Alfa Laval wins natural gas processing order
Published by Tom Mostyn,
Alfa Laval has won an order to supply air cooler systems to a gas processing plant in the US. The order has a value of approximately SEK 110 million and is booked in the Welded Heat Exchangers unit of the Energy Division, with deliveries scheduled for 2020.
The order comprises Alfa Laval Niagara’s air cooler systems which will be used as part of a refrigeration system to separate the natural gas into its individual pure component streams – ethane, propane and butane.
“Safety is key in all industrial processes and extremely important in the demanding applications in natural gas treatment. Our reliable air cooler systems are recognised for their safe performance which gives peace of mind to our customers in the gas industry,” says Susanne Pahlén Åklundh, President of the Energy Division.
Ethane, propane and butane can be separated from the natural gas and then used, for example, as feedstock for petrochemical plants, for household heating or as fuel for vehicles.
