Trane has launched the RTXC, its first European air-to-water heat pump with proprietary screw compressor technology.
The technology is said to enable the RTXC to continuously control its capacity, which significantly enhances the water temperature stability. The performance is managed by the Trane Tracer UC800 adaptive controller, which can keep the unit running in the most challenging conditions.
Trane claims up to 20 per cent better efficiency than competitive units, and coefficient of performance (COP) level of 3.5, with the RTXC able to deliver 55°Cof heating at an ambient temperature as low as -10°C.
Erik van Oossanen, portfolio manager at Trane Europe, said: "We keep increasing the number of options and technologies for our customers that create opportunities to increase the efficiency of their buildings. Air-to-water heat pumps move energy from the ambient air into the building, delivering renewable energy, and helping reduce the energy intensity of buildings tremendously. By launching the RTXC air-to-water heat pump based on our renowned screw compressor, we’re now taking another step forward in that direction.''
The RTXC is available with refrigerants R134a and R513A.
