The AquaForce 30XV air-cooled, variable-speed screw chiller was developed to ensure performance and efficiency in a solution that’s easy to install and service, highly reliable and quiet. The 30XV delivers with industry leading efficiency (IPLV Ratings greater than 21.0 available in certain models) and low sound.
The smaller footprint 30XV can replace most legacy equipment going back two generations. Designed for tomorrow and fit for today, the 30XV can be customized for nearly any building requirement regardless of location.
With value-added features such as fully air-cooled variable-frequency drives for next generation sub-systems including rotary-screw compressors and quiet AeroAcoustic® fan system, integrated with either microchannel or any other type of condenser coils, the 30XV is designed to be versatile, robust and efficient. Its user-friendly control with color touchscreen display is self-optimizing, enabling the 30XV to run at optimum performance at any set of conditions.
The 30XV chiller is ideally suited for office buildings, schools, data centers, hotels and hospitals and any other applications where a quieter operation, high efficiency and flexible footprint are essential.
