Hampshire-based engineering company Aqua Cooling has enhanced its well-earned reputation for state-of-the-art innovation by unveiling newly-designed technology that improves the energy efficiency of industrial process chillers.
The multi award-winning firm has just launched a ground-breaking, first-in-class range of ENR process chillers – powered by the latest in inverter-driven compressor technology that reduces the need for refrigeration while delivering the required temperature.
Simon Davis, Sales Director at Aqua Cooling, said: “Our ENR range offers the first process chillers to have a variable speed compressor with a permanent magnet. Consequently, they are able to achieve more precise temperatures than a standard on/off compressor-driven process chiller while operating at a more energy-efficient, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly level.”
Inverter-driven compressors are able to operate at part load with high efficiency, a capacity that allows ENR chillers to maintain a consistent temperature compared with standard compressor-driven chillers which, in contrast, require a much larger amount of energy to start up and shut down and have only one speed of operation: maximum power.
Simon Davis believes Aqua’s new flexible and adaptable technology has a bright future: “We are proud to have the in-house talent to be able to produce these technologically-advanced systems in anticipation of our clients’ needs."
“The ENR range of scroll compressor chiller units has great potential to benefit a wide-range range of industry sectors, from plastics and printing to pharmaceuticals for example" he added.
The ENR chiller range is not the only ingenious invention to have its origins in the Aqua Cooling stable: in 2015 the firm won a coveted Queen’s Award for Enterprise (Innovation) for its patented LPS leak prevention technology that not only detects and warns of holes and cracks in chiller units but actively prevents damaging water seepage until the faults in the system can be repaired or malfunctioning pipework replaced
