Water-cooled chiller

The Optimus helical rotary water-cooled chiller uses an Adaptive Frequency Drive (AFD) to adjust motor speed for precise temperature control.

07/14/2014


Trane's Optimus helical rotary water-cooled chiller is now available with the Trane Adaptive Frequency Drive (AFD). The AFD adjusts motor speed based on demand to reduce energy consumption and energy costs. The Optimus chillers have cooling capacities ranging from 150 to 430 tons, making them useful for most buildings, including high-occupancy schools, hospitals, and hotels. Trane's Tracer controls allow building owners to regulate system performance for increased efficiency and reduced energy consumption. The Optimus chiller can control water temperature variance within 0.5 F. This enables the Optimus chillers to manage industrial or low-temperature process cooling and humidity in critical applications.
