Danfoss was recognized with the Product of the Year award at the 2018 AHR Expo for its Turbocor TTH/TGH high lift compressors. They are designed to give chiller manufacturers a high efficiency, oil-free compressor option for air-cooled chillers, heat recovery and water-to-water heat pumps.

TTH/TGH high lift compressors have the oil-free, variable-speed, magnetic-bearing operation of other Danfoss Turbocor compressors but include an expanded operating map suitable for high lift applications. In air-cooled chillers, the units can support operation at high ambient temperatures with pressure ratios as high as 6.2. According to the company, this facilitates a greater operating range in hot climates while still being able to support applications such as air-to-water heat pump chillers. 

A panel of third-party ASHRAE member judges selected the annual Product of the Year from the year’s 10 AHR Expo Innovation Award winners. The Danfoss compressors had previously been named the 2018 AHR Expo Innovation Award winner in the Green Building category. The company has been recognized six times in the Expo’s Innovation Awards program for its Turbocor compressors.
