Danfoss, a leading manufacturer of high-efficiency components and controls for air-conditioning, heating, refrigeration, industrial, and water systems, recently named Lars Rasmussen as vice president of its heat exchangers business.
In this role, Rasmussen will focus on continuing to grow and develop Danfoss’ heat exchanger product portfolio, research and development efforts, and on contributing to the growth of heat exchangers for refrigeration and air-conditioning applications worldwide.
“As a key component in our comprehensive portfolio of HVAC system solutions, Danfoss is continuing to invest in the development of heat exchanger technology and in the support of our customers in the US and around the world,” said Rasmussen. “Today our portfolio includes brazed plate, micro plate, and microchannel heat exchangers, but we are now also investing in the development of microchannel evaporators that will improve heat transfer, reduce air pressure drop and refrigerant charge, and eliminate formicary corrosion.”
“We are dedicated to ensuring we have the right technical capabilities on board to best support our customers—and are very excited to soon open our new Application Development Center in Tallahassee, Florida, where we will work with equipment manufacturers to test and optimize technology to meet the performance and efficiency challenges of the future.”
