No phase-out schedule, no ozone depletion potential

Positive pressure refrigerant = reduced contaminant risk
On-board refrigerant containment
Simpler, more cost-effective solution
No purge system required
Units ship with refrigerant
No recovery system required
Many Magnitude units earn 2 LEED points for Category
EAC 4, Enhanced Refrigerant Management

The Simplicity of Being Oil-Free

Standard Centrifugal Magnetic Bearing


+ Oil Heater YES NO

+ Oil Cooler YES NO

+ Oil Pump/Starter YES NO

+ Oil Reservoir YES NO

+ Oil Filter YES NO

+ Oil Piping/Valving YES NO

+ Oil Sensors/Controls YES NO

= More things to break, No concerns, no cost

more maintenance,

Oil-Free Magnitude Chiller Offers Sustainable Performance

Positive pressure, oil-free

design eliminates the
performance degradation due
to non-condensables and oil
contamination of the refrigerant

Real Savings in Real Jobs

One Crawford Condominiums

Portsmouth, Virginia

We saved 3,000 a month in electrical costs after replacing our old

chillers with two Daikin magnetic bearing chillers. And the units are so
quiet, the residents living directly below the chillers cannot hear them
Charles Twine, Vice President of the Crawford Residents Association

Real Savings in Real Jobs

Florida Community College,

North Campus
Jacksonville, Florida

We installed a 300-ton Daikin magnetic bearing centrifugal chillers as part

of an upgrade to our campus chiller plant and BAS system. The North
Campus reduced its electrical usage by 519,514 kWh in the first six
months. This chiller contributes 30 to 40% of our energy savings for the
entire system upgrade.
Mark Gandy, North Campus HVAC Facilities Manager

Magnitude Rapid Restore

Quickly restores cooling capacity in mission

critical facilities!

RideThrough - Beyond quick start

Compressor rotor never stops and re-
synchronizes during short duration power

Maximum Fast Loading Minimum

Compressor Time to 80% RideThrough
Start Time* Load* Time
WMC 43 sec 120 sec NA
WME 500-700 60 sec 75 sec 5 sec**
* Time after power is restored after a power failure
** Power Loss Duration
Times may vary slightly based on system conditions at the time of power failure and at the time of power
WME requires separate controls UPS for Rapid Restore and Fast Loading
Magnitude Chillersa Great Choice for

Areas with high electric rates

Immediate savings and quick payback
Sound-sensitive environments
Its the quietest chiller in its size range
Buildings with high lease rates
Small footprint means smaller equipment rooms
and more space available for leasing
Limited space for moving or install units
WMC models fit through standard 4 wide doors

Ideal for Retrofit
Compact size of the Magnitude chiller makes it
ideal for retrofit and replacement
Stacked Shells = Smaller Footprint!
