Toshiba poised for UK R32 launch

MIRAI-ToshibaUK: Toshiba is poised to launch its first R32 air conditioner in the UK, offering the lower GWP refrigerant as an alternative to R410A.

Previewed at last month’s Mostra Convegno exhibition in Milan, Toshiba UK has said it will launch an R32 version of its MIRAI entry-level split in the second quarter of this year.

The high-wall residential inverter heat pump will be available in two versions – R410A and R32.

Boasting an A+ class in cooling and heating, the Mirai is expected to be available in five sizes from 1.5kW to 5kW.

Featuring a specially-coated aluminium fin coil to repel dust and improve efficiency, it is said to enable cooling operation down to -15ºC ambient and is suitable for server-room application Performance is further boosted by using Toshiba’s twin rotary compressor technology.
