Trane has launched three new compact chillers and heat pumps below 400kW for heating and cooling small commercial buildings, industrial facilities and industrial processes.
Trane says the City products are 38% more efficient at part load than the 2021 Ecodesign requirements, future-proofing building owners’ investments. They are designed with R1234ze refrigerant and use renewable energy, geothermal sourced water and waste water to deliver heating capacity up to 80 degrees Celsius.
The three new products are:
- Trane City Comfort: chiller for office buildings, hospitality, district cooling and heating and data centres, and can be used in small industrial processes such as food and beverage and small agricultural production such as wineries.
- Trane City Process: process chiller variant that provides highly efficient process cooling for food and beverage, warehouses, cold storage and ice rinks, and can freeze down to -12 degrees.
- Trane City Booster: water to water heat pump delivers hot water at temperatures of between 50 and 80 degrees Celsius designed for applications like high temperature heating, sanitary hot water supplies, district heating and heat recovery cascades. It sources energy from waste water or geothermal systems at 5 to 30 degrees Celsius.
Jose La Loggia, vice president and general manager of Trane in Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “Trane City products meet a diverse set of customer needs for compact, efficient comfort and process cooling and heating needs. The combination of Trane technology, the use of renewable energy and waste water sources, and near zero GWP refrigerant deliver unmatched operating performance and are a sustainable investment for building owners.”
