Record breaker

The Chillventa exhibition in Nuremberg 13 -16 October will see suppliers demonstrating the latest in refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pumps. We present some of the highlights

Soon, the world’s largest international trade fair for refrigeration, air-conditioning, ventilation and heat pumps, with nearly 1,000 exhibitors, will be starting. The event, in Nuremberg, Germany starts on 13 October with Chillventa Congressing, the know-how highlight. On 14 October, the trade fair will then open its gates for three days.

In addition to top innovations in the halls, there will also be plenty of exciting special presentations, as in previous years.

And this year’s also is heading for a record attendance according to the organisers, thanks to more exhibitors taking more space.

Alexander Stein, exhibitions director at exhibition organisers NumbergMesse, said: “The display space used in 2012 is already virtually booked up.

Besides the space, the number of exhibitors will increase strongly once again. If everything continues to develop this way we can expect 950 exhibitors.”

Special presentation: Energy-efficient data centres

Growing volumes of data, increased demand for energy, volatile energy sources and the resultant rise in energy costs, plus planning uncertainties, are presenting major challenges for the operators of data centres worldwide. The special presentation Energy-efficient data centres – sustainable solutions for air-conditioning will be taking place in a specially designated area in hall 7, with a focus on sustainable solutions.

Special presentation: Heat pumps in commercial and industrial use

The special presentation on heat pumps focuses on the hybrid generation of heat and cold as a future energy use for commercial and industrial applications. The possibilities and solutions for saving energy through the use of heat pumps will be presented in a special area. The focus is on presenting the advantages of heat pumps in comparison with other methods of heat generation, using the hot and cold side at the same time. This special presentation will be shown in hall 7 within the Heat Pump Area.

Energy inspection of air-conditioning and room ventilation systems

In practice, the energy inspection of air-conditioning and room ventilation systems according to Art.12 EnEV [Energy Saving Ordinance] is barely known, at least in terms of its practical implementation.

The revision of EnEV will make the inspection a general obligation, in combination with DIN SPEC 15240, which is now also in effect. The transitional periods for existing systems have already expired or are about to expire. Within a special area, a training line will be available where visitors can learn about the practical skills that are necessary for the inspection. Temperatures, volume flows, room air qualities and power take-ups will be measured and the mechanical energy state of the system will be evaluated on an actual system.

RDM to unveil industry first among broadside of innovations at Chillventa 2014

Resource Data Management is launching a raft of cutting edge new products at this year’s Chillventa, and introducing a number of important developments to existing products. 

The company is unveiling no fewer than 20 new products this year, including an industry first with on-board fibre-optic connectivity.

Among RDM’s star products to be revealed at Chillventa are:

Touch XL

The newest member of RDM’s pioneering Touch screen family, the slimline Touch XL incorporates a large HD 10in touch-screen interface, audio sounder and USB port, CAN Bus, POE Ethernet and fibre with flexible installation options for wall- or panel-mounting.

The multi-function device can act as a remote display, orbit Data Manager repeater console or stand-alone controller, and has a customisable graphic display for easy access to data and settings from an RDM Intuitive controller.

As an orbit console connected to a dmTouch LAN, it can act as an additional user interface and alarm console, with the same menus and screens, making it easy and quick to use for operators.

TDB Editor 2

The smart new TDB Editor 2 represents a major advance with improved design and lay-out, making it easier to access key features – reducing programming time.

Multiple TDB programs can be opened in a single TDB Editor session, streamlining program management. Users can easily copy elements of a TDB strategy from one TDB program to another, further reducing development time.

Other important developments include selectable Tool Boxes to suit the needs of the engineer, allowing users to create programs more quickly; My Tool Box, which allows programmers to produce a customisable list of blocks; and Top Tool Box, which automatically populates a tool box with the blocks used most by the programmer. Built-in user documentation is now available via the Help menu.

Fibre-optic communications

In an industry first, RDM’s Data Manager will be equipped with fibre-optic communications, enabling a connection from either a Mercury Switch or the new touchXL. This will allow data to be transmitted over extended distances of up to 2km. This represents a huge leap forward when compared with CAT5 IP networks, which transmit up to 100m before requiring a network switch or repeater to extend by a further 100m, and so on.

