Dec. 23, 2013: Star Refrigeration Launches Energy Efficient HFO Chiller

Star Teamed with Danfoss Turbocor and Honeywell in Developing the New Chiller

LONDON — Star Refrigeration has announced a new addition to its air-cooled Indigochiller line using the HFO refrigerant R-1234ze, which has a low global warming potential (GWP) of 6. The company said this is a highly energy efficient, low-noise chiller solution for HVAC and process cooling.

Star teamed with Danfoss Turbocor and Honeywell in developing the new range of Indigochiller at its design and manufacturing facilities in Glasgow, Scotland.

A year of factory and field testing followed to verify performance, and Star said analysis of the data collected has confirmed that the HFO chiller delivers increased efficiency and lower total cost of ownership (TCO).

The Indigochiller range has a unique method of construction designed to minimize the risk of refrigerant leakage and provide an operating life of 20+ years, said the company.

The system includes welded steel pipes, bellows, seal valves, and epoxy coated condenser fins as standard, ensuring high build quality and leak tightness.

“This development is part of our long-term customer care strategy. It allows us to give our customers confidence that we can help them transition to low GWP refrigerants moving forward, and at the same time reduce operating costs,” said Dr. Robert Lamb, Star’s group sales and marketing director.
