USA: Carrier has slimmed down its water-cooled AquaSnap 30MP chiller to enable faster, less expensive installations in high-rise applications.
Meeting ASHRAE 90.1 efficiency requirements, certain model sizes also accommodate the 15hp per circuit regulation common in many large cities, eliminating the need for costly 24/7 support.
Carrier describes the 30MP as its answer to the challenge of providing climate control in tough-to-reach spaces. It is said to be trim enough to fit through a standard size door or elevator while boasting a modular design that can be easily connected to provide greater capacity.
Additionally, Carrier says the 30MP can be piped together in-line, which can also help reduce the first cost of any installation in new and retrofit applications while providing up to 560 tons of cooling.
“This package has always been an ideal solution for retrofit applications, given its small size and portability. Now with its ability to meet ASHRAE 90.1 efficiency requirements and with certain model sizes 15hp per circuit regulations, it can be a viable solution for tall buildings in even the largest U.S. cities,” said Chris Opie, director, North America commercial marketing.
Additional 30MP features and options to enhance HVAC system performance include a digital compressor, separate multi-unit controller, single input power to electrical distribution panel and a remote air-cooled option.