With its greater bandwidth, fibre can transmit much more data than CAT5 patch cable. As the amount of data used to control buildings and industrial process increases over time, the ability to move large amounts of information across distances very quickly and efficiently will become increasingly important.

Kwheb energy dashboard

RDM’s new Kwheb energy dashboard gives end users unprecedented information on, and control over energy usage at individual store, national estate or global level.

The internet-based system draws together data from all energy-using equipment on a network, and presents it in clear graphical form, enabling users to get an immediate at-a-glance view of current energy usage as well as historical trends.

Kwheb harnesses the ability of RDM products to configure and control energy-using plant, while reading a wide range of smart power meters and pulse counters. This gives users the ability progressively to optimise equipment, while seeing the resultant changes in energy burn in real time.

It can focus on any scale of resolution, from a single item of plant, a store, building or factory, up to a national or global estate made up of many thousands of locations.

Once base energy costs have been set, it displays the cost of energy used in a range of currencies, and enables historical comparisons to be made between energy consumption for the current period against the same period last year, last month or last week.

Data Manager Dynamic – real time graphing

Data Manager’s new dynamic real time graphing feature, which can be added to web pages and also viewed from the dmTouch HD touchscreen, displays the control value for a device on a dedicated mimic/animation and updates in “real-time”. For example, a control value selected could be the control temperature from a case controller or the suction pressure from a pack controller.

Data can refresh as quickly as 15 second intervals, with the graphical read-out time-stamped, and with an option for high and low alarm limits to be shown on the animation. This enables the user to see at-a-glance how far they are from being over or under temperature, for example, or how close to high or low pressure alarms.

Smart controllers

A new range of smart, competitively priced controllers are designed for use by the OEM market. The compact refrigeration thermostats are aimed at applications such as convenience stores, supermarkets, restaurants and bars.

The controllers use pre-programmed software for mainstream refrigeration applications, such as chill - medium temp, chill - low temp, and frozen, making them easy to set-up. The built-in three digit display provides a clear and concise user interface.

Enclosure options suit various applications, including DIN mounting or panel mount.

An optional add-on IP communication interface enables networking to a Data Manager or 485 communications using Modbus protocol. Options include one probe or two probes with one, two or three outputs. End users can change the set-up and parameters using three push buttons on the front of the panel. The RDM Caesium programing key can be used to program multiple controllers with the same values on the production line.

New Mercury Mk3 controller

The new generation of Mercury controllers builds on the success of the Mercury Mk2, offering extended capabilities, power and ease of use. It comes with a choice of RS232 communication, allowing it to connect to an IP Futura module or mercury switch, or built-in IP communication, giving easier flexibility.

While the previous generation Mercury had six resistive temperature probe Inputs and five relay outputs, the Mercury Mk 3 offers flexible I/O options - 10 Inputs and 5 Outputs, made up of 6 resistive temperature probe inputs, 2 dedicated digital inputs, 1 x 0-10v and 1 x 4-20ma  analogue inputs, and 5 relay outputs.

With plug-in socket Inputs and Relay outputs, the Mercury Mk 3 uses the latest microprocessor technology for greater processing power and memory capacity.

Intuitive Mercury Wi-Fi Interface

The Intuitive Mercury currently has on-board communication options for IP, RS232, RS485 and Wireless Mesh. RDM has now introduced a Wi-Fi communications option to further enhances the already comprehensive on-board communication choices.

The Wi-Fi daughter card can be fitted as an option to an Intuitive Mercury controller, and allows connection to a standard Wi-Fi network. Internal or external antenna options are available to suit the application.

Use of Wi-Fi overcomes the need for a full site wired infrastructure, saving time and cost during installation and offering greater flexibility for control and monitoring solutions. It uses industry standard WPA2 wireless encryption for enhanced security.

It also enables the Integrate of the Intuitive Mercury into an existing Wi-Fi network for quick and easy installation.

Intuitive Wi-Fi Interface (PR0650 Platform)

RDM has also introduced a USB Wi-Fi adapter allowing the Intuitive to interact with a standard Wi-Fi network. The optional accessory, fitted to an Intuitive controller during ordering or can be retrofitted onsite, offers similar connectively, cost and convenience benefits highlighted above.


