SYDNEY, Australia, Feb. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As part of Carrier Asia’s commitment to supporting the drive for lower global warming refrigerant solutions, Carrier AquaEdge® 19XR water-cooled centrifugal chillers, 23XRV water-cooled screw chillers and AquaForce® 30KA/XA/XB air-cooled screw and 30XW/HXC water-cooled screw chillers can be used with both R-134a as well as lower global warming potential (GWP) options including HFOs and blends such as R450A and R513A. Carrier, a world leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

“Our customers rely on Carrier for quality, reliability and predictability and they will be pleased to know our AquaEdge 19XR and 23XRV water-cooled chillers along with our AquaForce 30KA/XA/XB air-cooled and 30XW/HXC water-cooled chillers are able to transition from R-134a to lower GWP options including HFOs and blends such as R450A and R513A at the same time we pursue development of other low global warming refrigerant alternatives,” said Sanjeev Yadav, director of Strategy, Marketing and Communications, UTC Climate, Controls & Security, Asia Pacific.

“We believe R-134a will continue to provide the best combination of availability, cost, performance and safety for many years to come. The ability to convert our R-134a chillers to other refrigerants provides owners and facility managers even greater options that ensure the full useful life of this chiller,” Yadav added.
