Volvo Chooses Alfdex For Diesel Crankcase Gases

Posted on February 17, 2005
The Volvo Group has signed a development and delivery agreement for the Alfdex system, developed by Alfdex AB, jointly owned by Alfa Laval and Haldex. The agreement includes all the truck brands in the Volvo Group. The order value is approximately 400 MSEK during a five year period and serial deliveries are expected to begin before the end of 2005.

The agreement with the Volvo Group includes all truck brands, Volvo, Renault and Mack. Deliveries on a small scale have taken place to the South Korean market and serial deliveries are planned to start in the fourth quarter 2005.

The Alfdex system, which builds on Alfa Laval's centrifugal separation technology, is designed to remove crankcase gases --- the oil droplets and soot particles from the ventilation air in diesel engine crankcases.
