Lightstream Turbo chiller range extended with high-efficient models

The popular Turbocor based chiller family by Kaltra has been extended with high-efficient models with extra condenser banks which enable lower condensing temperatures, 15% higher energy efficiency rates (EER) compared to standard Lightstream Turbo models and reduced noise emission level.

With its new H-series machines, Kaltra offers the following models with its Lightstream Turbo chiller family:
- Environment-friendly air-cooled units (300kW to 1600kW)
- Freecooling chillers (450kW to 1350kW)
- New high-efficient H-series lineup

All chillers can be charged with either R134a or low-GWP, ozone-friendly R1234ze refrigerant.

With Turbocor compressors, microchannel condenser coils and flooded evaporators, Lightstream Turbo shows the excellent energy efficiency at any load level and is dynamically responsive to cooling demands with EER of up to 4.30.

The new condensers used in Lightstream Turbo chillers is a perfect example which demonstrates all the advantages of the new microchannel heat exchangers used in its design: with the same coil face size and 25% greater capacity, condensing temperature adjusted downward by 4K, and the end result is fairly higher efficiency of compressors

H-series Lightstream Turbo chillers offer the cooling capacities from 300kW to 1150kW using 1 to 3 Turbocor oil-free compressors with economizer option. H-series chillers can operate under high ambient temperature conditions of up to +50°C producing chilled water with temperatures of up to +20°C.

Lower condenser load leads to reduced fan speeds and thus to lower noise emission, enabling new Lightstream Turbo to be used in noise-sensitive environments such as inner cities, hospitals, etc.

The new range designed for year-round mission-critical service.

Due to its excellent efficiency at part-load conditions, Lighstream Turbo chiller family is a brilliant economy solution for applications where the heat load is not constant or expected to grow.

Kaltra is a provider of innovative cooling technologies and advanced cooling products for mission-critical applications, such as data centers, cleanrooms, contaminant-free areas, processing plants, and other facilities where the reliability and energy efficiency are key factors. Kaltra’s cooling equipment range includes precision cooling systems, air-cooled and water-cooled chillers, evaporative cooling solutions, dry coolers, and condensers.
