Providing cooling for an industrial plant manufacturing components for the automotive sector
Daikin has recently supplied an air-cooled screw inverter chiller unit from the TZ Series to meet the cooling needs of an industrial plant near Lisbon, in Portugal. The facility manufactures brakes and other components for the automotive industry.
Total cooling capacity: 307 kW
About the products and the project
For this project, the end user urgently needed a chiller that could replace the one that just stopped working. The TZ supplied managed to fully meet the process cooling needs of the facility, especially in terms of energy efficiency.
More about Daikin’s screw inverter technology and the project
As mentioned, efficiency was particularly important.
The screw inverter compressor chiller supplied by Daikin, successfully managed to meet and exceed the end customer targets. Not only thanks to the screw inverter compressor, entirely developed and manufactured by Daikin, but also thanks to Daikin on Site, the remote monitoring platform by Daikin.
With Daikin’s screw compressor, inverter technology is directly integrated in the compressor and is refrigerant cooled. All this doesn’t just help increasing reliability of the component, but also increases the efficiency of the compressor.
Then, the inverter guarantees great performances of the chiller at part load, which is another very relevant aspect in the project. In fact, despite industrial manufacturing plants might usually require constant cooling loads during the year, that does not mean the chiller will operate in the same conditions throughout the whole year.
Thanks to the inverter technology, the TZ chiller installed will be able to provide the needed cooling capacity and the highest energy efficiency levels at all times, all year round, despite ambient conditions might vary.
Another important tool in Daikin’s offers that has been particularly appreciated by the end customer, was Daikin on Site.
Daikin On Site (DoS) is a remote monitoring tool, that can provide 24/7 real time data, all year round, tracking chiller plants operations and their correct functionality. All this to allow plant owners to take preventive actions and avoid extra costs associated with breakdowns and downtime.
From a plant manager perspective, Daikin on Site can be beneficial in so many ways.
Every time there is an alarm, plant managers can easily recognize the problem and find the right solution. Through this platform they can also evaluate all the parameters in real time and if there is a need for any settings adjustment, they can act remotely. All of this allows to improve units’ efficiency and management, allowing to plan preventive maintenance and increasing systems’ reliability.
