CHINA: Danfoss has broken ground on a new application development centre (ADC) for its cooling business in Haiyan, China.
The new centre will join three other existing global Danfoss Cooling ADCs in Denmark, India and the USA. It will enable clients to test new solutions and improve performance on applications in a live environment.
Situated adjacent to the company’s existing Turbocor compressor and heat exchanger plant, the 5,600m² ADC will include four side-by-side psychrometric testing facilities. This includes one for VRF systems and one for air-cooled chillers, as well as test loops for water cooled chillers. It will enable testing of air conditioners up to 175kW (50TR) and chillers up to 2,800kW (800TR).
According to Danfoss, the test facilities will meet all recognised testing standards. It will also have the ability to test applications charged with flammable refrigerants.
