Carrier Commercial is pleased to announce one of its most innovative new products has been recognized as a finalist in the Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine 2017 “Product of the Year” program. The AquaForce® 30XV Air-Cooled Screw Chiller with Greenspeed® intelligence was recognized by the publication, which bills itself as the industry’s premier construction engineering resource for commercial building systems.
Carrier’s relentless focus on innovation has yielded an industry-leading integrated part-load value, making it the most efficient chiller serving applications from 140 to 325 tons. The 30XV chiller line also offers a flexible, tiered approach to provide an optimally sized chiller to fit customer’s needs including the smallest footprint chiller to exceed ASHRAE 90.1-2013 specification.
The new line features variable-frequency drives for the compressors and fan motors along with advanced PIC5+ intelligent controls to help provide optimal chiller performance. The 30XV series chiller builds on Carrier’s growing portfolio of smart connected chillers, as well. With the addition of Carrier® SMART Service as an available, factory-installed option, building owners and facility managers can now experience an entirely new level of equipment connectivity solutions including: remote diagnostics, long-term performance trending, benchmarking, decision analytics and advanced notifications. By leveraging new insights derived from these capabilities, Carrier SMART Service can help increase equipment reliability, reduce energy and maintenance expenses and lower resource consumption.
The AquaForce 30XV chiller is ideally suited for office buildings, schools, data centers, hotels and hospitals and any other applications where a quieter operation, high efficiency and flexible footprint are essential.

Carrier is pleased to announce it has received awards from two well-respected and independent organizations. Carrier’s Dual-Stage Relief Economizer (DSRE) rooftop upgrade feature captured the 2017 AHR Expo® Innovation award in the Green Building category. The innovative DSRE also won the Silver Award for “Product of the Year” from Consulting-Specifying Engineer® magazine.
Carrier's DSRE is similar to a typical economizer with barometric relief but also integrates an additional relief plenum from the building space that bypasses the traditional barometric relief dampers. This patented design has two relief stages: the first stage of natural relief is through the new dedicated barometric relief plenum that provides relief when the building pressure warrants, regardless of the economizer damper positions or the indoor fan status. The second stage provides additional barometric relief through the traditional return air damper barometric relief path as the outdoor air dampers open further for free cooling. The DSRE uses no motors, fans or electricity to relieve building pressure and can help eliminate the need for electricity-consuming power exhaust fans.
