Carrier has announced the availability of a lower global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant in the AquaForce® 30HX water-cooled screw chiller.
The AquaForce 30HX will now come with refrigerant R-513A, which was chosen for its environmentally balanced impact, high energy efficiency, wide availability and ease of use.
The 30HX high-efficiency screw chiller comes in water-cooled and condenserless versions. It offers a quiet, low-vibration design that is compact enough to fit through a standard door, making them great replacement units.
Carrier is shifting to lower GWP refrigerants across its chiller offerings, with R-513A, R-515B and R-1234ze(E) in medium-pressure centrifugal and screw chillers; R-1233zd(E) in low-pressure centrifugal chillers; and R-32 in scroll chillers.
The use of lower GWP refrigerants supports Carrier’s 2030 Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) Goals, including helping customers avoid more than 1 gigaton of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
