A Highly Efficient System
The chiller is designed with additional features that significantly increase the overall energy efficiency of the system, helping to reduce the company’s carbon footprint. Each Danfoss Turbocor™ compressor is up to 50 percent more efficient than constant speed compressors in the same size range. Additionally, the monitoring can take place on-site or remotely via a web-enabled diagnostics system.
All ArcticCool chillers leverage the Danfoss MCX adaptive logic controller. This compressor-specific controller was developed by Danfoss to properly operate the Danfoss Turbocor™ compressors at maximum efficiency and reliability within its envelope and to avoid operating conditions that impact the system’s productivity. The overall system is controlled by ArcticCool’s ArcticJACE, which features a hardware-based Tridium™ platform which controls the compressors, chilled water pumps, cooling tower fans, bypass valves, and system resets.
“This was one of the most efficient systems I’ve been involved in creating,” says Millander. “Our top priority was to provide a system that would save time and money and the team at ArcticCool was very skilled in leveraging their experience with the Danfoss Turbocor™ products. Together we developed a truly exceptional system that specifically fits the customer´s needs.”
Successful Installation and OperationMillander recalls that the installation of the 1,400 ton chiller was a success. The compact size of the chiller unit had a ½ inch of clearance on all sides – a near perfect fit. Additionally, within a week of installation, the chiller unit was functioning flawlessly, helping to save more energy and lowering operating costs. Millander says that the ArcticCool/Danfoss Turbocor™ chiller continues to perform at optimal efficiency, operating at an average of up to 0.4 kilowatts per ton, providing significant operating cost savings. Because it uses the oil-free ArcticCool and Danfoss Turbocor™ technologies, the company’s carbon footprint is also significantly reduced. The single unit offers reliable performance and required minimal installation, servicing and maintenance.
“Our client is so pleased with the solution we delivered that he decided to buy two additional 1,400 Ton chiller from ArcticCool with Danfoss Turbocor™ compressors to be installed at the same chiller plant”, commented Millander. “We’re pretty sure these three 1,400 Ton chillers are the largest chillers in the U.S. that is trusted for critical duty applications.”The two additional 1,400 Ton ArcticCool chillers with Danfoss Turbocor™ compressors shipped in December of 2014 and will be installed beginning of 2015 in San Diego, California.
