Carrier AquaEdge and AquaForce chillers available with lower GWP solutions
Water-cooled centrifugal chillers, water-cooled screw chillers and air-cooled screw chillers are compatible.
Carrier has announced that its AquaEdge 19XR water-cooled centrifugal chillers, 23XR water-cooled screw chillers and AquaForce 30XV/XA air-cooled screw chillers are compatible with both R-134a as well as lower global warming potential (GWP) option
“Our customers rely on Carrier for quality, reliability and predictability and they will be pleased to know our AquaEdge 19XR and 23XR water-cooled chillers along with our AquaForce 30XV/XA air-cooled chillers are able to transition smoothly from R-134a to lower GWP R-513A at the same time we pursue the development of other low global warming refrigerant alternatives,” said Chris Opie, director, North America Commercial Marketing in a media release.
“We believe R-134a will continue to provide the best combination of availability, cost, performance and safety for many years to come. The ability to convert our R-134a centrifugal chillers to lower GWP R-513A provides owners and facility managers even greater options that ensure the full useful life of this chiller,” Opie added.
