Alfa Laval Supplies Central Cooling to the Middle East


STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Aug. 23, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Alfa Laval -- a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling -- has received an order for plate heat exchangers with an order value of about SEK 100 million. The end customer is a large Petrochemical Corporation in the Middle East.

The plate heat exchangers will be a part of the construction of an ethylene and derivatives complex. The plate heat exchangers are for the central cooling water system that provides cooling for several chemical plants in the complex. The delivery will take place during 2007.

In a central cooling system fresh water in a closed loop provides cooling of process equipment. The fresh water in its turn is cooled down using water coming from the sea by means of plate heat exchangers.
