Danfoss Recognized For Industry-Leading Technology


BALTIMORE — Danfoss has been recognized by a panel of ASHRAE members with a 2015 AHR Expo Innovation Award, green building category, for its Turbocor VTT series of oil-free, variable speed, magnetic bearing centrifugal compressors.

The company also received an Honorable Mention in the cooling category for its new ETS Colibri electronic expansion valve. Together, this marks the 17th and 18th time Danfoss has been recognized in the AHR Expo Innovation Awards program over the course of 12 years. 

"We are honored to receive the 2015 AHR Innovation Award," said John Galyen, president, Danfoss North America. "Innovation is rooted deep in our culture. For more than 80 years, Danfoss has been focused on engineering innovative, reliable technologies that reduce energy use and environmental impact – and, today, we remain committed to product development and partnerships that enable our customers to meet the challenges and standards of tomorrow."

As the green building category winner, Danfoss Turbocor VTT series of compressors introduces IntraFlow, a patent-pending technology that improves efficiency and provides an extended stable operating range while simplifying capacity control. IntraFlow eliminates the need for inlet guide vanes or mechanical variable geometry diffusers, allowing VTT compressors to offer both superior full-load and part-load performance and enabling chiller manufacturers to achieve the latest efficiency standards. 

Intended for water-cooled chillers and with capacities of 350 tons per compressor, Turbocor VTT – or Variable Twin Turbo – compressors are ideal for commercial air-conditioning or process cooling chillers reaching up to 1,000 tons or more.

Recognized as an Honorable Mention in the Cooling category, the new ETS Colibri electronic expansion valves enable precise evaporator flow control for increased energy efficiency and reliable compressor operation, and are ideal for variable speed air-conditioning and lower-GWP refrigerant systems.
