Variable-speed, water-cooled screw chiller
UK: Carrier has launched its water-cooled, variable-speed, screw chiller line, the AquaEdge 23XRV series, with Greenspeed intelligence, in the UK.
This tri-rotor screw-compressor chiller is said to complement the existing 30XWV AquaForce range of twin-screw compressor units, the two technologies giving clients more choice. The 23XRV range, formerly known as the Evergreen chiller, has won many awards around the world in the last few years and has been improved and extended for its UK launch.
The AquaEdge 23XRV is believed to be the world’s first fully integrated, variable-speed, water-cooled screw chiller range, and it incorporates significant breakthroughs in water-cooled technology to achieve exceptional performance and reliability.
“The AquaEdge 23XRV range adds a new level of flexibility for building owners and makes it much more interesting for possible UK applications,” stated Carrier’s UK md Richard Jones. “These new models can provide an ideal solution for new, water-cooled chiller systems,” he added.
The AquaEdge 23XRV can achieve Part L PSEER’s (Plant Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratios) in excess of 10. With Integrated Part Load Values (IPLV), as low as 0.299 kW/ton, the 23XRV exceeds the ASHRAE 90.1 efficiency standards by as much as 44%.
