The EPA’s phaseout of R22, coupled with questions over the long term viability of hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) replacement gases, is leading to increased interest in natural refrigerant solutions.
The Azanechiller range of packaged ammonia chillers has been developed to meet the needs of environmentally conscious end users in a wide range of markets. Suitable for cooling both water and glycol, Azanechiller is ideal for applications in food processing, temperature controlled storage, building services, process cooling and ice rinks.
The Azanechiller uses ammonia refrigerant. Ammonia has zero ozone depletion potential and zero global warming potential and, unlike HFC alternatives, will not be subject to future legislation. Azanechiller offers exceptional efficiencies across a wide range of operating conditions. The Azanechiller is now available to the US market for the first time.
Caleb Nelson, VP - Business Development, explains: "The Azanechiller typically offers a 20% increase in performance compared with standard HFC chillers. Its packaged design and careful component selection results in a very low refrigerant charge with all of the ammonia contained within the chiller and outside the production facility or warehouse. This means that the total refrigerant charge of the chiller can be as little as 1 lb/TR."
As a complete refrigeration package, Azanechiller is very easy to install. The Azanechiller is a true ‘plug and play’ industrial refrigeration package. This cuts down site installation and commissioning time, while also avoiding the need for a machinery room.
Caleb adds: "Azanechiller is ideally suited for retrofit projects where customers typically have limited space for new equipment and need to keep project costs to a minimum. The packaged design also offers customers the flexibility to relocate the chiller to meet their ever-changing cooling requirements."
Azanechiller features high quality, industrial components to offer unrivalled performance, reliability and low maintenance. Each unit includes two screw compressors, low noise, premium efficiency drive motors, and Azane’s own design of low charge suction separator.
Azanechiller is available as an air-cooled or water-cooled unit with cooling capacities ranging from 10TR to 300TR. Air-cooled Azanechillers feature high efficiency EC condenser fan technology. Water-cooled Azanechillers include a welded plate heat exchanger condenser to minimize refrigerant charge.
Both chillers incorporate a custom PLC control system as standard and include floating head pressure control and floating suction pressure control, which optimizes efficiency at part load conditions and low ambient temperatures.
The Azanechilleris also the only chiller on the market to offer COP monitoring, allowing at-a-glance performance checks at any time.
Azane Inc specializes in the manufacture of low charge, high efficiency ammonia packages. Azane’s range of products have been designed to provide a futureproof option for the environmentally conscious. All Azane packages are made in the USA.
