Bitzer: The refrigeration and air conditioning specialist BITZER donates four compressors to the Wadi Al-Seer College in Amman, Jordan

The refrigeration and air conditioning specialist BITZER donates four compressors to the Wadi Al-Seer College in Amman, Jordan

 

Four new additions

 

Amman/Sindelfingen, 27.02.19. The refrigeration and air conditioning specialist BITZER presented the Wadi Al-Seer College in Amman, Jordan, with four refrigeration compressors on 30 January 2019. The college will use them for training purposes.

 

The Wadi Al-Seer College in Amman is an institution of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). Palestinian students are trained as technicians there. In the commercial and industrial refrigeration class, the students learn how to service and repair domestic and industrial refrigerators, upright freezers and cold stores. BITZER is providing suitable visual aids for this. 

 

Making education tangible

Newly acquired knowledge is retained better if theory is accompanied by practice. BITZER therefore donated four refrigeration compressors to the college, and these are now an integral part of its refrigeration and air conditioning courses. A cutaway model and an exhibition model of a reciprocating compressor and two scroll compressor exhibition models with a tandem design have found a new home at the Wadi Al-Seer College. They were presented to the college by Stefan Leitl, Managing Director BITZER Middle East, and Rachid Assebbane, Customer Support Engineer BITZER Middle East, in an official ceremony. 

 

From trade fairs to college

Stefan Leitl says: ‘I am delighted to see our exhibition and cutaway models being given a new lease of life, so to speak. What could be better for a compressor once it has been used at a trade fair? It is very rewarding for us to see that the compressors are very useful here at the college and that the students and teachers alike are impressed by them.’ The models can be used to explain the individual compressor components clearly and make them easy to understand. More than 80 students are enrolled in the area of HVAC and refrigeration; the college also offers other areas of study. 

 

 

 

The BITZER Group is the world’s largest independent manufacturer of refrigeration compressors. With its distributors and production facilities for reciprocating, screw and scroll compressors, as well as heat exchangers and pressure vessels, BITZER is represented all over the globe. In 2017, 3,500 employees generated sales of €740 million.

Georg Fischer: The revolution continues: COOL-FIT 4.0 for maximum performance and safety in industrial refrigeration

The revolution continues:

COOL-FIT 4.0 for maximum performance and safety in industrial refrigeration

When GF Piping Systems introduced the revolutionary COOL-FIT system, it completely changed the way refrigeration applications are planned, installed and operated. COOL-FIT 4.0 continues the revolution spectacularly: A technological leap for users with the highest demands for production and process safety and maintenance of high quality food storage facilities. COOL-FIT 4.0 helps you work with maximum effi­ciency while simultaneously reducing your maintenance and operating costs.

 

COOL-FIT 4.0 is a complete system made of factory pre-insulated pipelines, fittings, valves and hoses for secondary cooling with brine, glycol and ethanol as well as cooled water in the range of – 50 °C to 60 °C. “COOL-FIT 4.0 brings the unique advantages of our pre-insulated systems to users with the most demanding cooling and freezing applications,” says Mark Bulmer, Global Segment Manager Cooling at GF Piping Systems. “These include companies in food and beverage production, such as fruit and vegetable processors, slaughterhouses, breweries and supermarkets.”

COOL-FIT 4.0 shares the advantages of all COOL-FIT products compared to metal systems:

• 100 % maintenance-free, as plastics are permanently corrosion-free: The media pipe, insulation and shell of COOL-FIT are made of high-quality plastics and so are corrosion- and

maintenance-free throughout the system’s entire operating life. This reduces expensive interruptions of operation and lowers maintenance costs and personnel requirements.

• 100 % reliable over the system’s entire operating life:The especially smooth interior surface of the medium pipe, typical for plastic systems, reliably prevents deposits. That means: No loss of pressure over the entire useful life, COOL-FIT remains as efficient as on the first day.

 

• Planning and installation are simplified due to 65% less weight:COOL-FIT is much lighter than traditional metal systems and so places much lower structural demands on buildings and supporting structures. Heavy transportation aids are no longer needed at the construction site, or they can be reduced.

 

• 50 % faster installation:Factory pre-insulation of COOL-FIT replaces traditional insulation after installation, which often requires a second team at the construction site. You receive finished and permanently insulated components, which can be used without delay.  


• Lower operating costs because 30 % more energy-efficient:The low heat conductance of plastic and the highly efficient and robust foam insulation together increase your system’s energy efficiency. That helps save energy costs and makes your work more environmentally friendly.

 

At the same time, COOL-FIT 4.0 offers additional decisive advantages:      

 

• Connected in a few minutes:The design has been further improved and simplified - no unnecessary or complicated installation steps. The system can be installed neatly and easily and connected within a few minutes through electric arc-welding. The system can start up without delay.

 

• Installation also outdoors:The new design also allows the use of COOL-FIT 4.0 outdoors. All surfaces are sealed, and so protected from rain and all other influences, also UV-resistant. The sealing lip of the fittings surrounds the pipe and reliably protects the insulation from water and ice.

 

• Always control of the quality:Thanks to its reduction of installation steps and use of electric arc-welding as the connection means, COOL-FIT 4.0 permits a degree of control that was previously not possible. Installation errors are largely excluded in advance, which ensures a system of the highest possible quality.

 

“COOL-FIT 4.0 is a technological leap, the fruit of many years of development efforts,” says Daniel Dossenbach, Head of Pre-Insulated Systems at GF Piping Systems. “It markedly improves planning, processing and service life. The result is a system with maximum capability, which is also esthetically attractive.”

 

COOL-FIT 4.0 is a solution from GF Piping Systems, the global expert for safe and reliable transport of water, chemicals and gas, with customers in more than 100 countries. GF Piping Systems offers complete system solutions made of plastic with more than 60,000 products and supports you in all phases of a project - from planning to initial start-up.

Eckelmann Made-to-measure OEM refrigeration controller for plug-in refrigerated cabinets

Made-to-measure

OEM refrigeration controller for plug-in refrigerated cabinets

 

Wiesbaden (Germany), December 4, 2018: Eckelmann is expanding its portfolio with OEM solutions for plug-in refrigeration cabinets. With the VCC-PI-500 the company presented a prototype of the new Virtus Case Controller Plug-In series at this year's Chillventa. The modular electronic solution can be adapted exactly to the type of cabinet – from the hardware to the connections for sensors and actuators to customer-specific function and software adaptations.

 

The individual choice of construction and design means that the controllers can also be installed in refrigeration cabinets in a particularly space-optimized manner. Since only the functions required by the manufacturer are implemented, the controllers are extremely compact. The cabinet-specific connection technology also reduces wiring to a minimum. A clear connection assignment largely eliminates typical faults in switch box wiring. Even more convenient is the installation with cabinet-specific pre-assembled cable harnesses, which Eckelmann offers as an option.

 

With the new OEM solutions, manufacturers of refrigerated cabinets can accelerate the market launch of their appliances and reduce costs. Eckelmann develops and manufactures OEM controllers in its modern electronics production facility in Wiesbaden, Germany, from medium quantities – in high quality, thanks to automated test and inspection procedures.

 

Another advantage of the compact plug-in controllers is the possibility of easy connection to remote refrigeration systems. Central monitoring and management tasks can then be implemented via the E*LDS system control centre, for example, from alarming and temperature recording to time-controlled tasks for intelligent defrost management or lighting control. Plug-in solutions in discounters can thus be automated much more efficiently and safely.

CABERO Wärmetauscher GmbH & Co. KG

NEW HYBRID GENERATION DUO       

 

The showpiece for implementing synergies. Optimises and simplifies processes, provides more leeway and multiplies the currently available options.

The new and revolutionary system of hybrid cooling. 

A completely new hybrid system, which offers decisive advantages for plant construction and operators.

While the commercial hybrid systems currently available on the market are capable of achieving cooling limit temperatures of 3-5K with a high outlay on use of materials, the DUO achieves 1-2K, by means of an intelligent patented cross-counter current interconnection. This means that cooling temperatures of 23-24° C at 21-22° C wet bulb temperature are possible from now on.

 

The positive effect on the EER value of the refrigerating machine at such temperatures is already widely known. However, there is another decisive advantage:

 

Additional water consumption is reduced to a minimum.

 

Water treatment is far more efficient than in previous hybrid systems. This saves even more resources than was previously the case.

Without doubt, this system shows the way for future design, and in addition to absorption and compression chilling machines, opens up completely new fields of application.

 

Our sales engineers are about to start realising the first projects. The first systems will be delivered in Spring 2017.

Danfoss GmbH

Danfoss Turbocor® Compressor TG Series extended with several new models for use with HFO-1234ze

 

The recent international exhibitions demonstrate a large acceptance of R1234ze as a standard refrigerant in large chillers. Following the success of the TG310 compressor - pioneer centrifugal compressor for use with ultra-low GWP refrigerant in 2012, Danfoss releases four new TG series compressors.

 

Danfoss’ Turbocor TG series for low-GWP (Global Warming Potential) refrigerants enables chiller manufacturers to build climate friendly and sustainable solutions which are also supporting refrigerant regulations for reducing the direct and indirect CO2 emissions such as - the European F-Gas Regulation – and the US SNAP regulation.

 

Similar to the current TT series compressors, the TG series compressors are oil-free, variable-speed, magnetic bearing centrifugal compressors.  These products provide outstanding full and part load energy efficiency and feature a small footprint, light weight, low vibration, very low sound, intelligent controls, and soft starting characteristics. The cooling capacity is lowered by about 25% with an equivalent model using R134a, but the energy efficiency is slightly increased.

 

The new compressor models TG230, TG390, and TG520 are designed for standard temperature A/C applications

 

TG230 – Delivers a nominal capacity of 230kW (65 tons) at water-cooled conditions and 175kW (50 tons) at air-cooled conditions.  The TG230 compressor is available for nominal mains input voltages of 400V, 460V, and 575V.  

 

TG390 – Intended for water-cooled chillers and delivers a nominal capacity of 390kW (110 tons).  The TG390 is available for nominal mains input voltages of 380V, 400V, 460V, and 575V.   

 

TG520 Intended for water-cooled chillers and delivers a nominal capacity of 520kW (150 Tons).  The TG520 is available for nominal mains input voltages of 380V, 400V, and 460V.

 

A new compressor model for medium temperature applications is also available.  

 

TG230 MT – Available with the same range as the standard temperature version but with the capability to extend operation down to evaporating temperatures of -10 degrees C (+14 degrees F).

 

In addition to these models, the TG310 has been updated to include a new model for a nominal mains input voltage of 380V.  The TG310 was previously only available as 400V and 460V models.

 

 

Danfoss takes a proactive approach to further the development and use of low-GWP refrigerants to help abate global warming and to ensure the competitiveness of the industry.

 

Danfoss Turbocor TG compressors received AHR honorable mention in the green building category in 2017

Armacell

Armacell at the Chillventa (hall 8, booth 320)

 

•        Sharing know-how – building competencies 

•        Green building is on the rise worldwide 

•        BIM plug-in for planning technical insulation digitally 

 

Münster, 21 September 2018. – At this year’s Chillventa, Armacell will be presenting tried-and-tested system solutions and innovative services for the refrigeration and air-conditioning industry. Energy efficiency, digitalization, urbanization and growing global prosperity - these megatrends worldwide are shaping overall economic development and will further strengthen current trends in refrigeration and air-conditioning technology. Armacell is meeting the new challenges head on and sees the change processes as an opportunity for new business. 

