Danfoss Wins Product of the Year

From 2022 AHR Today

Las Vegas—Danfoss (Booth N8241) is victorious. Monday at the 2022 AHR Expo, Danfoss’ new Turbocor VTCA400 compressor was named the 2022 AHR Expo Product of the Year, edging out nine other Innovation Awards category winners.

The compressor is the world’s first oil-free, variable-speed, magnetic bearing centrifugal compressor using a hybrid compression design that is optimized for use with low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant R-1233zd in water-cooled chiller applications. The VTCA400’s patent-pending hybrid compression design uses a combination of mixed flow and radial impellers, enabling both high-performance and a compact footprint. Its hybrid compression design allows for a compressor footprint that is half the physical size and weight of a conventional radial-only design while maintaining high efficiency levels.

The annual AHR Expo Innovation Awards honors the most inventive and original products created by the HVAC&R industry. For more information, visit ahrexpo.com/awards
