Alfa Laval - AFPX

AFPX

AFPX separators are used in meat, fish and blood processing industries to purify and enhance recovery of valuable protein fractions, fats and oils. These robust and high performing separators are especially designed for extremely demanding separation duties in order to meet the tough requirements of the food industry and exceptionally high hygienic standards. With an AFPX separator from Alfa Laval, you can achieve exceptional, high-quality fats and oils with 99.7% purity.

For demanding separation duties in fish and meat industries

  • Easy to operate and maintain
  • Excellent wear and corrosion resistance
  • Longer running times which ensures increased yield
  • Cleaning in place (CIP) facility to keep the costs down
  • Small footprint

The protein business is highly competitive, and to be profitable you need to maximize quality and yield while keeping operating costs low. At Alfa Laval we have more than 30 years’ experience from designing rendering, fat melting and protein recovery separation systems. We know how you can reduce your environmental impact and get the extra percent of product out of your raw material that make all the difference to your bottom line.

Key features of the AFPX range of centrifuges are their ability to handle high flow rates, high solids content and high-temperature processing. These functions make it the ideal choice to handle the tough conditions encountered in the animal and fish processing industries.

Depending on duty and feed composition, the AFPX disc stack separator can be configured in three different executions: concentrator, purifier and skimmer.

In addition, the AFPX  combines a high G-force, high sludge capabilities and automated operation.

Applications

The AFPX was designed to discharge solids intermittently, while at the same time separating two intermixed and mutually insoluble liquid phases of different densities. The centrifuges comes in a series of optimized executions that  are suitable for a considerable number of duties, including  separating fish press water, stick water and extracts. Other applications include the purification of fish oil and liver oil, animal fat, peel oil, and similar products.
