Chiller delivers incredible efficiency for more sustainable buildings
Carrier Thailand today unveiled the innovative AquaEdge® 19MV oil-free water-cooled centrifugal chiller designed to deliver reliable performance, incredible efficiency, easy installation and a wide operating range. With capacity from 300 to 700 tons (1,055kW – 2,461kW), the AquaEdge 19MV combines best-in-segment efficiency for design and the ability to operate at severe conditions due to unexpected building operation or extreme weather. Carrier Thailand is a part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), the leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions.
The AquaEdge 19MV leverages proven EquiDrive™ two-stage back-to-back compressor technology, now with magnetic bearings, to achieve best-in-segment performance while staying quiet and cool under pressure. This revolutionary EquiDrive compression and drive train technology provides expanded operating range while improving chiller energy efficiency and building resiliency for specifying engineers, building owners and facility managers.
The many features and options of the AquaEdge 19MV are designed to make buildings better by allowing optimization of HVAC systems, building operations and data:
- Compact footprint for easy installation: Fits through double doors (72 inches by 80 inches) without disassembly.
- Low noise: Operates at less than 80 dBA.
- Refrigerant options: Available with the choice of low global warming potential (GWP) R-513A or R-134a.
- Economizer: Leverages the two-stage compressor design to increase refrigerant liquid subcooling and evaporator capacity for more performance per square foot.
- Expansion control system: Dual expansion valves (EXVs) provide redundancy at typical operating conditions and ensures full capacity at virtually no lift for excellent cold weather performance.
- Greenspeed® intelligence variable frequency drive (VFD): Enables starting and operating with cold condenser water while providing enhanced performance at off-design conditions.
- Carrier® SmartVuTM control panel: Provides intelligent control and easier tracking and analysis of operational data, and the ability to link the control system to a building automation system for remote access to the chiller’s running data.
- The BluEdgeTM service platform: Helps keep the equipment running efficiently throughout its lifecycle with proactive solutions to reduce unplanned downtime.
“Sustainability, health and wellness are a few secular trends that will drive sustained growth for buildings,” said Adisak Rammanee, Managing Director, Carrier Thailand. “These trends are accelerating the environmental, social and governance (ESG) policies of many multinational corporations to reduce energy and lease offices in environmentally responsible projects. To support businesses in their sustainability journey, we hosted a sustainable solutions seminar for business partners where we launched the all-new AquaEdge 19MV, which combines efficiency with the ability to operate reliably, even in severe conditions and heavy cooling loads, improving building efficiency and sustainability.”
The AquaEdge 19MV supports Carrier’s 2030 ESG goal to reduce its customers’ carbon footprint by more than 1 gigaton. The 19MV is built on the legacy of Willis Carrier’s breakthrough invention of centrifugal chiller technology 100 years ago.
