Kaltra updated chillers to comply with ErP 2021

This week Kaltra completed the modernization for all its chiller families for compliance with Tier-2 Ecodesign Directive requirements that have come into force from January 2021.

Under the Ecodesign Directive (2009/125/EC), the EU government set a framework for the development of minimum requirements for the energy and environmental performance of energy-related products (ErP), including water chillers, throughout their life-cycle. The regulation implements in two phases – a more lenient Tier-1 will be upgraded with stricter Tier-2 following a scheduled program of action.

Although much of our chiller range was already compliant with Tier-2, we have invested increasingly in our research and development efforts to ensure all of our products conform to current legislation, including the Ecodesign Directive (2009/125/EC) and F-Gas regulations.

Effective now, all Kaltra chillers intended for air conditioning and comfort cooling are met and exceed Minimum Efficiency Performance Standards (MEPS) for Seasonal Cooling Energy Efficiency (SCEE), Tier-2, while high-temperature process chillers have complied with Minimum Efficiency Performance Standards (MEPS) for Seasonal Energy Performance Ratio (SEPR), Tier-2.

Headquartered in Germany and Austria, Kaltra designs, develops, and manufactures air conditioning and refrigeration equipment and systems. The company offers air-cooled, water-cooled, and free cooling chillersprecision air conditionersIT cooling systems, including room-, rack- and row-based solutions, and energy management solutions. It also designs and manufactures air-cooled condensersdry coolers, and cooling units for special applications. Additionally, Kaltra offers microchannel heat exchangers for condenser, evaporator, and water cooling and heating applications, as well as aluminium coils for small cooling applications. All Kaltra products are engineered with the clear objective of improving energy efficiency and reducing total cost of ownership.
