Danfoss was recognized with the AHR Expo’s 2018 Product of the Year award for its Danfoss Turbocor TTH/TGH high-lift compressors. The award ceremony was held on Jan. 23 during the 2018 AHR Expo in Chicago.
A panel of third-party ASHRAE member judges selected the annual Product of the Year from the year’s 10 AHR Expo Innovation Award winners. Winners in the Innovation Awards program are selected based on innovative design, creativity, application, value and market impact. Danfoss Turbocor TTH/TGH high-lift compressors had previously been named as a 2018 Innovation Award winner in the Green Building category.
Designed to give chiller manufacturers a new high-efficiency, oil-free compressor option for air-cooled chiller, heat recovery, and water-to-water heat pump applications, the Danfoss Turbocor TTH/TGH high-lift compressors feature the oil-free, variable-speed, magnetic-bearing operation of other Danfoss Turbocor compressors, but with an expanded operating map suitable for such high-lift applications.
The 2018 Product of the Year Award is the sixth time Danfoss has been recognized in the Expo’s Innovation Awards program for Danfoss Turbocor compressors; the company was also recognized with the Product of the Year award in 2015 for its Danfoss Turbocor VTT compressor series. Overall, Danfoss has been recognized 28 times over 16 years of the award program.
“It is a tremendous honor to have been recognized once again by the HVACR industry for our commitment to advancing energy efficiency through innovative engineering,” said Ricardo Schneider, president of Danfoss Turbocor Compressors. “This award is evidence of the progress Danfoss — with the help of our customers and partners — is making as we seek to redefine expectations for efficiency and help the industry prepare to meet future challenges, regulations and standards around the world.”
