Next generation eco-friendly recirculating chillers

27-05-2020 | Laird | Subs & Systems

Laird Thermal Systems now offers its next generation of eco-friendly recirculating chillers for exact temperature control of medical, analytical and industrial equipment. The Nextreme Recirculating Chiller platform provides high-quality components, environmentally-friendly refrigerants, low-noise components and a user-friendly operator interface at a regular price. The new chiller uses high-performance variable speed motors for noise reduction, lower room heat input and decreased energy consumption by up to 50% when compared to conventional compressor-based systems.

The platform is created with a semi-open coolant system which allows several advantages including reduced bacterial growth and evaporation while still being simple to maintain. The chiller employs high-quality components that reduce downtime and offers sensor instrumentation that gives system status and the capability to combine predictive maintenance/failure analysis. By employing environmentally-friendly R513A refrigerant, it produces similar performance with less than half the GWP when compared to traditional HFC refrigerants.

"The Nextreme Chiller line is designed for OEMs, laboratories and research universities that need an energy-efficient chiller versatile enough to support the cooling needs of their entire equipment installation," said Greg Ducharme, product director at Laird Thermal Systems. "Laboratory technicians, R&D engineers and equipment operators will appreciate the quiet, maintenance-free operation of the system, knowing it also has a lower environmental impact due to its refrigerant type and reduced energy consumption."

The platform cools well below ambient temperature and provides temperature stability of ±0.1C of the assigned temperature. The series is offered with three standard cooling capacities including 1800W, 2800W and 5000W models.
