Smardt’s water cooled chiller range – 200 kW through 4200 kW - is designed for a 30-year operating life, with lifetime operating costs the lowest in the market.
No oil, flooded shell-and-tube evaporation, low power consumption, low maintenance costs (even lower with remote monitoring) and high reliability with only one main moving part.
Smardt and PowerPax work hard to achieve simplicity of design and operation – reflected in low operating costs, and supported by the integration of PowerPax electronic expansion valves and the optional use of load balancing valves at very low loads.
Field reliability since 2002’s introduction has been outstanding – not surprising when you consider that some 80% of all chiller problems in the field are due to failures in compressor oil return. And these Smardt chillers use no oil.
The growing fraternity of Turbocor-trained engineers and technicians suggests that total maintenance costs for oil-free chillers run at well under half the costs of traditional lubricated chillers. This assessment may be very conservative.
Integration through LON, BACnet or MODBUS with building management systems is standard, as is connectivity with most industry-standard protocols.
Custom design and production capacity
High-efficiency direct expansion condensing units, heat recovery and free cooling applications can all be supplied competitively, as can special materials for use in aggressive environments.
Marine water boxes, corrosion protection and other options are available and can be explored on request.
Smardt's standard 120 TR - 180 TR water-cooled chillers deliver an IPLV of .37 kW/tr under AHRI conditions. Compare the energy savings with your currently installed equipment.
