Alfa Laval S-separator

Friday, 18 February, 2011 | Supplied by: Alfa Laval Pty Ltd

The latest version of the Alfa Laval S-separator offers robustness and greater efficiency that allows the same amount of oil to be handled with a smaller separator. The product is used for engine protection and separation efficiency, particularly in working with demanding residual fuel oils.

The increased efficiency of the S-separator is the result of enhancements in the separator disc stack. Increased separation area, disc modifications and other improvements allow up to 20% more flow with retained separation performance. Since these changes do not affect the separator’s small footprint, ship operators can now handle the same amount of oil with a smaller separator.

Additional changes can be found in the S-separator drive, including sturdier friction blocks, a more resilient bearing system and a more powerful lubrication system. Together, these modifications further boost the unit’s reliability.

The unit features wear-reducing CentriLock snap ring and CentriShoot discharge system, as well as the Alcap function, which automatically detects and adjusts to the nature of the oil.

Like its predecessor, the S-separator also features the modular EPC 60 controller and is part of the company’s S and P Flex delivery concept. For shipyards, this means an easily configured control system with ethernet and bus communication, plus a flexible scope of supply based on block components or custom-built modules.
