Trane adds chillers up to 3.6MW

BELGIUM: Trane has added XStream RTHF XSE water-cooled screw chillers in high capacities of 3.0 to 3.6MW. 

RTHF XSE models feature variable Vi (Volume index) technology, which is said to increase the part load SEER by 10% compared to models with fixed Vi, reaching up to 10.1 SEER and up to 10.24 integrated part load value (IPLV). This is said to make RTHF XSE the most efficient chiller in the Trane XStream portfolio.

“Trane is the only manufacturer on the market today offering high capacity screw chillers with capacities up to 3.6MW,” boasts Trane Europe portfolio manager Erik van Oossanen.

These R134a chillers also offer dual circuits with reduced refrigerant content and dual power supply.
