One company that has frequently led the way when it comes to innovation, particularly when a green solution is required is Mitsubishi Electric. This is demonstrated by their latest breakthrough, the City Multi Hybrid VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow), a range of products that provide high performance along with lower Global Warming Potential [GWP]. This new system has all the benefits of VRF air conditioning, but in R32 format, which has not been achieved for large VRF systems in the UK, until now!
Mark Grayston, who is the product marketing manager for Mitsubishi’s air conditioning systems, stated “There have already been over 500 Hybrid VRF systems installed across Europe since we launched five years ago and we believe this R32 version will increase the market share for this unique VRF solution. Not only can Hybrid VRF help remove the need for leak detection, this R32 version delivers the low GWP benefits that customers are now searching for.”
The construction industry has struggled to come up with a viable solution to delivering high performance systems, while at the same time, complying with government legislation about F-Gas reduction and control. Mitsubishi has successfully developed a range of products which are efficient in operation yet offer an exceptionally green solution.
This advanced R32 refrigerant has a substantially reduced GWP of 675, two thirds less than R410A which has a GWP of 2,088. Mark Grayston added “We already have split air conditioning models on R32 and have introduced Hybrid VRF so that customers have a complete range of R32 solutions regardless of the building or situation. Coupled with this is the rapid price rises of R410A month by month which places a strain on traditional VRF systems so we want to ensure that both customers and installers not only have an alternative, but also get the added benefit of increased performance and advanced controls.”
