Chiller manufacturers are facing a Jan. 1, 2024, implementation date to phase out the use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) R-134a, R-410A, and R-407C in new liquid chillers, despite Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute’s (AHRI’s) efforts to change the proposed effective date to Jan. 1, 2025.

Starting in 2024, the three HFC refrigerants will be deemed “unacceptable” in new liquid chillers under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program.

 

AHRI and the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) requested the EPA consider the 2025 effective date to ensure the safety of alternatives, the continued improvement of system efficiency, reasonable product development timelines, and the avoidance of market migration. The EPA, however, declined to extend the date.

Application

  • NYB is the first modular chiller with integrated free-cooling coils that meets AHRI standards and New York City codes.

Innovation, Value, and Market Impact

  • Its micro-channel condenser coils provide 40 percent lower charge of R410A refrigerant with zero ODP level.
     
  • Every module goes though a functionality and performance test at Aermec's certified test chamber before leaving the factory. Factory witnesses are available upon request.

  • The NYB is the most compact integrated free-cooling chiller in North America and easily fits through doors and into elevators.

  • Extensive acoustical testing has allowed sound level reductions through compressor enclosures and specifically designed low noise, inverter driver fans.

  • Also, the Night Mode program offers significant noise reductions during crucial night hours.

All the Benefits of a Single Large Chiller

  • When interconnecting multiple NYB modules, you can obtain all the benefits of a single large chiller up to 255 tons, with 18 compressors, 18 refrigerant circuits and 9 free cooling circuits offering 5.5 percent cooling steps. The microprocessor optimizes these to achieve the desired temperatures while modulating partial load savings across the multiple cooling steps. Meanwhile, each single unit is still able to act independently.

  • The modular concept which provides added benefits of single unit functionality with high efficiency performance and has optional partial heat recovery when in mechanical cooling mode. The NYB will bring savings year around the Eco friendly design will add more value to the project. 

  • The NYB unit is changing the view on how the free cooling chillers are made. The fact that it meets the AHRI minimum standards for chillers is a major advancement in the integrated free cooling industry, which will motivate the manufacturers to even go further. Efficiency and environmental responsibility are becoming more of a concern in today’s world and the NYB is at the top of both of these categories.

    Who is your rep in the Alexandria VA area

The new ARI certified modular integrated free cooling chiller is making a big splash in North America. Recently certified we have orders for units in New York City, units in British Columbia and Ontario. We are working with engineers in Chicago, Edmonton, Montreal, Ottawa and many other locations for upcoming projects. The only truly integrate modular ARI rate free cooling chiller in the world.

A new feature of this unit is that if we have 9 units (or any number of modules) working together and one needs replaced for some reason the unit that needs replaced can be isolated, removed and a new unit installed while the 8 remaining units stay in full operation with no downtime.

 

Well done Aermec and HIGH Mark NY

b2ap3_thumbnail_chamber.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_Laboratorio.jpg

Representing a €5m investment, the new chamber allows units of up to 2.000kW cooling and heating capacities to be tested, and measures 28m in length by 6m in height for a total volume of 2.200m3.

The new test lab has already been accredited with Eurovent certification (up to 1.500kW, Eurovent's limit), acknowledging the precision levels achievable. In fact Aermec can guarantee a precision of +/- 0,2°C on the water side and +/- 0,3°C on the air side, with precision instruments, including 240 temperature sensors and 100 pressure transducers, allowing testing in conformance to EN 14511 norms.

This highly versatile test lab allows testing with ambient temperatures from -20°C to +55°C and relative humidities from 20%RH to 95%RH. Numerous 50Hz and 60Hz voltages are catered for, in line with Aermec's presence on all continents worldwide. Even noise testing, again with Eurovent certification and according to UNI EN ISO 9614, can be carried out.

Air and water-cooled Chillers and Heat Pumps, Air Handling Units, Indirect Evaporative Coolers and Dry Coolers can all be tested, with an added Data Hall simulator chamber allowing realistic testing of Data Centre applications. If desired the single lab can be transformed into two smaller labs for simultaneous independent testing.

In line with Aermec's environmental policy, absolute priority was afforded to minimal energy consumptions during operation, in fact the lab's unique heat recuperation plant ensures that most of the utilised energy can be reused within the process.

Aermec's new Eurovent certified test labs confirm its standing at the very forefront of large application solutions, and represent a notable investment towards Aermec's goal of ever more sophisticated and high quality large product offerings ensuring ever lower energy consumptions.

Particular attention has also been afforded to Customer witness testing, an ever increasing requirement for large projects. Then new test labs will feature a dedicated Customer witness room where all parameters can be instantly and graphically monitored and recorded, specific Customer requests can be quickly implemented and unit operation can be visualised from the comfort of your chair.

 

Aermec is fully convinced this new test chamber, which joins the tens of other specific chambers already present within its facilities in Bevilacqua (Italy), will allow the company to further consolidate its growing presence within large system solutions.