 

Sharing know-how – building competencies 

 

The world of work is in a state of transition: ever more complex underlying conditions, which change faster and more unpredictably, make long-term, goal-oriented management and planning more difficult in every sector today. As the leading manufacturer of flexible foam for equipment insulation, Armacell wants to actively support distributors and installers in these transformation processes. By providing innovative services and sharing know-how the company assists its customers in their daily work, thus strengthening their competencies. 

 

Green building is on the rise worldwide 

 

In 2015, Armacell was the first manufacturer of flexible tech¬nical insulation materials to present environmental product declarations (EPDs) based on an independent lifecycle assessment (LCA). Environmental product declarations are becoming more and more important in the construction industry. They form the basis for designing green buildings in accordance with certification schemes such as LEED, BREEAM, or DGNB. Alongside fact sheets on the use of Armacell products in green building projects, the company now also provides Greencards. These compliance cards give a detailed breakdown of how many points can be collected in the various schemes with the respective Armacell product. The Greencards for the DGNB system have just been published. 

 

BIM plug-in for planning technical insulation digitally 

 

Armacell is also one of the pioneers in the industry when it comes to “Construction 4.0”. The new BIM plug-in for planning technical insulation for building service equipment digitally is seamlessly integrated in the AutoDesk Revit program. Unlike ventilators, for example, insulation has to be designed for equipment which has already been planned. The insulation material depends on defined param¬eters (such as the pipe diameter) and therefore has to be selected actively by the user. The software accesses the data required directly in the model and supports the user in select¬ing and configuring products. Direct export from the Armacell product database allows the entire product planning to be auto¬mated. This makes the planning and design process simpler and faster for the user and also reduces errors. The plug-in was developed as an add-on module for Revit versions 2015, 2016 and 2017.

 

Find out more about the comprehensive range of information and services at Armacell’s trade fair booth 8/320. 

 

Tip:At the Armacell booth you can see the installation qualities of Armacell products for yourself. An application engineer will demonstrate live how quickly and easily the highly flexible insulation materials can be installed in cold applications.

Climalife - Launching Greenway® Neo range 

Climalife, a leading specialist in the formulation of heat transfer fluids for more than 30 years, is strongly committed to solutions from plant resources.

Greenway® Neo : a technological and environmentally friendly alternative!

 

The Climalife R&D department has developed and patented this new formula Greenway® Neo for use across a range of applications inclu­ding refrigeration, air conditioning, heat pumps, central heating, thermal solar energy and sprin­klers. Climalife's objective is to offer a reliable and effective technical alternative to traditional based fluids.The Greenway® Neo secondary refrigerants / heat transfer fluids are formulated based on 1,3-Propanediol (Bio-PDOTM), the raw material used and produced by fermen­tation of natural 99.7% purified glucose syrup, and long-lasting organic corrosion inhibitors. The Greenway® Neo formula continues to be borax-free in compliance with European Direc­tive 2005/58/EC dated 15/09/2008.

 

In compliance with the ISO 11930 international standard, Greenway® Neo is bacteriostatic. This anti-microbial protection prevents bacteria proliferation in thermal facilities. The new range of Greenway® Neo is approved on the A list from the French General Health Department for heat treatment by simple water exchange intended for human consumption as defined by ANSES and also approved by Belgaqua, the Belgian Professional Federation for the water sector, according to the standard NBN-EN 1717 as a fluid category 3.

 

The new range of Greenway® Neo is the re­sult of a technical collaboration between Clima­life and Dupont Tate & Lyle, manufacturer of the raw material Bio-PDOTM (Susterra®).

The contribution by DuPont Tate & Lyle of the technical characteristics of this new plant-based raw material has allowed Climalife to add its expertise to its application and to deve­lop a specific formula that meets the needs of each business sector. (refrigeration, air condi­tioning, heating, renewable energy).

 

Our partner:

DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products is proud to offer Susterra® 1,3-propanediol to the market because our company's mission is to provide customers a competitive advantage by offering a glycol with superior performance from a petro leum-free, sustainable and renewable resource.

The unique thermal stability of Susterra® offers differentiated protection from acid buildup at high temperatures seen in applications such as solar thermal. A decrease in acid buildup re­sults in a more efficient system with a longer lifespan, which means a better return on a cus­tomer's investment in equipment.

Susterra® offers excellent freeze protection and has better viscosity than propylene glycol at low temperatures, so it can help increase the efficiency of pumping equipment. Susterra® 1,3 propanediol is also readily biodegradable, ma­king it a good choice for customers looking for a safe glycol with low toxicity. It is less irritating to the skin than propylene glycol, and is safe for incidental food contact.

Now, materials like Susterra® 1,3 propane­diol can be derived from renewable sources, making the promise of carbon neutrality and independence from petroleum a possibility. Susterra® is certified 100% biobased by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, making it at­tractive for business owners seeking renewable content in their products.

A peer reviewed life cycle assessment (LCA) demonstrates that the production of biobased propanediol offers significant environmental benefits including up to 40 percent less green­house gas emissions and 40 percent less non-renewable energy used in production ver­sus petroleum-based glycols.

At DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products, we be­lieve products such as Susterra® can offer our customers differentiated performance while still protecting the environment and reducing the world's dependence on petroleum.

CLIMALIFE - Launching HFO Refrigerants to market

Climalife remains at the forefront offering new lower GWP refrigerants to its customers to help them meet the requirements of the new F-Gas regulations.

 

Climalife were one of the first to offer Performax® LT (R-407F) which has established itself as the prime lower GWP alternative to R-404A and is already in widespread use in both commercial and non commercial installations. With a GWP of 1825 it is more than 50% lower than that of R-404A at 3922.

Climalife are working closely with a number of customers to develop the use of the very low GWP refrigerants such as R-1234ze, which has the potential to offer some real energy saving benefits in chiller, heat pump and medium temperature applications for new equipment as alternative to R-134a. The GWP is just 7 (IPCC 4th assessment) and already good results are being reported by those who are leading the way in its use.

 

The very low GWP HFOs can also be used in blends with other refrigerants to try and closely match the desired properties of much higher GWP refrigerants.

Climalife   in conjunction, with producers are bringing new solutions to their customers so they can trial these new refrigerants in both existing and new technologies that they are developing.  One of the first of these is Solstice® N13 (R-450A) a non flammable replacement for R-134a with a GWP of 605 (IPCC 4th assessment). The product is launched at Chillventa and Climalife will be in a position to distribute commercial quantities, as required. Initially it is being used in supermarkets medium temperature systems, but it can also be used in other applications where R-134a has traditionally been used.

The latest Climalife Contact 7 magazine, which will be available at Chillventa will features some new case studies from Climalife operations across Europe where low GWP refrigerants have been successfully used.

These include the use of R-450A in a cascade refrigeration system at French supermarket chain, Auchan, the use of R-407F in a refrigerated transport application in Switzerland by Heller AG and the use of R-1234ze and HFO Blend Solstice® N40 (R-448A) in the UK by Precision Refrigeration in new refrigerator and freezer counter models for food service applications.

 

The new F-Gas regulations bring many challenges, not least the move to lower GWP refrigerants over the next few years and Climalife are excited to be at the forefront of bringing new refrigerants to their customers to achieve the demands that are placed upon them. Climalife are well versed in change having helped their refrigeration and air conditioning customers successfully move from CFCs and then HCFCs in the past.

 

More refrigerants are under development, some, such as Solstice® N40 (R-448A) are expected to be available early next year and Climalife are well placed to help their customers trial, share technical expertise and help them decide which are best suited for their requirements in their specific applications.

The choice of the oil/refrigerant combination is crucial for the proper operation of installations

 

A compression refrigerator produces cooling at constant pressure by evaporation of a refrigerant in the liquid state, followed by compression and condensation of the fluid to transform it from vapour to the liquid state. It uses a compressor which in most cases must be lubricated. Proper operation and optimum performance are ensured by choosing fluids and oils that are compatible with the machines, types of evaporators (direct or embedded expansion system) and the desired operating conditions.

The refrigerating circuit is subject to pressure, temperature and expansion phenomena which requires perfect compatibility between oil and refrigerant.

 

Role of the lubricant in a refrigerating circuit, 3 main functions:


- Lubrication of moving parts,

- Leak tightness,

- Motor fluid for some control and cooling devices in the case of screw compressors for example.

Though the lubricant is essential for the compressor to reduce friction, wear and improve the seal during compression, conversely, oil in the refrigerating circuit must be kept to a minimum to prevent heat transfer loss.
 

Essential properties:

- Lubricity: related to the thickness of the oil film.
- Solubility with the refrigerant in the gaseous state.
- Miscibility with the refrigerant in the liquid state.
- Viscosity: resistance to temperature variations.
- Flocculation point: important, particularly in the context of installation conversion.

E.g. in an installation converted with R-134a + POE ISO 22, the flocculation temperature of POE will increase from -53°C without residual mineral oil to +16°C with 5% residual mineral oil.


Oil has many other properties such as pour point, stiffness, dielectric, moisture content, chemical stability, thermal stability, hydrolysis resistance and acid value.

 

Installation conversion: oil as a flush solution

 

When converting an installation in good condition to hydrofluorocarbons , POE oil can be used as a flush solution for the oils in service. Climalife, on the strength of its many experiments with this type of operation, recommends using POE oils with an appropriate viscosity grade for machines to remove mineral oils or alkylbenzenes from circuits by successive draining and operating with HCFC, as well as the in-service compressor.


The compatibility of all system components should be checked beforehand and will be combined with a number of implementation measures and precautions. When the residual minimum has been reached (checked by DPH analysis), after recovering the HCFC fluid and changing all incompatible components, the HFC replacement fluid can be loaded with a new POE oil.

 

The installation will then be restarted and optimised by the appropriate settings. When the use of a solvent is not necessary, this solution is much easier and faster to implement.

 

Checking the state of the oil:

The oil plays a key role in the proper operation and useful life of the installation. There are several ways to check its in-service state

Acidity test: Climalife offers
Acitest Unipro in a single bottle to instantly check the acidity of the in-service oil on site (regardless of its type MN/AB/POE, etc.).


DPH
analyses: for larger installations or those with a maintenance contract.

The DPH, performed in the laboratory, determines the health of your oil and therefore your installation with as much precision as a medical analysis. The oil's values are compared to standard values and recommendations are made by our experts.

Frequency controlled compressor unit E-FU-DO

  

The Robert Schiessl GmbH increased the product range of frequency controlled compressor units.

In the new product line the HI-compressors from manufacturer Dorin are used, which are especially Designed for the operation by a frequency converter.

This compressors stand out through their extraordinary smooth running performance in the whole Frequency range from 20 to 90 Hz.

This is achieved by using the internal patented ‚kinetic accumulator‘.

Further new components are the Power Electronic Yaskawa frequency converter, which operates with the new TCC control concept. Compressor units which two compressors start with one compressor frequency controlled at low refrigeration load, at increased load demand both compressors are operated parallel by the frequency converter.

The result is a wide capacity range with an excellent control performance of the units.

There five different sizes offered with one compressor and five different sizes with two compressors.

The frame concept originates from the well known E-FU-BO compressor unit series.

The units are designed primary for the use with refrigerant R134a at medium temperature conditions.

ECO Rack Cascade Modul for Refrigerant R134a/ CO2

The compressor rack series ECO Rack which was shown at the Chillventa 2012 will be enlarged with cascade moduls and racks for the creation of a subcritical cascade System for medium temperature/low temperature which operates with R744/ CO2 in the low stage.

This concept allows with the three parts ECO Rack for MT/cascade modul/ Eco Rack for LT a flexibel creation of cascade systems.

