New TG310 compressor combining low GWP with high efficiency
Danfoss Turbocor highlighted the release of the TG310 compressor, which utilizes the ultra-low Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerant HFO -1234ze(E).
The TG310 compressor is now available for packaged water chiller applications and has the CE PED compliance. It is suitable for use with 400 volt, 50 Hz power supplies. Similar to the current TT series compressors, the TG310 models are oil-free, variable-speed, magnetic bearing centrifugal compressors. The products provide outstanding full and part load energy efficiency and feature a small footprint, light weight, low vibration, very low sound, intelligent controls, and soft starting characteristics.
The ultra-low Global Warming Potential (GWP <1), zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) refrigerant HFO-1234ze(E) was developed and commercialized by Honeywell, and is trade named Solstice®ze. The refrigerant exhibits improved energy efficiency compared to the current model using HFC-134a. When combined with the extraordinary environmental metrics for GWP and ODP, the TG310 offers customers a new benchmark in overall operational sustainability.
During the show Danfoss gave a 30min seminar to present the technical and environmental advantages of the TG310. There was a strong interest in the new technology from both customers and competitors incl. a short question and answer session with additional contributions from Honeywell.
“The TG310 is a highly energy efficient and environmentally progressive compressor, and represents the innovation our customers expect from the pioneer and world leader of oil-free, centrifugal compressors for the HVAC industry,” said David Williamson, Danfoss Turbocor Managing Director Europe. “We look forward to the rapid adoption of the technology as customers seek to enhance the sustainability of their HVAC systems.”
