Daikin Trailblazer Air Cooled Scroll Chillers: Changing the Way You Think About Air Cooled Chillers

Daikin Trailblazer air cooled scroll chillers are feature
rich, with industry leading performance and a low installed cost. Combine this with high operating efficiency and ease of maintenance and these reliable 30 to 180-ton chillers provide big benefits for small to mid-sized buildings as well as mission
critical applications like data centers and hospitals. With
features typically found on more expensive chillers, why settle for anything but a Daikin air cooled chiller?

Reliable - Trailblazer is built on the solid foundation of reliability and robust design of Daikin’s AGZ chiller product.
- Exceeds ASHRAE Standard 90.1 2013 & FEMP 2012 standards.
Quiet - Sound pressure ratings as low as 60 dBA, without any optional acoustic treatment.
Low cost of ownership - Trailblazer’s low installed cost, combined with high operating efficiency and ease of maintenance provide the lowest total cost of ownership.
Ideal for retrofit - Compact unit footprint can save installation space & costs.
Mission critical applications - Trailblazer was designed to handle the demanding requirements of data centers and hospitals. The RapidRestore™ feature along with the high evaporator leaving water temperature capability (65˚F) makes Trailblazer the ideal choice.
Responsible refrigerants - The Trailblazer chillers use R-410A, which has no ozone depletion potential and no
phase-out schedule .
Easy to integrate - Our Open Choices™ feature allows the unit controls to easily integrate with your choice of building automation system using LonTalk®, BACnet® or Modbus® open protocols.
LEED® points - All dual circuit models qualify for LEED EAC - 4 for Enhanced Refrigerant Management worth 2 points.
