Geoclima was commissioned by Danfoss – the market leader of Power Solutions, Climate Solutions and Drives – to design a chiller for its headquarters in Kolding, Denmark. The project was aimed to install a new unit with the highest possible efficiency. The chiller had to be equipped with Danfoss controls and the innovative Danfoss Turbocor oil-free compressors. Moreover, Danfoss wanted to use the chiller as a showroom, so visitors could see another application of Danfoss products.
Geoclima 114 RT air-cooled Circlemiser chiller at the Danfoss headquarters in Kolding, Denmark.
To meet its requirements, Geoclima developed a 114 RT air-cooled Circlemiser with oil-free centrifugal compressor and cylindrical condensers. Circlemiser is an exclusive technology that is characterized by an innovative design allowing unparalleled performance and efficiency. The chiller is designed to use HFO-1234ze, the greenest refrigerant in the world, with GWP<1 (according to a 2015 IPCC study) and classified as A2L according to ASHRAE 34. The unit ensures a high level of efficiency (20.24 Btu/Wh).
Together with Danfoss, a series of extreme customizations have been developed making this project unique: the unit was painted the same color as the Danfoss brand; all the aesthetic details have been taken care of, such as the aluminium finish of the heat exchangers; the soundproofing boxes for the compressors are transparent, so the Turbocor compressors are visible; the chiller was built flipped, so that the compressor compartments are facing the building and thus are visible to customers.
Geoclima is an Italian company with more than 25 years of experience in the HVAC market, specialized in the design and production of non-standard chillers for applications in air conditioning and refrigeration systems. High-quality components, energy efficiency, low-GWP refrigerants and specifically designed technologies are key features of Geoclima’s production. In 2017, Geoclima opened a sales office in USA, based in Chicago. For more information, visit www.geoclima.com.
