District cooling uses one central source to cool several buildings. Alfa Laval plays a key role in this convenient and cost-efficient cooling solution. Our heat exchangers and system solutions are located in every building of a district cooling network to transfer cooling energy from the pipeline to internal systems.
The benefits of district cooling
District cooling, the most convenient method for production and distribution of cooling in commercial applications, delivers both environmental and economic benefits. Calculations show that customers switching to district cooling can reduce their operational costs by up to 45 percent compared to using chillers installed in small individual systems, including considerable savings on electricity, service and repairs.
Economical, flexible and quiet cooling
Alfa Laval district cooling systems are offering energy-efficient solutions at numerous locations. The close temperature approach of Alfa Laval gasketed plate heat exchangers maximizes efficiency, so minimal energy is lost during heat transfer. The quiet, vibration-free systems are easy for property owners to use and offer great operating flexibility and cost-efficiency, as each building can regulate its own cooling to exactly match current needs. The advantages for end customers can be further enhanced if combined with an Alfa Laval district cooling solution in a complete, optimised system such as Alfa Laval Maxi.
