The Australian Tallow Products Evaporation Plant (EVP) installed at the Brooklyn facility was a collaboration between Matrix Process Solutions and Alfa Laval Australia Food and Water (F&B) technologies division.
The installation used the latest in evaporation technology, utilising Alfa Laval prefabricated skid based solutions, controlled by utilising IFM AS-i interface technologies, integrating Alfa Laval load cells, Alfa Laval ThinkTops, plate heat exchanger evaporation effects, and the full range of Alfa Laval sanitary equipment.
The project commenced with basically an empty room provided by the client, with the equipment arriving on site and needing to be un-containerised.
The scope of works included supplying power from the main MCC, building and positioning the effect supports on site, installation of all the evaporation vessels, effects and vacuum skid.
Collaborations such as these allow the client to receive best practice technologies from the most respected supplier of quality evaporation solutions in the world, while also receiving local know-how and solutions to deliver industry-leading technologies on time and under budget.
