TurboCor Chillers

Most Energy Efficient Chiller for New or Replacement Application

An owner focus on reduced energy consumption in Europe and the United States has resulted in the rapid adoption of TURBOCOR Compressor Chiller, as the chillEWWD FZXS R medium Thumbnail0er of choice for the majority of current DATA CENTRE Installations.

Other applications include: - industrial refrigeration, industrial cooling, airports, hotels and hospitals.

Oil Free Compressor Technology

Our suppliers are specialist Chiller manufacturers who focus on the use of oil-free centrifugal chillers, driving down whole life cycle ownership costs, reducing carbon footprint, thus making a contribution to the future of the planet.

Whether Water-Cooled or Air-Cooled, all chillers are designed to optimise the performance of oil-free centrifugal compressors. The Compressors use oil-free magnetic bearings and variable speed drives to deliver better EER’s than conventional oil-lubricated centrifugal, reciprocating, scroll and screw compressors. They are also high speed – up to 48,000 rpm, very compact, very quiet, rugged and reliable. Power Factors up to 0.92 are typical.

Proprietary magnetic bearings replace conventional bearings, eliminating high friction losses, mechanical wear and high maintenance oil management systems, to deliver energy savings of 35% and more over conventional while ensuring long term reliability. Over 90,000 magnetic bearing machines are operating in the field, mainly in the high-end vacuum pump and CNC spindles – any innovation risk with this component technology has been long overcome.

Turborcor’s one moving part (rotor-shaft and impellers) is levitated during rotation by a digitally controlled magnetic bearing system. Position sensors at each magnetic bearing provide real-time feedback to the bearing control system. 120 Times each revolution, ensuing constantly centred rotation.

Main Features Include: -

Extraordinary Soft-Start Efficiency
The compressors power electronics, further enhanced by proprietary chiller controllers, require only 2 amps for start-up, compared with 500-600 amps in conventional machines. Further savings for owners, who can reduce maximum power loads and reduce backup generator size, cost and capacity.

Very Quiet
Very low sound and vibration levels, because there is no physical contact between moving metal parts, eliminate the need for expensive attenuation. Chillers are typically so quiet, in fact, that a novice cannot tell whether they are actually operating.

Energy Cost Saving can be Spectacular
Compared to a new screw chiller, the energy efficiency is routinely more that 32% better. Compared with older lubricated reciprocating, screw, scroll or centrifugal chillers, year round savings can be spectacular, with well over 50% savings.

Part Load Efficiency
Under ARI conditions,  performance can be as low as 0.33 kW/TR while partial load efficiency can be well under 0.30 kW/TR
**Why part-loads are critical
The vast bulk of the chiller operation is at part load – enabling much lower operating costs from a Turbocor Chiller than from a lubricated alternative.
