When it comes to efficiency and sustainability, Carrier is a company of “firsts.” The AquaEdge 23XRV chiller from Carrier is the world’s first integrated, variable speed, water-cooled screw chiller. It incorporates significant breakthroughs in water-cooled chiller technology to provide excellent reliability and achieve superior efficiencies at true operating conditions. And because it uses non-ozone-depleting HFC-134a refrigerant, the AquaEdge 23XRV system accomplishes it all without compromising our natural environment.
The AquaEdge 23XRV’s non-ozone-depleting HFC-134a refrigerant is a chlorine-free solution that provides a safe and environmentally sound product while still providing high efficiency. HFC-134a was given an A1 safety rating by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), meaning that it is the safest refrigerant available. The decision to use HFC-134a provides customers with a long-term solution unaffected by refrigerant phase-outs.
The variable speed chiller maximizes efficiency by optimizing compressor operation. Electric power consumption drops dramatically when the motor speed slows, helping the AquaEdge 23XRV deliver industry-leading integrated part-load values in an extremely broad range of applications and climates. The quality design and construction make the AquaEdge 23XRV the best choice for modern, efficient chilled water plants – just one more example of Carrier’s position as a natural leader.
