Daikin Applied has introduced the first series of high efficiency air-cooled scroll chiller series with R32 refrigerant.

The new EWAT-B range  will be available for cooling only and heat recovery applications from 80 kW up to 700 kW cooling capacity at nominal conditions.
Compared to the previous R-410A range, seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) is improved by 10%. The chiller range fully complies with the efficiency requirements imposed by current European Legislation (Ecodesign Lot21).

The selection of R-32 minimises the environmental impact thanks to the lower Global Warming Potential in combination with high energy efficiency.

Daikin Applied says the new series will be available with two efficiency versions (Silver and Gold), combinable with three sound configurations (Standard, Low and Reduced) and providing full customisation on project-specific requirements.

An extensive list of options and accessories can be provided on request, such as the fully integrated hydronic kit for fixed flow or variable flow operation, partial or total heat recovery for sanitary hot water production and many other solutions.

The series is fully compatible with the Daikin on Site cloud-based platform, which offers remote monitoring, system optimization and preventative maintenance.

It also comes with Master/Slave functionality as standard, allowing the management of up to four units on the same system without the need for external control devices.

For more complex installations, Daikin Applied says it can offer the Intelligent Chiller Manager option, allowing energy optimisation of the system and, when necessary, full customisation of the control solutions to the specific installation’s needs.
