Trane said it recently launched 17 new HVAC products. In addition, the company also incorporated a complete refrigerant conversion from HCFC-22 to an environmentally responsible HFC refrigerant, R-410A, for its entire unitary product line in the Americas to ensure full compliance with federal refrigerant regulations.
Among the 17 new products launched over the past 18 months include:
•Model CGAM air-cooled scroll chiller – CGAM is reportedly 50% more efficient at partial load than the minimum efficiency targets of ASHARAE 90.1, and up to 10% more efficient at full load than ASHRAE 90.1 targets.
•Odyssey split-system – The redesigned Odyssey product features microprocessor controls for greater control and increased system reliability, and an increased ambient temperature rating to 125 degrees F to meet global demand.
•Precedent rooftop units – The packaged rooftop unit is reportely 15% more efficient than typical packaged systems and ASHRAE 90.1 requirements. To achieve this, the new system features a direct-drive, plenum fan (featuring a backward-inclined blade design) that allows for overall weight and unit-size reduction, reducing energy consumption and utility costs. The system offers three stages of cooling on high-efficiency dual-compressor units for more temperature control and year-round energy savings.
•Tracer SC System – The Tracer SC control system reportedly improves the energy efficiency of rooftop variable air volume (VAV) systems by up to 25%.
•Performance Climate Changer air handler – The unit is designed to provide a clean, comfortable environment for commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings while providing energy efficiency and system optimization.
