Where to use it

Alfa Laval eDrive is typically offered for separator systems for brewery and dairy industry.


How eDrive works

Limiting the total energy consumption by utilizing both ends of the separator makes it possible to position a small energy-efficient motor inside the machine. Unlike a typical gear-drive system with up to seven bearings and three shafts, the eDrive with its compact, space-saving design has only one shaft with three bearings.
