Awarded with the Daikin COO Excellent Product Award 2022 for the R-32 Small Inverter Chiller

Daikin Applied Europe has been announced as the winner of the Daikin COO Excellent Product Award 2022 for the development and launch to market of the R-32 Small Inverter Chiller.

Every year Daikin Industries Ltd holds an event to award teams that made outstanding achievements in the previous year. This award recognizes how the teams at Daikin Applied Europe, thanks to a united effort, developed and launched in 2021 another outstanding product for the Applied sector - the R-32 Small Inverter Chiller.

About the R-32 Small Inverter Chiller

This product extended in 2021 the Daikin Bluevolution range of products, introducing  a new Air-Cooled chiller and heat pump Series delivering cooling and heating capacities from 16 kW to 90 kW.

The extended capacity range, the compactness, the wide operating envelope, and the high energy efficiency, are the main strengths of this new Series, which completed the Daikin R-32 product family for the Commercial and Industrial Air Conditioning segment.

The Series stands out for providing the best efficiency levels in the market, both in cooling and heating mode, and the lowest direct and indirect CO2 emission levels. That makes the new Small Inverter Chiller a great environmentally friendly choice, also thanks to the use of R-32, which is known for being a low GWP and a sustainable refrigerant.

Quiet operations, reduced footprint, advanced connectivity, and wide operating limits make the new R-32 Small Inverter Chiller an ideal solution for a wide range of HVAC projects, from comfort to process applications.

The cooling only version provides chilled water from 25 ˚C down to -15 ˚C and ambient temperature operation from -20 ˚C up to 45 ˚C as standard. An optional high ambient temperature kit allows the unit to operate in outside ambient temperatures above 45 °C and up to 52 °C.

Heat pumps (also available in the split version) are designed to cope with an extended ambient temperature range of -20 ˚C to 35 ˚C, and can produce hot water up to 60 °C.

Notable among the outstanding features offered as standard by this Series are the Daikin design DC-Inverter Scroll compressors, the optimized Cu-AI Coils and the brazed plate heat exchangers. Also included within the unit are high efficiency Daikin design DC-Inverter fans with a selectable silent mode, and an inverter pump kit with both low and high lift variants.

Daikin has also worked to offer the most advanced features in terms of connectivity and monitoring.

The Smart Control solutions for this Series are specifically designed to reach the highest level of performance and system flexibility.

The R-32 Small Inverter Chiller is able to communicate with any external BMS and offers the Master and Slave option as a standard – allowing to sequence and connect up to 4 units with one of them selected as Master unit.

The new Series also stands out for its enhanced ability to connect to the Internet through the Internet of Things. In fact, a dedicated Mobile Configuration App can be used to make commissioning extremely easy and quick.

The Smart Control Solutions for the new Small Inverter Chiller also include Daikin on Site, the remote monitoring and system optimization within the Daikin proprietary cloud platform, which ensures full control of the units through detailed monitoring, online alarm troubleshooting and remote control.

Leaders in the development of R-32 technology

The new R-32 Small Inverter Chiller strengthened Daikin’s leadership in the design and development of products featuring R-32 refrigerant.

In 2018, Daikin was an early innovator and made history by introducing the first R-32 refrigerant chillers, followed by free-cooling scroll units the same year, and the R-32 Heat Pump in 2020.

Today, Daikin is the brand with the highest number of R-32 installations in the world, as a testimony to the experience, the knowledge, the quality, and the reliability of its R-32 products.

With the introduction of the new Small Inverter Chiller, Daikin continues leading the way towards innovative and sustainable solutions for the Air Conditioning sector.
