These VRF units feature DC, inverter-driven compressors for precise temperature control. They are available in up to 3,280 feet (1,000 meters) of total piping length and include up to 36 indoor connections, which make them easy to install, network, and maintain.
The VTC series compressor and electronic controller dynamically matches the capacity of the compressor to the cabinet’s cooling demand. The series features a capacity range from 300 to 1,500 Btu per hour, and is optimized for use with eco-friendly hydrocarbon (HC) refrigerant R-290 (propane).
New ice rinks generally use ammonia as a refrigerant, but R-22 was the choice for many years, and the ice making systems in older rinks can contain several thousand pounds of R-22. In the approaching cold, hard reality of a post-R-22 world, how will rinks keep their ice cold and hard?
This mobile app is used for Vilter™ Select software, an online tool that allows users to determine capacities of all Vilter reciprocating and screw compressor lines. The mobile app is an extension of the technician-focused selection software, providing in-the-field analysis capabilities necessary to select the most efficient compressor.
Bob and Tim are on a service call on a really cold and blustery day. The temperature is 27°F, the wind is blowing, and it’s snowing and sleeting. When the customer called, she said that their home is getting cool inside, and their heat pump is running all the time with the temperature dropping inside the house. They arrived at the front door, talked to the homeowner, and decided to look around. They went to the closet where the indoor unit for the heat pump was located and determined that the heat pump itself was not running, only the fan and strip heat.
