Trane Sintesis Air-Cooled Chillers Now Available

June 25, 2015
Sintesis chillers use either R-134a or DuPont Opteon XP10 (R-513A), a low-global-warming-potential refrigerant.

Trane’s Sintesis family of air-cooled chillers is now available for order in Europe, the Middle East, and North and Latin America.

Part of the Ingersoll Rand EcoWise portfolio of products, Sintesis chillers use either R-134a or DuPont Opteon XP10 (R-513A), a low-global-warming-potential refrigerant. Also, the chillers:

  • Achieve industry-leading energy-efficiency ratio (EER) and European seasonal energy-efficiency ratio (ESEER).

  • Use up to 40 percent less refrigerant than traditional tube/fin and flooded heat-exchanger technology because of a micro-channel condenser coil and a compact, high-performance, integrated, low-charge evaporator.

  • Feature factory-installed acoustic treatments for consistent, quiet operation. A user-selectable noise-reduction mode also is available to help comply with nighttime and weekend neighborhood noise restrictions.

Integrated Tracer AdaptiView chiller controls feature a 7-in. color touchscreen display for at-a-glance status and intuitive navigation for simplified operation.

Proven control strategies such as integrated temperature and flow logic respond to a wide variety of conditions and maintain reliable, efficient chiller operation. Adaptive control keeps the chiller working efficiently in extreme conditions—even under a building-automation-system failure—for continued reliable operation. The control setup of Sintesis chillers offers a unique ice-storage feature for cooling during peak demand.

In Europe and the Middle East, Sintesis chillers are available in sizes of 245 to 450 (cooling capacities from 300 to 1,600 kW). The chillers reach 1.6 MW of cooling capacity at Eurovent-rated points and supplement the original 090 to 205 sizes introduced by Trane in 2014.

In North and Latin America, 115- to 215-ton models are available and will be followed by 230- to 500-ton models in late 2015.
