Ingersoll Rand EcoWise Products Feature Next Generation, Low-global Warming Potential Refrigerants

May 31, 2016 3:30 PM ET

Marking a milestone in achieving its Climate Commitment, in 2015 Ingersoll Rand launched the EcoWise™ portfolio of products; the EcoWise endorsement is given to products with next-generation, low-global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants and high-efficiency operation. “We look forward to introducing many more commercial, residential and transport HVAC, transport refrigeration and refrigerated dryer products that achieve the criteria for the EcoWise endorsement,” says Didier Teirlinck, executive vice president, climate segment.

The first products to earn the EcoWise endorsement are:

  • Trane Sintesis™ air-cooled chiller. Energy-efficient and quiet, with a low-GWP refrigerant option available globally.
  • Trane Series E™ CenTraVac™. Large capacity, based on current low-pressure CenTraVac centrifugal chiller design, using next generation, low-GWP refrigerant. Available in Europe, the Middle East and other 50hz markets including Japan.
  • Thermo King truck and SLXe™ trailer refrigeration products sold in Europe, as well as global marine refrigeration units. Safe, reliable and efficient with about 50 percent lower GWP than current refrigerant.
