Danfoss, the manufacturer of oil-free, magnetic bearing, variable speed centrifugal compressors for high-efficiency air-conditioning chillers, has been voted a Bronze Winner in the Edison Awards, a program that honors innovation and excellence in the development to new products and services. The awards were presented at The Capitale in New York City during a ceremony attended by hundreds of senior executives from some of the world’s most innovative and recognized companies.
The Danfoss Turbocor VTT (Variable Twin Turbo) compressors are oil-free, variable speed, magnetic bearing centrifugal compressors ideal for commercial air-conditioning or process cooling chillers reaching up to 1,000 tons or more. The series introduces IntraFlow, a patent-pending technology that improves efficiency and provides an extended stable operating range while simplifying capacity control. It also enables chiller manufactures to provide the best life cycle cost for commercial buildings, helping end users to save significant money and meet their targets to reduce CO2 emissions.
The compressors were previously named the 2015 AHR Expo Product of the Year.
President of Danfoss Turbocor Compressors Ricardo Schneider, who received the Edison Award, said: “It is a tremendous honor to be recognized among the most innovative companies and leaders, representing the best teams around the globe that bring creative solutions to customers’ problems. With this award, we celebrate and thank our customers – our partners – for their continued innovation and leadership in bringing revolutionary Turbocor compressors to the market.”
The ballot of nominees for the Edison Awards was judged by a panel of more than 3,000 business executives including past award winners, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medical.
