GEA chillers satisfy Eurovent class A
29. July 2009 GEA chillers are now also available in high-efficiency versionsGEA chillers satisfy Eurovent class A
Beginning immediately, GEA Air Treatment GmbH, of Herne, Germany, now also offers air-cooled chillers in series GLAC 0152-0612 BD1 as high-efficiency models (HE). As a result, these HE units – which offer approx. 40 to 130 kW of rated cooling capacity, depending on the model – satisfy the strict requirements for Eurovent class A. In addition to these models with top energy efficiency for outdoor installation, the chillers of this series continue to remain available as standard machines and in an extra-quiet SL version.
If the customer is looking for high cooling capacity with a minimum of energy consumption, GEA chillers in the new HE version represent the ideal solution. After all, the new HE units achieve EER1) values up to 3.18 under full-load conditions. The ESEER2) ratings (which also take into account the partial-load cases that frequently occur in comfort climate control) even reach values up to 4.4. These new chillers have already been integrated into Lplus, the GEA design software.
The following plots show the ratios EER and ESEER for several models in the series GLAC 0152-0612 BD1: for the new HE version (green), the standard models (red), and models in the especially quiet SL version (blue).
HE versions for other chiller series are planned to be available soon. These developments mean that GEA Air Treatment is once again implementing its slogan “Air Eco2nomy”: after all, reduction in consumption of resources goes hand in hand with more careful interaction with our environment, and with reduction in operating costs.
