Alfa Laval Service Agreement and genuine Spare Parts boost uptime

By switching from non-genuine Spare Parts to Alfa Laval Spare Parts, Jalanta Fish Meal & Oil Products reduced their maintenance costs by 65%, and boosted uptime.

DATE 2023-11-28

Jalantha has five Alfa Laval separators and four decanters installed. To get the production lines up and running and to rectify issues caused by the use of non-genuine spare parts, Janatha turned to Alfa Laval and signed a Service Agreement.

Alfa Laval Service Agreement cut maintenance costs by 65%

Instead of reactive maintenance, the Alfa Laval Service Agreement saves time and money through Preventive Maintenance. The Service Agreement cut the maintenance costs for Jalantha by 65%. 

Instant pay off with Alfa Laval genuine Spare Parts  

Due to the short eight-month processing season, any plant downtime results in huge production losses and the non-genuine spare parts used due to fast delivery times, caused frequently unplanned downtimes. Providing more competitive lead times and securing the plant to operate at full capacity during peak season, Alfa Laval Service Agreement ensures that worn parts are replaced at regularly scheduled intervals and that the right Spare Parts are available before replacement is required. 

We had been using low-cost non-genuine spare parts for years but noticed a direct correlation to frequent breakdowns, maintenance and downtime." ANAND KUNDER, CO-OWNER, JALANTA FISH MEAL & OIL PRODUCTS

Repair services for optimized performance

Alfa Laval also recommended comprehensive repair services to optimize the five Alfa Laval separators and decanters at the plant which was conducted at the local Alfa Laval service centre.

Planned maintenance with an Alfa Laval Service Agreement and genuine spare parts reduced our total maintenance costs by 65% and optimized plant uptime.”
