FLCH-8S: FriconUSA Large-Sized Chiller

The most common applications are for air conditioning in commercial buildings such as offices, schools, hospitals, hotels, malls, large shopping centers, airports, military bases, supermarkets, etc. For other applications see our Process Cooling Chiller line.


The new FLCH-8S: FriconUSA Large-Sized Modular Chiller, 8 Series Standard, air cooled condenser, is designed to meet most of the demands of medium to large range capacity for air conditioning. Its flexible innovative design allows the modules to work independently in capacities between 90 to 180 TR or grouped in different combinations of sizes to form one or various sets and meet capacity requirements up to 720 TR per set.


The quality, high efficiency up to 11.8 EER and exceptional IPLV, according to AHRI Standard 550/590, ensures our customers reliability, low operating cost and long life of the equipment


Standard Ambient Operating Temperature range: +110°F (+43.3°C) to +40°F (4.4°C)

Extended Ambient Operating Temperature range: +125°F (+51.7°C) to -35°F (-37.2°C)*

*See optional packages.

Application / Leaving Fluid Temperature Range:

+56°F (+13.3°C) to +18°F (-8.0°C)

By using Bitzer scroll compressors with external VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) on the first compressor, we convert this unit into an incredible VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) system resulting in a greater adaptability to the thermal load, stabilizing the fluid temperature and maximizes energy savings at partial load.

  • Tandem or trio configuration of Bitzer scroll compressors for better capacity control and high efficiency operation at part load.

  • Innovative modular design, aluminum frame with galvanized steel reinforcement, high efficiency condenser with strong structure and aluminum micro-channel coil, less weight and size; reduces transport, assembly and construction costs.

  • Built-in, 8” Victaulic connection manifold to easily join units and create a set, simplifying installation.

  • Eco-friendly; Micro-channel Air cooled condenser coil with reduced internal volume, along with the incorporated refrigerant distributor in our innovative, high-efficiency, Direct Expansion (DX) shell-U-Tube type evaporator with built-in refrigerant distributor, reduces the refrigerant charge between 25% to 30% compared to Chillers from similar efficiency.

  • Wide range of applications for water or glycol.

  • Quiet, high efficiency, external rotor motor, two speed, AC type axial fans for a better operation.

  • Built-in, high efficiency, shell-U-Tube type, double pass, Direct Expansion (DX) Evaporator with built-in refrigerant distributor provides a significant refrigerant charge reduction.

  • Electronic expansion valve, liquid sight glass and solenoid valve.

  • Mechanical flow switch.

  • Liquid drier with replaceable core and inlet ball valve.

  • Flexible joint on discharge line.

  • Refrigerant: R-410a

  • Factory pre-charged and individually tested.

  • UL 508A listed built-in electrical control panel.

  • Compressor and fans circuit breakers.

  • Voltage and phase-loss monitor with protection module for each compressor.

  • Control: 208-230V / 1PH / 60HZ

  • Power supply voltage 460V / 3PH / 60HZ with single point power connection.

  • Electronic Control System; compressors and condenser fans operational management: alarms, measurement of pressure and temperature variables, 132x64 LCD backlit built-in display with 6-button keypad. Alarm management: 3 alarms for compressors (overload, high/low pressure) and 1 overload alarm for condenser fans.

  • Fixed high and low pressure controls on each circuit.

  • BMS (Building Management System): ModBus protocol for supervisor or HMI (Human Machine Interface).

  • 1-year warranty
