Carrier Corp., a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX)., unveiled its new AquaForce® 30XW heat recovery chiller at its latest factory “Green Done Easy” customer event and demonstrated how the AquaForce 30XW can be paired with Evergreen® 23XRV chillers to optimize energy savings.
Over 70 consulting engineers and building owners witnessed two Carrier Evergreen® 23XRV chillers with Foxfire™ compression technology operating in series counterflow along with a simulation of the AquaForce 30XW.
“By combining the AquaForce 30XW heat recovery chiller with our Evergreen 23XRV chillers, we can reduce boiler and chiller energy, adding significant savings in some applications,” stated Tom Franaszek, business unit manager, North America Building Systems and Services (BSS). “Both products exceed ASHRAE 90.1 standards and can be incorporated into Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Green Building Rating System projects.”
The AquaForce 30XW offers other innovative features as well. Heat mode controls adjust compressor capacity to maintain a constant leaving condenser water temperature as high as 140°F. Additionally, the chiller features two independent refrigerant circuits, each with a semi-hermetic twin screw compressor providing redundancy and increased part load efficiency. Continuing Carrier’s leadership with non-ozone depleting systems, the AquaForce 30XW uses HFC-134a refrigerant. At only 48" wide, the AquaForce 30XW also provides ease of installation.
