EUROPE: Fujitsu has introduced what it claims is the industry’s smallest 18hp outdoor unit to its Airstage J-III L commercial multi air conditioners.
Launched in Europe this month, the 18hp unit joins the existing 8 to 12hp J-III models introduced in 2017, and the 14 to 16hp J-III L added in March 2018.
In addition to its small size, the 18hp model achieves sound levels as low as 79dB. A low noise mode can reduce operating sound levels to a maximum of 70dB. This is achieved thanks to a new, larger 570mm fan design and the inclusion of a large capacity scroll compressor
It also requires 18% less refrigerant charge compared to Fujitsu’s existing model, to comply with EN-378.
New high density heat exchangers help keep the depth of the outdoor units to 480mm. In all, the installation area has been reduced by approximately 45% compared to existing models.
It can accommodate up to 42 indoor units.
