The New Carrier AquaForce® PUREtec™ Range of High-Temperature Heat Pumps: The Solution for Smart Heating Production
MONTLUEL, France -
The Carrier AquaForce PUREtec 61XWHZE range is a new generation of high-temperature heat pumps using lower global warming potential (GWP) HFO R-1234ze refrigerant and delivering hot water up to 85 degrees Celsius. Carrier, a world leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.
The new 61XWHZE range offers more sustainable cooling and heating solutions using renewable energy. The heat pump can utilize both natural sources, such as groundwater and sea water, and wasted heat sources, such as data centres, grey water or industrial processes, to offer sustainable energy solutions for multiple heating applications.
The combination of Carrier technology and HFO refrigerant allows AquaForce PUREtec 61XWHZE to supplement traditional boilers in applications such as district heating or industrial processes. The 61XWHZE units can also simultaneously produce chilled and hot water to supplement boilers and replace chillers. These units are also very efficient, reaching a COP of 3.0 or more.
“More and more, government environmental programs provide financial incentives to support renewable heat production,” said William Doll, Marketing Manager Europe, Carrier HVAC Europe. He added: “Today we already have prestigious project references with 61XWHZE high-temperature heat pumps in Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, France and Netherlands for multiple applications like data centres, district heating, process applications, entertainment centres or hospitals.”