The common frame concept allows the positioning side by side and create an optical unity.

Having three parts gives advantages for transport, insertion on site and certain flexibility for placement.

The three components have to be connected only at the refrigeration lines.

The cascade moduls are available in 13 different sizes and will be expanded. For start there are 13 corresponding COECO Racks with three compressors available. Also the product line of this CO2 compressor racks will be widened for the future.

May 2014:

New differential pressure transmitter model 982R for original equipment manufacturers

 

At the Mostra Convegno Expocomfort exhibition held in Milan in March 2014, we presented a new differential pressure transmitter model 982R for monitoring low air pressures. This differential pressure transmitter has primarily been developed for OEM customers, with the focus on ventilation equipment manufacturers.

 

The 982R is a differential pressure transmitter that has been reduced to essential functions in order to sell it at a lowest possible price.

 

Ventilation equipment manufacturers know very well the technical specifications of the components to be used in the products they make and are aware of what measuring range and what output signal are necessary for this purpose.

Beck manufactures and supplies the 982R differential pressure transmitter exactly in conformity with these requirements concerning both the measuring range and the output signal. Just the signal attenuation can be subsequently adjusted locally. Complex selection functions on the product have been omitted so that the pressure transmitter will be ready for instant installation at the customer's production line.

 

The 982R comes exclusively in OEM packages containing 100 items per carton. This is similar to the 930.8x Climair® OEM differential pressure transmitters that are supplied in lots of 45 pieces per carton.

 

First samples for certain measuring ranges are already available, while series production for any other measuring ranges will be started by late May 2014.

 

 Thus, we hope we again can provide you with another product that will emphasize your and our competence in differential pressure measuring.

HKT
Goeldner-Compressors

Natural refrigerants, low GWP and special applications with Goeldner-Compressors

 

On 2014 HKT Huber-Kälte GmbH, manufacturer of Goeldner-Compressors, will emphasise on the natural- and low  GWP refrigerants, as well as efficient special applications.

Within this context a high temperature heat pump for domestic hot water preparation, which has Goeldner-Motion-Compressor on board, will be presented. Through this unit it is shown how efficient a heat pump working at 80°C can be, if it is built of high quality components and a sophisticated concept.

Secondly a R723 (mixture of ammonia and dimethylether) out of the range "TwinEco" will be on HKT booth. This device uses the electrical drive capacity in both directions.
With it 5,2kW thermal and 4,3kW cooling energy are produced from 1kW electrical energy. In a hotel for example you can make warm water or heat the spa/swimming pool on the warm side and run the air condition/cold room on the other side.

The Goeldner-Motion-Range HS/HT 12 to HS/HT 34 will be equipped with the new on board inverters (IP65). In co-operation with the manufacturer of the inverters it was possible to program the motec 8400 with the same characteristics like the predecessor types with 15 years experience. The new devices can be adopted to the existing system without big changes. At this the system not only gets profit from the new design (smaller and less weight) it also has a much higher starting torque (200% for 60sec compared to 160%). If an inverter of the range 8400 has to be changed it is equipped with a storage module which can be plugged into the new one and no more programming is necessary. The machine is in operation again without delay.

As well the whole Goeldner-Compressor-Range, with its unique features like the bearing of the eccentric shaft by ball bearings and the pipette lubrication system, will be shown. This design makes the compressors operating very well and absolutely reliable also with the extremely oil soluble hydrocarbon refrigerants in a wide speed range from 20 to 75Hz (600...2200rpm).

All open-type Goeldner-Compressors made by HKT Huber-Kälte-Technik GmbH are given free for NH3 (R717) as well ammonia/dimethyl-ether (R723). The direct coupled motor-compressor unit, type O 12 1DK100, will be there. It is the smallest available unit on market, only having a stroke volume of 6m3/h.

Additionally different compressor units, parallel units and condensing units built of the HKT construction set with Goeldner-Motion-Compressors on board will be shown. With these units HKT is in the position to supply tailor made and energy efficient solutions for nearly every demand.

Further the delivery extent and configuration of the compressors and units are pushed. At which the Goeldner-Motion-Condensing-Units are equipped with EC external impeller motors in addition with the relevant controls. But also the big 4 cylinder compressors, type HS/HT 54, are by standard equipped with the latest diagnosis motor protection device, combined with the AMS mini triple PTC-Thermistors placed inside the wiring.

Linz, 28th January 2013

HAUSER unveils MERANIS IMM-XL deep-freezing cabinet

 

New refrigerated cabinet from HAUSER helps to save energy and reduce carbon emissions

  

With the new MERANIS IMM-XL deep-freezing cabinet, HAUSER has set new standards in goods presentation. In keeping with its slogan 'so cool. so beautiful.', HAUSER has combined energy-efficient technology with attractive design in its latest refrigerated cabinet. Direct integration of the shop-around end in the long island not only ensures a visually coherent design but also simplifies installation of the shop-around end considerably. For the first time, energy-saving LED lighting is directly incorporated into the handrail, producing highly even illumination. The new deep-freezing cabinet has already been installed at Burkl in Dachsbach, one of the first carbon-neutral supermarkets in Germany. Thanks to HAUSER's energy efficient technology, the supermarket is now saving around 50 percent in energy, 62 percent in operating costs and 46 percent in carbon emissions (compared to a conventional supermarket of similar size). "The MERANIS IMM-XL deep-freezing cabinet combines elegant design and improved goods presentation with a cost-efficient refrigeration concept. The unit therefore represents a secure long-term investment for the customer", explains Gerold Knapitsch, Managing Director of HAUSER.

  

HAUSER's MERANIS IMM-XL deep-freezing cabinet is notable for its homogeneous design, which makes installation easier and allows the shop-around end to be regulated separately from the long section. The transparent design eliminates the central support between the glass panels and promises 30 percent greater product visibility thanks to a glass height of 415 millimetres. Meanwhile the integrated shop-around end conceals any cabinet joint and facilitates a full view of the goods. HAUSER has also enhanced handling for the MERANIS IMM-XL thanks to its lower profile, removable and easy-to-clean floor compartments, removable base tub, large components and fewer plastic parts. At the same time, the goods presentation surface is 16 percent larger than that of the predecessor model.

 

Clear view for greater merchandise density

As for the glass cover, customers have several options. Curved and flat versions are available: the Clear Ice Push opens by pushing up while the Clear Ice Slide opens by sliding sideways. The new Clear Ice Push3 version (a three-part, curved glass cover that slides within itself and has no central support) makes access to products particularly easy.

The illumination of goods has also been optimised: efficient LED lighting available in two colours consumes nearly 70 percent less electricity than conventional neon tube lighting.

 

Improved refrigeration concept, simple assembly

For the MERANIS IMM-XL, HAUSER has also optimised thermal management and refrigeration technology for the long term. The result is a 7 percent reduction in overall energy consumption per square metre and a 26 percent reduction in the electrical rating compared to the predecessor model.

 

Saving energy and cutting carbon emissions

At the highly energy efficient supermarket in the German town of Dachsbach, HAUSER designed the entire refrigeration system in line with the H-POLE energy optimisation concept. At the heart of the system is the new MERANIS IMM-XL deep-freezing cabinet, combined with a CO2 hybrid system and HAUSER's Eco ES Geo compound cooling and heating system. The system utilises waste heat from freezing and normal refrigeration as a heat source, along with geothermal energy via ground probes. In this way, the supermarket is able to achieve significant energy and cost savings. Compared to a standard R404A system or a conventional heating system, the supermarket with the HAUSER refrigeration system realises annual savings of around 237,000 kilowatt hours of electricity and €20,365 in operating expenses as well as 193 tons of carbon dioxide. The saving on carbon emissions alone is equivalent to the annual output from 103 cars. The HAUSER refrigeration system also facilitates a reduction of around one third in the TEWI value (total equivalent warming impact). HAUSER is already working hard on its next innovation: an energy upgrade that will also raise the evaporating temperature significantly.

Externally, the Virtus 5 convinces by an altogether narrower design with a noble anthracite-colored display frame and the lower weight.

 

For configuration, a touch display is available and a modern web interface, which can be used in any browser independent of platform, so that no additional configuration software is needed. Visitors at the booth of Eckelmann can learn about the new web-based operating concept, which meets the increased demands of today's users regarding an intuitive interaction design.

 

Strong innovation partner for refrigeration technology 4.0

"The generation, provision and evaluation of data streams from machines, plants and buildings creates unimagined possibilities for providing digital services," explains Dr. Ing. Frank Uhlemann: "We no longer only think in sectors or markets. We think in 'digital ecosystems' and we are establishing new partnerships. This is why we would also like to enter into dialogue with users, operators and other manufacturers at Chillventa. Whatever will be possible in refrigeration tomorrow, we are designing together today! Anyone who thinks linearly is overtaken exponentially. With the Virtus 5 from Eckelmann and the new Virtus LINE, our customers in 27 countries around the world are ready for the challenges of digitization."

 

Upgrade for existing plants

The Virtus 5 is downward compatible with older E*LDS components. Existing plants can therefore easily move to the more powerful Virtus 5 platform. This gives operators investment security and, at the same time, they can benefit from the rapid technological developments of the coming years – from digitization to Industry 4.0 & IoT to the use of artificial intelligence.

In addition, Eckelmann offers a pure software upgrade (CI 5x00) for the system center of the CI 4x00 family. This also provides a cost-optimized way for older systems to benefit from the new web-based operating concept and to connect to modern cloud or IoT applications. For example, refrigeration contractors and operators of existing systems can gradually switch to the new, standardized E*LDS operating concept, although the extended functionality and excellent performance of the new Virtus 5 cannot be achieved on the old hardware platform.

Lindner Group

New technology for heating and cooling with Lindner Plafotherm® Heated and Chilled Metal Ceilings
Excellent sound absorption by perforated heat conducting profile

The latest product range "Acoustics" expands the range of versions of the product line Plafotherm® Heated and Chilled Metal Ceilings.

The new, perforated heat conducting profile enables an excellent sound absorption. The product name "Plafotherm® B 100 Acoustics" shows the application of the new heating and cooling technology unlike the "Plafotherm® B 100" which contains a non-perforated heat conducting profile.

The sound absorption coefficients of the perforated heat conducting profile are nearly comparable with inactive metal ceiling systems. Both with and without mineral wool inlay the new technology provides excellent results. Thus, e.g. a sound absorption coefficient aw of 0.70 without mineral wool and even 0.80 with mineral wool will be achieved with a perforation of 20 % open area and complete distribution with heat conducting profiles. The cooling loss of 15 %, when using the perforated heat conducting profile, is almost negligible compared with the 60 % higher sound absorption of the new technology.

The high vertical range of manufacture of Lindner and the flexible production enable both customised ceiling panel formats with or without cut-out and the perfect realisation of your individual project demands. Every heating and cooling coil is manufactured object-related and customised. Cut-outs - e.g. for luminaires, beamer lifts or other fixtures - are individually observed at the coil manufacturing. Thus, the maximum distribution of the area resp. the maximum heating and cooling capacity can be carried into the room.

The manufacturing of our heat conducting profiles shows that Lindner Group pays special attention to an environmentally friendly production. There is little wasted material due to the order-related and customised production of the cold-rolled heat conducting profiles in our plant in Arnstorf. Furthermore, Lindner Heated and Chilled Metal Ceiling elements with powder coating, acoustic tissue and thermally conductive heating and cooling coils are classified as toxicological harmless. Tests proved that the content of VOC - volatile organic compounds - is far below the evaluation limit. Using the new heating and cooling technology, you are improving the acoustics in your room while supporting us with the environmental protection.

