Efficient temperature control is essential to achieving a pleasant indoor climate in homes, offices, and public facilities such as hospitals, hotels, sports centers, and shopping malls. The challenge is to achieve the ideal temperature while simultaneously reducing energy consumption and the environmental impact.
Alfa Laval is the leading supplier of heat exchangers for heating, cooling, and air-conditioning. Many of the world’s famous buildings use our heat exchangers to maintain a comfortable indoor climate.
In the USA, Alfa Laval offers the AlfaQ Series of AHRI-certified (Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute) plate heat exchangers which are certified according to AHRI Standard 400. This assures customers that the heat exchangers they choose will perform exactly as specified.
The company’s gasketed and brazed plate heat exchangers have become key components worldwide for district heating and district cooling, central heating and cooling of individual buildings as well as domestic tap water and swimming pool heating.
District heating and district cooling are continuously gaining ground due to their energy efficiency. In district heating, heat is generated in a central boiler plant and transferred to a series of buildings. A wide range of sources including oil, natural gas, biofuel, and geothermal sources provide the heat. Our heat exchangers play a vital role in providing efficient heat transfer between the two systems.
Our plate heat exchangers in a district cooling network act as both a means of transferring a cooling effect to air handling units and, for very tall buildings, as pressure interceptors between the main network and the local system inside each building.
Alfa Laval has received 100% success rate in the AHRI Certification Performance Program for over a decade. View our complete range of AHRI-certified heat exchangers. Learn more about AHRI certification programs.
