Unlock sustainability with Alfa Laval separators

Sustainable dairy production starts with making sure that precious resources don’t go to waste. This goes for raw milk, but also for the electricity used to power equipment and the water used to cool and clean it. Thanks to a strong focus on efficiency in every aspect, Alfa Laval’s dairy separators come with built-in sustainability.

Economize power usage with Alfa Laval separators


Making every drop count

Alfa laval’s unique Hermetic Design provides low shear in the feed inlet zone, securing gentle product acceleration into the separator. Equally low shear inside the bowl ensures gentle product handling during the separation process. This minimizes product loss and increases separation efficiency. Making sure that not a drop of milk is unnecessarily wasted.

Using power wisely

Hermetic Design also enables big savings in energy consumption. Thanks to the improved fluid dynamics of air-tight centrifuges, Alfa Laval separators run on 60% less energy than traditional alternatives. To give energy efficiency an extra boost we have developed eMotion. By minimizing air friction in the separator bowl, eMotion brings the energy saving to 70%. Tangibly reducing the environmental impact of dairy production.

Cutting back on water use

Alfa Laval dairy separators are self-cleaning. Thanks to Hermetic Design and our innovative UniDisc disc stack, cleaning is faster and uses less water and CIP liquid than traditional separators. Additional water savings can be made with eMotion. By removing air around the separator bowl, eMotion reduces friction. Cutting the amount of water needed to cool the separator during operation.
