Chiller joins Carrier PUREtec line-up


18 November 2019
Carrier’s AquaForce Vision variable-speed air cooled screw chiller is now available with low GWP HFO R1234ze refrigerant.

The unit is said to balance environmental responsibility with performance and covers cooling capacities from 350- 800kW, with a SEER rating of up to 5.6.
“The AquaForce Vision chiller with PUREtec refrigerant is spearheading next generation HVAC refrigerant solutions,” said Quentin Garcia San Mateo, product manager, Carrier. “The range embodies not only Carrier’s strong commitment to environmental responsibility, but also its engineering capabilities to provide cutting-edge technologies.”

Four years after the first installation of a water-cooled screw chiller based on HFO refrigerant in Europe, Carrier’s AquaForce units with PUREtec have been installed in more than 300 projects throughout the region, in multiple applications such as industrial, data centres, district heating, and healthcare.

The range using PUREtec refrigerant has grown to incorporate high temperature heat pumps, centrifugal chillers, and now the AquaForce Vision 30KAVP-ZE premium variable-speed air-cooled screw chiller. With a GWP of less than one, Carrier says the 30KAVP-ZE range offers a long-term refrigerant solution, in advance of the European F-Gas regulation HFC phase-down, and features technologies including:

  • Twin screw compressor equipped with permanent magnet motor technology (30KAVP-ZE version)
  • EC variable-speed fans
  • Smart energy monitoring function
  • Smart refrigerant leak detection
  • Heat recovery and partial heat recovery options.

A very low brine function will be available later this year to address specific industrial process applications.

In France, the 30KAVP-ZE range may be eligible for financial incentives of up to 425,000 euros, depending on specifications.
