Carrier is introducing two new innovative cooling solutions, ideal for the Middle East. The new XPower variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system and AquaForce® 30XV air-cooled screw chiller were recently launched at events in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Carrier, a world leader in high technology heating, refrigerating, ventilating and air conditioning solutions, operates in the United Arab Emirates through UTS Carrier, a joint venture company between United Technical Services (UTS) and Carrier Corporation, and is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).
The events attracted more than 200 attendees who heard presentations from Carrier business leaders and engineering experts, highlighting the new products’ high energy efficiency ratings and features.
“We are proud to launch these highly efficient and versatile products in the United Arab Emirates,” said Mohammed Al Qaisi, general manager, UTS Carrier. “At Carrier, we are committed to continually innovating and always listening closely to our customers to design and redesign our products to meet their needs.”
Carrier’s XPower VRF is ideal for the Middle East region as it operates in high ambient conditions - up to 54°C - with a high efficiency ratio (EER) of 14. It consists of 12 different types of indoor units with a wide capacity range, including fan coil units and air handling unit (AHU) connectors. Installation is easy with condenser units with a small footprint and easy-to-transport, flexible piping that reaches up to 1000m for a single refrigerant circuit and can connect up to 64 units indoors with automatic addressing.
Carrier’s AquaForce® 30XV air-cooled screw chiller is highly versatile and energy-efficient with a range of benefits, including tiered capacity offerings from 140 to 500 tons as well as a variety of innovative features. To ensure performance and efficiency, the AquaForce® 30XV has variable frequency drives that are IP55-rated and fully air-cooled by ambient air. It also utilizes a next-generation rotary screw compressor, which is designed and optimized specifically for variable frequency drive operation: no slide valve, reduced pulsation, lower noise and better efficiency.
The AquaForce® 30XV offers a footprint that is significantly smaller on average versus conventional designs while achieving best-in-class industry-leading IPLVs above 21 and fully meeting ASHRAE 90.1-2016 requirements. The AquaForce® 30XV is ideal for use in UAE’s ambient conditions. With its operating envelope in ambient temperatures of -29° to 55°C, it is suitable for a wide range of applications including schools, hotels, data centers, offices and residential buildings. The AquaForce® chillers with Greenspeed® intelligence deliver superior efficiency throughout its operating range to keep costs down. This exceptional performance provides significant energy savings and lowers the cost of ownership.
