Alfa Laval VO 10, VO 20, VO 30


The use of Alfa Laval disc stack separators in the vegetable oil and refining industries goes back to the end of 19th century. The application ranges from fats and oil refining to palm oil washing.


The VO separator range is designed for and can be adapted to applications such as degumming, neutralization and washing.


  • Robust and reliable design
  • Easy to operate and maintain
  • Low water consumption
  • Optimum separation by adjustable interface and liquid seal stability by using the CentrizoomTM


The separator consists of a machine bottom part which includes a gear drive and a lubrication system. The machine top part includes the bowl, bowl casing and outlets for the separated liquids and discharge sludge.

The separator is top fed and the bowl is of sediment ejecting type. By adjusting a positioner on the heavy phase outlet, the operator can reduce or enlarge the paring diameter of the paring tubes. This patented innovation is called CentrizoomTM and makes it possible to manually adjust the position of the separation interface during operation, facilitating optimal separation.

All metallic part in contact with the process liquid are made of stainless steel. Gaskets and seals in contact with product are made of nitrile rubber. The separator is designed for a standard highly efficient electric motor with rigid coupling and variable frequency drive (VFD).
