More sustainable industrial processes through efficient separation

Industrial processes rely on clean, pure liquids, but these same processes often produce fine droplets and particles that can cause contamination. Alfa Laval separators represent an outstandingly efficient solution to remove unwanted oil, water or particles in a sustainable way.

Innovation through proven technology

  • Safe, efficient and reliable separator performance in even the most challenging applications
  • Removes oil, water or the finest particles, droplets and contaminants from your liquids
  • Fast separation saves time and money, while optimizing OPEX
  • Improves sustainability by prolonging lifetime, enabling liquid recovery and reuse
  • Reduces overall waste and emissions


Alfa Laval separators solve expensive and troublesome separation problems by removing the finest droplets, contaminants and particles. They reduce waste and emissions while helping to extend equipment lifetime. Our centrifugal separators also provide shorter process response times and less process inventory.

Separation for success

Many manufacturing industries use filtration to clean liquids and remove contaminants, but separators from Alfa Laval can provide a more efficient, more sustainable and more cost-effective separation solution. Our separators can offer improved performance that’s suited to your specific needs, while reducing waste and improving sustainability. Alfa Laval separators are better for your business, and for the environment.

Sustainable separation

It’s important for any business to reduce its environmental impact. Alfa Laval separators can remove oil, water or particles in seconds without producing additional waste, with a significantly lower energy consumption compared to conventional centrifugal separators. Liquids can be recovered and reused, which reduces required transports for disposal and further improves overall sustainability.

Steel satisfaction

Outokumpu, the global leader in stainless steel, was able to maximize production efficiency while reducing its carbon footprint by using a range of Alfa Laval equipment. The new way of working also results in less scrap and better quality in the final products.

Keeping cutting fluids clean

The Alfa Laval production unit in Eskilstuna improves the efficiency of 40 metal working machines by cleaning the cutting fluids. The fluids are efficiently cleaned by a separator in an integrated in-loop system.
