Engineered Conversion Refrigerant Upgrades

Engineered Conversion Refrigerant Upgrades – Now available for R-123 to R-514A for CenTraVac™ Chillers!

A Trane chiller retrofit provides a lot more than just parts. Trane uses the same performance modeling and optimization techniques for Engineered Conversions as it uses in designing new chillers. That enables us to re-engineer your chiller to optimize it for your specific operating conditions, often improving its performance at the same time.  Trane now offers Engineered Conversions for R-123 to R-514A as part of our service portfolio.

A Trane Engineered Conversion assures the same material reliability as that found in new CenTraVac® chillers. When we retrofit, we use materials that are tested to Trane new chiller standards. As part of the process, we use our engineering records to identify and provide replacements for all parts that are incompatible with the new refrigerant. Because we designed and built your Trane chiller, we have the capability to re-engineer it to perform as well (perhaps even better) after its retrofit.

All Trane Engineered Conversion retrofits include a new Trane nameplate that records chiller performance parameters and all changed materials. This information is key for future Trane technical and parts support for the chiller.

Trane's support can last the life of your chiller. It's amazing how much time and trouble that
can save. 


When to Take the Next Step in Sustainability

With R-123 guaranteed to be available through 2040 for service, owners have the luxury of deciding when it makes the most business sense to convert to R-514A.  R-123 still provides industry-leading GWP values and is fully compliant with environmental regulations.  The best time for CenTraVac owners to consider an Engineered Conversion is when:

·         Performing an R’newal™:  When you’re planning an R’newal service to extend its your chiller’s useful life, the R-123 Engineered Conversion is a logical add-on service to help you get ahead of future environmental regulations.

·         Meeting Sustainability Goals:  Many companies have set aggressive goals for greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions, and Engineered Conversion gives you another option to reduce GWP.

·         Simplifying Operations:  New CenTraVac chillers can ship with R-514A refrigerant today. Converting existing chillers enables use of consistent refrigerants across the facility’s multiple chillers.
