Alfa Laval wins SEK 85 million natural gas order in the U.S.
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply evaporative air cooler systems to a gas processing plant in the U.S. The order has a value of approximately SEK 85 million. It is booked in the Welded Heat Exchangers unit of the Energy Division, with deliveries scheduled for 2017.
The Alfa Laval Niagara’s evaporative air cooler systems will be used in two different steps of the process. They will be part of a refrigeration system to separate the natural gas into its individual pure component streams. They will also be part of the cooling process, where these streams are cooled into natural gas liquids and fractionated (distilled) into ethane propane and butane.
“Gas processing is an area where safe and reliable equipment is a must. This large order proves that our evaporative air cooler systems meet the high demands from customers in the gas industry,” says Susanne Pahlén Åklundh, President of the Energy Division.
Did you know that… ethane, propane and butane can be separated from the natural gas and then used, for example, as feed stock for petrochemical plants, for household heating or as fuel for vehicles?
