New air-water heat pumps
ECOi-W AQUA-G BLUE by Panasonic
Panasonic Heating & Cooling Solutions presents its new ECOi-W AQUA-G BLUE reversible air-water heat pump, sustainable and highly efficient, ideal for large commercial, industrial or residential applications. Thanks to the application of R290, a natural refrigerant with a very low global warming potential (GWP) (3), this heat pump has less environmental impact compared to other refrigerants. It also offers exceptional performance, aligned with Panasonic’s vision to achieve a carbon-free society through the GREEN IMPACT plan.
Advanced Technology of the ECOi-W AQUA-G BLUE
This new range features a high seasonal performance value with a maximum SEER of 4.4 and a SCOP of 3.9 and an excellent energy efficiency rating of A++. Likewise, its operation in cooling mode allows a water outlet temperature of -15 °C, which guarantees an optimal operating temperature for any type of industrial process. At the same time, it also offers the ideal solution for heating, cooling and domestic hot water, achieving 70 °C outlet water temperature from 0 °C outside air temperature.
To enjoy a more reliable and efficient solution, the new range uses the exclusive compressor scroll technology. This new solution allows the ECOi-W AQUA-G BLUE range to offer the perfect balance between efficiency and quiet operation, with a minimum sound power level of only 79.9 dB(A) and a minimum sound pressure level of only 51 .9 dB(A). At the same time, for users who prefer it, the compressor can be optionally encapsulated and provide an additional level of noise reduction.
Panasonic offers a unique range of capacities available with R290 refrigerant and scroll compressor technology, with 4 sizes from 50 – 80 kW. In addition, the range can increase the capacity up to 480 (kW) by connecting up to 6 units in cascade. The units are fully customizable with various configuration options and will be available on the market in the fall of 2023.
Models and technical specifications of the ECOi-W AQUA-G BLUE
Panasonic Plug & Play
The range is compatible with Panasonic’s Plug & Play Cascade Control, which enables connection to Panasonic’s ECOi-W Cloud for real-time remote access to optimize service and maintenance functions.
To ensure the highest quality and provide maximum comfort, Panasonic includes special safety measures for the R290 refrigerant, including the incorporation of a ventilation system, an air/refrigerant separator and a sealed non-flammable electrical box.
Energy efficiency and sustainability with the ECOi-W AQUA-G BLUE
The ECOi-W AQUA-G BLUE range leads the industry in commercial air-to-water heat pumps with the natural refrigerant R290. R290 has a global warming potential of 3, which ho makes it an alternative solution for any commercial project.
It delivers excellent performance in line with Panasonic’s vision of a 0-emission society and with our GREEN IMPACT plan.
