UK: A Fujitsu Airstage V-III VRF heat pump system, with 12 indoor cassettes, is providing heating and cooling to the Yum-Sa Thai restaurant in Putney, SW London.
The completed VRF air conditioning system comprised a V-III two-pipe condensing unit connected to nine 600mm x 600mm four-way compact cassettes and three 840mm x 840mm four-way slim-type cassettes. The installation in the restaurant, which opened in the autumn last year, was carried out by Essex-based Fan Rescue Ltd.
The cassettes were painted dark grey to match the interior design of the restaurant, prior to being suspended from its exposed ceiling. Pipework was laid to a painted cable tray, while the condensing unit was positioned on a concrete ledge in the venue’s underground car park, but with full exposure to the open atmosphere.
Prior to the project commencing, there was in-depth discussion and planning at Fujitsu’s training facility at Elstree, Hertfordshire, while James Richardson, Fujitsu General’s Technical Supervisor, also provided commissioning assistance once the installation was complete.
The 600m x 600m compact cassettes used in Yum-Sa were Fujitsu’s Airstage AUXB07GALH and AUXB12GALH models, which have capacities of 2.2kW and 3.6kW respectively. There was also an 840mm x 840mm AUXD24GALH cassette, featuring a slim, low height design due to the limited space inside a ceiling void.
