Turbocor Chillers – market leading compressor technology makes these industrial air and water cooled chillers ultra-efficient. Able to achieve a COP rating as high as 8.5. Our range of Turbocor Chillers harness the very latest in compressor technology. Resulting in a product that is ultra efficient, highly reliable and capable of achieving co-efficient of performance (COP) as high as 8.5. Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) and European Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (ESEER) figures are also exceptionally high.

The units are available as both water and air-cooled variants, with capacities from 200kW to 4.2MW and 200kW to 1.6MW respectively. Both operate on R134a refrigerant. We can also offer Turbocor Chillers with Free Cooling and with Glycol free, Free Cooling. Turbocor Chiller units are renowned within the cooling industry. World-wide, for their innovative approach, resulting in High Integrated Part Load Value (IPLV) energy efficiencies and low lifetime operating costs.

At the heart of every Turbocor Chiller is an oil-free centrifugal compressor which utilises magnetic bearings and variable speed drive. This contrasts with traditional Chiller compressors which are oil lubricated. This completely oil free design achieves the highest part-load efficiencies for Chillers and chilled water systems. It also eliminates friction, mechanical wear and the need to maintain oil management systems. The units are low noise and low vibration.

Turbocor Chillers can reduce energy consumption by 35% when compared to conventional chiller designs. A lubricated Chiller can lose operating efficiency within the first few years of it’s life due to oil building up on the heat transfer surfaces – with a Turbocor Chiller this risk is negated.

Lower Ownership Costs

The Turbocor compressor design reduces maintenance costs over the lifetime of the cooling equipment. As well as achieving all the associated energy efficiency benefits. Because mechanical wear is so reduced, the reliability and life span of the units increase dramatically.

A high percentage of chiller problems are often down to failures with compressor oil return – something in the region of 80%. Because Turbocor Chillers don’t use oil, it’s easy to see how maintenance costs are less. Not only are you benefiting from a highly efficient piece of equipment, but it’s designed to cost less to maintain and will last longer!

Finance Solutions

Aqua Group have a range of Finance Solutions available on most temperature control units – Our lease purchase finance option is becoming increasingly popular with clients, especially those looking to protect their capital expenditure budget during economically uncertain times. It enables you to secure new temperature control equipment but without the hefty up-front investment that comes with outright purchase. With a lease agreement you pay a fixed monthly cost over an agreed time-period, after which you then own the equipment… Read More About Our Finance Options

Case Study

Packaging Cooling Solution For Food Industry Specialist

An innovative and highly efficient cooling system, supplied and installed by award-winning Hampshire engineers, is streamlining the production process for one of the UK’s leading food industry supplier at its manufacturing plant near Ely, Cambridgeshire. Aqua Group, an industrial cooling specialist engineering company with offices in Hampshire and York, designed the bespoke and future-proof chiller system for Anson Packaging Ltd, part of Danish-based multinational Faerch Plast Group, which manufactures food-to-go packaging.

Previously, Faerch Plast was using ammonia chiller technology at its sites worldwide, but when Aqua introduced the company to a bespoke system utilising state-of-the-art glycol-free free-cooling and magnetically-driven centrifugal compressor chillers, Aqua’s predicted efficiencies and the forecast benefits impressed Faerch Plast senior management, and Aqua was awarded the contract.

Aqua supplied to the Anson site two 700kW and two 800kW air-cooled, thermosyphon free-cooling Turbocor chiller units working on R134a refrigerant. The system design spreads the cooling load, ensuring that optimum cooling and ultra-high efficiency levels are achieved at all times. The compressors are most efficient when operated under part-load. Additionally, the system has full built-in redundancy: if there should ever be a malfunction, the process will maintain full cooling. The system also enables free cooling to be achieved in a higher ambient temperature than normal.
