Alfa Laval showcases new solutions and service portfolio at PIPOC 2015

At the MPOB International Palm Oil Congress and Exhibition (PIPOC 2015) in Kuala Lumpur, from 6-8 October, 2015, Alfa Laval – a global supplier of palm oil solutions – presents new processing solutions from milling, to effluent treatment, to refining with focus on high yield, waste upcycling, minimum impact to the environment and reliability – all of which delivers peace of mind with Alfa Laval’s 360° service portfolio.

Alfa Laval has for many decades provided the technologies, experience and engineering capabilities that enable players in the palm oil and vegetable oil industries to operate their key processes at maximum efficiency with best product yield and minimum environmental impact.

Ever since the 1960’s, Alfa Laval has pioneered the processing technology of palm oil, transforming the business landscape from smaller soap-making activities to include modern commercial-scale facilities for cooking oil, to today’s speciality fats, micro nutrients and oleochemicals,” says Seppo Hyvonen, Regional Manager Alfa Laval.

“With a presence in all major palm oil-producing countries, Alfa Laval is more than just a supplier of equipment. Our strategically placed resources that have extensive experience in palm oil processing technology help the industry generate cost savings through efficient maintenance management, as part of Alfa Laval’s complete service portfolio”.

At Alfa Laval’s stand no. 62-65 at PIPOC, experts from Alfa Laval are ready to offer the insights on how Alfa Laval’s innovations can improve palm oil processing and refining that yields more benefit to both the operators and environment. The complete sustainable palm oil solutions tailored to different needs and have been widely recognized in the industry will also be presented to PIPOC visitors.

For milling: Robust and reliable: the disc-less Alfa Laval PAZD 10 separator

The Alfa Laval PAZD 10 separator is designed to recover waste oil from sterilizer condensate. It can also be used for oil recovery from the heavy phase of the decanter. It can recover almost all free oil, even if it is only present in a very small amount in the feed.

Its unique “disc-less” design does not hinder it from good oil recovery efficiency, the absence of bowl discs means that there will not be any blockages from non-oily solids and impurities and hence, improves the separation efficiency of the bowl. With optimized protection against wear, PAZD 10 is very resistant to erosion and able to optimize its performance longer due to the durable material.

Feel and touch the real-life bowl displayed at Alfa Laval booth and be inspired by its innovation and efficiency.

For effluent: Tailored solutions for treatment of palm oil mill effluent

For treatment of palm oil mill effluent (POME), i-DW decanter centrifuge efficiently desludges anaerobic ponds, thus reducing the biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and amount of suspended solids going to the aerobic ponds. Final polishing with membrane bio-reactors (MBR), the most advanced wastewater treatment technology, further ensures maximum reduction of BOD to meet final effluent discharge parameters.

As the latest addition to Alfa Laval decanter family, the simplicity of i-DW decanter ensure an efficient, simple to install, easy to maintain and straight forward to operate machine, yet excellent and stable performance.

For refining: Highly efficient steam boiler specially for deodorizing process

The Alfa Laval Aalborg High Pressure Natural Circulation (HPNC) steam boiler is designed to comply with the rigorous specifications of the vegetable oil industry in deodorizing process for refining of vegetable oils and fats, and operates efficiently as an integrated unit of any refining process plant. The high performance boiler provides steam at high pressure and temperature to ensure an efficient deodorizing process. High quality instrumentation and a state-of-the-art Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) based control system ensure reliable operation throughout the plant lifetime.
