    The Golf Channel hit a hole in one with the revitalization of part of its Orlando campus. The channel turned to Walker Design LLC to create a high-functioning, multi-use space within a 1,200-square-foot area. The space holds conference and training areas plus a genius bar. It has fully integrated audio/visual technology, integrated writable surfaces for informal gatherings and multiple movable seating options that can house 150 occupants. The floor and ceiling patterns reflect lively, pixelated textures to contrast with and balance the static walls. Photography by Chad Baumer Photography.

Daikin Applied recognized for its VVR technology

Daikin Applied Americas has been recognized as a Manufacturing Leadership Award winner by Frost & Sullivan for outstanding achievement with its Variable Volume Ratio (VVR) technology.

As HVAC technologies evolve to better deliver higher efficiencies in building performance, lower cost, and less energy yielding a smaller carbon footprint, one problem has long challenged engineers: HVAC systems are often pressed to meet a building’s occupancy demands for varying conditions. Daikin embraced and solved this challenge with the design and implementation of Variable Volume Ratio (VVR) technology in the new Pathfinder® air-cooled chiller.

With new VVR technology, the HVAC chiller’s compressor senses the amount of lift needed in any given moment, and adjusts the compression ratio automatically. The result is that the compressor works only as hard as it needs to; and customers don’t pay for over-compression which is likely occurring 95% of the time. VVR technology delivers optimal efficiency at any operating condition.

“VVR technology allows Daikin to offer our customers more flexibility, higher efficiency and a better overall chiller product.” says Rob Landes, chiller product manager, “Each individual customer’s needs are different and equally important; with VVR we can address each need in a highly reliable way.”

The Manufacturing Leadership Awards, now in their 13th year, honor companies and individual leaders that are influencing the future of global manufacturing. Manufacturing leaders have demonstrated achievement in a wide range of categories engaging in innovative projects to distinguish themselves from competition. Winners are chosen by a panel of expert judges for results that have delivered clear and compelling value, return on investment, and other tangible outcomes.

Daikin Applied will be recognized at the 13th Annual Manufacturing Leadership Awards Gala, which is to be held on the last day of the Manufacturing Leadership Summit, June 12-14, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa in Huntington Beach, CA.
