The TurboChill FreeCool chiller has scooped first place in the ACR-News Air Conditioning Product of the Year Award.
Summing up the mood at Airedale International Air Conditioning, managing director Clive Parkman has said: Everyone at Airedale is over the moon. This is an exciting product and is believed to be a world-first in applying two advanced, high efficiency technologies - oil-free Turbocor compressors and concurrent free-cooling. It is a fantastic accolade and a vindication of our success in breaking new ground in reducing energy consumption and environmental impact.
The TurboChill FreeCool Chiller also positioned Airedale as a nominated finalist for Environmental Product of the Year.
More and more end users are looking for increasingly efficient air conditioning products, with decreased running costs and increased reliability. That is exactly what the TurboChill FreeCool Chiller gives them; the ultimate in energy efficient chiller solutions, with free-cooling for up to 98% of the year in the raised temperatures of a data centre environment (cumulative hours, London, UK); and energy savings of more than 55% compared with a similar sized screw chiller.
Being in the unique position of having more than five years experience developing turbocor compressor chillers, and a knowledge of concurrent free-cooling that spans over 10 years, Airedale has been ideally placed to harness both turbocor compressor technology and concurrent free-cooling in the same system. In doing so, it is considered to be the first in the world not just to apply the two technologies in the same chiller, but to design the system so the two technologies work together, making the chiller even more efficient than any other free-cooling chiller.
