New AquaForce® 30XW-V Chiller with Greenspeed Variable-Speed Technology
Carrier introduces its latest high-efficiency screw chiller, the AquaForce® 30XW-V, reinforcing the company's position as a leader in the water-cooled chillers market. Carrier, the world’s leader in high technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. With a capacity of 590-840kW, the AquaForce® 30XW-V screw chiller incorporates the innovative Greenspeed technology which delivers high performance and optimal energy consumption in demanding industrial and commercial settings. Utilizing Greenspeed variable-frequency drive (VFD) technology, the AquaForce® 30XW-V is a premium solution for installers, consultants and building owners who require outstanding efficiency and operational performance. The inverter-driven, twin-rotor screw compressors allow the precise matching of capacity and building load changes and significantly reduce unit power input, especially at part load, achieving an Integrated Part Load Value (IPLV) of 10. This efficiency level can reduce a building’s air conditioning energy consumption by up to about 30 percent compared to a chiller that uses a fixed-speed screw compressor system.
The AquaForce® 30XW-V screw chiller offers industrial and commercial customers a best-in-class solution for underground railway systems, hotels and office buildings, as well as retrofit projects.
“The AquaForce® 30XW-V with Greenspeed technology represents Carrier's continuous innovation and technology leadership in developing efficient, reliable and environmentally responsible solutions for buildings and infrastructure projects. This product again demonstrates our innovation capabilities to stay ahead of the market and meet ever increasing customer demands and emulates the cutting edge technology in this segment” said GaurangPandya, Managing Director, Carrier India. Based on budget and return-on-investment (ROI) analysis, Aquaforce® with Greenspeed technology offers customers a best-in-class solution with ROI achieved in less than two years compared to traditional alternatives.
Furthermore, the AquaForce® 30XW-V variable-speed screw chiller is a compact solution for energy-efficient building retrofit projects. With a width of approximately 1.2 meters, the AquaForce® 30XW-V can easily pass through standard door openings and installed in small spaces. The AquaForce® 30XW-V features Carrier’s new color touch pilot control, a new generation of integrated controls that offers customers a user-friendly full-color touch screen interface with advanced web capability and easy access to all unit parameters from a clear single-screen display. Its heat mode controls adjust compressor capacity to maintain a constant leaving-condenser water temperature of as much as 50 degrees Celsius. As a new member of the Carrier variable-speed product family, the AquaForce® 30XW-V is available in customized AdvanTE3C solutions. The AdvanTE3C Solution Center was launched in Asia in 2011 to provide tailor-made sustainable building system solutions to address specific customer applications and optimize chiller plant efficiency. These capabilities underscore Carrier’s commitment to improving the environmental performance of its products and solutions to help achieve a sustainable society and protect the natural environment for future generations.
