British isles: Mitsubishi Electric has added a vertical branch controller to offer greater style adaptability of design and style for its Town Multi Hybrid VRF air conditioning system.
1st launched in 2013, the Hybrid VRF brings together VRF and chiller technologies. It takes advantage of R32 refrigerant concerning the out of doors condensing unit and an indoor Hybrid Branch Controller (HBC). From right here, the clever process uses water amongst the HBC and the individual indoor air conditioning models, nevertheless nevertheless delivers two-pipe heat recovery.
The Vertical HBC is accessible as a 6-port key unit, with new compact 8 or 16-port sub HBC choices. These make the procedure a substantially extra practical answer for a wider selection of programs. Valves, pumps and the heat exchanger are all contained in the Vertical HBC permitting for phased, modular set up, building the Vertical HBC suitable for Cat A to Cat B applications and easing routine maintenance regimes.
An all round method can be expanded applying more horizontal sub-HBC’s permitting up to 50 indoor models to be equipped by just one out of doors condenser. The Vertical HBC contains intuitive load altering movement regulate valves and inverter pushed pumps.
Made with complete overall flexibility in brain, the crucial elements of the Vertical HBC’s are available from the front and at ground amount all through commissioning. The installation of more water-side ancillaries such as expansion vessel, drinking water filling loop and isolation valves are also a great deal easier as they are all positioned on the floor ground.
In addition, h2o piping can be commissioned right before the outdoor condensing device is even mounted.
With the sounds delicate components (for illustration refrigerant pieces, pumps, plate heat exchanger) all tucked into the vertical box, the new compact horizontal sub-HBC can be placed into any occupied place, without the need of the require of any additional attenuation or services space prerequisites. The flexibility of installation also indicates the models can be moved and tailored if an office environment space is reconfigured for the duration of its life span.
