Daikin Applied has introduced its Rebel rooftop air handler. The company says the Rebel offers engineers and building owners a customizable chilled water solution featuring segment-leading technologies that provide for a complete single-sourced system. Combined with either Pathfinder® or Trailblazer® air-cooled chillers, users capitalize on the 22+ IPLV performance of an air-cooled chiller for a complete system solution to match application needs.
Energy efficiency is at the core of the Rebel’s design, gaining up to 15% energy savings from Rebel’s standard direct drive airfoil supply and ECM fans. The factory-installed energy recovery wheel captures and recycles lost energy, increasing the HVAC system efficiency and reducing the mechanical cooling capacity by as much as 30% to help exceed AHRI and ASHRAE 90.1-2016 standards, according to officials.
