Air conditioning

For air conditioning and chiller applications, Alfa Laval offers a complete range of plate heat exchangers. These are primarily used as evaporators and condensers, and they can be customized according to specific demands. We can also supply units designed as economizers or subcoolers for use with large screw or centrifugal chillers. Thanks to very low pressure drop, our heat exchangers can additionally be used in desuperheater positions.
