Custom-made and efficient
Based in Fürstenfeldbruck near Munich, Germany, Güntner GmbH & Co. KG is a world leader in the manufacture of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment components. With approx. 3,000 employees worldwide and production sites in Germany, Hungary, Romania, Indonesia, Mexico, Brazil and Russia, the company shows a strong presence for their partners in all markets and offers a broad heat exchanger portfolio in different technologies ranging from coils to adiabatic or hybrid units. Customers especially appreciate the customized solutions. But the customized unit design is not Güntner’s only contribution to an energy-efficient plant operation: Güntner received an award for the development of the energy balance function controls strategy, controlling the condensation temperature via ambient temperature-dependent set point shifting as opposed to controlling via a fixed limit value for the condensation temperature. The energy savings produced by the energy balance function are based on reducing the speed of the condenser’s fan(s) while increasing the compressor power somewhat less. Within the cross-brand holding company Güntner Group Europe GmbH, the transfer of information and knowledge with the sister companies thermowave Gesellschaft für Wärmetechnik mbH, JAEGGI Hybridtechnologie AG, and basetec products + solutions GmbH and the resulting synergies provide critical development drivers not only for the Group but also for the market.
