Carrier’s AquaEdge™ 23XRV chiller


with Greenspeed® intelligence is the
world’s first integrated variable speed,
water-cooled, screw chiller.
It incorporates significant break-
throughs in water-cooled chiller tech-
nology to provide excellent reliability
and achieve superior efficiencies at
true operating conditions without com-
promising the environment.
The 23XRV chiller provides:
• Variable speed, positive
displacement screw compressor.
• Air Conditioning, Heating, and
Refrigerant Institute (AHRI) certified
efficiencies to 0.299 kW/ton (AHRI
IPLV).
• Chlorine-free HFC-134a refrigerant.
• IEEE-519 compliance for harmonic
distortion with units equipped with
the LF-2 variable frequency drive
(VFD).
• An ideal solution for constant and
variable flow pumping systems.

Features/Benefits
Quality design and con-
struction make the
AquaEdge 23XRV chillers the
best choice for modern,
efficient chilled water plants.
