Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply compact heat exchangers for the caustic evaporation plant of AkzoNobel in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The order, booked in the Process Industry segment or the Energy & Process segment according to the new organization for the Process Technology division, has a value of approximately SEK 120 million and deliveries are scheduled for 2014 and 2015 separator.
 
Alfa Laval’s compact heat exchangers will be used for concentrating caustic soda, an important ingredient in the chemical and petrochemical industries. The compact heat exchangers will re-use heat from different steps of the evaporation process, thereby maximizing the energy efficiency and minimizing the energy use.
 
“This is Alfa Laval’s largest caustic installation to date and it will include our compact heat exchangers in a set-up that makes the process extremely energy efficient,” says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.
 
Sodium hydroxide (NaOH), also known as lye or caustic soda, is a caustic base used in many industries, mostly as a strong chemical base in the manufacturing of pulp and paper, textiles, soaps, detergents and drain cleaners.
