Fläkt Woods has added a new chiller as part of its Climaflakt KCCJ range with a claimed SEER of 5.65
The new air-cooled chiller is available in 10 models with outputs from 200kW to 650kW, and is aimed at commercial, industrial and residential applications.
To meet the new EU Regulations and F-Gas Directive, the Climaflakt KCCJ incorporates new features including a multi-scroll compressor for enhanced part-load efficiencies, an increased heat exchanger surface to reduce compressor consumption, and a non-ozone depleting refrigerant.
In addition, all Climaflakt KCCJ units are equipped with winglet aerofoil fans, which have improved aerodynamic efficiencies to reduce energy consumption by up to 10 per cent and limit noise levels by 6dB.
Furthermore, all Climaflakt KCCJ units are supplied with electronic condensation control as standard.
This function is said to automatically reduce the unit’s fan speed when the heating load falls, ensuring that noise levels are kept to a minimum.
The Climaflakt KCCJ units are also designed to be connected in cascade for up to seven units - providing increased flexibility in system design, as well as improved reliability and efficiencies.
The company claim that a key development of the new Climaflakt units is the integration of advanced microprocessor controls that allow the compressors to be switched on and off in conjunction with cooling demand.
This development is said to minimises the amount of compressor start-ups to help prolong the unit’s service life, while the incorporation of electronic expansion valves also encourages low discharge temperatures and prevents liquid returning to the compressors.
