Carrier AquaForce 30XVVariable-speed chiller

The AquaForce 30XV air-cooled variable-speed chiller was developed to ensure performance and efficiency that meet the cooling needs of tomorrow's buildings, in a design that's ready for action today. By using a tiered approach, the 30XV can be customized to fit almost any building need, anywhere. With value-adding features, such as variable-speed rotary screw compressors, quiet AeroAcoustic fan system with variable frequency drives, and microchannel condenser coil technology, this machine is made for versatility, robustness, and efficiency. User-friendly control with color touchscreen display incorporating self-optimizing control enables the 30XV to run at optimum performance at any given set of conditions.

Johnson Controls YORK YVFAAir-cooled screw chiller

The YORK YVFA free-cooling, air-cooled screw chiller combines variable-speed drive (VSD) screw compressors with integrated waterside economizer "free cooling" into a simple-to-operate package that is AHRI-certified. YVFA is available in nominal sizes from 150 to 450, delivering more than 2,110 kW at higher liquid temperatures. With intelligent controls, the free-cooling coils reduce the mechanical cooling load at a much higher ambient temperature, allowing the VSD compressors to reduce speed and energy use more hours of the year. YVFA combines control strategies with mechanical advances to further enhance performance at all conditions. Mechanical improvements include variable volume ratio compressors and VSDs for both the compressors and fans.
