21 January 2020

Kirloskar Chillers, a part of the Kirloskar Group, launched a new range of water cooled chillers using India’s first oil free magnetic bearing centrifugal compressor at an inaugural event held at Mumbai on November 8. With technical expertise to design and manufacture compressors using magnetic levitation technology, Kirloskar Chillers has joined a select few manufacturers globally capable of offering this technology. This technology promises to dominate rotating equipment in general and chillers in particular over the next few decades.

At the event, Rahul Kirloskar, Vice Chairman of the Kirloskar Group, said, “Kirloskar Chillers is committed to the Green Movement in India, and is continuously striving to offer more energy-efficient and environment-friendly products to the market. With the latest addition of indigenously manufactured magnetic bearing centrifugal chillers with capacities between 400 and 1200 TR, Kirloskar Chillers leads from the front in promoting the Modi government’s ‘Make in India’ philosophy.”

During the inaugural ceremony he also highlighted a few achievements of Kirloskar Chillers Private Ltd. (KCPL) over the last two decades. KCPL was the first in India to manufacture Hydro-Fluorocarbon (HFC) 134a centrifugal chillers. It was also the first manufacturer in India to offer chillers certified by Air-Conditioning, Heating, & Refrigeration Institute (AHRI). KCPL also set up the first and, even today, the largest AHRIcertified test facility in India, and was the first to introduce screw chillers using low Global Warming Potential (GWP) Hydrofluoro-olefin (HFO) refrigerants ahead of the market trend. KCPL has consistently been setting new benchmarks in the chiller industry.

Avinash Manjul, Managing Director, Kirloskar Chillers who was also present at the event, said, “At KCPL, we continue to focus on Research & Development, with a view to developing world class products that continue to delight our customers. It is a matter of pride that KCPL’s products are well-accepted in several countries in Asia, Middle East and Africa.”
