Engie Refrigeration is planning a worldwide launch of its Spectrum Water range in March, 2022.
Spectrum Water will be available as a water/water heat pump for hot water temperatures of up to +68 degrees Celsius and as a water-cooled chiller for brine applications providing up to -10 degrees Celsius.
This will allow the refrigeration and heating specialist to reach new customers and areas of application, especially in the heating supply field.
As a heat pump, the new Spectrum Water is suitable not just for commercial and industrial heating applications, but also for integration into heat networks, district solutions and housing development concepts.
CEO of the German company, Jochen Hornung, said Spectrum is an ecologically sustainable alternative to boilers that run on fossil fuels.
“Our new Spectrum Water heat pump contributes to the decarbonisation of heat generation,” he said.
Spectrum features innovative technology components, oil-free compressors with magnetic bearings, flooded shell and tube condensers, an open-flash economizer integrated as standard, and an intelligent Siemens S7 PLC providing outstanding energy efficiency, operational reliability and power density.
The oil-free machine design guarantees stable performance and efficiency throughout the system’s service life, along with low maintenance requirements.
Digital features will be available to increase user-friendliness and serviceability, among them the option of using smart control to operate the machine from a mobile end device, and an integrated interface with the CoolCare remote maintenance software.
There will be 12 models in total. The Spectrum Water heat offers a heating capacity of 360 to 3,000 kilowatts for hot water temperatures up to +68 degrees Celsius.
The Spectrum Water chiller, also with 12 models, offers a refrigeration capacity between 200 and 1,200 kilowatts for refrigeration applications involving brine temperatures to -10 degrees Celsius.
The machine can run on the low-GWP refrigerant R-1234ze and the safety refrigerants R-515B, R-513A and R-134a.
