Year after year of robust performance

In 1993, a Japanese refinery installed an Alfa Laval Packinox combined feed/effluent heat exchanger in its CCR platforming unit. The heat exchanger has performed according to its original specifications ever since — for 27 years at the time of writing. There has never been any mechanical problems and the required maintenance has consisted of standard inspections and chemical cleanings at plant turnarounds.


Quick response ensured uptime

Technicians at a refinery in the USA detected a tightness issue in an Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchanger during a turnaround. Alfa Laval sent a supervisor and a welding expert to the site, and within ten days the heat exchanger was repaired and ready for recommissioning. This meant the plant could go back online as originally planned without delay.
