Air conditioning and heat pump solutions

When it comes to air conditioning and heat pumps, energy efficiency together with requirements for new refrigerants with low GWP, Global Warming Potential, are essential. Alfa Laval is working close with customers and universities to accelerate the development and to be able to offer plate heat exchangers that are designed to meet and the new application regulations.

Maintaining an optimal indoor climate 

In the air-conditioning chiller itself, various system manufacturers incorporate Alfa Laval brazed plate or shell-and-tube heat exchangers as liquid evaporators and/or condensers. In bigger buildings, additional Alfa Laval heat exchangers are installed. Gasketed plate heat exchangers with very close temperature approach are used in the heating or cooling system for various intermediate duties. Air liquid coolers or condensers are installed in the roof to remove excess heat.

Enabling sustainable, efficient and safe heating and cooling with propane

Together, Alfa Laval and Simaka Energie- und Umwelttechnik GmbH designed an innovative heat pump solution for a Swiss supermarket chain. The system is built with three high-capacity Alfa Laval brazed plate heat exchangers and uses low-GWP propane as refrigerant, delivering long-term sustainability, energy efficiency, and a safe operation.
