To meet the demand for a higher efficiency yet compact water cooled chiller range, leading British manufacturer AIAC Air Conditioning South Africa a part of Airedale International group of companies, has launched the TurboChill™ Water Cooled range of chillers which outperforms rival products.

In addition to ESEER values of up to 8.86, the TurboChill™ Water Cooled also provides a 7% increase in EER, and up to 111% more cooling per square metre than its nearest competitors.

Providing up to 1576kW of cooling (based on 4 modules), The TurboChill™ Water Cooled is a high capacity, water-cooled, single circuit chiller. Optimised for use with 3 module variants(1.96m² footprint per module) , including the R1234ze TG310 range which has been specifically developed for use with the low Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerant R1234ze, the TurboChill™ Water Cooled is a truly flexible and resilient chiller.

Its scalable modular design, enables multiple modules to be connected via a common waterside and an integrated multiple module control strategy. This means that capacity can easily be increased at a later date, as capacity requirements grow, by simply adding more modules. Also, component layout is designed to enable several units to be positioned side by side in restricted plant rooms, yet still ensure easy access to essential components.

Innovative compact spray type evaporator technology means that the TurboChill™ Water Cooled reduces space claim (m²) by 67% and refrigerant charge (kg) by 56% but provides the same performance when compared to a traditional flooded shell and tube evaporator of the same nominal capacity.

All units incorporate the latest Centrifugal TurboCor compressor technology. These intelligent, self-optimising compressors enable 30 – 100% variable speed control for tighter setpoint management and unbeatable efficiencies at part load.

Magnetic bearings within the centrifugal compressor levitate the compressor shaft and with no mechanical contact or friction between mating surfaces, the need for lubrication is eliminated with near silent operation.
