The AlfaBlue BN series is a wide range of heavy-duty air cooled ammonia condensers for air conditioning and refrigeration applications. AlfaBlue condensers are available for both horizontal and vertical air direction, either in single (BNM) or dual (BND) coil execution.
An innovative coil design provides excellent heat transfer at minimal refrigerant charge. AlfaBlue BC condensers are fitted with smooth stainless steel tubing. Available with two Alu-fin types:
- Turbo fins for maximized capacity
- Industrial power fins (IF) for long lasting performance
Available in different fin thicknesses and fin spacings. Separate connections in the D series provide the opportunity for independent operation of both condenser coils.
Frame construction provides high rigidity for protection against vibration and thermal expansion. Casing and framework of corrosion resistant pre-galvanized sheet steel (corrosion resistance class C4), epoxy coated white RAL 9002 on both sides. Separated fan sections.
High efficiency AC or EC fan motors, available in four fan diameters (630, 800, 910 & 1000 mm) and five noise levels, power supply 400/50/3. Motors with external rotor, protection class IP 54 according to DIN 40050. Integrated thermo contacts provide reliable protection against thermal overload.

How it works
Alfa Laval finned coil air heat exchangers have been designed to achieve an optimized exchange of thermal energy between air and a refrigerant or fluid. The ‘heart’ of our air heat exchangers is the finned coil, built up from a circuit of interconnected tube serpentines and fins to increase the heat exchanging surface. Thanks to the combination of key design variables (coil materials, coil geometry, casing design, fan type), air units are very versatile heat exchangers with a great variety of applications in many industries. Alfa Laval supplies finned coil air heat exchanger products for a wide variety of applications.
Air coolers & air-cooled condensers
Air coolers and air-cooled condensers are key components in air cooling and airconditioning systems. On the refrigerant side the most common media are a brine or an evaporating refrigerant like H(C)FC, ammonia or CO2. A chilled brine may be supplied from a chiller that is potentially located far away, but a liquified refrigerant must come from a nearby condensing unit. When an evaporating refrigerant is used, the cooling coil is the evaporator in the vapour-compression refrigeration cycle (‘direct expansion’ or ‘DX’ system).
