SWITZERLAND: Daikin has equipped two air-cooled chiller units jogging on reduced GWP HFO refrigerant R1234ze to CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Investigation, for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The two EWAH-TZ chillers with a total cooling ability of 1312kW have been for linear accelerator 4, also known as Linac4. This device is created to increase destructive hydrogen ions to higher energies and has been the supply of proton beams for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) since 2020.
The most powerful particle accelerator ever designed, the LHC sits in a tunnel 100m underground on the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland.
Daikin has been a husband or wife for the CERN lab considering the fact that 2012 delivering, commissioning and protecting a quantity of screw inverter, centrifugal and scroll chiller chillers with a full cooling capability of in excess of 31MW.
Linac4 is 86m lengthy and located 12m underneath floor. Beams started to be developed in 2013 and the milestone electricity of 160 MeV was arrived at in 2016, following the commissioning of all the accelerating structures. Linac4 replaced Linac2 (which experienced previously accelerated protons to 50 MeV) for the duration of the extensive shutdown of 2019–20.
Daikin chillers are also made use of in CERN’s facilities to provide cooling for data centres, but also for jobs such as the ISOLDE experiment, and for the air conditioning programs of the underground tunnel which dwelling the Massive Hadron Collider.
