Trane Introduces New Sintesis™ Air-Cooled Screw Chiller Design for Increased Efficiency, Sustainability and Unmatched Capacity

The new offering is part of the Ingersoll Rand EcoWise™ portfolio of products, designed to lower environmental impact with next-generation, low-GWP refrigerants and high-efficiency operation

Brussels, Dec. 12, 2017 – Trane®, a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, is introducing model RTAF G, the latest design in the Sintesis™ portfolio of air-cooled screw chillers. This new high performing and climate friendly heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system offers commercial building owners in Europe another solution to help achieve sustainability goals.

Model RTAF G delivers capacity up to 1700 kilowatts (kW) which is a benefit for most large commercial and industrial cooling applications that require maximum performance within a limited installation space. The new model creates a valuable option for customers who want to transition to a next-generation refrigerant while still maintaining or improving their system’s capacity, functionality and efficiency because it uses R-1234ze, a near zero global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant.

“We are pleased to introduce the Sintesis RTAF G, to our leading chiller portfolio which offers our customers many choices for sustainability,” said Jose La Loggia, vice president and general manager of Trane in Europe. “At Trane, we continue to innovate by listening to our customers’ needs, and they want to meet their sustainability goals without sacrificing quality, reliability or performance. This is why we continue to provide solutions like this latest model that help them meet their objectives.”
