Kir­loskar adopts Honey­well’s Sol­stice® ZE re­frig­er­ant for break­through chiller line in In­dia

Power Watch India - - EQUIPMENT WATCH -

Honey­well an­nounced that Kir­loskar Chillers, part of the Kir­loskar Group, Pune-based engi­neer­ing con­glom­er­ate, is us­ing Honey­well’s Sol­stice® ze (R-1234ze(E)) re­frig­er­ant in its new line of chillers man­u­fac­tured in In­dia. Kir­loskar’s new “Make in In­dia” chillers help the coun­try de­liver on its fo­cus for next-gen­er­a­tion cool­ing sys­tems. In­dia is one of the key sig­na­to­ries of the Ki­gali amend­ment to the Mon­treal Pro­to­col, which is fo­cused on phas­ing down the use of high-global-warm­ing hy­droflu­o­ro­car­bons (HFCs). Sol­stice ze is an en­vi­ron­men­tally prefer­able hy­droflu­oro-olefin (HFO) re­frig­er­ant de­vel­oped by Honey­well that is avail­able im­me­di­ately as an option to sup­port the In­dian gov­ern­ment’s tran­si­tion away from high-global-warm­ing-po­ten­tial re­frig­er­ants. “We eval­u­ated the range of op­tions avail­able for our lat­est gen­er­a­tion of chillers, and Honey­well’s Sol­stice ze is the ideal so­lu­tion, since it helps us meet en­vi­ron­men­tal tar­gets to re­duce green­house gas emis­sions. Honey­well’s tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise helped us dur­ing devel­op­ment of the first HFO-chiller pro­duced in In­dia,” said Prashant Joshi, vice pres­i­dent for Kir­loskar Chillers.

World­wide adop­tion of Sol­stice prod­ucts has re­sulted in re­duc­tion of more than 35 mil­lion met­ric tonnes of green­house gases to date, equal to per­ma­nently elim­i­nat­ing emis­sions from more than 7.5 mil­lion cars.
