Posted by Michelle Howard

Dometic is introducing a new titanium VARCX variable capacity chiller at Seawork International in Southampton, UK. Dometic's HVAC technology has enabled the development of the new chiller with two significant features - corrosion-resistant titanium and variable capacity technology for energy efficiency.

The use of titanium condenser coils is designed to increase chiller longevity, ensuring seawater erosion and corrosion caused by marine organic growth are kept to a minimum.

All Dometic VARC chillers adjust capacity output based on the current load demand, maximizing efficiency and cost-effectiveness. The Dometic VARCX uses an advanced loop control algorithm that modulates the compressor speed and balances chiller output with the required load.

The titanium VARCX achieves variable capacities of 12,000 to 48,000 BTU, 15,000 to 60,000 BTU, and 18,000 to 72,000, while maximizing chiller efficiency and reducing electrical load fluctuations. It can be adjusted to Economy, Standard or Boost mode.
