Now thatâ€™s a chiller!
Now That’s a Chiller!, the Guildford based Daikin Distributor, recently supplied the air cooled liquid chiller, for a prestigious office building in St. Mary's Axe, in the City of London.
The largest of 3 new Daikin chillers totalling 2.5 megawatts in cooling capacity, this 1,100kW, stepless single screw compressor machine, weighing in at 9,310kgs and some 10 metres in length, is the first megawatt plus chiller in the recently extended Daikin range, to be installed in the UK.
Two 725kW chillers were delivered and lifted into position some time earlier, but this model required a more substantial crane. Seen here against the backdrop of one of the most iconic buildings in the city, the Daikin chiller, manufactured in Rome, was successfully positioned at the first attempt, despite wind conditions being close to working limits in the confined space.
Daikin's greatly extended range, manufactured in Belgium and Italy, means that Space Air can now offer air cooled chiller models ranging from 5 to 1,920kW and water cooled models ranging from 13 to 1893kW nom. cooling capacity.