ASHRAE and IIR Establish New Definitions of Five Refrigeration Keywords

ASHRAE and IIR Establish New Definitions of Five Refrigeration Keywords

 

ATLANTA (April 11, 2019)– ASHRAE and the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) announced the establishment of new definitions for five refrigeration keywords. The keywords are cooling, refrigeration, chilling, freezing and cold chain.

 

The definitions are the result of more than a year of discussions and were established to clarify the meaning of basic terminology used in the HVAC&R industry.

 

“The new definitions will help those within our industry, as well as the general public, gain a clearer understanding of important refrigeration keywords that are often misused or too broadly defined,” said 2018-2019 ASHRAE President Sheila J. Hayter, P.E. “We appreciate the contributions of IIR and anticipate that the adoption of these definitions will be positive.”

To avoid confusion, the official definitions are:

 

Cooling

(1) Removal of heat, usually resulting in a lower temperature and/or phase change

(2) Lowering temperature

 

Refrigeration

(1) Cooling of a space, substance or system to lower and/or maintain its temperature below the ambient one (removed heat is rejected at a higher temperature)

(2) Artificial cooling

 

Chilling

Cooling of a substance without freezing it

 

Freezing

Solidification phase change of a liquid or the liquid content of a substance, usually due to cooling

 

Cold Chain 

Series of actions and equipment applied to maintain a product within a specified low-temperature range from harvest/production to consumption

 

“It was important that the differences that might exist in these definitions between the IIR and ASHRAE be erased for more consistency. It now seems important for us to reach even greater harmonization on an international level to establish universal definitions,” said Jean-Luc Dupont, head of the Department of Scientific and Technical Information of the IIR.

 

IIR has called on all national and regional organizations and associations to adopt and disseminate the new definitions.  The definitions will be included in ASHRAE Terminology, its free comprehensive online glossary of more than 3,700 terms and definitions related to the built environment, with a focus on heating, ventilating, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC&R), as well as building envelope, electrical, lighting, water and energy use, and measurement terms.

This significant reduction in GWP without sacrificing capacity and improving energy efficiency by up to 5% over R-410A, comes at a critical time for the European industry, currently managing through regional F-Gas Regulations that phase down the use of HFCs.

 

Opteon™ XL41 was specifically designed to enable OEMs to quickly transition away from R-410A without requiring major equipment design modifications, yet achieve the maximum possible reduction in GWP to satisfy long-term regulatory requirements. "As a R-410A replacement, XL41 offers the optimal balance of performance, safety, sustainability & cost, and is a prime example of how our Opteon™ portfolio brings value to our customers and the market," said Diego Boeri, vice-president of Chemours Fluorochemicals. "It's great to see Johnson Controls continue to drive their strategy with a long-term, sustainable refrigerant choice for air cooled scroll chillers that can withstand the many CO2 equivalent quota step-downs that are coming in the European Union F-gas Regulations."

 

Chemours is proud to offer a full portfolio of low GWP solutions to enable customers to meet their regulatory obligations and sustainability (both economic and environmental) goals. Opteon™ XL41 is part of a broad portfolio of Opteon™ refrigerant solutions for chillers, commercial refrigeration, air conditioning & heat pumps that allow the market to choose the optimal solution to meet their needs.

Automate refrigeration - integrate heating - save energy

 

Wiesbaden (Germany), 21.10.2014: At this year's Chillventa the E*LDS team from Eckelmann presented, amongst other things, innovative solutions for combined refrigeration and heating. The focus was on CO2 transcritical booster systems with multi-stage heat recovery via a continuously regulated gas cooler bypass. Installed in large supermarkets it can often completely replace conventional heating, quickly paying off the somewhat higher investment in the refrigeration system. The heat recovered is used to heat drinking and heating water. Regulation concepts for CO2 hybrid systems (R744 subcritical and R134a) with cascade heat exchanger will also be presented.

In numerous projects of all sizes Eckelmann as system partner has gained unparalleled expertise in the intelligent regulation of refrigeration system with heat recovery, from discounters to food wholesalers. Even special solutions such as the integration of geothermal energy and air heat pumps into combined refrigeration and heating systems can be simply realised with the highly flexible E*LDS control system.

Eckelmann not only offers a comprehensive, application-optimised range of refrigeration electronics - from case controllers and pack controllers to the E*LDS system control centre. The competent E*LDS team of specialists for control technology and experienced refrigeration technicians also provides customer support during planning and commissioning, as well as realising individual special functions at short notice. "Our customers' ideas enrich our innovation process", stated E*LDS product manager Michael Suhre. "This is also reflected in our trade fair motto ‘Powering Your Performance'."

The high end pack controller VS 3010 CT, specially developed for CO2 transcritical applications, combines all the regulation functions required for transcritical operation in one component. Thus the VS 3010 CT ensures extremely stable plant operation in all operating modes. The heat recovery is integrated into E*LDS via configurable function modules on the basis of programmable controllers (DDC) from Eckelmann. This enables e.g. the setpoint for the heat recovery to be seamlessly adjusted to the demands of the building control technology. This ensures that the refrigeration system always provides precisely the right amount of heat required at any time, intelligently and efficiently coupling refrigeration and heating.

Münster, 19 July 2018. – ArmaFlex is the only insulation system to achieve the top rating in a demanding CUI test and emerges as the clear winner of the independent investigation. The renowned corrosion institute InnCoa examined the capacity of five commonly used insulation systems to mitigate corrosion under insulation. The results are further confirmation of the excellent experiences which have been made with Armacell’s elastomeric insulation materials around the world for decades. 

 

The two-trillion-dollar problem 

Corrosion costs the world economy around 3.4 % of the annual global gross domestic product. That is 2.5 trillion US dollars. Some 40 % of world steel production is used to replace parts destroyed by corrosion. In Germany alone, corrosion destroys technology and infrastructure to the value of 75 billion euros annually. Not only the oil and gas industry is effected, billions of euros worth of damage also occurs in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food sectors every year.  

 

Insulation systems can reduce the risk of corrosion

Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is particularly insidious: if the corrosion processes take place hidden beneath the insula¬tion, they are often only discovered when extensive damage has already taken place. Insulation alone cannot safeguard plant components against corrosion, but appropriate insulation systems can support corrosion protection effectively. The choice of material decides whether the insulation mitigates the risk of condensation and corrosion or is likely to favour corrosion processes.  

 

Independent test by renowned corrosion specialists InnCoa

To what extent can insulation systems reduce the risk of corrosion? This was the question investigated by InnCoa, an institute based in Neustadt/Donau (Germany) which is specialized in corrosion testing. In the test, five commonly used insulation systems were installed on pipes and subjected to high humidity and a high ambient temperature for 65 days. Because the risk of corrosion is particularly high on equipment operated at dual temperatures, the circulating water flow was adjusted in a 24-hour cycle between 5 C and 80 C. InnCoa tested flexible elastomeric foams (FEFs) as well as insulation systems made of glass fibre, polyurethane and stone wool. At the end of the test, the insulation materials were dismantled and the surfaces of the specimens examined and classified according to EN ISO 10289. The corrosion protection ability is assessed with the degree of protection, RP, on a scale of 0 to 10. An RP rating of 10 means 0 % of surface shows corrosion or other defects (best rating). 

 

Corrosion protection ratings of the various insulation systems 

The two FEF insulation systems performed best in the test: the elastomeric foam with all-over adhesion even attained the top rating, RP 10. No signs of corrosion were found anywhere on the surface of the pipe. All-over adhesion of the insulation materials further increased the already high corrosion protection of FEFs. The glass-fibre insulation system, on the other hand, only had an RP of 4 to 5 and the polyurethane system achieved an RP of 5. The greatest corrosion damage was observed on the stone wool specimen. The surface area of defects was between 5 and 10 % of the total pipe surface, resulting in an RP of 3.

 

Long service life of elastomeric insulation systems 

The test demonstrated impressively that closed-cell flexible elastomeric foams which have an ‘integrated vapour barrier’ can reduce the risk of corrosion. The results confirm the excellent experiences that have been made with ArmaFlex insulation materials throughout the world for decades. As is often noticed during maintenance work, equipment insulated with ArmaFlex displays no sign of corrosion even decades after its installation. To ensure that the insulation system works reliably for many years, it is not only essential that the insulation thickness is calculated correctly and system-compatible accessories are used, but also that the materials are installed professionally following the manufacturer’s instructions.

 

Tip:The risk of corrosion under insulation is also the subject of a current information campaign by Armacell. The company uses tools such as videos, infographics and a special feature on the website to explain the importance of the insulation systems for preventing corrosion. See www.armacell.eu

Eckelmann AG of the Chillventa 2012 hall 5/5-304

E*LDS systems conveniently operated by touch

 

Wiesbaden, 10/09/2012: Eckelmann demonstrates its new, intuitive touch operated E*LDS control center CI 4000 at Chillventa 2012 (Halle 5/5-304). This central control unit sets the standard for connectivity of refrigeration control systems and meets the growing demand for integrated refrigeration facilities in building automation and IT infrastructure. Of particular importance is the TCP/IP based Ethernet communication: the CI 4000 becomes a direct, fast interface between CAN-bus and LAN. The central processor offers many new ways to access the E*LDS system: through the intranet, over internet services like LDSWeb, smart grid infrastructures and in the future also mobile applications. This also applies, of course, to the standardized exchange of process data with automation systems or components from other manufacturers, as the CI 4000 supports the widespread de facto standards Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU. In addition, the CI 4000 also uses the universal, platform-independent data exchange format XML. This makes it straight-forward to integrate E*LDS data with any Internet service or database application.

Also available in a full install are 4 serial RS232/485 interfaces, 2 CAN buses as well as 1 USB master and 1 USB slave. The USB slave is convenient for connection to a PC or notebook. The USB master allows easy connection to a mass storage device, printer or keyboard.



 

Simply touch for rapid implementation

Refrigeration control systems are becoming ever more complex, but the opposite should apply to their operation. The touch operation concept of the CI 4000 means operation and monitoring of an E*LDS system can be both fast and safe. All functions are accessible on the 800x480 pixel display. Clear icons make navigation easy.

"With the touch display we have introduced a whole new user interface philosophy but thanks to the familiar structure, experienced E*LDS users will quickly grow to like the new interface. We hope it will make installation and maintenance of the equipment faster and more efficient", says development leader Matthias Wolf. "And E*LDS beginners will find learning our control system intuitive."

There is an on-screen keyboard for text input. The ethernet interface also adds some interesting possibilities for remote monitoring of E*LDS systems: the desktop of the CI 4000 can also be controlled through the Remote Desktop Connection on a PC.

 

Yes, you CAN: more resources for larger systems

The system resources have been dramatically increased compared to the previous model. The CI 4000 can natively serve 2 independent CAN segments, each with 99 refrigeration controllers. This allows the construction of bus topologies with double the segment length. Without using repeaters it is now possible to supervise much larger facilities with a single E*LDS control system. For two separated segments, each segment can be operated with the full number of bus users. This means that there is no problem combining separate TK and NK controllers in a single machine.

With a greater memory capacity of 1 GB, the CI 4000 can archive temperature and operating data for a significantly longer period of time. It is possible to provide HACCP temperature documentation as well as extended system analysis of service and energy management, using the greater volume of data. The integrated webserver can present this date in HTML, XML or PDF format.

 

Totally backwards-compatible

In order that existing facilities can be easily upgraded with the new CI 4000, it has been designed with full backwards compatibility with the CI 3000. The housing is also fully compatible and there is no need to alter the cabinet door slot to accommodate the display.

