Better chillers - from the inside out
The constant innovation in chiller design is driven by new demands for energy efficiency, local regulations and standards such as LEED, combined with requirements for new, low GWP refrigerants.
Increasing population, level of comfort and high penetration of IT technologies are putting strong pressure on electric grids and driving up overall energy consumption.
The next generations of chillers and HVAC for new builds as well as retrofits are designed to meet new standards. The revolution in the A/C market opens up new opportunities. To meet the needs of an increasingly complex HVAC market, our extensive range of components offer functional benefits and savings throughout the lifecycle of the chiller system from development and operating costs to servicing and maintenance.
Danfoss can offer different options for meeting these requirements in air-cooled and water-cooled chillers, using scroll, centrifugal or screw technology, with excellent technical support from our expert teams. Compressors can be configured as tandems, trios or using inverter or Turbocor technology. With our electric expansion valves, controllers and sensors we can supply you with the right solutions for a highly efficient air conditioning system that responds quickly to variable operating conditions ensuring constant user comfort.
Danfoss products and solutions make up to 70% of chiller systems and bring multiple benefits for OEMs, consulting engineers and building owners in various industries and building types. Explore the case stories here.

The Danfoss ChillerROI app simplifies the decision-making process by allowing you to estimate the return on investment (ROI) using a few pieces of basic information. Simply enter the parameters into the app, and you’ll get a side-by-side comparison that displays the expected long- and short-term costs. Then, you can choose the best chiller for the situation.
Compressors for refrigeration
Danfoss focuses on providing energy efficient, sustainable and smart refrigeration compressors for a varied range of commercial applications such as cold rooms, display windows, ice making machines, glass door merchandizers, process cooling etc. Their qualification with lower GWP refrigerants make them compliant with refrigerant regulations such as F-Gas in Europe.
NRV refrigeration check valves
NRV and NRVH can be used in liquid, suction and hot gas lines in refrigeration and air conditioning plants with fluorinated refrigerants. NRV and NRVH can be supplied with flare and solder connections. They are also available with oversize solder connections providing flexibility in the use of check valves.
Denmark's new climate-friendly hospitality giant depends on Turbocor® oil-free chiller
The new Alsik hotel in Southern Denmark sets a higher standard in energy-efficiency and is built to reach 76% CO₂-neutrality. A main contributor is the 900-kW chillers by Clint (a company of G.I. Industrial Holding) which features award-winning Danfoss Turbocor oil-free compressors.
Oil-free compressors maintain consistent performance over time
Danfoss conducted a study to see how long term operation affected performance on Danfoss Turbocor® compressors. The results showed that oil-free, magnetic bearing compressors maintained consistent performance even after 10+ years of operation.
