BITZER has delivered the first new condenser produced at its own factory in Germany, following the acquisition of Alfa Laval's shell and tube evaporator and condenser business in 2018.
BITZER acquired the Alfa Laval portfolio of shell and tube evaporators and condensers for air conditioning and refrigeration applications in April last year.
The Rottenburg-Hailfingen site has been expanded, adding more production capacity and jobs. The factory has produced heat exchangers and pressure vessels since 1985. BITZER has produced condensers for fresh and seawater applications since the 1950s. The company says the purchase of the Alfa Laval’s portfolio has made it the world's largest independent manufacturer in the shell and tube heat exchanger market.
