Trane has launched five new chillers with capacities ranging from 20 kW to 14 000 kW aimed at the healthcare, education, commercial buildings process cooling and residential markets in Europe. Its centrifugal version uses the HFO 1233zd, which has a GWP of just 4.5
Chiller specialist Trane has unveiled a clutch of new models, including a new centrifugal chiller that uses the new HFO molecule specifically aimed at centrifugal systems.
The new systems are: Trane RTHDevo (water cooled chillers from 500 kW-1500 kW); Sintesis (air cooled chillers from 300 kW-1500 kW); Stealth (quietest air-cooled chiller from 500 kW-1050 kW); Series E CenTraVac (next generation CenTraVac from 2600 kW-14,000 kW); and Conquest (air cooled scroll heat pumps and chillers from 20 kW-165 kW).
Trane RTHDevo - Water Cooled Liquid Chillers with Helical-Rotary Compressors
The new RTHDevo is an integrated system that combines Trane water-cooled screw chillers with advanced Tracer UC800 controller technologies, that provide the intelligence behind the chiller to keep it online and connected.
The system is offered in cooling capacities from 500 kW-1500kW and runs on R134a.
Trane Sintesis - Air-cooled liquid chillers with helical-rotary compressor in 300 kW to 1500 kW
The Trane Sintesis air-cooled chiller is designed to provide cooling all year round, and is aimed at hotels, commercial buildings, schools and healthcare facilities. It uses R134a.
With 11 efficiency/acoustic combinations, Sintesis also features, improved efficiency/footprint ratio and reliability: micro-channel condenser coil, Trane- patented flooded evaporator, new EC fans and fan diffusers.
Trane Series E CenTraVac - Water Cooled Centrifugal Chiller with capacities from 2600 kW to 14 000 kW
The Series E CenTraVac chiller is a large-capacity chiller for applications like comfort cooling of large commercial buildings including district cooling. The E CenTraVac uses HFO 1233zd specifically, which has a GWP of just 4.5.
It is claimed to be up to 1.0 per cent more energy efficient than the next best chiller available in this tonnage, delivering industry-leading efficiencies at both part-load and full-load capacity.
The Trane Series E is a large-capacity chiller that builds upon direct-drive, multi-stage, semi-hermetic, low-pressure design technology.
Trane Conquest - Air-cooled scroll heat pumps and chillers offering capacities from 20 kW to 165 kW
Trane Conquest small-capacity chillers are claimed to be among the quietest systems, even in the most noise-sensitive applications, and optimize energy consumption within varying building or application loads and capacity modulations. It runs on R410A
Available in a cooling-only and in a reversible heat pump version, the units offer increased versatility. Unit monitoring is delivered in 15 languages through the new Trane light commercial controller with LCD display. Optional 7” color touchscreen offers further advanced control capabilities and intuitive navigation with data trending, clear alarm log and remote monitoring.
Trane Stealth air-cooled chiller offers capacities from 500 kW to 1050 kW
At the core of the Stealth chiller’s performance is AdaptiSpeed technology – the integration of a direct-drive, specific-speed screw compressor, permanent-magnet motors and Trane Adaptive Frequency Drive. The chiller’s compressor design is said to deliver peak efficiency under all operating conditions, in full or part load and it uses R134a as its refrigerant.
The Tracer UC800 provides the intelligence behind the Stealth chiller and features adaptive control algorithms that respond to a variety of conditions to maintain efficient chiller plant operation.
