Edison Awards Recognizes Danfoss for Product Innovation

Danfoss has been voted a Bronze Winner in the Edison Awards, a program that honors innovation and excellence in the development to new products and services. The awards were presented at The Capitale in New York City during a ceremony attended by senior executives.

“Our judges recognized the Danfoss Turbocor VTT compressor as an innovator out of the many products in its category,” says Frank Bonafilia, executive director of the Edison Awards. Danfoss was recognized as part of the program’s Energy & Sustainability category.

Intended for water-cooled chillers and with capacities of 350 tons per compressor, Danfoss Turbocor VTT (Variable Twin Turbo) compressors are oil-free, variable speed, magnetic bearing centrifugal compressors ideal for commercial air-conditioning or process cooling chillers reaching up to 1,000 tons or more. The Turbocor VTT series introduces IntraFlow, a patent-pending technology that improves efficiency and provides a stable operating range while simplifying capacity control. It also enables chiller manufactures to help end users to save money and meet their targets to reduce CO2 emissions.

Because Danfoss Turbocor compressors are frictionless, with no wearing parts, the compressors maintain performance over time, allowing end users to experience energy savings and lower maintenance costs compared with traditional lubricated systems.

Danfoss Turbocor VTT compressors were previously named the 2015 AHR Expo Product of the Year. Danfoss was also awarded in 2015 the Innovative Star of Energy Efficiency by the Alliance to Save Energy for its Turbocor technology.

President of Danfoss Turbocor Compressors Ricardo Schneider, who received the Edison Award, says, “It is a honor to be recognized among other innovative companies and leaders, representing the teams around the globe that bring solutions to customers’ problems. With this award, we celebrate and thank our customers, our partners, for their continued innovation and leadership in bringing Turbocor compressors to the market.”

The ballot of nominees for the Edison Awards was judged by a panel of more than 3,000 business executives including past award winners, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science, and medical.

In addition to the Awards Gala, the annual Edison Awards program encompassed a full-day Meet the Innovators Forum and the Innovators’ Showcase, which offered guests a hands-on experience with many of the winning products.
