Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Thermal Systems, Ltd. (MHI Thermal Systems) launched a line of single fan and multiple room outdoor unit air conditioners for buildings that use R32 refrigerant. Launched specifically for the European market, the systems will sell through Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air-Conditioning Europe, Ltd. (MHIAE).
The product lineup will include six models with capacity up to 4, 5, and 5.5 horsepower, each available in either the single-phase alternating current (AC) common in ordinary homes, or the three-phase AC used in factories and other facilities that consume a lot of electricity. As countries throughout the world are shifting to refrigerants with less environmental impact, such as R32. The highly anticipated product lineup will respond to the decline of R410A refrigerant usage.
R32 refrigerant has zero ozone depletion potential (ODP) and one-third of the global warming potential (GWP) of the conventional R410A refrigerant. This sustainable solution has attracted attention for its high heat transfer efficiency, as well as an excellent safety and environmental performance.
MHI Thermal Systems will focus on its sales and service for air conditioning equipment, including air conditioners for stores and offices, and building air conditioning systems.
