Alfa Secures Heat Exchangers Order for Petrochemical Plant in China

Alfa Laval has secured an order to supply its Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchangers, which will be used in a China-based integrated refinery and petrochemical complex.

The Alfa Laval Packinox plate heat exchangers will be utilised in mixed xylene production at a new aromatics unit in the petrochemical complex.

Alfa Laval president and CEO Lars Renström said the heat exchanger features a unique heat transfer capacity that is suited for high demands in the petrochemical and refinery market.

Renström said the heat exchanger is compact and energy efficient in spite of its large size.

The value of the heat exchangers order is $13.16m (SEK90m).

Delivery of the heat exchangers is expected to take place in 2010.
