Carrier chiller for the Indian market

INDIA: Carrier India has developed an air-cooled modular scroll chiller manufactured at its plant in Gurugram and designed specifically for the Indian climate.

The Made in India 30 RB chiller is described as being “meticulously crafted” for the “dynamic needs” of the Indian market, “establishing new benchmarks in cooling efficiency and reliability”.

Carrier India has been running its manufacturing facility in Gurugram, Haryana, India, for more than 35 years, focusing on commercial equipment including chillers, cassettes, ductables and fan coil units. 

Tailored specifically for different weather conditions in India, the 30 RB chiller has the capability to combine up to 16 units in one module, promising uninterrupted performance across a wide temperature range from 10°C to 48°C. 

To further enhance reliability, the chiller is equipped with shell and tube heat exchangers, ensuring seamless operation even with poor water quality.

Other components include an electronic expansion valve and V-shaped condenser combined with robust protection mechanisms, including water flow switch and anti-freezing programme. 

Under India’s new Chiller Star labelling programme, these chillers are anticipated to fall under the 3- and 4-star categories, positioning them as top-of-the-line chillers in the modular scroll chiller segment.

“The localisation of our offering, Made in India, Made for India, instills confidence in our customers,” insisted Dhiraj Wadhwa, Carrier’s director of applied sales and overseas markets. “Adapting our products to meet local needs has garnered a positive reception, solidifying Carrier as a reliable and trustworthy choice.”
