Pressure breaker

As part of Alfa Laval’s energy efficient solution for cooling tall buildings, gasketed plate heat exchangers serve as pressure interceptors to protect equipment such as chillers and air conditioning units against excessive pressure.

How to relieve pressure and ensure safety in skyscrapers

Placing gasketed plate heat exchangers on different levels throughout a skyscraper limits the pressure on HVAC piping systems and other equipment. Resulting in consistent cooling on all levels of the building.

The height of efficiency

For maximum energy efficiency, pressure breakers need to perform with a minimum of temperature losses. Alfa Laval gasketed plate heat exchangers ensure superior heat recovery and minimal losses in transferring the cooling media in the complete building – even in extraordinary high constructions. Our heat exchangers are performing this role in the world’s 10 tallest buildings.
