TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Danfoss Turbocor Compressors Inc. has announced the introduction of its new TG310 compressor, which uses the ultra-low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant HFO-1234ze(E).

The TG310 compressor is available for air-cooled, outdoor-mounted chiller applications and will carry the CE mark and CE PED mark. It is suitable for use with 400 volt, 50 hertz power supplies. Similar to the current TT series compressors, the TG310 models are oil-free, variable-speed, magnetic bearing centrifugal compressors. According to the company, the units provide excellent full and part load energy efficiency and feature a small footprint, light weight, low vibration, very low sound, intelligent controls, and soft starting characteristics.

HFO-1234ze(E) refrigerant was developed and commercialized by Honeywell, and is trade named Solstice™ L13. While the refrigerant was initially assigned a GWP value of 6, Honeywell recently announced that the GWP value is actually less than 1. The refrigerant exhibits improved energy efficiency compared to the current model using HFC-134a.

“The TG310 is a highly energy efficient and environmentally progressive compressor, and represents the innovation our customers expect from the pioneer and world leader of oil-free, centrifugal compressors for the HVAC industry,” said Doug Bishop, Danfoss Turbocor vice president of marketing and communications. “We look forward to the rapid adoption of the technology as customers seek to enhance the sustainability of their HVAC systems.”
