60 to 800 Ton Central Chiller

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 Central Chiller Features

  • 60 to 800 ton (water cooled and remote condenser models available)
  • Powerful PLC System maintains stable and reliable operation of the chiller
  • C-CUL, 508A listed and labeled industrial control panel
  • Rotary Circuit Breakers for each compressor
  • Turbocor Centrifugal Compressor Design

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.
  • 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.
  • Internal capacitors and rotational energy allow the motor to become a generator and provide a fail-safe shutdown.
