Carrier has added a new dimension to its AquaSnap® Chiller range by introducing the 30RBP with Greenspeed® intelligence, which enables higher efficiency and optimized performance. 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 new AquaSnap with Greenspeed intelligence features enhanced scroll compressors designed for better full-load efficiency at the operating point of an air-cooled chiller. In addition, the AquaSnap with Greenspeed intelligence uses high-efficiency variable-speed condenser fans, providing an ideal fan-operating sequence for optimal air flow across the condenser, which supports higher efficiency when running at part-load conditions. The 30RBP reaches a European Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (ESEER) of up to 4.3.
The AquaSnap with Greenspeed intelligence also uses new software designed to optimize usage of the compressors, fans and circuits. The new software constantly calculates the most efficient fan speed and water flow rate based on the load and ambient conditions, and controls them precisely to this pressure through continuous feedback and adjustment.
“The 30RBP with Greenspeed intelligence is a fantastic addition to the AquaSnap line,” said Didier Genois, director, engineering and marketing, HVAC Europe. “We’ve integrated several new technologies that allow the unit to run more intelligently and efficiently. In addition, the new unit is built in line with existing products, so service teams are already familiar with this platform.”
