Daikin Applied Sets New Standards in Chiller Technology

Introducing the new air cooled inverter screw chiller range

Daikin Applied are pleased to launch the EWAD-TZ B chiller range. The TZ B is the next generation of air cooled chillers with inverter screw compressor technology. An upgrade from the market leading TZ and CZ ranges, the TZ-B now covers cooling capacities from 170kW up to 1.1MW, offering outstanding energy performance across the range, with EER values up to 3.9 and ESEER values of up to 5.7.

“The upgraded TZ-B chiller builds on what is already a market leading product range offered by Daikin Applied. With the product developments we can offer even greater cost savings both in terms of reduced capital expenditure and energy usage for the end-user” says James Henley, Chiller Product Manager.

Building on its predecessor – the EWAD-TZ launched in 2013 – the TZ-B range combines a screw compressor design and integrated inverter technology with Variable Volume Ratio technology (VVR) along with the latest micro-channel condenser coil technology, pushing the boundaries of chiller design in order to meet the challenges of green building efficiencies and new legislation. The new highly advanced Daikin Applied TZ-B chiller adds to the extensive portfolio of market leading HVAC products, designed to meet a full range of applications while offering solutions that are more efficient, quieter and greener than ever seen before. Since the introduction of the first inverter driven chiller to the market, more than a decade ago, continual innovation has improved end-user efficiencies, while offering even greater flexibility.

With ever-tightening legislation on energy efficiency and CO2 emissions, business owners face a number of challenges when replacing cooling and climate management systems. Our challenge has been to deliver systems that are competitively priced and more versatile. As a manufacturer of both compressors and chillers Daikin Applied delivers optimum designs to meet the needs of the many different applications from comfort-cooling to process-cooling.

The unique screw compressor design with refrigerant cooled inverter technology has been combined with VVR, which maintains the highest compression efficiency. This advancement together with component selection optimisation and improved control logic offers even more advantages and greater reliability. The range has options for three efficiency levels and three sound levels enabling customers the ability to choose a bespoke solution that suits their needs.

The TZ B chiller range also incorporates a new micro-channel condenser coils, designed for high thermal efficiency while minimising pressure drops, with a construction that is typically 50% lighter and uses, on average, 50% less refrigerant when compared to a traditional copper-tube/aluminium-fin coil design.

Additional accessories also allow end users to further adjust the new system to their specific needs and extend the application range. These include rapid restart, a smart energy meter, total and partial heat recovery, variable speed pumps and master slave functionalities for multiple chiller applications.

Daikin Applied chillers are assembled and factory tested before shipment and all controls are pre-wired, adjusted and tested to offer an almost ‘plug and play’ unit, even for larger installations where high cooling capacities are needed.

The chillers have user-friendly smart controls and can be integrated easily with building management systems, allowing installers and business owners to monitor performance and identify faults more easily.

The TZ-B chiller range offers rapid payback, within one (process cooling) to three (comfort cooling) years of installation. During the chiller’s life-cycle, the outstanding energy efficiency of the Daikin Applied TZ-B will bring significant savings to the end user.

Whether used for new or refurbishment projects, the TZ-B chiller range is easy to service and maintain and comes with after-sales support from Daikin Applied Service, including advice on selection, installation, commissioning and operation. This together with various warranty options available, plus maintenance contracts on offer means business owners can rest-assure that they will have the support they need for their chiller system. A combination of leading market efficiency, customisation and technological innovation makes the TZ-B Air Cooled Chiller the best choice for any application.
