Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order from a leading multinational brewery group, to supply a process solution for one of its plants in India. The order is booked in the Food Technology & Life Science segment, has a value of approximately SEK 60 million and delivery is scheduled for 2016.
The order is for a complete process line, including separators, heat exchangers, mixers and fluid handling equipment. The process line will, among other things, handle yeast propagation, fermentation, maturation and filtration. Once installed, this will be the first brewery in India to use Alfa Laval’s unique mixing technology to reduce the fermentation processing time and increase energy efficiency.
“This order is interesting in many ways since it involves a unique technology, a complete process line and also one of the major players in the brewery industry, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “It proves our position as a reliable supplier.”
Did you know that… by applying forced mixing, such as Alfa Laval’s IsoMix technology, the processing time for fermentation can be reduced by up to 30 percent?
