Carrier Corp., a world leader in heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR), has introduced a new series of 30-100 ton WeatherMaster® large rooftop air conditioning units, which feature non-ozone depleting Puron® refrigerant and scroll compressors and exceed ASHRAE 90.1-2007 efficiency requirements. Carrier Corp. is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).
The new WeatherMaster rooftop series offers significant improvements in efficiency while maintaining replacement compatibility with existing Carrier equipment. Utilizing Carrier’s Novation™ heat exchanger technology, the rooftop units provide improved condenser coil structural integrity while reducing the amount of refrigerant required, lowering maintenance and operational costs and limiting the environmental impact. The digital scroll compressor option provides unlimited stages of capacity for enhanced temperature control and improved occupant comfort. The double wall construction option is ideal for indoor air quality (IAQ) sensitive applications.
Designed as a direct replacement for existing hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC)-based legacy rooftop air conditioners, the new WeatherMaster series offers a wide range of options that are available for either factory or field installation, depending on the customer preference or installation requirements.
The WeatherMaster large rooftop series is available in vertical or horizontal discharge arrangements and with constant or variable air volume, allowing the units to be customized for a variety of applications.
Joe Chirco, Carrier Building Systems and Services airside product business unit manager highlights the benefit of these units, saying, “Our newest WeatherMaster large rooftop series offers an environmentally sound and energy-efficient solution for our customers to incorporate into all Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ projects.”
