Alfdex AB, a 50-50 joint venture between Alfa Laval and Concentric, has won a contract to supply an electric oil mist separator to a major global truck OEM. This contract with one of the world’s largest leading truck manufacturers proves the new electric disc separator offers market-leading technology.

Alfdex has a long history of providing reliable and high performing solutions for the active cleaning of crankcase gases in heavy-duty truck engines, a market the company leads globally. With the onset of even more stringent emission legislation, as well as new demands on CO2 efficiency, Alfdex has invested in a new range of electrically powered oil mist separators. These combine the rugged and maintenance free design of the original Alfdex separator with a state-of-the-art electric drive unit, enabling even higher cleaning performance controlled precisely by software. As upcoming proposed legislations increasingly emphasize the need for maintenance free and durable solutions, the Alfdex electric separator is a perfect match.

“This is an important contract for Alfdex because it confirms that the next generation crankcase gas separators have earned the trust of the market,” says Susanne Pahlén Åklundh, President of Alfa Laval’s Energy Division. “The new electric separators are more efficient and will enable trucks to lower their emissions even further, which is beneficial to both customers and society – and in line with Alfa Laval’s commitment to clean technologies.”
