Klima-Therm and Cool-Therm, the developers of the award-winning Turbomiser chiller, have clarified their position relating to an HFO1234ze version of their product using Danfoss Turbocor oil-free, magnetic bearing centrifugal compressors.
A spokesman said: “We believe that HFO refrigerants show great promise for the future and could meet the pressing need for an in-kind, low GWP alternative to HFC refrigerants. However, following discussions with Geoclima S.r.l. and Danfoss Turbocor, we accept that further development work and testing are required before these products can be introduced to the market.”
“We will continue our research and development activities with these new refrigerants, and plan to offer an HFO-based Turbomiser chiller to the market when it is fully qualified through our supply chain.”
