ENGIE Refrigeration is currently redesigning the entire air-cooled QUANTUM series. New QUANTUM Air models will be available worldwide from 24 June 2019.
The refrigeration specialist from Lindau is responding to changing customer requirements: “The requirements for the refrigeration industry have changed in recent years. Our customers are placing increasing value on greater efficiency and performance in their chillers, for example. We are accommodating these changing conditions by redesigning our air-cooled QUANTUM series,” said Jochen Hornung, CEO of ENGIE Refrigeration. The new QUANTUM Air will be available worldwide from the end of July 2019.
On the launch date, ENGIE Refrigeration will offer 28 basic models of the QUANTUM Air. Fourteen of these models use the refrigerant R-1234ze, and fourteen models use the refrigerants R-134a and R-513A; all of them require lower quantities of refrigerant.
The revised chiller for users in a variety of industries – from automotive manufacturers and suppliers to the chemicals and pharmaceuticals industry, industrial production and data centres.
Customers will benefit from additional important advantages in future: ENGIE Refrigeration has combined the individual machine components in a new way, so that the QUANTUM Air surpasses even the exceedingly high efficiency of the current series. The chiller is also suitable for applications from 250 kilowatts to two megawatts; with this refrigeration capacity, the QUANTUM Air outperforms not only its predecessor, but also all air-cooled chillers from other manufacturers that are currently on the market.
With its Supersilent package, ENGIE Refrigeration also ensures that the QUANTUM Air is as quiet as a whisper – an essential aspect, especially for noise-sensitive applications in hospitals and office buildings, for example. ENGIE Refrigeration has also reduced the size and weight of the chiller by means of a special design, so it is easier to transport and install on site. This novel design also reduces delivery times and makes the machine easier to service.
Jochen Hornung is certain that ENGIE Refrigeration will meet current and future customer requirements perfectly with the newly designed air-cooled QUANTUM. “With our QUANTUM Air, we at ENGIE Refrigeration are living up to our aspiration, which is to offer the highest-quality, most efficient and most durable chillers. This gives us a pioneering role in the refrigeration industry.”
As its next step, ENGIE Refrigeration will overhaul its water-cooled QUANTUM chillers as well; the relevant models will become available on the international market over the course of 2020.
