LINDAU, Germany, 21 January 2020: ENGIE Refrigeration on January 20 launched the redesigned air-cooled PENSUM AIR series for the international market, the company said through a Press release. The chiller offers especially high efficiency in medium performance ranges and is ideally suited for use in mid-sized office buildings and public institutions, the company claimed, adding that the equipment is a future-proof investment, as it meets the future requirements of the F-gas Regulation 2030 and the Tier 2 Ecodesign Directive.
According to the release, the overhauled series has a performance range between 50 and 400 kilowatts. This range is because the redesigned series uses the refrigerant R-454B, which has a low GWP value of 466, which falls below the average GWP of < 500, the value that the F-gas Regulation stipulates from 2030. Due to its good consumption values, the company said, the PENSUM AIR also already meets the requirements of the Ecodesign Directive for Tier 2, which will come into force on 1 January 2021. In addition, the company said, the chiller has an innovative design and a revised configuration. The PENSUM AIR, the company claimed, now has a new compressor, for example, which makes the chiller even more efficient than its predecessor; its efficiency is particularly high under partial loads.
