Mitsubishi Electric has launched a new Ecodan ground and water source heat pump system which it claims can deliver up to 960kW of renewable heating and water flow temperatures of up to 65°C.
The inverter-driven Ecodan CRHV monobloc heat pump can operate singularly, or be banked together to create a system that can modulate and cascade available units on and off to meet the load from a building.
The individual Ecodan units offer 60kW capacity and 16 units can be linked together to offer full multiple unit cascade control. In addition to being suitable for water-source application such as rivers and aquifiers, plus ground source, whether through slinkies or boreholes, the system can take waste heat from server cooling or industrial process cooling and use this as a heat source.
“We have designed the CRHV to offer as much flexibility as possible whether the application is ground source or water source, in a school, office, leisure centre or warehouse,” said James Timbs-Harrison, Mitsubishi Electric’s product marketing manager for heating systems.
“The fact that it can operate with heat sources from -5°C up to +45°C gives a level of flexibility that is normally only available with a bespoke system,” he added.
“Combine this with the advanced controls and quality levels that Mitsubishi Electric is renowned for and we believe that the CRHV will prove very successful.”
