AC130 is designed for refrigeration duties with capacities ranging from 20 to 60 tons and can perform as an evaporator or condenser in water chillers or ground water heat pumps. From Alfa Laval Thermal Inc., it has an Equalancer system that distributes refrigerant evenly across the plate and through the plate channels, permitting close temperature approaches and decreasing the need for superheating. A dual-circuit system interlaces two independent refrigerant circuits with one water circuit so liquid circuit and refrigerant circuits maintain constant contact.
