Chosen from among the top Innovation Award winners in 10 industry-related categories, the Danfoss VTT (Variable Twin Turbo) Series compressor is intended for process cooling or commercial air conditioning applications that require a high efficiency solution. The compressors qualified to compete for the top award by taking top honors in the “Green Building” category.

The awards program was designed to recognize the most innovative and useful products among the thousands on display at the AHR Expo. Entries submitted by exhibitors each year are judged on the basis of innovative design, application, market impact and value. Each year, the entry fees are donated to a local charity in the city where the Expo is being held.

This year, a total of $16,400 was donated to Metropolitan Family Services, the Chicago area’s longest serving human services agency. Metropolitan will use this contribution to purchase a boiler and HVACR components for the Family Services DuPage Community Center that serves several thousand families in need.
