Alfa Laval's joint-venture Alfdex wins important contract with major global truck and bus manufacturer

LUND, Sweden, Jan. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Alfdex AB, a 50/50 joint venture between Alfa Laval and Concentric, has won a contract to supply electric disc separators to a major global truck and bus OEM. The contract further strengthens Alfdex's position as a market leader in disc separator technology. Production is scheduled to start in 2025 and total revenues are expected to exceed SEK 2 billion over the coming 10 years.

Alfdex has a long history as a market leader and provides reliable and high-performing solutions for the active cleaning of crankcase gases in heavy-duty truck engines. With the onset of even more stringent emission legislation, such as Euro VII, as well as new demands for CO2 reductions, Alfdex now supplies a range of electrically powered disc separators. These combine the robust, maintenance-free design of the original Alfdex separator with a state-of-the-art electric drive unit, enabling even higher performance and precise control via software.

For many years, the Alfdex oil mist separator has met the world's most exacting emissions standards. This new generation provides even better performance with lower energy consumption and will enable trucks and buses to lower their emissions which is beneficial from an environmental perspective.

Did you know… Alfdex separation technology uses the same principles as the separator invented by Gustaf de Laval, who founded Alfa Laval in 1883, to separate cream from milk.

About Alfdex

Alfdex is the world leader in reducing crankcase emissions from combustion engines by using an active separation system, referred to as the Alfdex g-Cleaner. The separation principle is based upon Alfa Laval's long experience in centrifugal separator technology. Alfdex has specialized this technology for separating particles and liquid droplets from gas. The majority of new heavy trucks in North America, China and Europe use Alfdex-separators, and today over 6 million heavy trucks are equipped with an Alfdex system, thereby preventing over 100 million litres of oil from being released into the environment annually. Recently, Alfdex has started venturing into new application areas, including thermal management for commercial vehicles. The company is a 50/50 joint-venture between Alfa Laval and Concentric AB.
