Thermal Care is at the leading edge of process cooling technology. TC Series Centrifugal Central Chillers use revolutionary, frictionless, magnetic bearing Turbocor compressors to deliver optimum chiller performance and part load efficiencies. This translates into the quietest, most reliable, and most energy efficient chillers ever built. Models are available with either single or completely independent dual refrigeration circuits. 

TC Series Chillers come standard with Dynamic Lift technology to continuously calculate the lowest allowable refrigerant pressure for any combination of operating conditions for maximize chiller energy savings and more stable and smooth control of refrigerant pressure, especially under varying load and condenser inlet temperatures.

TC Series Central Chiller Features

  • Water cooled and remote condenser models available
  • Powerful PLC System maintains stable and reliable operation of the chiller
  • Stainless stee brazed plate evaporators for efficiency and corrrosion resistance
  • Energy-effficient, variable speed drive, Turbocor centrifugal compressor reduces operating costs vs conventional fixed-speed compressor technologies
  • C-UL 508A listed and labeled industrial control panel
  • Rotary circuit breakers for each compressor
  • Single point connection for electrical hookup at control cabinet

Only one major moving part - the compressor impeller which is used to compress gas and provides the highest full load efficiency. In addition, the Turbocor centrifugal compressor design operates at compression ratios as low as 1.2 (discharge pressure/suction pressure) compared to 1.8 or higher for other types of compressors. Lower compression ratios means less energy use.

Integrated Variable Speed Drive Motor Control

  • Enhances temperature control capability for partial load performance.
  • Soft-start control reduces peak energy demand and extends motor life by lowering initial current inrush at start-up
  • Lowest noise level; whisper quiet sound levels with 71 dBA (per compressor) and virtually no structure-born vibration

Oil-Free Operation

  • Eliminates oil management system and all related maintenance costs
  • No potential oil contamination of refrigerant
  • No compressor failure due to oil contamination
  • Lower energy required can save up to 40% in annual operating costs when compared to screw-type compressors

Integrated Computer Control

Magnetic “Friction-Free” Bearings

  • Equipment life is extended since there is no contact with surfaces as the shaft rotates.
  • Compressor senses a power failure as a normal shutdown.
  • The compressor shaft rests on a graphite-lined touchdown bearing when not in operation
