AquaForce® Variable Speed Air-Cooled Screw Chiller.

AquaForce® Variable Speed Air-Cooled Screw Chiller

With R-134a Refrigerant

140 to 500 Nominal Tons

The Carrier® AquaForce® 30XV air-cooled variable-speed screw chiller was developed to ensure the best performance and efficiency in a solution that’s easy to install, easy to service, highly reliable and quiet. The 30XV delivers with industry leading efficiency (IPLV Ratings greater than 21.0 available in certain models) and sound.  The smaller footprint 30XV can replace just about all older equipment going back two generations. The 30XV can be customized to fit most building needs, anywhere.

Now Available with Waterside Economizer

The addition of a waterside economizer allows the chiller to use an auxiliary source of chilled water rather than the compressor and mechanical coils, which can optimize performance and reduce down time due to environmental challenges such as cold weather.

Air-cooled chillers within the scope of the ACCL certification program are certified in accordance with the AHRI Air-Cooled Water-Chilling Packages Certification Program, which is based on AHRI Standard 550/590 (I-P) and AHRI Standard 551/591 (SI). Certified units may be found in the AHRI Directory at
