FÜRSTENFELDBRUCK, Germany, 5 April 2023: Güntner has redesigned and extended its V-shape VARIO series of condensers, fluid coolers and gas coolers, with the stated objective of bringing greater capacity and lower energy use. Making the announcement through a Press release, the company said the new series offers a unit for every application, whether it’s HVAC, IT server cooling, process cooling or industrial refrigeration.
According to Güntner, the series offers up to 2,600kW in dry operation. The company said it has achieved a 20% increase in capacity by adding fan sections – up to 2×12. The series is also customisable, with a wide range of coils, casing types and other accessories, the company said. The large variety of fans and speeds makes the new V-shape VARIO suitable for every sound and power requirement, Güntner claimed.
According to Güntner, the addition of its GMM controller and its proprietary hydroBLU technology can boost capacity even further. The company said its hydroBLU system has been completely redeveloped with a new pad thickness that increases the efficiency of adiabatic pre-cooling significantly. The wetting system has been revised, with all components easier to reach, making installation and maintenance easier, the company said.
The increase in capacity means that fewer units are required for large plants, minimising footprint, Güntner said. This reduces the customer’s installation effort, and the high-performance units offer more flexibility in configuration, it added.
Güntner said the new series includes the largest and highest-capacity V-shape unit in its portfolio, developed with lorry dimensions in mind. It utilises the bed of a maximum-size curtain-sider lorry down to the last centimetre, opening up new possibilities for maximum capacity in a single Güntner unit, the company said. This not only cuts down transportation and operational costs but also reduces carbon emissions, the company said, adding that the units are designed for easy loading and unloading with both forklift and crane.
According to Güntner, the V-shape VARIO series is available for all common refrigerants, including natural refrigerants, such as ammonia, propane and carbon dioxide. In June 2022, Güntner said it received the Natural Refrigerants Label from ATMOsphere, which represents the global gold standard for natural refrigerant systems and components.
“The V-shape VARIO series has been a mainstay of the market since 2010,” said Herbert Schupfer, Head of Future Solutions, Güntner. “To meet future demands, we decided to rethink the development of the product from the ground up. The new series optimises the cost-benefit ratio and has sustainability at its heart.”
