Trane®, a leading global provider of indoor comfort systems and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, showcased its next generation technology at the ACREX India 2017, which was held from February 23-25, 2017 in Greater Noida.
At the Trane booth, ACREX participants experienced a product showcase like Trane® air-cooled and water-cooled chillers, variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems and Trane Air-FiTM wireless technology. All the products are designed with careful considerations of safety, efficiency, acoustic, reliability as well as the overall sustainability and lifecycle environmental impact.
Commenting on Trane’s presence at the ACREX India 2017, Sanjeev Seth, Country Leader HVAC and Transport - India and SAARC Markets, Asia Pacific, Ingersoll Rand said, “As a global leader in HVAC systems, we adopt a balanced approach, and develop products for customers to make choices on when and how they transition to solutions with next generation, low global warming (GWP) refrigerants and high efficiency operations.”
“High performance buildings need high performance HVAC systems. Trane products and Trane Care offerings are focused on high efficiency and sustainability to create a positive impact for our customers,” added Sanjeev.
The products showcased at ACREX 2017 are innovative, customer focused and benefited a gamut of industries including commercial real estate, healthcare, hospitality, industrial and infrastructure. Some of the key technologies and products showcased were:
- Screw technology: Trane VFD air-cooled Screw Chiller, Sintesis™, provides an excellent product efficiency (both full-load and part-load) resulting in a lower total cost of ownership. Available in five efficiency versions and in three acoustic packages, the Sintesis™ range can achieve the lowest noise rating on market at exceptional Class A efficiency, certified by Eurovent. The Sintesis chiller is part of the Ingersoll Rand EcoWise™ portfolio: As part of our climate commitment to increase energy efficiency and reduce the greenhouse gas emission, EcoWise products are designed to lower environmental impact with next-gen low-GWP refrigerants and high-efficiency operation.
- Centrifugal low pressure technology: Trane Series E™ Centrifugal machines offering an extended capacity range above 1,300 TR up to 4,000 TR (50 Hz) with next-generation low GWP refrigerant HFO-1233zd (E) and high-efficiency operation. Building on the CenTraVac legacy, the Series E delivers the same industry leading reliability and highest efficiencies that customers expect from Trane chillers. Trane has consistently invested in chillers with low pressure technology. Trane chillers using current refrigerant, R-123 are about 13 per cent more energy efficient than the next best chiller available in the market. Trane Refrigerant Availability Guarantee (TRAG) offers customers an additional security of the refrigerant R123 for the life of the chiller. In the future, Trane can also provide an engineered conversion for R123 chiller for those customers who wish to operate on the next-generation low-GWP refrigerant.
- Controls product range: With Trane Air-Fi™ wireless technology, building managers can bring maximum flexibility to their building automation system. Wireless technology from Trane replaces the wired communication link needed for the building controls system and easily integrates multiple building system devices, allowing building owners to reconfigure spaces as technology and building needs evolve. Trane Air-Fi wireless communication is a reliable and flexible solution that negates all issues associated with wired components in building controls system. With Air-Fi™ wireless, our customers are assured an efficient performance and cost savings over the life of the equipment.
- Unitary commercial products: This segment includes AMS III-mini VRF, Genyue-Full Inverter series with AHU Kit, ducted splits. The full inverter series – Genyue has wide range of options on the indoor compatibility with IPLV up to 6.9*. The on-demand output ensures high efficiency and energy saving. With the advanced DC inverter technology, the output current is smooth 180° sine wave curve making the compressor running smooth, quiet, and efficient. These machines are capable of working in high temperature Indian ambient conditions.
- Unitary residential AC space: HW4 & HW3 Hi-Wall Split series are the latest offerings in unitary residential category. HW4 is the interactive series with Zigbee technology that aids in two- way communication between the unit and the remote without “Point and Shoot”, multiunit connectivity for better convenience and performance for the customer. With the new age digital and technology convergence, Trane is also offering “Web Connectivity” in this product range. Through a “Gateway” the units can be connected with the mobile apps and thus control the units remotely with next level “User- Experience”.
