Klima-Therm is delighted to have been shortlisted for the heat pump category of the prestigious HVR Awards.

The highly-respected HVR Awards – organised by Datateam Business Media, publisher of leading industry publication Heating & Ventilating Review – have championed innovation, excellence, and achievement across the heating and ventilating industry for more than a decade.

The awards selection process ensures only the very best take home an accolade and that is how the HVR Awards has established itself as a highly respected platform for recognition of a range of positive and important attributes including sustainability.

Sustainability matters

Too many businesses pay lip service to sustainability. Some go further by engaging in ‘greenwashing’ (putting out disinformation designed to present an environmentally responsible public image without the practice that backs it up), holding back the positive impact of the sustainability movement.

Sustainability means meeting our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. That’s why it is critical to the survival of the planet that we take seriously modern technological developments that have made it possible to gain far tighter control of HVACR systems to boost their environmental effectiveness.

A prime example of sustainable product development in the HVAC sector is the pioneering Engie Refrigeration Spectrum Water supplied by Klima-Therm.

Ultra high-efficiency heat pump

This ultra-high efficiency heat pump designed for industrial and commercial applications or integration into heat networks and district heating in housing developments

The Spectrum Water heat pump offers outstanding energy efficiency, superb operational reliability, and the highest possible quality thanks to a combination of innovative components including oil-free turbo compressors with magnetic bearings, an efficiency-boosting open-flash economiser, and an intelligent Siemens S7 PLC.

The 12 models in the series boast nominal heat outputs of 350 to 3,100kW, a condenser leaving water temperature of up to 65 deg C, and the choice of four refrigerants – R1234ze, R515B, R513A, and R134a.

Capable of using refrigerants with a lower global warming potential, the Spectrum Water heat pump is perfect for integration into heating and cooling networks as well as new housing developments and district solutions.

It is also ideal for a wide range of building types from large hotels and hospitals to shopping centres, office complexes, logistics buildings, and airports. Moreover, it can provide low-temperature process heat for manufacturing industry.

But the advantages of the climate-friendly Spectrum Water heat pump don’t end with its impeccable sustainability credentials. It offers far more, including:

  • High efficiency – a unique combination of turbo compressors with magnetic bearing, flooded shell and tube condensers, and the open-flash economiser as standard guarantees maximum seasonal efficiency and performance with a minimal footprint.
  • Reliability – instead of employing a single compressor, overall capacity is split among multiple compressors, which creates redundancies that maximises operational reliability.
  • Smart operation – the brains of the machine are provided by an intelligent and fast Siemens S7 PLC. To increase user-friendliness and serviceability, it will be possible to operate the machine via a 10in or 15in touch panel, in addition to the simple and intuitive operation on a mobile end device via smart control. The Spectrum Water also interfaces with Engie’s CoolCare remote maintenance software and a lead and follower machine PLC integrated as standard.
  • Oil-free operation – ensuring stable performance and efficiency throughout the machine’s service life, as no oil deposits can develop in the heat exchangers or in the refrigerant circuit. It also makes for a simple and low-maintenance machine design as no oil management peripherals are required.
