Alfa Laval Inc.

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Alfa Laval Inc. is a global company that provides industrial products for heat separation, heat transfer, and fluid transfer in energy, environment, transportation, and other industries. As a manufacturer and distributor of heat-related products, asbestos has been a component used for its thermo-resistant qualities. Former employees of Alfa Laval Inc. might be at risk of developing asbestos-related lung disease.

Asbestos Screening

Alfa Laval employees exposed to asbestos

Asbestos is a naturally formed mineral that has heat resistant properties. This particular quality, plus its durability has made it an attractive material for a various number of industries that have incorporated it in their products, up until 1980 when its use has been regulated. Regardless, during the manufacturing or maintenance process of products that contain it, small asbestos fibers get released into the air, contaminating it. If you are a former Alfa Laval employee, you need to pay attention to your health. Asbestos fibers can get caught in the lungs and accumulate over time, thus leading to the possible development of serious lung disease.

The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of the asbestos exposure which occurred at Alfa Laval are factory workers, insulators, maintenance workers, and boilermakers. However, veterans may also have been exposed to asbestos products manufactured by Alfa Laval, particularly those who served in the U.S. Navy as the majority of ships were constructed using asbestos products. In addition to pumps, these were the most common asbestos products manufactured by Alfa Laval during the last century.

Due to their use of asbestos, Alfa Laval is no stranger to lawsuits surrounding their faulty work environment that resulted in their workers' debilitating health. Many of their products were made using asbestos-containing insulation. Workers handling or manufacturing these products who have developed an asbestos-related disease can get compensated.

The process is simple and requires no litigation. You need to keep in mind though, that these cases have a statute of limitations on them, so you need to take action as soon as possible.
