Alfa Laval wins Algeria refinery order

ALFA LAVAL HAS received an order for Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchangers from an Algerian refinery. The order value is about US$8mn and was booked late December 2009. Delivery is scheduled for 2011.

The Alfa Laval Packinox plate heat exchangers will be used in the catalytic processing section in the production of mixed Xylenes, which, among other things, can be used for production of PET bottles.
"There is no product that can match the Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchanger," said Lars Renstroem, president and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. "This massive - but still compact - welded heat exchanger offers a unique energy efficiency especially well suited for the high demands within the refinery and petrochemical industries."
Alfa Laval stated that its Packinox plate heat exchanger for this type of application can handle temperatures from 80 - 530°C. The product is designed to replace traditional shell and tube heat exchangers.