COOL-FIT 2.0 - The revolution for efficient cooling

To meet modern society’s growing populations and their need for comfort and safety, GF Piping Systems introduces its new COOL-FIT 2.0 pre-insulated PE100 plastic piping system.

 

COOL-FIT 2.0 is the non-corroding, non-condensing solution for the transport of chilled water in climate control systems inside residential and commercial buildings as well as for data centers and industrial process cooling.

 

The system uses the tried and tested electrofusion jointing technique known from the ELGEF system, with industrial grade PE100 as the carrier pipe. All components are pre-insulated with GFHE* insulation (0.022 W/m.K), together with a load bearing, robust outer jacket in black HD-PE or stainless steel. This unique combination leads to highly competitive characteristics:

 

-       100% corrosion free

-       50% faster installation

-       30% higher energy efficiency

 

COOL-FIT 2.0 is a PN16 system suitable for fluid temperatures from 0°C to +60°C. The carrier pipe/jacket dimensions range from d32 mm/75mm to d140 mm/200 mm. Both pipe and fittings are pre-insulated with GFHE* to a thickness of 20 millimetres. GF valves, plastic to metal transitions, as well as hoses for easy connection to appliances are all also provided pre-insulated.

 

30 percent higher energy efficiency

The pre-insulated system is revolutionary efficient to reduce running costs and CO2 footprint. U-values (heat transfer) of COOL-FIT 2.0 pipes are between 1.0 and 3.8 W/m.K, up to 30 percent better than traditional steel pipes with foamed NBR rubber insulation.

 

Installation times reduced by at least 50 percent

COOL-FIT 2.0 combines three products – carrier pipe, insulation and jacket – into one revolutionary new product. The 3-in-1 concept ensures “on-site” time is reduced to an absolute minimum. No post insulation of the piping system and no time consuming and expensive pre-insulated pipe supports or blocks are required.

 

Application areas

+6°C / +12°C        Chilled water in air conditioning

+15°C to +45°C    Industrial cooling water

+5°C/ +8°C           Rack cooling water in data centres

Beck GmbH

Pressure monitoring for safety in buildings, air conditioning and clean-room technology

Eight-range universal-type differential pressure transmitter

Wherever gases are being conveyed under low pressure, differential pressure sensors can be used to derive some conclusions on the condition of the system. They find out, for example, whether butterfly valves are open or closed, filters are tight or fans are defective. In this connection, pressure variations are reliable indications of any changes in parameters. Thus, the most significant operating data will be permanently available in fields such as building automation, air conditioning and clean-room technology. To fit the various designs of such systems and to meet their requirements a new differential pressure sensor now offers eight different measuring ranges that can be selected. This will always allow you to choose your suitable measuring range without taking any expensive logistic and storekeeping efforts.

Being capable of covering all measuring points within a system by one and the same device will practically make your work a lot easier. This is what a type differential pressure transmitter having a wide, adjustable measuring range is ideal for. Even after subsequent modifications such as replacing a filter, you can quickly select the proper measuring range without any cumbersome sensor replacement. That is why the new sensor from Beck Druckkontrolltechnik even offers you eight different pressure ranges you can choose from with the aid of a rotary selector switch. To guarantee clear, linear response for each range the designers allowed the 984Q sensor to have automatic zero-point calibration. This is to reliably compensate any drifting as caused by ageing, temperature or by system-inherent influences.

This new piezo-resistive sensor can measure differential pressures from +/- 0.5 to +/- 5.0 mbar within four different ranges. Another four measuring ranges from 0 to 10 mbar are also available for choice. The three-wire output can be configured by means of a jumper to obtain a signal of 0...10 V or of 4...20 mA (with a load of 20...500 Ohms). Also with the aid of a jumper, the user can choose between a linear or a square-rooted signal. The latter is, for example, useful for measuring volume flows. At a supply voltage of 24 VAC/VDC, the maximum current consumption, including an LED display, is 210 mA. The sensor's IP54 enclosure has a diameter of 85 mm with an installation height of 58 mm. Two 6 mm tube ports for the pressure connection as well as M 16x1.5 or M 20x1.5 cable unions for cables and stranded wires of up to 1.5 mm² in size ensure easy fitting at the place of installation. The transmitters are in conformity with EN 60770 and EN 61326 as well as with RoHS according to 2002/95/EEC.

Güntner: The GPC turns 20 years old

Güntner: The GPC turns 20 years old

Fürstenfeldbruck, March 2019

The Güntner Product Calculator (GPC), well-proven and indispensable in the workplace, has set standards in the industry. For more than 20 years, this software has been the tool of choice when it comes to quickly and easily designing a heat exchanger.

 

Design based on thermodynamic calculations

From the very beginning, the GPC has operated using thermodynamic calculations to guarantee the correct configuration. In addition, actual thermophysical characteristics are used to identify the heat transfer values for all sub-processes to calculate pressure drops in the pipe, to determine air outlet temperatures and, if necessary, also dehydration. As a result, it has been (and still is) guaranteed that the promised capacity is provided, even in “exceptional” conditions. 

 

50 fluids and numerous application benefits

Aside from the time saving aspect, other advantages have come into play right from the beginning: it is possible to simulate different scenarios such as variable performance requirements, and errors are avoided because the calculation draws on actual thermophysical characteristics. Individual components are automatically aligned, and systems are configured with economic efficiency accordingly. More than 50 fluids in over 100 product series are available today. Offers can be drawn up in 16 languages, depicting current prices and delivery times. And it has not stopped evolving. To the next 20 years!

Chillventa 2018 a success for BITZER

 

Sindelfingen, 26.10.2018. 
BITZER, specialist for refrigeration and air-conditioning technology, is satisfied with this year’s Chillventa. At the international exhibition for refrigeration, heat pumps and ventilation, the company presented its product and service highlights at two stands. 

 

In line with the motto ‘Your Green World’, BITZER showcased its most important refrigeration and air-conditioning innovations in Nuremberg between 16 and 18 October, all the while focusing on the topics of alternative refrigerants, energy efficiency, services and intelligent solutions. 


For BITZER, the trade fair is the most important industry event in Europe. According to information provided by the organiser, Chillventa 2018 set a new record both in visitor and exhibitor numbers on the three days of the event. BITZER is also very satisfied with how the trade fair went: ‘Our exhibits and stand highlights such as the digital journey met with a great deal of interest. We’d also brought along a world premiere and prototype in the form of the EXPANDER unit, which turned plenty of heads. Our second trade fair stand, dedicated to BITZER heat exchangers and pressure vessels, was also a hit,’ says Patrick Koops, Head of Public Relations at BITZER. The company was represented by two stands this year for the first time; the main stand was one of the largest at the fair – as in previous years. 


With the EXPANDER unit, BITZER has developed a component which makes CO2 refrigeration systems over 20 per cent more energy-efficient: at an ambient temperature of 32°C, the subcooling unit increases the cooling capacity of a standard booster system at the design point by more than 20 per cent. Take for example a compound system: from a seasonal point of view, energy savings of up to 17 per cent are therefore possible in warm climates. The ALDI SÜD discount supermarket is already testing the first units in its stores.


Additional highlights at the BITZER stands included the publication of the new, updated refrigerant report, the digital journey to the company’s intelligent products and service topics, and the section of the stand dedicated to the SCHAUFLER Academy, the BITZER international training centre, with its many presentations. 

 

The BITZER Group is the world’s largest independent manufacturer of refrigeration compressors. BITZER is represented across the globe through distribution companies and production facilities for reciprocating, screw and scroll compressors, heat exchangers and pressure vessels. In 2017, 3,500 employees generated sales of €740 million.

JAEGGI ADC High Density: Maximum performance, small footprint

Basel, Oktober 2018. When developing the JAEGGI ADC High Density, achieving maximum power density was a key priority. These units are therefore ideal for high-power applications such as the cooling of IT systems. 

 

 

Extremely compact, enormously powerful

Even in dry operation, the extremely compact cube with a minimal footprint offers huge power and thus a high switch point for activating the adiabatic pre-cooling unit, which is attached over the entire height of the cube for maximum performance. All mounted parts and components are integrated into the casing. Even the high-performance, super low noise fans cannot be seen from the outside. 

 

Adiabatic pre-cooling system

Should the dry operation be insufficient, e.g. due to high ambient temperatures or heavy system loads, the start of the adiabatic pre-cooling practically switches on the turbo. With the pre-cooling operation, it is also possible to cool the fluid to below the ambient temperature. 

 

Perfect adjustment, easy bringing-in procedure

The ADC High Densitycan easily be adapted to very diverse requirements. Various combinations of materials, configurable tube materials and geometries as well as various tube circuitry options and fin spacings predestine the powerful cube to be designed with pinpoint accuracy. An added plus are the ideal dimensions for standard low-loader transport. And with the torsion-resistant construction and the factory-fitted transport lugs, it goes without saying that the units can be easily transported by crane without lifting beam. 

 

Intelligent controller reduces operating costs

The smart Hybrimaticcontrol unit continuously records the amount of water applied, the speed of the fans and the state of the ambient air. The necessary information for this such as the fan speed is read out from Güntner Motor Management GMM via the bus communication. This speed information can alternatively be transmitted using a 0 – 10-volt signal. The Hybrimaticis moreover capable of checking the operating costs during operation. This provides the basis for an integrated cost management function, which continually decides whether applying water or changing the speed represents the more cost-saving and therefore more efficient mode of operation, thus saving money. To this end, the water quantity is constantly recorded in this system. 

 

Efficient humidification system, hygienic operation

In this highly efficient humidification system, the easily replaceable humidification pads are only supplied with the amount of water needed depending on the situation. This minimises water consumption and prevents standing water. In the event of inactivity, the pre-cooling unit is automatically drained. The heat exchanger remains completely dry thanks to the separate pre-cooling unit. As a result, regulations such as the 42ndfederal law for the protection against immissions (BImSchV) which is in force in Germany do not apply to the unit. The clever design of the ADC High Density takes into account the recognised technical rules when it comes to the hygienic operation of evaporative cooling systems. 

 

Easy inspections, cleaning and maintenance

The ADC High Density is easy to work on. Thanks to a large lockable inspection door, all internal components can be accessed quickly and easily. This makes all inspection, servicing and maintenance work easier. Talking of service, not only are all spare parts available anywhere in the world, our service staff can assist you if you request this. The service includes all work which is necessary over the entire life cycle – from commissioning to disassembly.

BITZER shows compressor solutions at C&R in Madrid

BITZER shows compressor solutions at C&R in Madrid 

 

Madrid/Sindelfingen, 12.02.2019. The specialist for refrigeration and air-conditioning technology BITZER is exhibiting its product highlights at the trade fair for air-conditioning and refrigeration C&R CLIMATIZACION Y REFRIGERACION in Madrid, Spain. From 26 February until 1 March 2019, energy-efficient reciprocating, screw and scroll compressors as well as condensing units can be seen at the company’s stand 8D01 for a wide variety of applications.

 

ECOLINE+ for intelligent supermarket applications 

To be seen at the BITZER stand is the ECOLINE+ series with enhanced line start permanent magnet motor, which increases annual performance figures by more than 10 per cent. Also, BITZER has designed the VARISTEP mechanical capacity control for transcritical CO2 applications, which permits the operation of ECOLINE+ reciprocating compressors with a cooling capacity of between 20 and 100 per cent almost continuously. With the intelligent operating and protection concept for the optional IQ module CM-RC-01, BITZER is ensuring optimum efficiency from the VARISTEP capacity control system as well as the supply of oil and the efficient use of the crankcase heater. The mechanical capacity control system’s full potential can be exploited thanks to the integrated BITZER CR algorithm. The IQ module ensures that the ECOLINE+ reciprocating compressors can be easily, quickly and cost-effectively integrated into a variety of system configurations. Apart from that, the IQ module improves the protective measures as well as the monitoring options for the compressors, allowing them to be used in a wider range of applications. 

