Stainless Steel Price Hike to Affect Heat Exchanger Prices
“Purchases of all stainless steel products are now noticing that components are now more expensive than a few months ago. This price increase forces manufacturers like Alfa Laval to raise prices to compensate for increased price in the basic metals. It has forced us to increase the prices for plate heat exchangers between 3% and 9%. The only fortunate part is that we are not alone in this price increase; our competitors are purchasing their metal on the same market and will eventually be forced to follow suit,” Abrahammsson said.
