Aqua Series Water-Cooled Chillers - The Right Choice for Today and Tomorrow
Carrier’s comprehensive line of water-cooled chillers are designed to enable chiller plants to achieve superior efficiency at true operating conditions without compromising the environment. These units boast integrated part-load values (IPLV) to 0.288 and full load kW/Tons to 0.505 while utilizing either HFC-134a, HFC Puron® or HFO-1233zd(E). Aqua Series water-cooled chillers are ideal for replacement or new construction with small footprints and easy disassembly options. The newest addition to the Carrier water-cooled chiller product line, the 19DV, utilizes HFO-1233zd(E), an A1 refrigerant. Carrier chillers are also manufactured in an award winning, LEED® certified plant.
Chillers operate at design conditions less than one percent of the time. As a result, superior part-load efficiency is required in today’s chilled-water applications. AquaEdge 19DV, 19XRV and 23XRV chillers are equipped with a factory-installed, variable-speed drive, maximizing chiller efficiency by optimizing compressor operation. Electric power consumption drops dramatically when the motor speed slows. The 19DV and 23XRV deliver industry-leading IPLVs as low as 0.288 and 0.299, respectively. The 19DV pairs excellent full load and IPLV performance to reduce demand (peak kW) and energy ( Kwh) consumption.
With Carrier’s special seismic-complaint package, the Aqua Series water-cooled chillers meet or exceed the California Office of Statewide Health and Planning Development (OSHPD) standards.
To save time and help support engineers and architects in more accurate design, construction planning and fabrication, Carrier is able to provide Revit® Building Information Modeling (BIM) drawings for their entire line of chillers. Developed by Autodesk®, Revit BIM is a building design software which allows users to create multi-dimensional architectural models, evaluate building alternatives and work collaboratively before beginning construction. Carrier BIM objects are configured to the design and specifications of each piece of equipment.
With a factory-installed integrated communication card, connecting Carrier water-cooled chillers to a BACnet® system has never been easier. Simply connect the UPC Open to the BACnet network, and Carrier equipment is ready to integrate seamlessly into Carrier’s i-Vu® Open control system or any other BACnet building automation system. Pre-programmed to share equipment data, no onsite engineering is required.
An efficient means of generating hot water is through the heat reclaim capabilities of Carrier’s 19DV and 30 series water-cooled chillers. Carrier chillers with heat reclaim capabilities can produce chilled water controlled to the necessary temperature while generating hot water as a by-product of the chilled water system. This heat reclaim captures energy that would otherwise be wasted to the atmosphere increasing overall system efficiencies. Unlike typical boilers with COP (coefficient of performance) less than 1.0, capturing waste heat from a heat reclaim chiller can result in COPs exceeding 5.0.
