"German pharmaceutics giant buys Swedish high-speed disk centrifuge systems"

PRESS RELEASE

German pharmaceutics giant buys
Swedish high-speed disk centrifuge
systems

German pharmaceutics manufacturer, Hoechst AG has ordered eleven high-speed disc centrifuge systems from Swedish based Alfa Laval Separation AB. The multi-million DEM order was won in fierce competition with other manufacturers following intensive tests which were carried out at Hoechst’s Insultec plant in Frankfurt. The systems will be used in the production of human insulin. The order is further confirmation
of Alfa Laval Separation’s long-standing cooperation with Hoechst which already uses the company’s decanters in its manufacturing processes.

The order comprises five different types of separation systems which offer a combination of a high G-force and large solids handling capability. One of the systems, the BTPX 205, is a small production-size pilot plant centrifuge which is steam sterilizable and built for total containment.
Another is the BTAX 215, a large disk-stack, solids- ejecting centrifuge with very high separation efficiency. Several models, including the largest of the five, CHPX 517, also feature a jacketed hood for product cooling and noise reduction.
Alfa Laval, one of Sweden’s most well known interna-tional companies, is an independent Group within Tetra Laval which also includes Tetra Pak, Tetra Laval Food and Alfa Laval Agri. The Group operates world-wide in 110 countries and has annual sales of DEM 2 962 million.
The Hoechst Group’s principal activity is the manufacture of pharmaceutics, chemicals and polymers for consumer and industrial use. Of the Group’s approximately 40 subsidiaries, 18 are located in Germany. The company’s 1994 turnover amounted to DEM 49 637 million.
