It’s a new day in the realm of chiller technology.
The YMC2 chiller’s revolutionary design reduces both initial and long-term operating and maintenance costs. The proven integrated YORK chiller design offers an optimized initial purchase price for the YMC2 chiller. Because of its exceptional efficiency, the YMC2 chiller uses less energy, which results in lower operating costs.The YMC2 chiller can also promise lower maintenance costs. With magnetic-bearing technology, there are fewer moving parts to wear down and require replacement. When you take into account the YMC2 chiller’s competitive initial cost, plus its lower operating and maintenance costs, this means you get a truly exceptional lower total cost of ownership.
Space is known for the absence of sound and, thanks to a design that features fewer moving parts, so is the YMC2 chiller.
The YMC2 chiller’s permanent magnetic motor eliminates the noise that comes from mechanical contact. This results in a sound level lower than any water-cooled centrifugal or screw chiller on the market — as low as 70 dBA at AHRI-575 full-load standard conditions, the volume of a typical vacuum cleaner.In fact, the human ear perceives the YMC2 chiller as about half as loud when compared to competitive chillers. Our permanent-magnet motor
with active magnetic-bearing technology eliminates driveline sound. Variable speed drive and our OptiSound™ also help reduce noise,making the YMC2 chiller ideal for sound-sensitive locations such as museums, theaters or auditoriums.
The versatility to perform under demanding conditions
The YMC2 chiller features an unequaled range of operation, allowing continuous performance under conditions that would normally shut down other chillers.
Higher ECWT – Stable Operation
The YMC2 chiller is prepared to handle unforeseen transients.
This ability is valuable for almost any application. The YMC2 chiller is designed so that if temperatures rise from the tower water,it will continue to stay online and won’t surge and shut down.Competitive units in a similar situation require the equipment to cycle, potentially losing temporary control of the needed cooling.
Lower ECWT – Real-World Operation
The YMC2 chiller can accept lower entering condenser water temperature and, in turn, produce more tons of cooling. In less versatile chillers, this situation of lower ECWT may require a long wait before the unit can be turned back on. An example of this capability in practice is in a multiple-chiller plant where you have a less efficient chiller that you want to keep off-line as long as possible to keep your plant efficiencies as high as possible. The YMC2 chiller can produce more tons to keep the other chiller off-line longer.
Extra-Low ECWT – Out-of-This-World Operation
The YMC2 chiller is able to operate with minimum entering condenser water temperatures below the leaving chilled water set point, sometimes referred to as inverted or upside down. It can operate stably with entering condenser water temperatures 30°F(16.7°C), below the leaving chilled water set point. Ratings are available down to a minimum of 36°F(2.2°C) entering condenser water. Because free-cooling isn’t so free anymore, the YMC2 chiller lowers costs by eliminating the need for a water-to-water heat exchanger and its accompanying expenses, such as piping controls and operation and maintenance costs.