Bitzer to display new technological developments

Chillventa 2014 visitors can look forward to a whole host of innovations at Bitzer’s trade fair stand (Hall 4, Stand 310 and 408).

One of the many new products the compressor specialist will be showcasing in Nuremberg is the further optimised CRII capacity control. The company claims the system delivers virtually infinitely adjustable capacity control for the ECOLINE reciprocating compressors with four, six and – now for the first time – two cylinders.

Depending on the operating conditions and refrigerant, a special control algorithm allows compressors to be infinitely adjusted. With the CRII, Bitzer has achieved an exceptionally wide range of control between 10 per cent and 100 per cent for two-, four- and six-cylinder compressors.

The increased switching frequency, however, ensures smaller fluctuations in controlled value, temperature as well as pressure and, in combination with the expanded range of control, optimizes system efficiency.

Bitzer has also expanded its range of CO2 compressors. With the introduction of the 4PTC-6K model for lower displacements and the 4DTC-25K and 4CTC-30K models for higher displacements, the series for transcritical compressors now ranges from 4.3 to 25.6 cubic meters of displacement per hour at 50 Hz.

Chillventa trade fair visitors can look forward to an expanded product range and a new CO2 series at the Bitzer stand.

For the first time, Bitzer is presenting a new open-drive screw compressor in the OS series to the public. The model is based on the tried-and-tested construction of the OS series and, for now, is designed for use with NH3 (ammonia) in medium and low temperature applications.

Bitzer therefore offers the refrigeration and air conditioning industry a compressor solution tailored to meet the requirements of industrial applications. Further models for industrial applications are already in development.

The CSVH3 series is a new development in the field of speed-regulated compact screw compressors. Bitzer has added two significantly more powerful larger models to its existing CSVH series.

The CSVH37 compact screw compressor has a cooling capacity of 550 kW (+5/50 deg C) with a displacement of up to 960 m3/h. The larger CSVH38 possesses an impressive cooling capacity of 660 kW (+5/50 deg C) with a displacement of up to 1,156 m3/h.

Bitzer has developed a new housing size to achieve this level of performance.

The series is based on the proven engineering and electronics of the CSVH2 series and has a very wide range of applications, from air cooled liquid chillers to heat pumps.

The CSVW2 is also a compact screw compressor, specially designed for liquid chillers with a low condensing temperature. Its engineering is based on the tried-and-tested CSVH2 compact screw compressor and combines proven strengths with new capabilities at low load conditions. In order to achieve a high coefficient of performance (COP) for this type of application, and thus a good ESEER, Bitzer has integrated a permanent magnet motor.

The innovative drive technology is beneficial particularly in liquid chillers with a water cooled condenser.

The internal volume ratio (Vi) of the compressor was also adjusted to allow the CSVW2 series to achieve much better efficiency in the lower speed and load range than the CSVH series.


Emerson to showcase multi-solution product range

At Chillventa 2014 Emerson Climate Technologies will present its different product brands Copeland, Alco Controls and Dixell as well as product brands from Emerson Industrial Automation reflecting the current market trends and challenges.

The company will be displaying solutions for R744, R290 and low GWP refrigerants combining Copeland, Alco and Dixell products, with modulation technology as well as the CoreSense intelligent electronics technology for semi-hermetic and scroll compressors.

Secop offers cooling with a conscience at the Chillventa

Secop will be introducing a wide range environmentally friendly compressors.

This is the first time that Secop has exhibited at Chillventa. “In that sense it also marks the celebration of the first four years of Secop after the fruitful transition from the Danfoss Group”, said Mr Pieter Boink, Secop head of marketing and business development.

Secop will have eight different compressors on exhibition at Chillventa 2014 – each of them displaying the know-how within light commercial, mobile and telecom and household refrigeration.

This will include  four major additions to the light commercial market.

The intelligent SLV15CNK.3 and SLV15CNK.2 compressors - both offer up to 40 per cent extra efficiency through the use of variable speed and allow for a variety of functionalities (i.e. fan control, rail heating etc.).

