Carrier has added a new product, the 30XAV, to its AquaForce® line of chillers with the introduction of Greenspeed® intelligence. The addition of Greenspeed intelligence to the already reliable 30XA chiller will help contractors, consulting engineers and building owners meet the efficiency demands of today and the future. Carrier, which operates as Carrier SCS (France) in U.K, is the world’s leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, and is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp.
The addition of variable-speed condenser fans and variable-speed screw compressors allows the AquaForce with Greenspeed intelligence to match load conditions, delivering exceptional part-load performance. Additionally, the chiller features new Touch Pilot™ controls, which allow the building owner to easily monitor and log trend data, access the unit through a Web browser and regulate the chiller while accurately maintaining fluid temperatures. It also offers a full-load Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) up to 3.4 and a European Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (ESEER) up to 4.9.
The high efficiency at full and part loads, the extended operating envelope and the fast Capacity RECOVERY™ capability make the 30XAV an ideal solution for a wide range of uses, from the typical comfort applications like hotels and office buildings, to the typical mission-critical applications, like process cooling, data centers or hospitals.
“This launch demonstrates Carrier’s continued leadership as the company continues to innovate and develop new technology for customers’ specific applications,” said Didier Genois, director, engineering and marketing, HVAC Europe. The Carrier AquaForce 30XAV range of air-cooled chillers includes 500-800 kilowatts (kW) options, with 950-1200 kW to be released later in 2014.
