Winner of 'Energy Saving Product of the Year' at the CIBSE Building Performance Awards 2015, the TurboChill™ is the first BSI approved range of high performance turbo chillers using the low GWP refrigerant R1234ze available from a British manufacturer.

The TurboChill™ delivers an industry-leading energy efficient cooling solution with capacity to deliver up to twice as much free-cooling as equivalent thermosiphon products. The addition of low GWP hydro-fluoro olefin (HFO) refrigerant R1234ze makes the TurboChill™ a highly sustainable option, which automatically receives two BREEAM points in recognition of its low global warming impact.

R1234ze readily breaks down in the atmosphere within a very short lifetime (16.4 days) and is rated by the International Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) with a 100-year GWP lower than 1, which performs better than CO2.

An air-cooled, single/dual circuit R134a/R1234ze high capacity chiller unit designed around revolutionary centrifugal Turbocor compressors integrated with cutting edge components. Brilliantly engineered, using Airedale’s vast expertise in cooling technology, the TurboChill™ minimises environmental impact by lifting efficiency to new heights and pushing down sound levels.

The intelligent, self-optimising compressors present near silent, oil-free operation and ultra-efficient, variable speed control. This allows TurboChill™ to match load requirements exactly and enables selection of the optimum model, in terms of efficiency, sound level, footprint and price, for each individual application.

Offering exceptional ESEER value, the TurboChill™ offers increased flexibility and choice with more than 230 models available to choose from. 76 of these models have been specifically developed for use with the low Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerant R1234ze, whilst 110 TurboChill™ models from the range combine the latest compressor technology with the power-saving benefits of free-cooling.

TurboChill™ matches load requirements exactly and enables selection of the optimum model, in terms of efficiency, sound level, footprint and price, for each individual application.


TurboChill™ FreeCool – ultimate efficiency

For the ultimate in energy efficient chiller solutions, the new TurboChill™ FreeCool combines the unparalleled efficiency of centrifugal Turbocor compressor technology, with the power saving benefits of free-cooling. The oil-free operation of the revolutionary Turbocor compressor allows infinitely variable speed operation giving exact capacity match and using substantially less power at part load.


Energy optimisation - ESEER 6.23

The TurboChill™ FreeCool achieves 1-100% free-cooling, year round. During any mechanical cooling, the excellent part load efficiencies of the TurboChill™ FreeCool ensure an ESEER* of up to 6.23.

*ESEER (European Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) is based on the part load efficiency of TurboChill over the course of a year and is a better indicator of real energy draw and running costs.

Class A EER up to 4.35 and ESEER* up to 6.23

  • Centrifugal compressor - 25-100% variable speed control for tighter setpoint management and substantial energy savings at part load
  • Flooded evaporator - enhanced optimum heat exchange and system efficiency give 15% energy savings in compressor operation particularly at part load
  • Microchannel heat exchanger - high surface area provides increased heat transfer and lower airside drop giving lower fan powers; the slim, light profile reduces weight / space claim
  • Modular V-frame - vastly improves heat exchange, resulting in better performance and control particularly at part load; also facilitates easier maintenance
  • In-built low current start (2A)
  • Oil-free operation enhances heat exchanger efficiency
  • Up to two Turbocor compressors across a single circuit for reduced energy consumption at part load
  • Intelligent compressor management by network-capable AireTronix controls
  • Large surface area condenser coils with latest fan technology
  • EC fans and interactive head pressure setpoint management give increased performance for reduced power input
  • Chiller Sequence Manager (option)
  • Automatic rescheduling of chilled water setpoint
  • Flooded evaporator improves part load efficiencies
  • Economiser circuit provides increased cooling and enhances EER in full and part load operation