Moreover, there are the completely new energy-optimized R290 propane compressors DLE5.7CN and NLE11CNL – auspicious successors of the well-known TL and NL platforms. The company claims the new types are ideal solutions for commercial applications such as: bottle coolers, display cabinets, commercial freezers and ice-cream cabinets.

Those with mobile and telecom cooling interests will have three relevant compressors on display. There’s the BD1.4F-VSD, which is the smallest and lightest compressor on the market for DC compressor applications, along with the BD2000GH, which already is considered as “best in class” rotary compressor for cooling cabinets and shelters in mobile telecommunication networks.

According to Secop, the BD220CL is a unique compressor that allows customers to meet HACCP guidelines and maintain the cold chain ‘last mile’.

Finally, Secop will showcase their two new ultra-compact household compressors – the DELTA Series and the XV8.0KX.

Whether you choose the cost efficient fixed speed Delta or the intelligent variable speed driven XV, you are guaranteed unmatched flexibility and efficiency. DELTA and XV compressors are also the ideal choice for energy-efficient wine coolers and minibars.

Secop will be at booth 411 in Hall 4A at the Chillventa fair.

Henry Technologies celebrates centenary at Chillventa

Founded in 1914 in Chicago, Illinois, Henry Technologies is set to celebrate its’ centenary in Germany.

The company has come a long way since its foundation by Guy Henry, who started out initially making gas lanterns and accessory gauges for Model “T” Ford cars.  The business has evolved into a leading manufacturer of component parts for the commercial refrigeration and air conditioning industry.

Under the ownership of Hendricks Holdings since 2005, today Henry Technologies is a multi-national organisation with locations in the US, Canada, Scotland, Australia, China and Singapore.

Henry Technologies will be exhibiting at Chillventa from 14-16 October.  

As part of the celebrations, Henry is inviting customers to sign their anniversary message board and there will also be giveaways, some with a Scottish theme.


EPEE to host booth and joint symposium at Chillventa

The European Partnership for Energy and the Environment (EPEE) will be located in Hall 1/1-223  and will be screening informative videos about EPEE’s main issues and the use of EPEE’s products in everyday life. Drinks and snacks will be available at the booth.

On 13 October from 1pm to 5pm EPEE and ASERCOM will organise a joint symposium, focusing on the importance of enforcing the new developments concerning Ecodesign, energy labelling, and the new EU F-gas Regulation.

EPEE says participants at the symposium will gain a better understanding of the new F-Gas and Ecodesign rules and learn how companies can make significant contributions to reduce overall energy consumption in Europe. There will be speakers from the EU Institutions, industry, as well as academics.

Finally, EPEE is planning a press briefing to take place at the EPEE booth during Chillventa. The exact timing will be announced nearer the time of the event.

EPEE Director General Andrea Voigt says: “Chillventa is always a highlight on the HVACR calendar, and EPEE is delighted to once again have a significant presence and be organising what promises to be a highly informative symposium with our partners at ASERCOM.”


At Stand 7-422, Hall 7 Chillventa will be displaying an extensive range of high performance cooling products and controls solutions on stand 7-422, Hall 7, with several new products in the line-up.

·         The award-winning SmartCool dedicated chilled water precision air conditioning system delivers up to 30 per cent more cooling per kW/m2 than its nearest rival and comes in a wide range of configurations

·         Offering twice as much free-cooling as a centrifugal-based chiller the TurboChill & TurboChill FreeCool chiller is now available with low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant R1234ze which has been rated by the International Panel for Climate Change with a 100-year GWP below 1, lower than CO2

·         The AireFlow fresh air adiabatic air handling unit (AHU)offers huge free-cooling potential. Because the AireFlow is an indirect system, this eliminates the risk of contaminated air entering the data centre and removes the need for 100 per cent DX back-up cooling

Airedale controls experts also will be demonstrating our latest ACIS Building Management System (BMS) and Building Energy Management System (BEMS) controls software which helps users optimise their cooling plant and provides 24/7 remote monitoring for maximum system efficiency and resilience.



DuPont Fluorochemicals will be showcasing its new low GWP refrigerants, working fluids and foam expansion agents – energy-efficient and lower environmental impact technologies for the future.

