Danfoss has been named a 2017 Award Finalist in the Energy & Sustainability category by the internationally-renowned Edison Awards for its new Turbocor VTT range of compressors. The distinguished awards, inspired by Thomas Edison’s persistence and inventiveness recognize innovation, creativity, and ingenuity in the global economy.

Intended for water-cooled chillers and with capacities of 350 tons per compressor, Danfoss Turbocor VTT (Variable Twin Turbo) compressors are oil-free, variable speed, magnetic bearing centrifugal compressors ideal for commercial air-conditioning or process cooling chillers reaching up to 1,000 tons or more. The Turbocor VTT series introduces IntraFlow, an innovative and patent-pending technology that improves efficiency and provides an extended stable operating range while simplifying capacity control. IntraFlow eliminates the need for inlet guide vanes or mechanical variable geometry diffusers, allowing VTT compressors to offer both superior full-load and part-load performance and enabling chiller manufacturers to achieve the latest efficiency standards.
The compressors also feature an exclusive new drive technology, which is the result of integrated R&D efforts blending Danfoss’ extensive expertise and capabilities in high-efficiency compressors and variable frequency drives for the HVACR industry. The VTT drive offers the superior reliability and performance that has come to be expected from Danfoss, in a small frame size made achievable only with refrigerant-controlled heat removal.
Because the compressors are oil free, end users experience lower maintenance costs associated with traditional systems that can suffer from repair chronic lubrication problems.
Danfoss Turbocor VTT compressors were previously named the 2015 AHR Expo Product of the Year. Danfoss was also awarded in 2015 the Innovative Star of Energy Efficiency by the Alliance to Save Energy for its innovative Turbocor technology.
