CenTraVac Chiller Upgrades

Existing HVAC Equipment Upgrades

Extend the life of your chiller.

Trane engineers CenTraVac® chillers to last. Our exclusive upgrades and services can help to extend useful life, increase reliability, restore or gain efficiences, and make your chiller easier to operate. Explore our upgrade offerings for your CenTraVac chiller below.

CenTraVac R'newal®

Any chiller will experience wear and tear over it's useful life. Our exclusive overhaul service, the CenTraVac R'newal, addresses the most common causes of performance decline. It's a planned maintenance approach that reduces unplanned downtime, renews reliability, and extends the life of your chiller--giving you more years of worry-free chiller performance. This exclusive  factory-warranted overhaul service includes new genuine Trane parts, a new serial number and the expertise of our factory trained and authrorized Trane technicians.

Chiller Controls Upgrade

Just because your CenTravac chiller was manufactured in 1995 doesn't mean it's controls need to be!  Our exclusive Tracer® AdaptiView™ controls upgrade provides an intuitive interface that improves chiller performance, efficiency, reliability, and serviceability.

Variable Frequency Drive Upgrade and R'newal Options

Upgrading to a variable frequency drive can provide significant energy savings and reduce demand charges where utilitly rates and electric demand are high. Our Adaptive Frequency™ drive updates your chiller to variable speed operation that saves energy and reduces noise at part-load operation. Work with your local Trane Service Specialist to understand the energy savings and payback potential for an upgrade. We also offer a drive overhaul service, AFD R'newal, a proactive service that ensures reliability for years to come.

Starter Replacement and Upgrade Options

For most buildings, a chiller's electrical inrush is the largest electrical demand of the building. A starter is expected to operate thousands of times a decade, so a major service over it's life is certainly expected. A planned, comprehensive upgrade is much less disruptive and expensive than replacing components on fail. Trane offers Wye-Delta and Solid State starter upgrades and replacements.

Refrigerant Upgrade

Converting seamlessly to a new refrigerant requires detailed compatibility assessments and OEM knowledge of the equipment. Trane has identified R-514A as the optimal next-generation refrigerant for replacement and now provides a comprehensive Engineered Conversion service to owners of CenTraVac® chillers that shipped with R-123. Since R-123 can be manufactured for service use until 2030, you have the luxury of deciding if and 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.
