Optyma™ A2L extension range and DMLE/DCLE filter driers

Wednesday, November 2, 2022

Danfoss extends the cooling capacity range of its Optyma™ A2L condensing units further than ever and releases A2L-ready hermetic filter driers

The latest extension of the Optyma™ Plus condensing units’ cooling capacity range—combined with the launch of A2L-compatible DMLE and DCLE hermetic filter driers—means Danfoss now offers its most complete portfolio yet for supporting your transition to low GWP refrigerants.

With continued requirements and efforts to phase down high Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerants, the demand increases for components and solutions compatible with low GWP refrigerants—offering a cost-effective route to compliance while maintaining a conventional system design.

That’s why Danfoss has expanded its portfolio of A2L-compliant refrigeration solutions by once again extending the cooling capacity range for its Optyma™ Plus condensing units.

The extended cooling capacities are:

Up to 15 kW MBP and 5.9 kW LBP for Optyma™ Plus

As a result, cooling professionals now have more options than ever to meet their specific application needs—especially for cold rooms with evaporation temperatures down to -35°C—cementing Danfoss’ position as your one-stop-shop for multi-refrigerant condensing units.

Complete portfolio of cooling options with Optyma™ condensing units

The Danfoss Optyma™ Slim Pack and Optyma™ Plus condensing units feature a future-proof design compatible with both A2L and A1 refrigerants—e.g., R1234yf, R454C, and R455A—in the same unit.

This means you can make a seamless transition to low GWP refrigerants at your own pace. And thanks to the units’ well-known high serviceability, you can do so with ease and confidence, as they were engineered to operate with A2L refrigerants safely and without complexity.

The Optyma™ condensing units deliver high efficiency that helps reduce energy consumption and indirect emissions—for an economically viable solution to optimize cooling for the future, today.

New multi-refrigerant filter driers—ready for the transition when you are

Further supporting it’s A2L portfolio, Danfoss has released new DMLE and DCLE multi-refrigerant hermetic filter driers as part of our ELIMINATOR® family. Compatible with A1, A2, A2L, and A3 refrigerants, this gives you the flexibility to embrace the green transition when you’re ready.

DMLE and DCLE filter driers are designed for high performance, durability, and large refrigerant volumes—withstanding a maximum working pressure (MWP) of 50 Bar (725 psi) and working temperature range of 40 °C to 70 °C (-40 °F to 160 °F).

They are available with copper, copper-plated, and flare connections and will offer core sizes 1.5, 3, 5, and 8 cubic inches with filters from 1.5 to 5 cubic inches maintaining the same dimensions and weight as the current DML and DCL filter driers.
