H series

Alfa Laval H Series dairy separators are specifically engineered for milk skimming. These hot milk separators include industry-leading innovations to help dairies of all sizes achieve premium milk quality at low operational costs. This includes Alfa Laval’s unique Hermetic Design, which ensures smooth product acceleration for improved skimming efficiency and unmatched process flexibility.

Alfa Laval H Series

Superior skimming efficiency to preserve milk quality

  • Alfa Laval’s unique bottom-fed Hermetic Design provides superior skimming efficiency and maintains premium product quality
  • The bottom-fed design reduces shear forces for gentle product treatment that preserves the size of the fat globules
  • Hermetic seals on inlet and outlet prevent oxidation and reduce the foaming of the milk
  • Easy adaptation to process conditions provides increased production flexibility and efficient CIP
  • Energy savings of up to 60% thanks to the Hermetic Design

A wide range of hot milk separators

The Alfa Laval H Series has been specially developed for milk skimming. With a wide range of models, there is an H Series separator that is suitable for any dairy. They are also the market’s only separators with Alfa Laval’s bottom-fed Hermetic Design, ensuring far greater energy efficiency compared to traditional centrifuges. This is due to a combination of gentle product treatment and the use of efficient built-in pumps instead of paring discs. The result is more sustainable separation that simultaneously reduces your carbon footprint and your OPEX. Built with high-grade, corrosion-resistant stainless steel, our H Series hot milk separators are also proven to meet the highest hygienic standards with low total cost of ownership over a prolonged equipment lifecycle.


Saving energy, cutting costs

Alfa Laval separators with Hermetic Design are the most energy-efficient on the market. When our unique eMotion technology is added, minimized air friction brings additional power reduction. Combined, our unique design and technologies can deliver up to 70% energy reduction compared to non-hermetic alternatives on the market.
