Mr Williams appears in a short testimonial video about the installation of the City Multi Hybrid VRF system, which uses R410A refrigerant between the outdoor unit and a Hybrid branch controller box, but then uses water to transfer simultaneous heating and cooling around the building.
BS EN378 is currently best practice for refrigerant-based air conditioning when it is installed in a building with occupied spaces, such as hotels and smaller meeting rooms.
The standard will not only help minimise the risk to health should a refrigerant ever leak into a room, it is also part of the drive towards refrigerants with a lower GWP (global warming potential).
“As an industry, we face a step change to the type of refrigerants we can use in the coming years”, explains Mark Grayston on behalf of Mitsubishi Electric. “We can either use refrigerants with a lower GWP value, or use less of the existing ones and this is the approach we’ve developed with the HVRF”.
