Clivet’s Thunder cracks R290 heat pump market

ITALY: Clivet Thunder is a new air-cooled reversible heat pump equipped with inverter scroll compressors specifically designed for use with R290 refrigerant.

Available in capacities from 40kW to 85kW, Thunder is said to achieve outstanding performances for medium temperature applications, with a seasonal efficiency in heating SCOP W35 up to 4.7 and SCOP W55 up to 3.6.

Clivet guarantees heating, cooling and domestic hot water production up to 75°C and an operating range in heating from -20°C to +42°C ambient. Its high temperature makes it suitable for use both in new buildings and in refurbishment projects. 

Available in three acoustic levels, the unit is designed in full compliance with European safety standards, with additional safety measures, such as the ATEX gas leak detector sensor and extraction fan, installed as standard. 

Up to six units can be hydraulically connected in parallel and up to 16 units can be managed in a local network. Clivet claims the highest power/footprint ratio on the market for this type of product due to the possibility of close installation between several modules.

Combinations can also take place between units of different power ratings, and the system obtained by combining several modules retains the strengths of the single module but multiplies its advantages.
