New compressor products are entering the market from Danfoss Turbocor. What markets will they be available in?

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Danfoss Turbocor Compressors Inc. (DTC) announced a significant expansion of its products and services. The latest expansion of Danfoss Turbocor’s line of oil-free, magnetic bearing variable speed centrifugal compressors includes the following three products.

• Launch of the TT350 380-volt compressor, specifically targeted for fast growing markets such as China, India, Russia and Brazil.

• A 575V version of the TT400 compressor for the Canadian market. In 2012, the 380V version of the TT400 compressor was recognized with an Honorable Mention in the cooling category of the prestigious AHR Expo Innovation Awards.

• The commercialization of TG310 compressors, which were released as a developmental prototype in early 2012. The compressors utilize the ultra-low global warming potential (GWP), zero ozone depletion potential refrigerant HFO-1234ze, trade-named Solstice™ L13 by Honeywell.

“In 2012, we were very pleased to make available prototype TG310 compressors suitable for outdoor, air-cooled applications. One year later, Danfoss Turbocor is excited to announce that several of our OEM customers are progressing with field trials and are very pleased with the performance of the TG310 regarding energy efficiency and reliability,” said Doug Bishop, vice president of sales and marketing. “The end-user interest in the TG310 compressor with this ultra-low GWP refrigerant is very high, and we are now finishing the code compliance work in support of a commercial production launch to Danfoss Turbocor OEM customers by mid-year 2013.”

DTC also plans to expand product repair and support in 2013 by opening regional service centers in both China and Europe. These aftermarket support facilities will house spare parts stock, remanufactured compressors and accessories, and will help to improve order responsiveness in these important markets.
