Carrier’s AquaForce Vision 30KAV


arrier launched its AquaForce Vision 30KAV chiller into the UK recently. It is the fi rst phase of the new 30KAV range of variable-speed screw chillers, with Greenspeed intelligence, covering cooling capacities from

500kW up to 1100kW, achieving exceptional levels of seasonal effi ciency. The unit is equipped with variable-speed screw compressors and variable-

speed fans – alternating current (AC) as standard and electronically commutated (EC) as an option – as well as optional variable-speed pumps. Carrier’s AquaForce Vision 30KAV automatically adjusts the cooling capacity and water fl ow to perfectly match the needs of the building or process load variations. The result is optimal operation at both full load and part load. This new range of chillers has a SEER of up to 5.5 in cooling mode, and an Energy Effi ciency Ratio (EER) of up to 3.49 at full load. 30KAV off ers energy effi ciency up to 40% higher than the 30GX range with the same footprint. “Our engineers have developed state-of-the-art technologies to exceed the European Ecodesign energy performance standards by 30%,” said William Doll, product manager, Carrier, HVAC Europe. “AquaForce Vision 30KAV sets a new benchmark for effi ciency, compactness and intelligence.” Operating at external temperatures ranging from -20°C up to 55°C and

negative water temperatures, 30KAV is an ideal solution for a wide range of sectors. From large-scale offi ce buildings, hotels and healthcare facilities to data centres and industrial projects, 30KAV meets the most demanding expectations in terms of energy effi ciency and savings, whatever the climate. The AquaForce Vision 30KAV introduces the latest

cutting-edge Carrier technologies, including:

 the brand new 06Z variable-speed screw compressor  the sixth generation Flying Bird Fan with EC motor  the third generation Novation micro channel heat exchangers with a unique W coil design built in one single piece

The AquaForce Vision 30KAV also features Touch Pilot control with a colour touch screen user interface in 10 languages and functions, such as Carrier’s smart energy monitoring to provide customers with smart data and optimise energy savings under real conditions. Furthermore, the 30KAV can be connected to Carrier’s remote monitoring centres where Carrier engineers can analyse data and optimise chiller performance. With sound levels of only 90 dB(A) during operation, this new range has particularly low sound levels compared to its previous generation. The AquaForce Vision PUREtec 30KAV-ZE version, designed exclusively for ultra-low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant HFO R1234ze, will be available later this year. The range will also be extended up to 1800kW cooling capacity with premium

technologies and additional options. Presenting the range to leading UK consultants and contractors, Nancy

Jonsson, Carrier’s UK sales director, said: “We believe the new chiller is ideally suited to meet UK requirements, delivering outstanding energy effi ciency across the range. The coming introduction of an HFO version later this year adds a further exciting option for end users keen to future-proof their buildings and achieve the highest environmental standards.”
