W and WD Series

Alfa Laval W and WD Series includes two types of models. The W models have been designed specifically for whey skimming. Our WD models can combine whey skimming and clarification in one stage. The W and WD Series is available in a wide range of sizes with innovative features to ensure efficient, reliable, and cost-saving operation.

Dairy PX 18 A, H, C, W, WD and BM Series

Advanced technology that brings new benefits to whey processing

  • 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

Two superior types of whey separators

The purpose of whey separation is to recover fat, while ensuring that the skimmed whey is as free from fat as possible. Low fat content is important for facilitating the downstream treatment and enhances the value of the whey. Alfa Laval’s W and WD separators have been designed for exactly this purpose. The WD Series combines clarification and skimming in one step, thanks to a clarification section inside the bowl that makes it possible to utilize pre-filtered whey (i.e., without using a whey clarifier first). Combining these in one step reduces both investment costs and the installation footprint.

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.
