Alfa Laval showcases sustainable solutions at ARBS Exhibition

Alfa Laval is pleased to showcase its industry-leading heat transfer products, solutions and services, designed to help system builders and contractors stay ahead of market trends in sustainability and decarbonisation, at the Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Building Services Exhibition, 16-18 August, Melbourne.

Addressing the challenges of new refrigerants

The world is phasing down hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants. This means adapting to new, low Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerants such as hydrofluoroolefins (HFO), together with natural refrigerants such as ammonia and carbon dioxide, as well as the inherent challenges of these new systems.

Alfa Laval will showcase its innovation and R&D in the development of gasketed, brazed and fusion bonded product lines with larger, high-pressure heat exchangers that work with a low charge of refrigerants and improve workplace safety for next-generation refrigerant systems. Speak with Alfa Laval’s engineers to find out what’s new.

Reducing carbon footprint of the built environment

Every building has an impact on the environment. Buildings use 40% of the world’s energy. That’s why it’s important that buildings are measuring their energy use to reduce their environmental impact.

With developers and builders seeking to push the energy efficiency of the built environment to new heights, HVAC systems are vital to achieving ratings and other energy efficiency benefits. Certified performance of heat exchangers is one way to guarantee performance when tendering for projects. Alfa Laval plate heat exchangers are certified to the world’s most recognised standard, the AHRI (Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute) certification, and other energy efficiency boosting technologies.  

Reducing energy consumption also results in lower electricity costs and a demonstrable commitment to the environment. Discover at ARBS how Alfa Laval heat exchangers can help customers reach NABERS Energy ratings.

Boosting energy efficiency by recovering waste heat

Every refrigeration system has waste heat which includes the heat dissipated by the superheated discharge refrigerant and also the hot compressor lubricating oil. The waste heat from superheated discharge refrigerant can be reclaimed by installing a desuperheater in the discharge line of the refrigeration system and also an oil cooler can be installed in the refrigeration system to reclaim the heat from the hot lubricating oil.

In addition to the above, the COP of a refrigeration system can be improved by installing a Liquid Subcooler in the refrigeration system, which is a heat exchanger between the suction line and the liquid line in a refrigeration system. Learn more about Alfa Laval's leading semi welded heat exchangers, brazed heat Exchangers and fusion bonded heat exchangers for these applications and refrigeration systems of different sizes.
