Carrier’s New Water Cooled Chillers
Carrier’s Aquaforce chiller range had been extended with the introduction of the 30XW, a new generation of water cooled liquid chillers, comprising 27 models from 400kW-1800kW (115 tonnes to 515 tonnes).
The new Aquaforce chiller was unveiled to an international audience at Carrier’s plant in Montluel in France where, alongside the US and China, the new range will be manufactured. The introduction of the water cooled model follows the launch of ht Aquaforce air cooled chiller range in 2006.
With the new water cooled range, Carrier has created a new category of energy efficient chillers operating on R134a which adapt to a wide variety of applications and satisfy the needs of each market sector – air conditioning, heating and industrial refrigeration.
To meet the requirements of various water cooled system applications the Aquaforce chillers function under an expanded range of water temperatures. Where ground source water is available as low as 8◦C, the Aquaforce 30XW chiller can control and manage the entering condenser water temperature to ensure satisfactory operation.
The chiller is also capable of offering leaving condenser water temperatures as high as 63◦C. This makes the 30KW compatible with a wide range of heat rejection configurations including ground source systems, cooling towers and dry coolers.
