MINNEAPOLIS – April 27, 2017 –– Daikin Applied has launched Navigator™, a screw compressor water-cooled chiller engineered with award-winning Variable Volume Ratio (VVR) technology.
Built on Daikin Applied innovation—VVR technology and water-cooled technology—Navigator gives you the power of efficiencies that meet or exceed ASHRAE 90.1-2016 levels and IPLV as low as 0.36. Navigator’s single VFD-driven screw compressor brings new levels of performance to applications that aren’t suited to traditional centrifugal chillers or magnetic bearing solutions.
No two buildings are alike and no two days serve up the same climate conditions, so engineers need technology with the flexibility and intelligence to help them design an HVAC solution optimized for any day or hour. Daikin’s portfolio addresses that customer need whether the system design calls for a water-cooled (Navigator) or air-cooled (Pathfinder®) chiller.
Recognized with Frost and Sullivan’s Manufacturing Leadership Award, VVR compression technology senses the precise amount of lift needed and adjusts the compression ratio on the fly to deliver optimal efficiency, regardless of ambient temperature or time of day. With VVR technology, customers don’t pay for over-compression, and get exactly the lift needed.