 

The ammonia solution: OS.A95

BITZER is also showing its open OS.A95 screw compressors for eco-friendly ammonia-based applications in industrial refrigeration and air-conditioning systems as well as in heat pumps. The OS.A95 series extends the capacity range of the open BITZER screw compressors for ammonia-based applications up to 1,015 m3/h at 2,900 rpm per compressor. By connecting up to four compressors in parallel, it is possible to increase the flow rate in compound operation up to 4,060 m3/h at 2,900 rpm. With the optional frequency inverter operation of the OS.A95, both the achievable cooling capacity as well as the seasonal efficiency of the compressors in the system can be increased even further. Typical applications include large commercial refrigerated and low-temperature refrigerated distribution warehouses, shock freezers, process chillers and ice rink systems. The IQ module, which comes as standard, protects the OS.A95 screw compressors while enabling communication with a higher-level system controller.

 

ORBIT - the most versatile scroll compressors on the market

With the BITZER scroll compressors ORBIT FIT and ORBIT+, contractors can meet legal requirements such as those of the F-gas Regulation and the Ecodesign Directive: as with the basic ORBIT 6 and ORBIT 8 models, both compressor series are compatible with A1 and A2L refrigerants. ORBIT+ features a line-start permanent-magnet motor and, like the ORBIT FIT with economiser technology, is synonymous with increased cooling capacity, efficiency and application limits. Both can also be operated with external frequency inverters such as the VARIPACK series by BITZER – and that within a frequency range of between 35 and 75 Hz. 

 

ECOLITE – the new condensing units from BITZER

BITZER has expanded its range of condensing units with a new series: the seven air cooled models in the ECOLITE series have been designed for low and medium temperature applications and are available in an attractive housing. The three LHL3E ECOLITE condensing units with one fan and the four LHL5E models with two fans open up a wide range of applications, from 1.5 kW to 5 kW in the low temperature range and from 3.5 kW to 16 kW in the normal temperature refrigeration range. Its compact, low noise design as well as the use of efficient components in combination with the capacity control of the semi-hermetic compressors make ECOLITE exceptionally adaptable. 

 

 

 

 

The BITZER Group is the world’s largest independent manufacturer of refrigeration compressors. BITZER is represented across the globe through distribution companies and production facilities for reciprocating, screw and scroll compressors, heat exchangers and pressure vessels. In 2017, 3,500 employees generated sales of €740 million.

BITZER Kühlmaschinenbau GmbH: BITZER provides spare parts with QR codes

BITZER provides spare parts with QR codes 

 

Sindelfingen, 17.01.2019Another measure in the fight against product piracy: the specialist for refrigeration and air-conditioning technology BITZER has added QR codes to the packaging of its Original Spare Parts. By scanning the code, users can check the authenticity of their products plus obtain further relevant information.

 

Product pirates not only sell counterfeit compressors, but also fake oils and fake spare parts. BITZER has been monitoring this development and continuously improving measures to confront this known problem and protect its customers. BITZER compressors have been equipped with QR codes for an authenticity check for years; this service will now be phased in for most BITZER Original Spare Parts as well.

 

Only original is safe

The secure QR code protects against counterfeits as it contains information that only BITZER can provide. Each QR code is linked to the specific part and the package it comes in. When scanning the code, customers receive the respective part description and picture, part number, BITZER specific protection data, as well as direct access to the relevant documentation in the BITZER spare parts software EPARTS.

 

Technologically sophisticated machines like compressors need perfectly tuned components to continuously guarantee high performance. Each spare part has to perfectly match the running system. BITZER Original Spare Parts are designed together with compressor development and thus are always considered state-of-the-art technology. They come with a parts warranty and match the highest operational standards of BITZER compressors, and fast supply is guaranteed by BITZER Global Logistics Centres.

 

Small, but decisive

The devil is in the details: first signs of counterfeits are often already visible in the packaging. These first hints may include poor alignment of the logo print, different colour schemes of the BITZER logo or a lower-quality cardboard box. Fake spare parts themselves show risks of low performance due to wrong dimensions as well as poor materials, machining and finish.

 

The use of non-original spare parts puts compressor safety and reliability at serious risk: they can lead to significant damages and could cause the compressor to break down. Therefore, BITZER recommends not to use such components. Customers are advised to contact their nearest BITZER office if they doubt the originality of their supposed BITZER spare parts or upon discovering counterfeits.

Damp insulation doesn’t insulate!

 

Armaflex insulation materials very well protected against moisture absorption; Sustained high energy efficiency

 

Münster, 19 March 2018. – Damp insulation is as useless as a wet woollen coat in winter. It does not protect the equipment against either energy losses or corrosion. A study by the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics has now confirmed that Armaflex insulation materials are very well protected against moisture absorption. The closed-cell elastomeric insulation material also achieves a sustained increase in the energy efficiency of technical systems. However, using mineral fibre materials on refrigeration pipes means taking an incalculable risk that can lead to significant follow-up costs.

 

Condensation – the deadly enemy of any insulation

For technical insulation, condensation is enemy number 1: if moisture forms on the surface of pipes or water vapour penetrates the insulation material from the outside, the insulation system has failed. The insidious thing about moisture penetration and condensation is that the processes are not visible. Condensation occurs under the insulation on the surface of the pipe. It often only becomes apparent that the insulation material has failed when the material is so wet that water drips from the suspended ceiling or ice forms on the pipe.

 

If moisture penetrates the insulation material:

-       energy losses increase,

-       corrosion can occur under the insulation,

-       mould can grow and

-       high repair and follow-up costs are incurred.

 

The insulation effect declines rapidly and the material eventually loses its function. So when selecting an insulation material, the key question is how well it is protected against moisture absorption. 

 

Insulation materials in an independent test

 

To study the moisture and condensation behaviour of various insulation materials, Armacell commissioned the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics (Stuttgart, Germany) to carry out a scientific test. The materials investigated were mineral fibre, PUR and FEF (flexible elastomeric foam). While the closed-cell elastomeric material has an “integrated” vapour barrier and the resistance to water vapour transmission is built up cell by cell throughout the insulation thickness, in mineral-fibre and PUR products the vapour barrier is restricted to a thin aluminium or PVC foil. In practice, it is almost impossible to apply this foil in such a way that adequate water-vapour tightness is achieved. Pipe brackets, elbows, T-pieces, valves, fittings etc. are hardly ever completely vapour tight. To simulate damage to the insulation system, which is the rule rather than the exception on the building site, two small holes (Ø 5 mm) were drilled 5 mm deep into the surface of three of the six specimens. The test conditions in the climate chamber were deliberately chosen to be moderate: the pipes were run at an operating temperature of 20 °C. The ambient temperature was defined as 35 °C and the relative humidity as 55 %. The test was conducted under these conditions for 33 days. 

 

Condensation on the pipes

 

During this relatively short test period, a significant amount of moisture had already gathered under both the PUR and mineral-fibre insulation. Even in these moderate conditions, the vapour barrier could not prevent the absorption of water vapour. In contrast, no moisture had diffused into the elastomeric insulation material and the surface of the pipe was dry. While the pipe insulated with FEF showed no sign of condensation after 33 days, the mineral-fibre insulation failed right at the beginning of the test, both with and without damage.

 

Long-term consequences of moisture penetration

 

To investigate the long-term effects of moisture absorption, the Fraunhofer Institute carried out calculations on the basis of these results and simulated how the insulation materials behave over an assumed period of ten years. While the thermal conductivity (λ) of the FEF has only risen by around 15 % after ten years, the λ-value of the mineral wool is 77 % higher and that of the PUR insulation 150 %. The thermal conductivity increases with every vol.-% of moisture content and the insulation effect deteriorates rapidly. The consequences are not only steadily rising energy losses over the service life, but also a fall in the surface temperature. If this drops below the dew-point temperature, condensation occurs and the risk of corrosion rises.

 

Elastomeric insulation protects against condensation

 

To prevent condensation on the pipe surface and an increase in the thermal conductivity over the service life, it is essential that the insulation material is protected against moisture absorption. The thermal conductivity stated must be understood as being the initial thermal conductivity or “dry λ-value”. Only in combination with the resistance to water vapour transmission may it decide which material is selected. In other words: an insulation material with an excellent “dry λ-value” but low resistance to water vapour transmission is a bad choice.

 

If the insulation material is completely soaked, the increase in energy consumption is often the least of the problems. Mould, structural damage, e.g. to suspended ceilings, or disruption to industrial processes due to maintenance work and down-time can result in huge costs.

 

Don’t take an incalculable risk

 

By using open-cell insulation materials in cold applications specifiers and installers are taking an incalculable risk, which can cost them dearly. Manufacturers of mineral-fibre products currently promote their insulation materials as being suitable for use in cold applications. Even if these systems are explicitly marketed as cold insulation materials, they are open-cell mineral-fibre products with an aluminium foil. The manufacturer’s 15-year guarantee does not alter the fact that in the event of a complaint the user is required to prove that the product was installed correctly.

 

In some European countries, the use of mineral wool on refrigeration pipes is severely restricted. In Germany, DIN 4140 stipulates that it is only allowed if a double jacket is installed. In Belgium, according to Typebestek/105, mineral wool may only be used on pipes with a minimum temperature of 13 °C.

 

Cold insulation materials should have a closed-cell structure, high resistance to water-vapour transmission and low thermal conductivity. Only then is it possible to ensure that diffusion processes are kept to a minimum permanently.

 

 

Tip: The risk of moisture absorption in insulating materials is also the subject of a current information campaign by Armacell. The company uses videos, infographics, brochures and a special feature on its website to provide information about the consequences of damp insulation. See www.armacell.eu for more details.

Small food retailers not prepared for refrigeration regulations, Emerson warns

 

Despite dwindling supply of environmentally harmful refrigerants, less than half of SME retailers in Europe have started to transition to more sustainable systems, survey finds

 

·      UN commitments and European regulation require the phase-down of environmentally harmful HFC refrigerants

·      HFC supply is due to drop 40% this year, which is driving up prices and causing a refrigeration shortage for food retailers

·      Refrigeration is one of the highest investments stores make, according to the Association of Convenience Stores

 

AACHEN, GERMANY, June 27, 2018 – Less than half of SME food retailers in France, Germany and the UK have started the transition from harmful HFC-based refrigerants to cleaner refrigeration alternatives required by EU regulations, according to survey data released today by global technology company Emerson.

 

Commitments set by the UN, along with EU regulation, means that food retailers need to shift away from refrigeration systems that run on hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) – an environmentally damaging refrigerant – and replace them with more environmentally friendly options. The phase-down is a progressive reduction of the refrigerant which started in 2015 and runs through 2030.

 

The biggest cut to the HFC supply happens this year, with a reduction to almost 40% from 2015 levels, which is already driving up prices and causing a refrigeration shortage for retailers. Yet, a ComRes* survey commissioned by Emerson reveals that food retailers – small food retailers with fewer than 200 employees in particular – are still learning how to navigate the change.

 

The data, which has been shared to coincide with UN Micro-, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises Day [#MSMEDAY18] – set up in part to celebrate the vital contribution these businesses make to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals – found that just under half (49%) of SME retailers across the European countries have started the transition, compared to two-thirds (66%) of large retailers with over 200 employees. Only two in five (40%) of SME retailers reported they were aware of the regulatory changes, compared to an awareness level of three in five (60%) by large retailers.

