Green cooling
With environmental-friendly R1234ze refrigerant

Refrigerants with low global warming potential (GWP) are becoming more and more important
in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry in Europe and beyond.

R1234ze features low GWP of one and zero ozone depletion potential, thus providing the
environmental leadership while achieving the best energy performance levels for applications.

The design of the Powerstream Turbo evaporators provides optimum system efficiency at both full and partial load operation. Powerstream Turbo features newly developed shell-and-tube condensers optimized for HFC and HFO refrigerants to provide the best efficiency. With high-perfor-
mance tubes, new baffle design and shell, these condensers provide maximum efficiency with a low cost per kW, as well as shorter lenght and reduced weight
The tubes in flooded evaporator are fully immersed in liquid refrigerant and enable a smaller approach temperature between the refrigerant temperature in its shell compared with competing solutions. Water flow within condenser is optimized to reduce the fouling and erosion risks.
and chilled water temperature in the tubes to be achieved when compared to other types of evaporators. With flooded evaporator, the compressors operate at higher
saturated evaporation temperature and generate more cooling capacity with the same power input. Standard are 2 pass condensers, 4 pass condensers available as an option.

The control software of Powerstream Turbo chiller maintains the level of refrigerant which is adequate for chilled water tubes to be constantly immersed in it, thus
utilizing the full potential of the flooded evaporator even at part load conditions.

Dry cooler selection
• MCHE/RTPF HEAT EXCHANGER SELECTION
• EVAPORATIVE PRE-COOLING OPTION
• OPTIMIZED FOR WATER-COOLED CHILLERS
• LOW SOUND EMISSION

We recommend using Bora or Mistral series dry coolers with Powerstream chillers. These dry
coolers are optimized for water-cooled chillers, offer high performance and enable low water
temperature difference.

Bora series is well-suited for urban locations due to their low sound emission, as well as for
high-polluted areas and coastal installation due to the high corrosion resistance of microchan-
nel heat exchangers used in the unit design. For the installations in hot climate zones, we
recommend Bora dry coolers with evaporative pads.

Mistral series dry coolers equipped with finned tube heat exchangers with internally grooved
copper tubes and are ideal for any kind of industrial and commercial applications.

Both dry cooler series feature low operating costs and superb efficiency.
