The Kirloskar Group has launched a new range of water-cooled chillers with the use of India’s first oil-free magnetic bearing centrifugal compressor. The new product is named as Kirloskar Chillers.

The company claims that with the technical expertise to design & manufacture compressors using magnetic levitation technology, Kirloskar Chillers has joined a select few manufacturers internationally capable of offering this technology. This technology promises to control rotating equipment, in general & chillers in particular, over the next few decades.

It also highlighted the main advantages of magnetic bearings for compressors used in the chillers over conventional bearings. Chillers actually form a part of the central air-conditioning system & have a big demand in different market segments - both commercial – (hotels, malls, hospitals, airports & IT facilities) & industrial applications i.e. pharmaceuticals, automobiles, textile, chemical & FMCG.

Speaking at the launch ceremony, Vice-Chairman of the Kirloskar Group, Rahul Kirloskar said that “Kirloskar Chillers is committed to the green movement in India & is continuously striving to provide more energy-efficient as well as environment-friendly products to the market. With the latest addition of indigenously manufactured magnetic bearing centrifugal chillers with capacities between 400 & 1200 TR (ton of refrigeration), the Kirloskar Chillers leads from the front in promoting the government’s ‘Make in India’ philosophy.”

KCPL was the first company in India to manufacture hydro-fluorocarbon 134, a centrifugal chillers. It was also the first manufacturer in the country to provide chillers certified by Air-Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration Institute.
