Johnson Controls' new YORK YLAA scroll chiller available with low GWP R454B refrigerant from 190 to 530 kW cooling capacity will be on sale in Europe from early next year.
Christian Rudio, director of portfolio management Europe at Johnson Controls, said: “Johnson Controls continues to take a leadership role in the transition to the next generation of GWP refrigerants. It is our aim to help the industry to choose the best low-GWP refrigerant for its equipment, so it can meet the European Union F-Gas Regulations. R-454B is the lowest GWP replacement for R410A and provides similar properties and operating performance without major modifications to equipment design.”
The YLAA air cooled chiller is said to deliver outstanding efficiency for all air conditioning applications. They are designed to be lightweight and compact for simple installation, while brazed evaporators and microchannel condensers promise more efficient heat transfer and lower life-cycle costs.
