Efficiency Advantage - Compressor Design

  • Single stage compressor design
  • Optimized impeller designs
  • High efficiency, refrigerant cooled motors
  • Free standing Variable Frequency Drive
  • Frictionless compressor bearings minimize efficiency Loss
  • Easily meeting BEE 5–Star Rating : ISEER 9.87 to 10.0
  • IPLV @ AHRI conditions < 0.30 IkW/TR
  • Capable of operating at a high lift conditions, such as high condensing or low leaving chilled water

Efficiency Advantage - Oil Free Design

  • Over a period of time, oil in chillers with lubricated compressors tends to carry over to the heat exchangers and coat the heat exchanger tubes and reduce heat transfer, resulting in a deterioration in chiller efficiency.
  • An ASHRAE determined the quantity of oil as a percentage of refrigerant in older chillers and found the average to be 12.88%. The study determined that even 3.5% of oil equated to an 8% efficiency loss.
  • Thus, oil free compressors stand to benefit to a large extent due to the absence of oil

Starting Current Advantage:

  • Starting Amps - 2 Ampere as against 200 ~500 A of conventional chillers
  • There is gradual increase in the voltage until the DC bus reaches the up trip voltage
  • Combination of soft start function and variable speed drive combined, limits inrush current at Start up

Starting Current Advantage:

  • Starting Amps - 2 Ampere as against 200 ~500 A of conventional chillers
  • There is gradual increase in the voltage until the DC bus reaches the up trip voltage
  • Combination of soft start function and variable speed drive combined, limits inrush current at Start up

Speed Advantage:

  • High speed allowing for size and weight reduction

  • 5-Star  BEE Rating

Kirloskar TURBOLEV® series of chillers uses the principle of magnetic levitation on application of an electric field, adapted to suit the chiller application.

Magnetic levitation, already a proven technology in aerospace, oil and gas exploration and transportation applications, is combined with variable-speed centrifugal compression and supported by digital electronics to run the compressor without any contact between the rotating dynamic and static parts and allows the compressor to operate in a frictionless environment so as achieve the highest efficiencies.

Centrifugal compression offers substantially higher isentropic efficiency compared with other compressor designs. Used most effectively in a centrifugal compressor, a variable-speed drive further enhances part load efficiency. The combination of this technology with magnetic levitation results in a machine with an unparalleled bouquet of benefits - extremely quiet operation very high efficiency without the need of lubrication which is so essential in conventional compressors.

A Participating Company in the AHRI 550-590 Certification Programs

Kirloskar Chillers Private Limited way back in 2004, became FIRST chiller manufacturer in India to have its range of water cooled centrifugal and screw water chillers certified by AHRI under the AHRI 550/590 certification program. This authenticates Kirloskar Chillers' claim of chillers designed and manufactured to global standards. Kirloskar Chillers has a continuous commitment to supply chillers that perform as specified.

On-going performance verification of chiller capacity and power input provides the owner with specified performance in accordance with the AHRI Standard 550/590-2013. Further, In 2008, KCPL also became the first company in India to have it's chiller test bed certified by AHRI.
