A maker of heat transfer equipment, Alfa Laval, based in Lund, Sweden, has received two large heat exchanger orders, one in Singapore and the other in China.
As a result of an order valued at $17.4 million, the company’s Packinox heat
exchanger will be installed at a petrochemical plant in Singapore. The units will
be used in a catalytic processing section for production of mixed xylenes, which
are used for PET bottles and synthetic nylons. Singapore now is one of Asia’s leading
locations for petrochemical production.
The other order, worth $7.9 million, is for compact heat exchangers at a petrochemical
plant in China. They will be used in the condensation phase in the production of
phenol, which mostly is used for plastics and related materials as well as cosmetics.
