GERMANY: Güntner has redesigned and extended its V-shape Vario series of condensers, fluid coolers and gas coolers, bringing greater capacity and lower energy use.
The series offers up to 2,600kW in dry operation. A 20% increase in capacity has been achieved by adding fan sections (up to 2×12). The series is also said to be customisable, with a wide range of coils, casing types and other accessories. Güntner says that the large variety of fans and speeds makes the new V-shape Vario suitable for every sound and power requirement.
The addition of Güntner’s GMM controller and hydroBLU technology can boost capacity even further. The hydroBLU system has been completely redeveloped with a new pad thickness that increases the efficiency of adiabatic pre-cooling. The wetting system is also said to have been revised, with all components easier to reach, making installation and maintenance easier.
The new series includes the largest and highest-capacity V-shape unit in Güntner’s portfolio, developed with lorry dimensions in mind. It utilises the bed of a maximum-size curtainsider lorry down to the last centimetre, opening up new possibilities for maximum capacity in a single Güntner unit. This not only cuts down transportation and operational costs but also reduces carbon emissions. The units are designed for easy loading and unloading with both forklift and crane.
The V-shape Vario series is available for all common refrigerants, including natural refrigerants such as ammonia, propane and carbon dioxide.
“The V-shape VARIO series has been a mainstay of the market since 2010,” said Herbert Schupfer, head of future solutions at Güntner. “To meet future demands, we decided to rethink the development of the product from the ground up. The new series optimises the cost-benefit ratio and has sustainability at its heart.”
