Carrier’s AquaEdge Chiller Wins Air Conditioning Product of the Year Award
LONDON, United Kingdom -
Carrier’s AquaEdge® 19DV water-cooled centrifugal chiller won the Air Conditioning Product of the Year Award – System/Standalone in the prestigious RAC Cooling Industry Awards 2019. Carrier, a world leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative HVAC, refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.
The awards were presented by celebrity compere Russell Kane, at a gala held at the London Hilton on Park Lane, to over 500 industry professionals. Carrier’s award for the AquaEdge came in one of the most hotly contested categories and follows last year’s win for its AquaForce 30KAV as Chiller of the Year in the same event.
The AquaEdge chiller is designed to offer the ultimate in flexible and efficient cooling and heating technology. Running on low Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerant R-1233zd(E), it is designed to minimise impact on the environment and future-proof buildings from changes in F-Gas-related legislation.
The judges said Carrier’s AquaEdge chiller was “a truly innovative re-invention of existing technology and a real environmental advance.” Innovative features include an EquiDrive™ compressor with ceramic bearings built to last the life of the chiller, a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) that protects the chiller against ‘dirty power’, and a Smart Service display that provides maintenance staff with intelligent analytics on chiller operation.
With built-in capability for variable flow, heat recovery and free cooling, the chiller is designed to be reliable, flexible and energy efficient.
“We are delighted to receive this independent industry recognition for Carrier’s outstanding AquaEdge chiller,” said David Dunn, managing director for Carrier UK sales. “Every building is different, and the design, usage and layout have a huge effect on heating and cooling needs. With its innovative technology and design, the 19DV is able to meet all requirements and offers an ideal solution for large buildings. Once installed, users may never have to think about it again.”
