New Carrier AquaSnap 30RC Air Cooled Chiller Helps Maximize Building Space While Delivering Efficiency and Sustainability

January 23, 2023

Carrier introduced today the all-new AquaSnap® 30RC air-cooled scroll chiller featuring Greenspeed® intelligence and R-32 refrigerant, which complies with Jan. 1, 2024 low global warming potential (GWP) requirements, with best in class energy-efficiency while delivering quieter operation within a tiered design for a broader operating range and design flexibility*. Carrier is a part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), the leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions.

The AquaSnap 30RC was developed with advanced features to ensure performance and efficiency with a new compact tier unit design, providing customers with the option to choose the chiller that fits their business and sustainability needs. The optimizations boost the integrated part load values (IPLV) up to 18 for a wide range of applications from 60 to 150 tons using GWP R-32 refrigerant to further reduce impact on the environment.

The chiller’s new compact tier design, with a physical footprint less than standard chillers, enables it to be deployed where space is tight without compromising performance. With the high cost of real estate, Carrier developed the smaller footprint chiller for a range of applications where optimum space utilization is crucial.

“With the development of the 30RC air-cooled chiller line, we continue our commitment of providing customers with the latest low GWP refrigerant to comply with pending 2024 requirements, while improving efficiency and keeping the flexibility and high efficiency we already offer with our legacy models,” said Meredith Emmerich, Vice President, North America Commercial HVAC, Carrier. “This allows customers to reduce energy costs, be compliant with the latest refrigerant regulations and have access to different coil and evaporator configurations, all in a small footprint. These benefits of the AquaSnap 30RC tightly align with our customers’ sustainability goals, energy needs, cost pressures, changing business requirements, comfort needs and health concerns.”

The AquaSnap 30RC with Greenspeed intelligence is ideally suited for office buildings, schools, data centers, hotels, hospitals and any other applications where quieter operation, high efficiency and a flexible footprint are requirements. This new model features variable frequency drives for the fan motors along with advanced PIC6 controls to obtain optimal chiller performance.

Energy efficient solutions like the AquaSnap 30RC support Carrier’s 2030 Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) goal to help its customers avoid more than one gigaton of greenhouse gas emissions.
