Heat-recovery chillers introduced by Daikin

Daikin has introduced a heat-recovery series of its EUWA air-cooled water chillers. They have a single screw compressor using R407C and offer cooling capacities from 200 to 350 kW from four models. The range is likely to be increased soon to eight models with capacities from 100 to 550 kW. A high-efficiency brazed heat exchanger on the condenser side recovers enough energy to produce hot water at 25 to 55°C. The condenser has four inverter-controlled fans and four on/off fans to provide stepless control of condensing pressure. In cooling mode, cooling efficiency and capacity are optimised by minimising condensing pressure. In heat-recovery mode, the condensing pressure is raised to ensure maximum heat capacity on the heat-recovery condenser by reducing airflow across the air-cooled condenser. Connections are standard Victaulic joints to absorb vibration, reducing operating noise and thermal deflection. They can accommodate 8° of misalignment. These chillers can be incorporated into a Daikin integrated chiller network, which enables any four chillers of similar or different capacities to operate as if they are a single unit.

Grenfell is the building industry's Piper Alpha says CIBSE

The recent passage of the Building Safety Act is a welcome recognition of the fact that making safe buildings is a highly skilled operation says the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, endorsing the need for more effective regulation and a profound change in culture.

Underlying project-starts uptick indicates gradual recovery, Glenigan data suggests

  • 13% rise in detailed planning approvals against the preceding three months
  • 18% decline in main contract awards against the previous year
  • 9% increase in underlying starts during the three months to May

Glenigan has released the June 2022 edition of its Construction Review.
