Independent tests by award-wining consultant prove exceptional performance of Turbomiser chiller

Independent tests carried out by a leading UK consultancy have proven the exceptional energy performance of the Turbomiser chiller.

Mike Creamer of award-winning consultant Business Edge Ltd carried out the tests on an operating Turbomiser chiller at Geoclima’s factory in Italy last month. He used a ClimaCheck Performance Analyser to run detailed analyses of the 700kW machine’s performance at various conditions.

It showed exceptional COPs of up to 15.5 at typical mid-season conditions, with average performance of between 5 to 7. Overall, compressor isentropic efficiency was over 77 per cent.

Commenting on the findings, Mike Creamer said: “These are excellent results, and appear to confirm positive claims being made for the Turbomiser technology. I would say that the Turbocor compressor represents perhaps the best single item of engineering, involving the combination of several technologies, that I have seen in the last 50 years.”

“The key is the use of almost frictionless magnetic bearings, highly flexible inverter control to match output to load, and a well-designed economiser to further boost efficiency. The overall package delivers exceptional performance, that can save end users substantial sums in ongoing running costs.”

He added: “Moreover, Geoclima have produced a range of superb and well-considered designs that feature excellent condenser coil construction, a flooded evaporator with liquid level control, economiser circuits and a dedicated control system that integrates well with the Turbocor compressor’s Electronic Management System”

The findings confirm reports from recent projects on the frugal nature of the technology. A recent Turbomiser installation at The Dorchester, on London’s Park Lane, is saving the hotel £10,000 a month in energy costs, according to the end user.

The latest version of the chiller, Turbomiser II, was recently launched following a two-year development programme by pioneering Italian manufacturer Geoclima and UK companies Cool-Therm and Klima-Therm.

It builds on the success of the first generation Turbomiser, which itself set a new standard for efficiency, and takes performance into new territory. It can achieve EERs of 10 and above without the need for additional free-cooling circuits and associated glycol, which can prove expensive and is not favoured in many applications. This saves both on initial cost and ongoing pump energy.

As a result, the Turbomiser II can reduce end users’ power bills by between 30 and 50 per cent - while at the same time dramatically cutting carbon emissions. On some applications, the saving can cut pay-back time to less than a year.

A leading UK leisure company is installing the first Turbomiser II in the UK at its headquarters in London. The installation will provide cooling for computer servers and comfort cooling for office staff, required as a result of expansion in the company’s online business.

The chiller is available in capacities from 250kW to 1.5MW. Energy savings will be realised in any installation compared to traditional chillers, since the higher efficiencies are evident across the output range; but Turbomiser II is especially suitable for data centres, large retail developments and buildings that have a constant base load. Hospitals and hotels, with their need for all-year-round cooling, are also excellent applications.
