Tecumseh has expanded its range of products using propane with the launch a new plug-and-play air-cooled water chiller for small to medium sized applications. The Infinee uses R290 refrigerant and has a full inverter control for low power consumption.
The Infinee is said to offer easy installation and comes fully equipped. The hydraulic module is supplied with isolating valves, strainer, pump and expansion vessels and the manufacturer says little refrigeration work is required because the unit is delivered with its refrigerant charge.
“For refrigeration applications, CO2 is complex and is aimed for large installations. Propane is more efficient, even more than R404A the current decaying HFC solution.”
To ensure safety when using propane, Tecumseh says it designed Infinee with an air-cooled approach for external locations, open panels for natural elimination, three isolated sections for refrigeration, hydraulic and electronic, and ducted relief valves for fire protection.
