Alfa Laval will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of its first marine separator at SMM this year.

The company’s stand will showcase their latest innovations for new fuels, energy efficiency, environmental compliance and reducing operational cost. There will also be new offerings in oil cleaning and service, including the new Alfa Laval hydraulic control oil (HCO) filter.

Besides exhibiting new solutions in the stand, Alfa Laval will look back at the one that preceded them all. It was exactly 100 years ago that the US Navy asked Alfa Laval to develop a centrifugal oil-cleaning separator, which was delivered in 1917.

To commemorate the anniversary, visitors will be invited for a 20-minute stand tour each day at 16:30. Afterwards, happy hour will begin with a signature drink and the sounds of a period jazz band.
