New PENSUM AIR from ENGIE Refrigeration is keeping things cool at a large German laboratory

July 2020

ENGIE Refrigeration GmbH from Lindau on Lake Constance, Germany, redesigned its air-cooled PENSUM AIR series and further optimized it for use in medium-capacity ranges. The refrigeration and heating specialist has now been able to deliver a model from the new series within Germany: in future, a PENSUM AIR from the Free Cool line with a refrigeration capacity of 295 kilowatts will ensure the requisite indoor climate at a large research institute.

 

The future is in the making at research and development institutes. It is therefore very fitting

that the first chiller from ENGIE Refrigeration's PENSUM AIR series, which was redesigned

in January 2020, will be deployed in precisely this working environment. After all, this model

is also fully geared towards the future. For example, the PENSUM AIR now operates with

even greater efficiency in the medium-capacity range than its predecessor, especially under

partial loads. This chiller is also particularly eco-friendly and uses the future-proof refrigerant

R-454B. This has a low GWP value of 466 and, consequently, already meets the future

requirements of the F-Gas Regulation which take effect in 2030. For a large German

research laboratory working in the field of infectious diseases, this was the key factor in its

decision to choose a PENSUM AIR from the Free Cool line. The customer was also won

over by the low overall weight and the extremely low noise levels made possible by the

machine’s installation position on the roof of the building.

 

PENSUM AIR ensures operational reliability

The PENSUM AIR chiller from ENGIE Refrigeration, which was delivered to the customer a

few days ago, has a refrigeration capacity of 295 kilowatts and will in future keep things cool

in the institute's laboratory and office buildings. On site, the PENSUM AIR is an extension of

an existing refrigeration system, but it will be used as the main machine from now on. On the

one hand, this gives the research institute greater overall refrigeration capacity and, on the

other hand, provides better protection for its system, as any failure of the refrigeration system

would render valuable test results unusable. ENGIE Refrigeration has many years of

experience in the field of sensitive areas of application: their chillers are used all over the

world and can be found in medical facilities and in the pharmaceutical industry, to name but

two examples.
