Why use magnetic bearing centrifugal compressors?
Of all the components of a chiller-based air conditioning system, the chiller consumes the most energy. The efficiency of such systems can be improved upon by the use of magnetic bearing centrifugal compressors, says Amitabha Sur, Director, Operations, Aircon India Incorporated. Magnetic bearing centrifugal compressors significantly reduce the energy consumed by the chiller during part load conditions from 0.6 kw per tonne to 0.35 kw per tonne, thereby increasing the overall COP (co-efficient of performance) of the system. Aircon India Incorporated recommended this technology for a new building of the National Institute of Biomedical Genomics at Kalyani in West Bengal.
