Energy efficient TCA chiller
This graph shows the difference between the energy consumption of a free-cooling chiller versus a non-free-cooling variant. When the TCA is operating in free-cooling mode, only the speed-regulated fans are consuming energy.
The compressors, the main energy consumers for a chiller are either off or working in a partial load mode. The graph’s blue zone shows the direct benefit form using the free-cooling principle.
A = Kw/h, B = Degrees C, 1 = Chiller, 2 = Free-cooling, 3 = Free-cooling savings zone
A = Electricity
B = Purchase cost
C = 39% Free cooling savings
Our engineering team has many years of experience in designing and calculating complex energy saving equipment.
Based on estimations and prepared for different climatic zones, we can state with confidence that the benefits of using an integrated free-cooling TCA55-215 chiller can bring you up to 40% savings of total power consumption for a 5-year life-cycle cost.
High ambient temperatures affect the performance of the chiller. In this case, the use of adiabatic panels to decrease the temperature of the air inlet on coils is a perfect solution. It enables to gain a boost of 10-15% in dry ambient conditions.
The adiabatic system is placed on the two sides of the unit to help the unit’s condensation, only during warm periods of the year, by spraying cold water on adiabatic panels placed on the fan’s air suction to reduce the air temperature.
The adiabatic system is run by a patented control philosophy with the aim to reduce water and energy consumption as much as possible without any temperature set-point deviation.
