Providing chillers for a major university in Australia
Daikin recently supplied an air-cooled screw inverter chiller from the TZ range for major university located in Central Queensland, in Australia. The recently installed unit will provide cooling to the whole building.
Cooling capacity: 195 kW
About the project
The facility was built for the university with the purpose to provide training, skills, education, and workforce development for the manufacturing sector.
The air-cooled chiller supplied will serve the whole facility ensuring all the areas of the building will get the cooling needed to maintain the comfort standards that the university is supposed to provide.
Daikin was the preferred manufacturer for efficiency levels, outstanding part load capability, very quiet acoustic ratings, and then, very low noise emission levels.
For this project, a platinum efficiency inverter screw compressor unit was required, not only for the great overall efficiency levels, but also for the ability of Daikin inverter technology to make the unit as efficient as possible in any condition throughout the year.
The footprint of the unit, then, was also important, as the installation had to be done using the very limited space available.
About the product
The new air-cooled TZ Series with Daikin inverter driven single screw compressor, is designed to enhance HVAC systems energy efficiency thanks to the inverter technology, which allows the chillers to provide the right amount of cooling the building needs, despite conditions might change throughout the day or the year. Another important aspect in this project was keeping noise emissions from the HVAC system as low as possible, which was guaranteed using a low noise configuration – the chiller was selected with low noise fans – to ensure it could meet the requirements.
Besides energy efficiency, low noise emissions and compact footprint, also great reliability was ensured with the TZ Series. In fact, Daikin has a proven track record of supplying very reliable single screw units, as this technology has been successfully used for decades now, no matter the type of project.
The screw inverter compressors used by Daikin are entirely in-house designed and manufactured. That allows total control by Daikin over reliability and quality of the component itself. Daikin’s screw inverter compressor, differently from other screw solutions, uses one main screw meshing with twin star rotors to produce volume matching the compression cycle. Due to the main rotor, balanced in both radial and axial direction, the compressor bearing has extremely high reliability. Therefore, its life span can be longer than other screw compressors. The single screw compressor, then, has only three moving parts. As a result of that, it reduces the possibility of failure, keeps operation costs low and ensures great reliability.