On stand 4-206, Hall 4, DuPont will present Opteon XP40, a new member of its Opteon family of low-GWP refrigerants. It has a GWP of 1397, which are 65 per cent lower than R-404A/R-507A, which it says can replace in commercial and industrial medium- and low-temperature refrigeration systems.

A further highlight at the trade fair is non-flammable working fluids with reduced GWP. DuPont state these are suitable for use in high temperature heat pumps and organic Rankine cycles, as they boost energy efficiency at relatively high temperatures.

Another new product is Formacel 1100, a chlorine-free, high efficiency foam expansion agent for producing PU rigid foam insulation with zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and a GWP that is 99 per cent lower than that of HFCs normally used today.

DuPont Opteon XP40 is the company’s new low GWP alternative to R-404A/R-507A for commercial and industrial refrigeration systems.

These new products are based on hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) technology and, compared to previously used substances, offer benefits in energy efficiency and have a significantly reduced Global Warming Potential (GWP), according to DuPont.

Opteon XP40 (R-449A) is a non-flammable refrigerant blend (ASHRAE Class 1) with similar thermodynamic properties to R-404A/ R-507A widely used today in medium- and low-temperature commercial and industrial direct expansion refrigeration systems. XP40 is suitable for use in both new systems and for cost-effective and simple retrofitting of existing systems.

Having an approximately 65 per cent lower GWP than R-404A/R-507A, XP40 complies with the requirements of the new European F-Gas Regulation No. 517/2014 which comes into force from 1 January 2015.

DuPont claims that Opteon XP40 has no ozone depletion potential and better energy efficiency than R-404A/R-507A.

Furthermore, it can contribute in reducing overall greenhouse gas emissions arising from leaks and energy consumption by refrigeration systems in supermarkets, cold stores and in industrial process cooling.

Successful pilot projects have already demonstrated the benefits of Opteon XP40 in a practical setting and these projects will be presented at the trade fair.

The growing Opteon family of low GWP refrigerants also includes Opteon XP10 for hybrid cascades and Opteon XP44 for transport refrigeration.

DuPont is also exhibiting new, developmental non-flammable working fluids with reduced GWP. These include DR-65 (GWP < 850) for high temperature lift applications of up to 65 deg C, DR-14A (GWP approx. 375) for heating at temperatures of up to 100 deg C and DR-2 (GWP of less than 10) for high efficiency, high temperature heat pumps for temperatures up to 160 deg C.

DuPont experts will also present various technical papers about these new products during the Specialist Forums: www.chillventa.de/en/supportingprogramme/specialist-forums.

The Güntner Group will present at our booth the entire spectrum of technologies being offered by Güntner Group in the field of heat exchangers.

Multi-sectional unit by thermowave

As part of their plate heat exchanger portfolio, the company thermowave will present a multi-sectional unit with sections for desuperheating, condensation and heat recovery. The sections desuperheating/condensation and heat recovery are connected to separate water curcuits in order to ensure a maximum of operational reliability and efficient use of the waste heat.

JAEGGI: Hybrid unit with HydroPad

The company JAEGGI will show their powerful hybrid drycoolers with HydroPad. These units called Hybrid Blue are an advanced dry cooler variant. When the outdoor temperature is high, the ambient air can also be pre-cooled to ensure low coolant outlet temperatures. This adiabatic pre-cooling is achieved via humidification pads, so-called HydroPads, which are situated in an angular arrangement in front of the dry cooler coil.

 Sustainable innovations by Güntner

The Güntner brand in particular focuses on the future. A clear 9 of the 10 units exhibited at the Chillventa are further developed series offering additional benefits to the customers with regard to current regulations. In order to achieve this, Güntner has been overhauling and improving their most popular condenser and aircooler series to meet future requirements. For example, the pipe geometries were optimized to require the least amount of refrigerant. The model series also offer maximum variability. With the resulting diversity, the customers will always be able to find the solution that exactly meets their needs.

And the Controls division has something innovative to offer, too: With the new Controls App, plant systems may be monitored and controlled from everywhere; even data may be collected while on the move.
