Panasonic adds hydronic option to PACi system

EUROPE: Panasonic has introduced an R32 PACi water heat exchanger option for packaged air conditioning systems.

This new solution is said to offer an efficient alternative to existing boiler systems for small commercial spaces such as retail projects and offices. 

The R32 PACi water heat exchanger is a space-saving unit at only 205mm in depth, and at only 27kg, the compact unit is described as being quick and simple to fit, even by just one person. 

It also has two installation options: floor-standing and wall-mounted. Wall-mounted installation only requires two screws, ensuring fast fix and helping to improve project completion schedule. 

The unit is said to be designed for ease of maintenance, with convenient direct access to the electrical box once assembled. 

The R32 PACi water heat exchanger offers a maximum piping length of 90m.
