small capacity centrifugal compressor options

small capacity centrifugal compressor options

I have been reading up on centrifugal compressors, and I keep seeing references that small capacity versions exist in the 25 TR to 80 TR range, but I have not been able to determine manufacturers at this small of a capacity. Would anyone be able to point me towards some manufacturers? This range is ideal for my application.

I'm looking to use one with R134a or R513A.



RE: small capacity centrifugal compressor options

Nobody makes them as they are very inefficient at such low capacities

RE: small capacity centrifugal compressor options

That's interesting. The lowest turndown I've seen advertised is 60 TR with Danfoss.

The ASHRAE journal has cited that the technology exists, so I was seeking additional information to see who might be making them that small.



RE: small capacity centrifugal compressor options

Can you buy a 60 tons centrifugal chiller package from Danfoss?If yes compare it against similar capacity machines and see what you get
