Alfa Laval to supply heat exchangers at Middle East refining complex

Alfa Laval has won an order to supply its Packinox heat exchangers to an integrated refinery-petrochemical complex in the Middle East, the company confirmed on Monday.

The order, booked in the process industry segment, is worth approximately SEK 65 million ($10 million). Delivery is scheduled for 2014 and 2015.

The Packinox heat exchangers will be included in a process to remove non-desirable substances, such as sulfur, from the feedstock.

“This order confirms the continuous investments in energy-efficiency we see in the process industry," said Lars Renström, CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. "Our Packinox heat exchanger has a proven performance and is a perfect fit for the demanding applications in the refinery and petrochemical industries."

The Packinox heat exchanger can handle temperatures up to 550 degrees Celsius, can be up to 25 meters high and is more compact than competing, traditional shell-and-tube technology, according to company officials.
