Daikin Applied has developed its redefined Pathfinder. The company says this makes it the first air-cooled chiller with variable volume ratio technology, allowing for greater customization. Rivaling the efficiency of water-cooled chillers, officials claim the newly upgraded Pathfinder is also equipped with new variable speed technology, offering easier maintenance and improved part-load performance.

Pathfinder’s configurability allows customers to define their project and have their equipment built to their precise requirements. Ultimately, they will only invest in the performance and features they need, leading to cost savings and increased efficiency. The new compressor automatically adjusts to job conditions, further optimizing Pathfinder’s performance no matter where it’s operating. The configurability and array of options also allow Pathfinders to achieve high part-load efficiencies and lower the sound levels.
