Natural rubber latex is derived from tapping rubber trees, and collecting the exudate. The field latex collected can either be processed as dry rubber or in the liquefied form known as latex concentrate. Alfa Laval has been involved with the design of centrifuge to concentrate field latex to latex concentrate from the very early days of the industry.
In addition to providing the right equipment for process optimization, equally important is our presence in all-major latex concentrate producing countries in the world. This makes us more than a supplier of equipment; it enables us to be a partner to our customers during the whole lifetime of the equipment. Efficient maintenance management from Alfa Laval will generate noticeable cost savings.
