CHICAGO, Ill. — Danfoss’ Turbocor VTT Series Compressor was selected as the winner of the 2015 AHR Expo Product of the Year during the Innovation Award ceremonies on Jan. 27 at the world’s largest HVACR event in Chicago, Illinois.
The new Danfoss VTT (Variable Twin Turbo) Series Compressor was chosen from among the top Innovation Award winners in 10 industry-related categories. Intended for commercial air conditioning or process cooling applications that require a high-efficiency solution, the innovative compressors qualified to compete for the top award by taking top honors in the “Green Building” category.
Widely recognized as one of the most prestigious awards in the HVACR industry, the awards program was designed to recognize the most innovative and useful products among the thousands on display at the AHR Expo. Entries submitted by exhibitors each year are judged on the basis of innovative design, application, market impact and value to the HVACR industry. The awards are also meant to promote and encourage new product development in these ten major categories:
- Building Automation
- Green Building
- Indoor Air Quality
- Tools & Instruments
The entry fees from the AHR Expo Innovation Awards are donated to a local charity in the city where the Expo is being held. This year a total of $16,400 was donated to Metropolitan Family Services, the Chicago area’s longest serving human services agency. Metropolitan will use this contribution to purchase a boiler and HVACR components for the Family Services DuPage Community Center that serves several thousand families in need.
“Danfoss and all the winners of the AHR Expo Innovation Awards deserve special recognition for their efforts to lead the way in achieving greater energy efficiency,” said Clay Stevens, president of International Exposition Company, which produces and manages the AHR Expo. “The Innovation Awards program gives back to the industry in so many ways.”
AHR Expo is now endorsed by 38 leading HVACR industry associations and is co-sponsored by ASHRAE and the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute.
