Why is part load efficiency important?

Part load efficiency is very important it comes to HVAC systems. It is well known that HVAC systems spend majority of operating hours at conditions outside of design. When looking at a typical cooling load profile, chillers mostly operate at part load. This results in different HVAC system components running at off-design operation. Therefore they must perform efficiently and reliably at these conditions too.

A chiller can only be considered efficient when it has the ability to also perform efficiently at part load. How can a chiller ensure part load efficiency?

 

Daikin valuable solution for part load efficiency

 

Daikin has historically delivered great performance efficiency and a great compressor plays a huge part of this.

Click here to find out how a Daikin compressor can provide high efficiency and reliability.

Daikin’s in-house single screw compressor is a highly efficient component by design. It integrates ground-breaking technologies such as Variable Volume Ratio and the refrigerant cooled Inverter technology. When it comes to efficiency, Daikin products are the right choice.

For seasonal efficiency, Daikin inverter technology can offer a solution all year round, by ensuring load adaptation to the building’s cooling demand. This allows compressors to adjust their capacity to the needs of the building throughout different seasons, making the unit both efficient at part load and full load. This in turn lowers the operations costs associated to energy expenditure and a short ROI.

3rd generation of air-cooled screw chillers

 

The single screw compressor is one of Daikin’s most important technologies; it is a flagship technology with over 20 years of installations and positive customer experiences.

Technology never stops evolving; Daikin’s 3rd generation of air-cooled screw chillers feature a completely redesigned single screw compressor.

For some time the market has been in need for a solution which operates at high efficiency at part load and full load, which will also be able to easily comply with Ecodesign regulations. The new compressor is the answer to the market’s need.

 

Test your chiller’s performance

 

Having highly efficient technology is s a great solution, but having the ability to test improves its performance even more.

Daikin Applied UK offers the opportunity to test equipment in a AHRI certified test chamber, which is independently verified and accredited to test to EN 14511:2013, ISO 9614:2009 and other major HVACR industry standards.

Air-cooled unit testing for the Eurovent can also be carried out in the facility. The climatic chamber offers chiller testing for both air-cooled and water-cooled units – up to 2,000 kW cooling capacity, supporting up to 30 fans, at ambient temperatures ranging from -15° C to 52° C, simulating Middle Eastern conditions. Combined with an extended voltage and frequency range, the configuration options provide the flexibility to simulate all applications in heating and cooling modes at both full and part load.
