EVAPCO has developed the eco-LSWE closed circuit coolers with an ellipti-fin coil and CrossCool™ internally enhanced tubes to increase the heat transfer of the coil, in turn improving the unit’s cooling capacity. The units range in capacity from 340 to 16,987 MBH.
WaterFurnace International introduced the Versatec Variable Speed Series in 3- to 6-ton capacities. This commercial variable capacity water source and geothermal heat pump line is available in both horizontal and vertical configurations.
Danfoss has launched new models for its Turbocor® TG series for low global warming potential refrigerants. The compressors enable chiller manufacturers to build climate friendly and sustainable solutions that support refrigerant regulations for reducing the direct and indirect CO2 emissions such as the European F-Gas Regulation and the US Environmental Protection Agency’s SNAP regulations.
Schaffner EMC introduces the ECOsine® Active 3420, a harmonic filter which provides harmonic compensation in real-time for industrial and commercial environments. With a capacity of 30 to 300A, operating at 200-480VAC (+/- 10%), the connection-ready 3420 (3-wire) cabinet models include forced air cooling and internal liquid cooling (200-300A), for the power electronics.
Danfoss has introduced the new Danfoss Turbocor® TT700 compressor — expanding to a larger capacity its existing range of Turbocor® TT series compressors. Designed for water-cooled chiller applications, the new TT700 compressors are oil-free, variable-speed, magnetic bearing centrifugal compressors that provide full- and part-load energy efficiency. The company claims the compressors also feature a small footprint, are light weight, and offer low vibration, very low sound, intelligent controls, and soft starting characteristics.
EVAPCO, Inc. launched the eco-LSWE and eco-LRWB series of closed circuit coolers. The coolers feature EVAPCO’s Ellipti-fin™ spirally-finned coil and CROSSCOOL™ internal tube enhancement for energy and water efficiency.
Johnson Controls has expanded its YORK line of YLAA Air-Cooled Scroll Chillers up to 200 tons. The company says the extended capacity of the YLAA offers a more cost competitive solution to 200-ton opportunities without sacrificing size, quality, and efficiency.
Lochinvar is introducing an addition to its Power-Fin line with the Power-Fin High Efficiency Commercial Boiler. This product expansion of the original line, which launched in 1986 and just celebrated its 30th anniversary, now offers an input capacity from 2.5 to 5 million Btuh, more than doubling its previous capacity. The enhanced performance comes from a heat exchanger that features a double row of swept fins that delivers more than twice the output of the original model.
SPX Cooling Technologies, Inc. has introduced the Recold Vector™ Adiabatic Cooling System, for halocarbon refrigerant condensing or CO2 gas cooling applications in supermarket refrigeration systems. According to the company, the Recold Vector provides lower energy usage and a smaller footprint than an air-cooled condenser and up to 60% or more reduction in site water usage compared to an evaporative condenser. Designed as a once-through system, the Recold Vector Adiabatic Cooling System minimizes water treatment requirements.
Para Systems Inc. has released the Minuteman Entrust LCD Series of UPSs. The company says this new line of uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) offers complete power protection designed to protect valuable equipment.
The high-profile equipment involves an efficient, resilient trigeneration plant to provide heating, cooling, and power service. However, UConn’s most critical asset may be its forward-thinking, campus-wide energy strategy. Read more stories in June Issue 2017.
