ENGIE Refrigeration’s SPECTRUM Water will be part of the product portfolio as a heat pump as well as a chiller.
Thanks to its broad temperature range from +65 degrees Celsius to -10 degrees Celsius, the new oil-free model is suitable for many different areas and applications.
The redesigned SPECTRUM Water series is available now as a-water heat pump for condenser leaving water temperatures of up to +65 degrees Celsius, and then, in the second half of 2022, as a water-cooled chiller for brine applications down to -10 degrees Celsius.
ENGIE Refrigeration CEO, Jochen Hornung, said it is the company’s mission to provide customers with future proof investments.
“For us, this means developing products that meet tough requirements in terms of economy, efficiency and sustainability,” he said.
“We have achieved our goal once again in exemplary fashion with the SPECTRUM Water; if the compressor is powered with green electricity from renewable energy, the machine can be operated in carbon-neutral fashion.
“This way, we contribute to the decarbonisation of heat generation and promote the transition to climate neutrality.”
The SPECTRUM Water series will be available as a heat pump and as a chiller, each version featuring twelve basic models, and with a performance range between 340 and 3,100 kilowatts of rated heating power (as a heat pump), or between 200 and 1,200 kilowatts of rated refrigeration power (as a chiller).
All versions are based on the technology of the QUANTUM Water from ENGIE Refrigeration, which is currently the most efficient water-cooled chiller on the international market.
As a result, the SPECTRUM Water features highly condensing, oil-free turbo compressors with magnetic bearing, flooded shell and tube condensers and an open-flash economizer integrated as standard. It also contains high-quality technology components made in Germany, such as the intelligent Siemens S7 PLC, and can be operated via a 10-inch touch panel or via any mobile end device with the help of smart control.
The oil-free machine design makes the system unique in the market for large heat pumps, which is currently still very heterogeneous.
