Carrier has launched its water-cooled, variable-speed, screw chiller line, the AquaEdge 23XRV series, with Greenspeed intelligence, in the UK.
The tri-rotor screw-compressor chiller complements and is claimed to enhance the existing 30XWV AquaForce range of twin-screw compressor units.
Carrier say the 23XRV range, formerly known as the ‘Evergreen’ chiller, has been improved and extended for its UK launch.
Carrier AquaEdge 23XRV is also believed to be the world’s first fully integrated, variable-speed, water-cooled screw chiller range, and it incorporates significant breakthroughs in water-cooled technology, according to the company.
The AquaEdge 23XRV uses non-ozone depleting HFC-134a refrigerant and patented tri-rotor compression technology.
“The AquaEdge 23XRV range adds a new level of flexibility for building owners and makes it much more interesting for possible UK applications,” stated Carrier’s UK MD Richard Jones, who has been keen to introduce new technologies and new Carrier models into the UK in 2014. “These new models can provide an ideal solution for new, water-cooled chiller systems.”
The AquaEdge 23XRV can achieve Part L PSEER’s (Plant Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratios) in excess of 10. With Integrated Part Load Values (IPLV), as low as 0.299 kW/Ton, the 23XRV exceeds the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) 90.1 efficiency standards by as much as 44 percent.
