Born to create the difference

Innovative separation solutions for dairy processing

Alfa Laval was born out of the invention of the modern milk separator. And we have never stopped reinventing this technology. Today we offer a complete portfolio of solutions, covering the full scope of dairy separation applications. Built with unique innovations, our separators are engineered to help dairies achieve reliable uptime and improved yield, while maintaining the highest hygienic standards. At the same time, reductions in energy consumption help you shrink both your costs and your environmental footprint. Ultimately, it’s about matching dairies with exactly the right tool to boost profitability. That’s why we say that every Alfa Laval separator is born to create the difference for our customers.
