TurboChill on ETL


06 August 2019
Air conditioning manufacturer Airedale International's TurboChill Spray Evaporator range of chillers, with R1234ze refrigerant, has been included on the Energy Technology List (ETL).

The ETL (or Energy Technology Product List, ETPL) is a government-managed list of energy-efficient plant and machinery. Its purpose is to encourage businesses to choose energy efficient products when making capital purchases so as to help overall environmental goals. An added incentive is that any capital purchases from the list qualify for the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) tax scheme and can therefore be fully offset against any taxable profit for the same year.
The TurboChill Spray Evaporator incorporates the latest centrifugal TurboCor compressor technology, which offers 30-100% variable speed control for tighter setpoint management and substantial energy savings at part load. The implementation of spray flooded type evaporator technology means that the range reduces refrigerant evaporator charge by up to 70% and overall unit charge by up to 50%, whilst maintaining a level of efficiency close to a traditionally flooded system of the same capacity.
Adam Yarrington, product development director at Airedale International, said: “We are delighted that the TurboChill Spray Evaporator range increases our portfolio of chillers available on the ETL. It is a significant achievement for manufacturers to achieve such levels of energy efficiency and we will continue to focus our efforts on developing energy efficient products.
“Airedale is committed to developing products that are less damaging to our planet and more energy efficient for our customers. We invest heavily in research and development to meet this objective and are delighted our customers can reap both energy and cost saving benefits.”
The ETL is managed on behalf of Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy by the Carbon Trust.
