Daikin Applied Magnitude Chiller
Daikin Applied
Magnitude® WME chiller

Serviceability features: Magnitude’s oil-free, magnetic bearing design uses direct-drive motor and shaft for increased reliability with infinite life – no bearing wear surfaces, gears, or slide valves. Soft start feature reduces mechanical and thermal stresses and maintenance for increased motor life. The HMI control screen utilizes SiteLine Controls, providing real-time analytics for energy optimization, IAQ, and sustainability. Digital controls monitor chiller operating status providing fault protections. Adjustable HMI panel and compact unit footprint enables easy servicing accessibility.

Noise-reduction features: Magnitude chillers utilize magnetic bearings, which offers an inherently quiet design – these chillers’ sound levels are tested in accordance with AHRI Standard 575.

IAQ equipment supported: WME uniquely meets IAQ demands with inverted duty operation and low condenser entering water temperature savings. Allowing the chiller to accept condenser entering water temperature below the evaporator leaving water temperature can eliminate the need for a waterside economizer. Economizer elimination simplifies pressurization control – essential in reducing humidification and maintaining quality air. Humidity levels can mean life or death in a hospital, as consistent air temperature and humidity levels mitigate bacteria and infectious disease spreading.

Thermostat compatibility: Requires a special thermostat.

Replacement parts compatibility: Some shared parts and some unique parts.

Additional features: Magnitude uses VFDs, magnetic bearings, and advanced controls for the best uptime capabilities in the industry – RideThrough® and RapidRestore®. For mission critical facilities, power loss means loss of cooling. RapidRestore produces industry-leading startup and fast-loading times, restarting in 20 seconds after power resumption, then restoring 80% cooling load capacity in 75 seconds. RideThrough, Daikin’s unique power trip resilience technology for WME models, allows chillers to maintain operation even during power loss up to 17 seconds.

Warranty information: Warranty options for refrigerant, parts, unit parts, and labor, and extended versions for each are available.

Special installation requirements: Magnitude has standard installation requirements with nothing unique compared to other chillers in the same segment.

The variable-capacity performance of the ISHPC will promote its use in this type of application.

Thermostat compatibility: Manufacturer did not specify.

Replacement parts compatibility: Some shared parts and some unique parts.

Additional features: The category-leading innovation of the ISHPC resides in four critical areas: 1) the use of inverter technology for precise and efficient response to load demand; 2) low ambient/high performance heating; 3) modularity of design; and 4) inventory-ready availability. Performing in both comfort and process cooling applications, LG VRF systems allow the ISHPC to operate in low ambient cooling (to 5°F) applications without the need for costly options or system additions to the basic configuration.

Warranty information: One-year all parts and three-year compressor limited parts only warranty. Available to purchase are extended limited parts only warranties that can extend the parts only coverage to 5,6,7,8,9 and 10 additional years. There is not a labor coverage warranty available from the LG at this time.

Special installation requirements: The modularity of design allows chiller plants to be assembled per individual project requirements. Engineers are afforded a cost-effective, properly sized solution compared to the challenges associated with fixed-capacity, fixed-frame chillers.

Nortek Air Solutions FANWALL Air Handler
Nortek Air Solutions
FANWALL® air handler and replacement fans

For retrofit applications and new construction

Serviceability features: Breathe new life into existing air handlers with FANWALL retrofit. Each fan can pass through most single-width doors, and each cube can be knocked-down for tight installations. Reduce maintenance costs with no belts or sheaves to change or bearings to grease. Save space with FANWALL arrays that can be applied in both vertical and horizontal airflow arrangements and save up to 50% in space and cabinetry.

Noise-reduction features: The acoustical benefit of FANWALL arrays is the low-frequency sound reduction of its smaller more efficient fans. Each backward inclined airfoil fan is custom designed and manufactured to the job’s design criteria. The optimum use of smaller, more energy-efficient direct-drive fans improves energy efficiency. The patented Coplanar Silencer® that attenuates sound within each cube often eliminates the need for sound attenuators and their associated static pressure penalty and costly concrete inertia pads.

IAQ equipment supported: Building owners who upgrade to a FANWALL array can increase airflow to applications where sufficient airflow was previously a challenge. An array can easily replace (within the same footprint) a single or dual fan system with an array of smaller more efficient fans. The FANWALL array produces a uniform piston of air that better utilizes the face area of filters and coils for increased life and capacity.

Thermostat compatibility: Building automation controls or motor control center.

Replacement parts compatibility: Shares replacement parts with other models.

Additional features: In many cases, access limitations are a barrier to a fan or air handler replacement because replacement cannot be accomplished without the time and expense of a major tear-out and reconstruction project. A FANWALL system can minimize this and other barriers. Individual cubes can be navigated into tight spaces to avoid major demolition and reconstruction and provide flexibility in staging projects with significant access barriers.

Warranty information: Twelve-month warranty from startup or 18 months from shipment. Extended warranties are also available.

Special installation requirements: The modular design allows individual cubes to be navigated through a standard 3-foot door and assembled inside the existing air handler cabinet. This eliminates the need and associated cost of having a crane on-site.
