PUNE, India, January 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ —
Johnson Controls has extended the capacity range of its award-winning YORK® YZ Magnetic Bearing Centrifugal Chiller to include chillers beyond 1,000 tons (3,516 kW), now up to 1,350 tons (4747 kW) of refrigeration. The technology used in the newly launched next generation chillers requires 80 percent fewer moving parts than traditional oil or refrigerant-lubricated drivelines. The result is enhanced reliability, reduced maintenance and improved efficiency.
“In 2018, the YZ chiller set a new bar for efficiency, sustainability and energy savings,” said Shrikant Bapat, General Manager, Building Technologies and Solutions, Johnson Controls India. “Expanding the capacity of the YZ demonstrates our continued commitment to delighting our customers at every turn and never resting on our past achievements.”
The YORK® YZ chiller uses an optimized single stage design to provide industry-leading, real-world energy efficiency. The chiller’s system simplicity, high reliability, lower maintenance and wide operating map are all thanks to the advanced lubrication-free magnetic bearings that can handle any operating condition, and now this technology is available at even higher capacities.
The extended capacity AHRI-certified YORK® YZ Chiller uses an integral, variable speed drive and advanced magnetic bearing technology that features a single moving assembly suspended in a magnetic field that does not require lubrication.
In early 2018, the YORK® YZ Chiller, the first chiller fully optimized for ultimate performance with a next generation low-global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant-R-1233zd(E), was launched with a capacity range of 165 to 1,000 tons (580 to 3516 kW).
