Ingersoll Rand announces another milestone in achieving its climate commitment, a roadmap to significantly reduce the environmental impact from its operations and product portfolio by 2030.
Ingersoll Rand has created the EcoWise portfolio of products for its climate and industrial refrigerant-bearing products that are designed to lower environmental impact with next-generation, low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants and high-efficiency operation. These products are compatible with and can use next-generation low GWP refrigerants, reduce environmental impact by lowering greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and maintain or improve safety and energy efficiency through innovative design.
Trane Sintesis air-cooled chiller is energy-efficient and quiet and offers customers the choice of operating with a next-generation, low GWP refrigerant—DuPont Opteon XP10 (R-513A) or with R-134a. The product will be available in North America and Latin America with a next-generation refrigerant option in June 2015.
Trane Series E CenTraVac is a large-capacity chiller that uses the same low-pressure design on which current CenTraVac chillers were based and uses a next-generation, low GWP refrigerant, Honeywell Solstic zd (R-1233zd(E)). It is up to 10 percent more energy-efficient than the next available centrifugal chiller and is available in Europe, the Middle East and other 50hz markets including Japan.
Thermo King truck and trailer refrigeration products sold in Europe and global marine refrigeration units are safe, reliable and efficient, and use DuPont Opteon XP44 (R-452A) refrigerant, which has about 50 percent less GWP than current refrigerant. SLXe trailer units with next-generation refrigerant are now available. Factory units and retrofit kits will be available in the European Union in 2015.
