Eliwell is returning to Chillventa to introduce the latest and increasingly efficient, sustainable and connected HVACR solutions, and to launch a preview of the innovative solutions that will be taking centre stage in 2023.

Secure Interface, the connected HVAC from Field to Cloud

Having connected machines and devices available is now also a must-have in the HVAC sector. For this reason, Eliwell has developed Secure Interface, an extremely compact Linux embedded PC (72 x 110 x 60 mm) to enable IoT connectivity efficiently, intuitively and competitively, allowing communication with connected devices, whether they are our own or from a third party.

Secure Interface can connect to any device fitted with a Modbus bus over RS485, collect data from them and convey it to the Cloud, where specific applications analyse the data and enable predictive maintenance. As it is a programmable unit, it is very easy to develop any Modbus driver in order to communicate with every type of compatible device.

Secure Interface

DOMINO ZERO, now more compact, flexible, and easier to use in conjunction with third-party valves

The latest upgrades to the DOMINO ZERO solution – for electronically controlling a refrigeration system running on either natural (CO2) or synthetic refrigerants – have made it more compact, open to the use of third-party valves, scalable due to its modularity, and capable of offering more stable control.

EWCM is the DOMINO ZERO component used for rack control. Recently improvements have been made to this controller, which is now capable of working with a number of third-party valves, giving the manufacturer the utmost freedom of choice.

Plus, the space occupied by the new EVEVD drivers for EWCM 9000 PRO-HF and by the two backup modules has been halved, with a 50% space saving in the electrical panel solely in terms of the drivers, leading to a solution which overall is 35% more compact than the products currently available on the market.

Epta will present its most recent new entries, expressed by the claim: “Innovation For Efficiency, We Know How. The Epta System”. A concept which encloses all the innovation, efficiency and technical skill of the Group in designing high-performing refrigeration systems.

The new entries are numerous, and the following stand out:

  • EptaService diagnostic tools. The new SwitchON Pack is a diagnostic platform for the packs. This system enables remote performance analysis and optimisation and intervenes to prevent any malfunctions. In case of fault, it suggests specific intervention procedures. Moreover, Chillventa 2022 will be the perfect opportunity to observe LineON technology up close. It is a digital solution for Epta’s plug-ins for the Food&Bev., Ho.Re.Ca. and Retail sector that monitors numerous parameters as temperature and humidity, 24/7. Two more advantages offered by LineOn are the fact that it provides sales information and geolocalises the commercial display refrigerators.

Hall 6, Stand 312

Frascold will present its latest innovations.  

Among the new products launched at Chillventa 2022 are the ATEX Z40-126 high-temperature piston compressors, designed for heat pumps in the industrial sector. An ATEX-certified, isopentane solution that, when combined with renewable sources, is able to guarantee maximum safety and sustainability. Among its special features, the 6 cylinders allow for a condensation temperature of about 160°C to be reached and pressurised water up to 100/155°C to be produced. The compressor can be used in cascade, or using waste heat to feed the entire system, in favour of greater efficiency and circularity of resources.

During the exhibition, the two series of screw compressors CX ATEX and Magnetic will be presented, which provide a higher delivery rate and, consequently, a higher thermal capacity production.

Frascold compressors

CX ATEX models, in addition to completing the offer for industrial installations, are also ideal for district heating. The range is reliable, efficient and silent and it is also available with R290 and R600a hydrocarbons. What contributes to its excellent performance are two different Vi (compression ratio) and the possibility of extending the operating range by choosing a larger electric motor. Finally, it features step-by-step or continuous capacity control, guaranteed by a slide valve and by a sophisticated triple-action oil separation system that minimises oil carry-over. 

The Magnetic models, on the other hand, include a range of screw products recommended by Frascold for the comfort segment, for cooling processes and for applications with heat pumps. The main element of the compressor is the exclusive IPM (Interior Permanent Magnet) synchronous motor, consisting of magnets in the electric rotor that eliminate slipping and ensure accurate speed monitoring. Another advantage of the IPM is the reduction in power consumption, compared to traditional solutions, in favour of greater energy savings. In a nutshell, reliability, flexibility and simplicity contribute to define the MAG family.

This year, at Chillventa 2022, Unilab will present 3 new software tools aiming at helping HVAC & R manufacturers daily work.

Heat Pumps Simulation software (air conditioning & domestic hot water applications)

After selecting the desired Capacity of the Heat Pump, the software helps the user by guiding him in selecting the right component model. EcoDesign calculation is included, along with the possibility of exporting Excel capacity tables.

Low Temp - High Temp Calculation

Calculate two COILS in series on the air side (with air flowing through both) and in parallel on the fluid side (fed singly, e.g., with one coil fed with water and another with a mixture of water and glycol). By giving the inlet and airflow conditions, our software allows to take the temperature coming out of the first LT coil, making it become the inlet temperature in the HT.  

Freecooling + Condenser

HEATING COIL + CONDENSING COIL: simulate two coils in series, made of a Heating Coil + Condenser, as generally seen in air water chiller applications. If external air temperature on coil is sufficiently lower (say 5° C), with water entering at 20°C, the cool air makes the water cool down at 15°C, which in turn goes to the evaporator. So we use cool air to cool down the water.

COOLING COIL + CONDENSING COIL: Simulate two coils in series, made of a Cooling Coil + Condenser. In this case, the purpose is reaching lower condensing Temperature.

Coils Suite New Modules
