Carrier Innovations Named Finalists in Magazine Competition


CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Carrier announced that both the Weather Series Rooftop Unit (RTU) with EcoBlue Technology and the AquaEdge 19DV water-cooled chiller have been named finalists in Consulting-Specifying Engineer1 (C-SE) magazine’s Product of the Year competition. Readers can vote for the 2019 Product of the Year winners at http://www.csemag.com/NP4E until June 28, 2019.

Carrier, a world leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative HVAC, refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.

The C-SE competition named the Weather Series RTU with EcoBlue Technology a finalist in the “HVAC” category. Designed to improve performance and efficiency while decreasing maintenance and installation costs, it’s the industry’s first beltless direct-drive vane axial fan for RTUs. In fact, due to its ability to lower operating, installation and maintenance costs, it was already named a Money Saving Product of the Year by BUILDINGS2 magazine. Other enhancements include a direct-drive electronically commutated motor that enables greater efficiency, a dynamically balanced blade fan for reliable performance, a new control board and coil technology, permanently lubricated motor bearings, tool-less filter access doors and more.

All Will Benefit from Technological Advancements

“Building owners, their occupants and the contractors who install the Weather Series RTUs with EcoBlue Technology will all benefit from the many technological advancements we have delivered,” said Chris Opie, Vice President, Product Marketing & Platform Strategy, Carrier Commercial HVAC Global Equipment. “The level of innovation is a nod to the engineering genius Carrier is known for since it first brought modern air-conditioning to the world in 1902.”

Also named a finalist is the AquaEdge 19DV water-cooled centrifugal chiller, in the competition’s “Chiller” category. It features breakthrough technologies, Greenspeed intelligence and a low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant R1233zd(E), which has a GWP of ~1. Its innovative features offer versatility and a full-system approach to improve cooling efficiency while allowing for effective heat recovery and free cooling all in the same machine.

“The 19DV delivers on customer demands for ultimate performance, leading efficiency and environmental responsibility,” said Opie. “We’re pleased to see the 19DV receive the industry acknowledgement it deserves for achieving optimal performance, efficiency, reliability and control. It’s an incredibly groundbreaking system.”
