Modular chiller system
The Virtual Moveable End Cap II system from Multistack has dedicated heat recovery chillers that produce cooling and heating.
Multistack has created the Virtual Moveable End Cap II system, which utilizes a combination of dedicated heat recovery chillers (DHRC) to create systems from 20 to 600 tons that produce simultaneous cooling and heating. No reversing valves are used in the modules, and the engineering design is based on single refrigerant lift and counter-flow in the heat exchangers. It is packaged as a four-pipe heat pump system and uses dual independent compressors to assure redundancy. The DHRC units allow end users to produce hot and cold water simultaneously while tying into closed or ground-loop water sources.
