Mitsubishi Electric Hybrid VRF System
With Sustainable Cooling Solution
At Western Bay of Plenty District Council Offices
Technicool Refrigeration has successfully concluded a transformative project at the Western Bay of Plenty District Council offices in Tauranga. The initiative focused on replacing outdated air conditioning units that utilized R22 refrigerant with a more sustainable and innovative alternative.
The decision to replace the aging air conditioning units stemmed from the Council’s commitment to environmental stewardship and the phase-out of R22 refrigerant due to its adverse impact on the ozone layer.
The chosen solution was the installation of a Mitsubishi Electric Hybrid VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) System. This system, renowned for its unique 2-pipe heat recovery design, marked a departure from traditional refrigerant-based systems by incorporating water between the Circuit Controller and all indoor units. This revolutionary approach not only enhances efficiency but also significantly reduces environmental impact.
What sets the Hybrid VRF System apart is its reliance on water as opposed to traditional refrigerants. This distinctive feature maximizes cost efficiencies while ensuring the safety of occupants. By minimizing the use of refrigerants and replacing them with water, the Hybrid VRF system aligns with global efforts to mitigate the environmental impact of synthetic refrigerants.
The installation of the Mitsubishi Electric Hybrid VRF System at the Western Bay of Plenty District Council offices not only reflects Technicool Refrigeration’s commitment to innovation but also underscores the Council’s dedication to sustainable practices. The Hybrid VRF System offers a dual benefit of cost-effectiveness and environmental responsibility, making it an ideal choice for organizations seeking a balance between operational efficiency and ecological consciousness.
