Daikin's 3rd generation of air-cooled screw chillers
The new single screw compressor is one of the main and most interesting features in Daikin 3rd generation of air-cooled screw chillers.
The new design includes a new screw profile, which ensures the best performance with both R1234ze and R134a refrigerants. The result of this new developement is a substantial extension of chillers’ cooling capacity. That does not sacrifice efficiency and compactness, though. Infact, the new compressor design keeps chillers’ footprint relatively compact and still very efficient. In addition to this, the new design allows to comply with Ecodesign and also F-Gas regulations. In fact, R1234ze refrigerant, which has a GWP as low as 7, gives end users a green alternative to 134a.
