contractors”, said Lars Renström, CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.

South Korea is now the fourth-largest market for Alfa Laval, the company says, behind the US, China and the Nordic region.
