York, Pennsylvania, United States, 7 May 2018: Düsseldorf, Germany-based OEM GEA has announced that its GEA Blu low-charge ammonia chillers, which were previously only sold in Europe, are now available in the United States, through a Press communiqué.

Lawrence Bradley, Director of Solution Sales – refrigeration, GEA North America, said, GEA has sold “nearly 300 units of the modular Blu-Astrum chiller in Europe (primarily with glycol) since its launch in 2012.” He further said its modular design accommodates “substitution of HFC chillers.” He added this chiller uses a screw compressor, offers capacities from 156 to 492 TR and an ammonia charge range from 110 to 242 lbs, while the Blu-Genium chiller uses a reciprocating compressor and delivers capacities from 85 to 341 TR.

According to GEA, the Blu line has a temperature range from five degrees F (-15 degrees C) to 60 degrees F (15.55 degrees C) and both chillers have high ESEER efficiency, as well as compact dimensions and low noise levels.
