REDDITCH, England, Jan. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Alfdex AB, a 50/50 joint venture between Alfa Laval and Concentric has successfully received a contract to supply electric disc separators to a major global truck and bus OEM. The contract further strengthens Alfdex’s position as a market leader in disc separator technology. Manufacturing is anticipated to start in 2025 and revenues in total are expected to exceed 2B SEK over the coming 10 years.
Alfdex has a long history as a market leader in providing reliable and high-performing solutions for the active cleaning of crankcase gases in heavy-duty truck engines. With the onset of even more stringent emission legislation, such as Euro VII, as well as new demands for CO2 reductions, Alfdex has added a range of electrically powered disc separators to its product offering. These combine the robust, maintenance-free design of the original separator, with a state-of-the-art software controlled electric drive unit, enabling the solution to achieve significantly higher performance.
This is Alfdex’s second major win with its new electric separator technology, with a contract out to 2035 further demonstrating the market’s long-term confidence in the technology.
“This win represents another significant breakthrough for Alfdex” says Martin Kunz, President and CEO of Concentric AB. “The Alfdex oil mist separator has been a market leading technology, used to meet the world’s most exacting emissions standards for many years and this new win demonstrates their ability to develop new technologies to meet the evolving needs of the market. This new generation of products will provide better performance and lower energy consumption for customers in the years to come, helping them to lower their emissions- an increasingly important consideration as we drive towards net zero”.

Alfdex is the world leader in reducing crankcase emissions from diesel engines by using an active separation system. The separation principle is based upon Alfa Laval’s long experience in centrifugal separator technology for systems that separate liquids from liquids and solid particles from liquids. Alfdex has exploited this special technology and refined it to separate particles and liquid droplets from gas. Three out of four new heavy trucks in North America and Europe are using Alfdex-separators. Over 5 million heavy trucks are today equipped with an Alfdex-system.
