Air-cooled chiller plant

Trane has released the newest EarthWise system.

01/12/2012


The ice-enhanced, air-cooled chiller plant—the latest EarthWise system from Trane—allows building owners, mechanical system designers, and operators to take advantage of less expensive off-peak energy by making ice during those periods, which will be stored and used for cooling during expensive peak periods. The system offers lower operating, water, and lifecycle costs than conventional cooling systems. Trane developed this thermal storage solution in collaboration with CALMAC. While the system itself is not new, this solution provides a pre-designed package that streamlines the process of creating and deploying a cooling system that’s ideally suited for reducing operating costs and supporting the Smart Grid. Standard system configurations include details like customizable control logic, dashboards, wiring diagrams, and supporting drawings that are ready to use.
