Magnetic-Bearing Chillers: Cooling without Friction
Magnetic-bearing chillers provide energy-efficient, quiet, and nearly maintenance-free operation.
Not all chillers are created equal, however, and large centrifugal chillers that use magnetic levitation bearings—including Daikin McQuay’s Magnitude, Johnson Controls/TROY’s YMC2, and Multistack’s MagLev—provide better overall energy efficiency than conventional, comparably sized chillers; they also require far less maintenance.