 

When asked about the biggest challenges in navigating the regulatory change, cost was unsurprisingly a significant factor. Forty-four percent of SME food retailers cited operational expenditure as one of their biggest concerns when thinking about refrigeration, followed by safety (39%).

 

Where SME retailers have started to phase-down HFCs, they are opting for different natural refrigerants as compared to their larger counterparts. The majority of SME retailers (58%) have transitioned to low GWP HFCs or Hydrofluro-Olefins (HFOs), compared to only 37% of larger retailers – HFOs are a compound similar to HFCs but with a lower global warming potential (GWP). Larger retailers are most likely to have transitioned to more sustainable natural refrigerants, such as CO2 (47%). A minority of SMEs and larger retailers have opted for hydrocarbons such as propane (15-16%, across SMEs and larger businesses respectively).

 

Despite being the most popular choice amongst SME retailers so far, HFOs are expensive and may be vulnerable to further tightening of regulations in the future.

 

This has significant implications as there are 5.5 million small and medium-sized enterprises in Europe’s retail and wholesale sector.

 

“While the HFC phase-down is a positive change for the environment, there is a risk the regulatory pressure is causing retailers to rush into stop-gap solutions that may not be best for the environment or for business,” said Eric Winandy, Director of Integrated Solutions, Emerson Commercial & Residential Solutions. “The research showed very few SME retailers have explored natural refrigerants like propane, which can reduce emissions and operational cost. There needs to be more education and support to help retailers select a clean and cost-effective refrigeration system that will serve the business best in the long-term.”

 

According to reports from the Association of Convenience Stores, refrigeration is consistently one of the highest investments that stores make, especially as chilled foods remain a fast-growing category in the convenience sector.

 

A spokesperson for the ACS commented: “The convenience sector continues to outgrow the rest of the grocery market as changing shopping habits drive more customers toward little and often purchases and top up shopping instead of a big weekly or fortnightly shop at a supermarket. Convenience stores have invested heavily in refrigeration over the last few years as food to go and chilled goods become more popular in small format retail. It’s important that retailers ensure that future investments are made with upcoming regulations in mind so that any new equipment is compliant.”

 

A research paper from Toby Peters, Professor of Cold Economy at the University of Birmingham, similarly recommended that the EU and national governments need to match regulation around refrigeration with support, as it does for other sectors. It called for:

 

·      Incentives for retailers to accelerate transition to low-impact refrigeration solutions;

·      Support for R&D into deeper integration of store refrigeration into electricity grids and district thermal networks;

·      Mandated certification and training in natural refrigerants, and the provision of enough funding to develop the skilled workforce required to support an accelerated transition; and

·      Increased investment into low-impact and sustainable cooling technologies and applications.

 

“Small businesses are the backbone of most European economies and have a significant role to play in combatting climate change, yet limited resources means they often bear the greatest burden when it comes to addressing regulatory changes. The industry and government needs to work with small retailers on the HFC phase-down, by providing incentives and education about the refrigeration options available,” added Emerson’s Winandy.

heat pump applications at Mostra Convegno 2018

 

 

MILAN (ITALY), March 13, 2018 – Emerson will present an unequalled range of solutions for reversible cooling and heating applications at Mostra Convegno 2018 in Milan. The new offerings are ready to meet the toughest environmental challenges in the residential comfort market and, at the same time, to improve manufacturers’ system performances and business results.

 

The upcoming regulatory changes which are affecting the HVACR industry, like the transition towards low GWP refrigerants for reducing the carbon footprint, as well as the EcoDesign Directive requirements for energy efficiency are driving the market towards more sustainable options. Emerson keeps abreast of these challenges and provides solutions that not only increase system reliability and efficiency, but also help manufacturers reduce development time and cost, by combining know-how in compressor technology and refrigerant circuit management.

 

During the exhibition, Emerson will show the optimized line-up of variable speed Copeland Scroll™ compressors, qualified for low GWP alternative refrigerants - R452B and R454B, as a replacement of R410A. The new YHV*P series ensures the same high performances, thanks to the brushless permanent magnet motor, matched with an efficient inverter drive. Moreover, Emerson integrates its EXV expansion valves and sensors into this solution, for a smart refrigerant circuit management. This solution covers a heating capacity range from 3 to 20 kW with an extended operating envelope for models without vapor injection and a widened modulated speed variation from 15 to 120Hz. Its low superheat capability as well as being equipped with Variable Volume Ratio (VVR) technology and the high volumetric efficiency valve - boosting both cooling and heating efficiency - provide a high seasonal efficiency.

 

Besides the efficiency benefits, the new range of YHV*P variable speed compressors, developed for warm, average to cold climates, represents the ideal choice in the transition towards low GWP refrigerants. The new package allows system manufacturers to accelerate their time to market while increasing the return on investment.

 

Emerson is aware of its customers’ needs, and continuously invests in the development of future-proof solutions that meet the industry challenges of today and tomorrow. At Mostra, Emerson will present its expanded line-up of propane scroll fixed and variable speed compressors with inverter drives, designed for heat pump applications. Due to the refrigerant’s excellent thermodynamic properties and its very low compressor discharge temperature, YHV*U models offer a high level of performance, efficiency and a wide operating envelope compared to R407C and R410A.

These propane variable speed models offer a capacity range from 1 to 10 kW and coupled with Emerson qualified inverter drives allow for a modulation range with speed variation from 15 to 120 Hz. Dedicated Emerson R290 controls complete the offering to an efficient propane solution which supports manufacturers in being compliant with the F-Gas Regulation as well as the EcoDesign Directive.

 

Visit Emerson’s booth March 13 - 16 at Mostra Convegno in hall 24, booth R29/S30, to find out more about these and other residential comfort solutions.


New Emerson solutions for commercial and industrial cooling applications at Mostra Convegno 2018

 

 

MILAN (ITALY), March 13, 2018 – Emerson (NYSE: EMR) is presenting a range of new solutions for commercial and industrial cooling applications at Mostra Convegno 2018. This new offering will help manufacturers build more performant cooling systems that are suitable for upcoming challenges in the commercial comfort market.

 

Increasingly stringent regulations, like the shift towards low GWP refrigerants in conjunction with the requirements for maximizing the energy efficiency are driving the HVACR market towards more sustainable choices. On one hand, OEMs need to review their equipment to meet minimum seasonal performance levels and on the other hand, they have to choose the best refrigerant option for mid as well as for long-term. At the same time, end-users insist on lowering energy consumption and operating costs.

To support the new market needs of customers, Emerson is investing in the development of a complete range of variable and fixed speed scrolls with high efficiency at part load condition, both equipped with new low GWP refrigerants.  

 

For commercial comfort applications, OEMs are converging to using R32 as the main refrigerant to replace R410A, but for industrial cooling applications there is a demand for medium and low-pressure refrigerants, and so far, there is not a clear preference towards one candidate. However, among all the alternatives, there is an increasing interest around R513A, due to its non-flammability.

 

During Mostra, Emerson will showcase the new series of R32 optimized fixed speed Copeland™ compressors designed for chillers, heat pumps, rooftops and all the other air conditioning applications. With a cooling capacity up to 150 kW for a single scroll, this new complete range is developed to meet the demands for high-performing compressors, designed for low GWP refrigerants. To assure the best interchangeability, and minimize engineering efforts during system re-design, Emerson will limit modifications of the fittings location, foot mounting and dimensions, compared to today’s ranges.  All the new compressors will be equipped with VVR technology, to increase the performance at part load, and consequently, to improve SEER by 5%. Furthermore, these compressors are fitted with a new Emerson electronic protection module, which provides compressor diagnostic via RS485 Modbus communication. Featuring these electronics, the compressors enable the system controller to define an advanced compressor protection strategy without compromises between down time and system reliability.

 

In the future, a further evolution of these embedded electronics will bring additional advantages to system manufacturers: the system controller will be able to optimize system performance even more, by getting access to real time compressor data that enables smart compressor management. As a result, system reliability will be improved, leading to reduced warranty costs. 

 

Emerson is also releasing new variable speed models with brushless permanent magnet motors, designed for R32. This new line-up with a capacity range up to 60 kW can also be used in tandem configurations with fixed speed compressors, for larger system capacities and optimized applied costs, without compromise on efficiency. Along with close-coupled Emerson inverter drives, the variable speed compressors deliver a widened modulated speed variation from 15 to 120 Hz. The new compressors are set up with VVR (variable volume ratio) technology, allowing for an enhanced part load efficiency. A wide operating map to address reversible as well as modern data center applications, together with superior performances are extra features which characterize the new ranges. The scroll capability can be extended and the superheat optimized when a complete Emerson integrated solution is used: the addition of Emerson valves and controllers with proprietary algorithms increases seasonal efficiency and provides a wider map for heating applications.

 

Visit Emerson’s booth March 13 to 16 at Mostra Convegno in hall 24, booth R29/S30, to find out more about these and other commercial and industrial comfort solutions.

Güntner Chillventa preview


FÜRSTENFELDBRUCK, August 2018

 

By launching the campaign "Chillax. – Rules may change. Safety stays the same.", the Güntner Group takes up the uncertainty prevailing in the market regarding the increasing demands in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry and demonstrates what a competent and reliable partner can do beyond purely technical aspects. Sustainability is the dominant topic that extends from the refrigerant issue to legal provisions on consumer protection such as legionella prevention, and to other legal requirements at national and international levels. The carefully developed products offer the customers durable quality that complies with the rules of the future already today. This way, Güntner’s customers can look ahead with confidence – whatever may happen.

 

Everything's possible – with the V-SHAPE Vario

The V-SHAPE Vario boasts a high power density. Be it as condenser, gas cooler or fluid cooler, and regardless of whether the desired refrigerant is HFC, NH3, CO2, propane or a water/glycol mixture, the V-SHAPE Vario offers everything – plus an extensive range of accessories. In addition to the HydroSpray pre-cooling system, also the HydroPad pre-cooling system is an available option for this product family. And, on top of this, we offer state-of-the-art controls for an energy-efficient motor management and the pre-cooling systems. And the AxiTop diffuser as standard accessory reduces the sound pressure level.

 

Structured diversity of air coolers – the CUBIC Vario

With its wide range of casing models and material combinations, different fin spacings and optimized tube and fin geometries for refrigerants ranging from HFC, NH3, CO2 and propane to fluids, the CUBIC Vario is suited for virtually every application. Fully in line with the Vario principle, the CUBIC Vario air coolers offer an extensive range of accessories, from repair switches to hot gas defrosting. 

 

Powerful and smart – the Güntner V-SHAPE Compact

The V-SHAPE Compact condenser and dry cooler product family offers maximum performance on a small footprint even when operated in dry mode and is ideal for commercial refrigeration applications. The HydroPad humidification pad for adiabatic pre-cooling enables refrigerating plants to be operated more efficiently, thereby saving money – without necessitating water treatment, labour-intensive maintenance work and wetting of the coil. The Güntner Hydro Management GHM pad determines continuously whether applying water or increasing the fan speed will be more cost-effective.

 

Well controlled means money saved – with the GMMnext

The new GMMnext is a Motor Management System of the latest generation for EC fans – for high-performance connection to the BMS. The controller is prepared for modern Industrial Ethernet protocols, and a new, intuitive concept makes its operation even simpler. And, compared with the previous GMM EC, the GMMnext has a display that has become three times larger. With customer benefits ranging from operational reliability to real time data analysis and to economic operation, there is nothing left to be desired.

