  • Description

    In Skansen's large exhibition hall a noteworthy exposition called "Our Spinning World" has just opened. AB Separator, parent company of the Alfa-Laval/De Laval group of companies, is celebrating its 75th anniversary, 75 years of progressive development to better supply mankind with the fruits of Gustaf de Laval's ingenious invention - the continuous- working centrifugal separator. Constantly striving for perfection and still wider application of centrifugal force, the Alfa-Laval/De Laval Group today leads the World in the manufacture of separators. Here are a few pioneer separators.

    Yes, mechanization has also reached the dairy farm. Here is a model of the mechanized cow. This is how milking is done in the new, open cow-sheds, where the cows roam around free. Special temperature-controlled milking stalls are complemented by fine, clean milk-rooms. In performance and in numbers, Alfa-Laval milking machines are truly World leaders.

    This complete dairy plant, which is exported to all parts of the Globe, not only pasteurizes and homogenizes market milk but is used for other treatments as well.

    Industrial separators are another important line. Here are just three of the more than 150 different De Laval types. One is for beer, the second for latex (the sap of the rubber tree), the third for starch.

    More than 100,000 De Laval marine separators are purifying oil aboard motor-ships. Generally speaking, every commercial ship now has at least one of these separators.

    Perhaps you were familiar with the foregoing, but that AB Separator also makes Volvo car bodies and bath-tubs and is Europe's biggest consumer of stainless steel is very likely absolute news to you.

    The closing vignette was a spiral made from radiator ribs, an optimistic vision of the future with the Andromeda nebula as a symbol of eternity.
