MHI adds R32 monobloc heat pumps to European range

JAPAN: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has added the new Hydrolution EZY series to its lineup of air-to-water heat pumps for the European market. 

This new line includes two models with capacities of 10kW and 14kW scheduled for release this winter.

The Hydrolution EZY series uses R32 refrigerant and is of monobloc design – the integrated water heat exchanger in the outdoor unit simplifying installation compared to the split-type systems. Improved anti-vibration technology, achieved through material enhancements and other innovations, reduces sound power levels to 60dB(A) in the 10kW model, even when running at full capacity. Additionally, the inclusion of a quiet mode, further reduces operational noise. 

These new ATW units also work effectively in a wider range of outside temperatures – from -25℃ to 43℃ – and can deliver 60℃ hot water even when the outside temperature is -25℃.
