DENMARK: Daikin’s new VRV air conditioner using lower GWP, mildly flammable refrigerant R32 will be available in 4, 5 and 6hp sizes, it has been revealed.
Full details of the the Japanese air conditioning manufacturer’s VRV 5 S-series were presented to guests at its European VRV Summit in Copenhagen’s Øksnehallen (Ox hall), the city’s former central cattle market, now an exhibition and conference venue.
This latest addition to Daikin’s Bluevolution range has been developed and specifically designed for R32 refrigerant. It features a new three-row heat exchanger which contributes to SEERs of up to 8.2 and SCOPs of 5.1. Meanwhile, sound pressures are down to 39dB(A).
Available in single- and three-phase versions, the new outdoor units can handle total pipe runs of up to 300m and a 50m lift.
Crucially, the new low height, single-fan VRV 5 S-Series measures only 870mm high x 460mm deep x 1,100mm long.
The compact size and the inclusion of four handles in the casing design allow for easy carrying.
New indoor units are available in five types: round flow cassette, fully flat cassette, slim concealed ceiling unit, concealed ceiling unit with medium ESP, and wall mounted unit.
