Lennox emphasis on eco benefits
CHILLVENTA 2016 PREVIEW: At this year’s show Lennox EMEA will be promoting its Friga Bohn, HK Refrigeration and Lennox brands with an emphasis on EcoDesign compliance and low GWP refrigerant.
In the retail and cold storage sector Lennox will be showing the HK Refrigeration Eco2boost, a new CO2 transcritical booster rack for hypermarket applications.
To complete the natural refrigerant solution, CO2 unit coolers going from 0.1 to 38kW will be shown in the commercial refrigeration corner.
Two new products are the eComfort air cooled chiller and heat pump and the V-King V-shaped dry cooler for process cooling or air conditioning
The eComfort is said to be ErP ready and Ecodesign compliant, even exceeding all European energy efficiency 2021 requirements. Compact and with a low profile, the eComfort also offers low sound levels.
The V-King will be available for summer 2017 and will complete the current Neostar range of dry cooler. Its design offers customers a choice of sound levels, efficiency, footprint (thanks to in-line or parallel models), variable module lengths, and fans.
V-King will be available with adiabatic system, with a mesh, reducing the risk of damages of the coils and increasing performance during summer conditions.
