  • Refrigerant leak detection input (option)

Designed to support Green Building Design

  •  LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification

New generation of Carrier 06Z variable-speed twin screw compressor

  • Twin screw compressor optimized for variable speed operation
  • Separate air-cooled inverter drive for increased reliability
  • Integrated Resonator Array (IRA) to reduce the sound level by up to 6 dB(A) when compared with previous 06T generation
  • Integrated Check Valve for quiet shutdown
  • Bearing life exceeding 100 000 hours
  • A dedicated oil separator is installed at the discharge of each compressor to ensure maximum oil return
  • Volume index control (Vi) valve provides a reliable method of adjusting the compression ratio to better match system demand
  • Screw compressors work on the positive displacement principle to compress gas to a higher pressure. As a result, if there is an unusually high pressure in the condenser, the compressor does not switch off, but continues operation at reduced capacity (unloaded mode)
  • The silencer in the oil separator line considerably reduces discharge gas pulsations for much quieter operation
