Luvata announces the launch of TKE: a new series of air-cooled condensers

10/03/2011

TKE catalogue now available

TKE is Luvata’s brand new series of air-cooled condensers, suitable for a wide range of applications in the refrigeration and commercial air-conditioning sectors.

TKE replaces and improves on the preceding TCE range, currently being phased out, offering a wider selection of fan motor diameters including the traditional 350 mm fan motor diameter and now also the 450 mm diameter as standard, thereby guaranteeing greater versatility.

Highly efficient heat exchangers are fitted to all models in the series and are made with special profile aluminium fins and inner grooved copper tube, which use a reduced quantity of refrigerant and are well suited for next generation refrigerants.

The models can be used interchangeably with the horizontal airflow version (H – with standard support brackets) or with the vertical airflow version (V – with a kit of legs available upon request).  The fan motors and casing are already prepared for grounding.

The dimensional optimizations and the new 450mm diameter fan motors together with the new geometry of heat exchanger, bring desirable results including a reduction in the internal volume by up to 69% and a reduction in the energy consumption by up to 33 % when comparing to equivalent TCE models.

“The market has reacted positively to the launch of the new TKE series,” remarked Umberto Di Barbora, Product Manager with Luvata. “The evolution of this product is in reaction to the feedback that we have received from our clients and is the direct response to their needs.  The TKE series is very flexible and suitable for all air-conditioning and refrigeration applications.  The new possibilities for customization means it can be adapted to almost any situation and installation.”

All technical details regarding the standard options can be found in the TKE catalogue.  For any additional information on the TKE series, please contact Luvata’s technical department in Italy.
