The world leader in oil-free chiller efficiencysmardt1

The Smardt Chiller Group was established to maximize the customer benefits of the Turbocor oil-free centrifugal compressor technology in chiller performance. Driving whole life costs of ownership way down, your Smardt chiller saves you money, year after long year, while reducing your carbon footprint and making a major contribution to the future of the planet. Working with the Turbocor technology longer than any other HVAC manufacturer in the world, the Smardt Chiller Group has developed a lead in performance and reliability which translates into major benefits for owners – and the environment.

The heart of every Smardt chiller is its Turbocor oil-free centrifugal compressors, which integratesmardt2 rugged magnetic bearings systems with variable-speed drive, high-efficiency centrifugal compression and on-board digital electronics to achieve a revolutionary leap in part-load energy efficiency.

All Smardt chillers, whether water‑cooled or air‑cooled, are designed to optimize the performance of oil-free centrifugal compressors from Danfoss Turbocor Compressors Inc. These use oil-free magnetic bearings and variable-speed drives to deliver better IPLV efficiencies than conventional oil-lubricated centrifugal, reciprocating, scroll and screw compressors. They are also high speed – up to 48,000 rpm, very compact, very quiet, rugged and reliable. Power factor is a high .92. Proprietary magnetic bearings replace conventional oil-lubricated bearings, eliminating high friction losses, mechanical wear and high-maintenance oil management systems to deliver energy savings of 35 percent and more over conventional chillers while ensuring long-term reliability. Over 90,000 magnetic bearing machines are operating in the field, mainly in high-end vacuum pumps and CNC spindles – any innovation risk with this component technology has been long overcome. Turbocor’s one main moving part (rotor shaft and impellers) is levitated during rotation by a digitally controlled magnetic bearing system. Position sensors at each magnetic bearing provide real-time feedback to the bearing control system, 120 times each revolution, ensuring constantly centered rotation.

Smardt oil-free centrifugal chillers offer the highest IPLV energy efficiencies and the lowest lifetime operating costs in their capacity ranges – 60 TR through 1200 TR in water cooled, and 60 TR through 450 TR in air cooled.

smardt3The worldwide operations of the Smardt smardt4Chiller Group offer a greater depth of technical support and greater experience than anyone else in the world with oil-free centrifugal technology and its successful delivery of lifetime energy cost savings.
