FAQ

  • What is the payback on the investment?

    The payback period for the Kit is calculated as a maximum of 4 years for the lower power kit (LT1), and a maximum of 2 years for the higher power kit (LT5).

  • Does an existing refrigeration system need to be recertified after inserting a Turbulator kit?

    The Turbulator kit has all the certification required for the type of product, including PED. A refrigerating system with kit will only need recertification through a simple inspection.

  • Can the product be installed in a central machine room with multi-compressor system?

    Every Turboalgor kit be installed on a refrigerating system, even in multi-compressor mode, provided the right size of kit is chosen to work within the required power range for the compressors operating at the same time. We are always available to help you to assess every case for connecting our products to systems with large cooling capacity and several compressors connected in parallel, and to help find the technical solutions that can meet the customer’s energy-saving needs.

  • Does the kit need remote control, or does it work autonomously?

    The kit works autonomously, and the only external power is a 220V 1° (monophase) with power consumption of approx. 0.2 kW. Together with the kit, it is possible to purchase a remote monitoring system to consult the data from the kit and the system in real time.

  • Can the kit be installed on refrigerating systems with inverter-controlled compressors?

    The kit can be installed on refrigerating systems with inverter-controlled compressors but of course, for significant savings from our turbomachine, the frequency modulation must not fall below 38-40 Hz. If this occurs, the TurboAlgor kit would not have any problem with operating, but the energy savings would also fall, as they are linked to a significant capacity reduction in the turbo-compressor.

  • Is the kit compatible with any type of compressor?

    To date we have developed kits for compressors with a maximum power of 300 kW, but the TurboAlgor kit is compatible with any type of compressor.

  • What is the minimum condensation pressure for Kit operation to be possible?

    Condensation temperature influences the performance of the TurboAlgor kit: the higher the condensation temperature, the more energy can be saved. All data we provide, unless otherwise specified, refer to a condensation temperature of 40°C; with condensation at 30°C, the benefits are around 80% of those at 40°C. We have also carried out tests for condensation temperatures of 20°C; there is no problem for operation of the kit, but performance levels drop significantly because the turbine begins to operate at low efficiency.

  • What is the useful life of turbo mechanical parts?

    We expect our turbo to have the same useful life as the refrigerating system, which is about 20 years on average. A critical part of the turbomachine is its bearings. TurboAlgor uses the same bearings as used on car turbines, with proven reliability spanning various years.
    The turbine operates at low temperatures and relatively low speeds, parameters that increase the useful life of the turbine.

The TurboAlgor product range

Our products cover a range of different combinations of cooling power and evaporation temperatures to meet the needs of the whole cold chain. We offer three solutions to suit the different integration levels: Stand Alone kit, Integrated Solution and Advanced Integrated Solution.

Product range

Payback period of no more than 4 years for every TurboAlgor system.

The EU’s challenge is also our challenge.

TurboAlgor is the company at the head of COLD ENERGY, a project financed by the European Community with the aim of reducing consumption and emissions and improving the efficiency of cooling systems.

  • Increased competitiveness

    TurboAlgor contributes to increasing the competitiveness of European companies in the refrigeration industry.

  • CO₂ reductions

    Using cutting-edge technology, TurboAlgor is able to cut carbon emissions, in line with EU directives.

  • For new or existing systems

    With its three application solutions, TurboAlgor can intervene on both new and existing systems.
