Daikin Applied has launched a high efficiency air-cooled scroll chiller series with R-32 refrigerant. This is an extension of the company’s Bluevolution range. The new Air-cooled chiller range (EWAT B) will be available for cooling only and heat recovery applications from 80 kW up to 700 kW cooling capacity at nominal conditions.

Compared to the previous R-410A range, seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) is improved by 10%. The chiller range fully complies with the efficiency requirements imposed by current European Legislation (Ecodesign Lot21). The global warming potential (GWP) is 675, which is only one third of the commonly used refrigerant R-410A.

Thanks to the lower flammability classification (R-32 refrigerant falls into category class A2L in ISO817), it can be safely used in many applications including chilled water systems. As a single component refrigerant, R-32 is also easier to recycle and reuse, another environmental benefit.