 

Condensation pipe behind the scenes – the DUAL Compact

With the option of the integrated condensation water pump in the new DUAL Compact, the condensation pipe can be installed out of sight in the intermediate ceiling. The benefit for customers: This saves more time when cleaning, provides more comfort for employees and more transport safety. And, of course, the units are hygiene-certified according to HACCP. What's more, the new tray design allows for hinging the outer tray on both sides. For more flexibility during servicing.

 

Powerful, with small footprint – the ADC High Density from JAEGGI

At high external temperatures or high plant loads/high fluid temperatures, the new hybrid dry cooler ADC HD is your natural choice. Thanks to the HydroPad humidification pads, the heat exchangers remain dry, and it is possible to cool the fluid down to below the ambient temperature. Control panels, pumps and pads are integrated and wired in a compact cube – this plug-and-play system provides maximum power density on a remarkably small footprint. The new ADC HD rounds off the capacity ranging from the ADC to the HTK.

 

 

Millions of types, always unique– the FLAT Vario

With the modular type diversity of the FLAT Vario, Güntner is setting a new standard for the selection of condensers and fluid coolers. From millions of types, the tried-and-tested Güntner Product Configurator (GPC) configures an individual unit in line with the requirements of the customer. The process is fast and reliable and is based precisely on the application. With pinpoint accuracy. The FLAT Vario offers a large number of types in the model range with diverse material combinations, a wide capacity range, availability for all common fluids, an operating pressure of up to 120 bar as a standard for CO2 applications, and operational reliability and leak containment thanks to the well-proven Güntner floating coil principle.

Diversity in dry cooling applications: Güntner V-SHAPE Vario

Everything is possible with the Güntner V-SHAPE Vario: Condenser? Gas cooler? Fluid cooler? The great variety of individually configurable unit types offers a customized solution with standard units for any application.

 

 

Technically best solution

The precise configuration of a unit tailored to the requirements of the plant is performed quickly and reliably via GPC (Güntner Product Configurator). The wide modular variety of heat exchanger coils, sizes, fans and accessories allows the GPC to come up with such a perfectly tailored design. This results in a unit that is designed with pinpoint accuracy and offers reliable and durable quality in a capacity range of 75 kW to 2,100 kW for practically all applications. In addition to the conventional and new synthetic refrigerants, also the natural alternatives such as ammonia, CO2, hydrocarbons (e.g. propane) and water/glycol mixtures are of course selectable working fluids for the fluid coolers. The GGD gas cooler has a maximum operating pressure of 120 bar.

 

Low charge, low weight

On a technical level, the units were optimised in an impressive manner for operation with the respective fluids: The core tube diameters and materials, in combination with the fin geometries, provide the best possible combination of maximum capacity and minimum tube volume. The new condensers can thus notably contribute to reducing the refrigerant charge of a plant and its GWP. A lower charge can additionally contribute to minimising the number of required leak tightness tests according to the F-Gas Regulation. What's more, this also reduces weight.

 

High power density, extensive range of accessories

The V-coil design and minimum footprint make the V-SHAPE a high-capacity unit requiring little space. And the optional pre-cooling systems allow for increasing the capacity even further. The wide range of accessories is indeed worthy of the Vario product line: From control concepts adapted specifically for the unit to the optional AxiTop diffuser for improved airflow routing at the fan outlet and reduced sound pressure levels, the wide range of accessories allows to further adjust the unit to the respective conditions of the application.

 

HydroSpray and HydroPad pre-cooling systems

Wet or dry – the customer decides. With the HydroSpray accessory, water can be sprayed directly on the heat exchanger. Evaporative cooling increases the driving temperature difference and improves the performance. Especially in refrigerating plants implementing free cooling, e.g. for the cooling of server racks, such systems result in considerable energy savings. It is possible to improve the COP by up to 40 % through using a spraying system in a refrigerating plant when there are high ambient temperatures and the spraying is used to lower the condensing temperature. Due to the increased performance effected by the spraying system, also smaller fluid coolers and condensers respectively could be used while maintaining the same fluid temperature. In each case, the specially developed controller Güntner Hydro Management GHM spray controls, in the Basic as well as Professional version, the water spraying depending on the performance required by the heat exchanger and on the ambient and fluid temperature and thereby saves energy and water. Energy and water are also saved by the second available pre-cooling system HydroPad, particularly when combined with the Güntner Hydro Management GHM pad that is optionally available as well. On request, this control decides continuously whether applying water or increasing the fan speed is more cost-effective. Thanks to the HydroPad accessory, the heat exchanger remains dry, which has a positive impact on the service life. Adiabatic pre-cooling is achieved by wetting the pad, making water treatment unnecessary. There is no recirculation, and the unit's operation is hygienic. The heat exchanger and the evaporative equipment are separated from one another so that the system does not fall within the scope of relevant national regulations.

 

State-of-the-art control

In addition to the specially developed controls for the pre-cooling systems, also Motor Management Systems for the fans are available: The comprehensive solutions provide functions that are not only adapted specifically for refrigeration and air-conditioning applications but can also be integrated quickly and easily into the BMS. And the optional Master Panel as central communication interface even allows to group several units with different technologies together and to centrally connect them to the BMS.

Carrier Equips the First Blue Angel Ecolabel Supermarket in Germany

 

MARBURG-CAPPEL, Germany, Oct. 6, 2015Carrier Commercial Refrigeration Europe’s CO2OLtec® integral refrigeration system and energy efficient remote cabinets have helped tegut… supermarket in Marburg-Cappel, Germany become the first supermarket to receive a Blue Angel ecolabel for environmental responsibility. Carrier, which operates in Germany as Carrier Kältetechnik Deutschland GmbH, is the world’s leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, and is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

The environmentally sustainable CO2OLtec® system helps improve the store’s energy efficiency and reduce its carbon footprint by using the natural refrigerant carbon dioxide (CO2), which has a Global Warming Potential of one.

Since 1978, the Blue Angel ecolabel has been awarded to more than 12.000 environmentally sustainable products and services from approximately 1.500 companies in Germany. The designation helps consumers make purchasing decisions based on a set of exacting environmental standards. The Blue Angel ecolabel designates that a product or service meets high standards when it comes to its environmental, health and performance characteristics.

In order to receive this highly regarded environmental label, tegut… had to fulfill numerous criteria including refrigerated display cabinets with glass doors, photovoltaics on the roof, use of natural refrigerants and LED lighting, leaflets made of recycled paper and on-site facilities for bicycles. Carrier was tegut…’s first choice for sustainable, energy efficient refrigeration equipment.

“The energy consumption of this flagship store was reduced by 30 percent compared to conventional, older stores,” said Detlev Müller, head of facility and energy management, tegut….  “With refrigeration being one of the largest energy consumers in a supermarket, for us it was only natural to partner with Carrier to achieve the best and most sustainable result.”

With Carrier’s CO2OLtec integral system, tegut… has chosen to install a sustainable technology using CO2 for refrigeration as well as for heating of the store. All of the wasted heat created during the refrigeration process is collected and redistributed for heating via the CO2OLheat® module. This integration of refrigeration and heating enables significant levels of energy efficiency, cutting energy costs by 35 percent while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by more than 50 percent. Refrigerated display cabinets with features such as glass doors, LED lighting and dual speed EC fans provide additional energy savings.

“We are proud to contribute to tegut…’s Blue Angel ecolabel designation with the installation of our innovative integrated CO2 refrigeration system and refrigerated display cabinets,” said Udo Laeis, general manager, Carrier Commercial Refrigeration, Germany.

Güntner GmbH & Co.KG

Güntner Chillventa preview

 

By launching the campaign "Chillax. – Rules may change. Safety stays the same.", the Güntner Group takes up the uncertainty prevailing in the market regarding the increasing demands in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry and demonstrates what a competent and reliable partner can do beyond purely technical aspects. Sustainability is the dominant topic that extends from the refrigerant issue to legal provisions on consumer protection such as legionella prevention, and to other legal requirements at national and international levels. The carefully developed products offer the customers durable quality that complies with the rules of the future already today. This way, Güntner’s customers can look ahead with confidence – whatever may happen.

 

Everything's possible – with the V-SHAPE Vario

The V-SHAPE Vario boasts a high power density. Be it as condenser, gas cooler or fluid cooler, and regardless of whether the desired refrigerant is HFC, NH3, CO2, propane or a water/glycol mixture, the V-SHAPE Vario offers everything – plus an extensive range of accessories. In addition to the HydroSpray pre-cooling system, also the HydroPad pre-cooling system is an available option for this product family. And, on top of this, we offer state-of-the-art controls for an energy-efficient motor management and the pre-cooling systems. And the AxiTop diffuser as standard accessory reduces the sound pressure level.

 

Structured diversity of air coolers – the CUBIC Vario

With its wide range of casing models and material combinations, different fin spacings and optimized tube and fin geometries for refrigerants ranging from HFC, NH3, CO2 and propane to fluids, the CUBIC Vario is suited for virtually every application. Fully in line with the Vario principle, the CUBIC Vario air coolers offer an extensive range of accessories, from repair switches to hot gas defrosting. 

 

Powerful and smart – the Güntner V-SHAPE Compact

The V-SHAPE Compact condenser and dry cooler product family offers maximum performance on a small footprint even when operated in dry mode and is ideal for commercial refrigeration applications. The HydroPad humidification pad for adiabatic pre-cooling enables refrigerating plants to be operated more efficiently, thereby saving money – without necessitating water treatment, labour-intensive maintenance work and wetting of the coil. The Güntner Hydro Management GHM pad determines continuously whether applying water or increasing the fan speed will be more cost-effective.

 

Well controlled means money saved – with the GMMnext

The new GMMnext is a Motor Management System of the latest generation for EC fans – for high-performance connection to the BMS. The controller is prepared for modern Industrial Ethernet protocols, and a new, intuitive concept makes its operation even simpler. And, compared with the previous GMM EC, the GMMnext has a display that has become three times larger. With customer benefits ranging from operational reliability to real time data analysis and to economic operation, there is nothing left to be desired.

 

Condensation pipe behind the scenes – the DUAL Compact

With the option of the integrated condensation water pump in the new DUAL Compact, the condensation pipe can be installed out of sight in the intermediate ceiling. The benefit for customers: This saves more time when cleaning, provides more comfort for employees and more transport safety. And, of course, the units are hygiene-certified according to HACCP. What's more, the new tray design allows for hinging the outer tray on both sides. For more flexibility during servicing.

 

Powerful, with small footprint – the ADC High Density from JAEGGI

At high external temperatures or high plant loads/high fluid temperatures, the new hybrid dry cooler ADC HD is your natural choice. Thanks to the HydroPad humidification pads, the heat exchangers remain dry, and it is possible to cool the fluid down to below the ambient temperature. Control panels, pumps and pads are integrated and wired in a compact cube – this plug-and-play system provides maximum power density on a remarkably small footprint. The new ADC HD rounds off the capacity ranging from the ADC to the HTK.

 

Millions of types, always unique– the FLAT Vario

With the modular type diversity of the FLAT Vario, Güntner is setting a new standard for the selection of condensers and fluid coolers. From millions of types, the tried-and-tested Güntner Product Configurator (GPC) configures an individual unit in line with the requirements of the customer. The process is fast and reliable and is based precisely on the application. With pinpoint accuracy. The FLAT Vario offers a large number of types in the model range with diverse material combinations, a wide capacity range, availability for all common fluids, an operating pressure of up to 120 bar as a standard for CO2 applications, and operational reliability and leak containment thanks to the well-proven Güntner floating coil principle.
