Four 19kW three-phase simultaneous multi systems from Fujitsu Air Conditioning (UK) have been installed at Woodhouse Grove School in West Yorkshire. The units were fitted in the Morton Hall – an old swimming pool building complete with glass Atrium, that now serves as a multi-use sports hall, exhibition space and examination room.
The new system comprises four ARYG72LHTA indoor and four AOYG72LRLA outdoor units, which will be used to heat and cool the hall, which previously suffered from overheating in the summer and a lack of warmth in winter. The project was completed in 2018 by Bradford-based JDR Cooling & Energy.
Faced with keeping disruption at a residential care home to a minimum during an ACR installation, air conditioning and heating specialist Castle Climate Control (CCC) chose Conex Bänninger’s flame-free >B< MaxiPro fittings as the jointing solution.
Much of the pipework had to be routed within and around residents’ rooms and in loft areas, with working in often restricted spaces another challenge.
Ed Whinyates of Stonegrove Refrigeration looks at some of the things to consider when it comes to choosing a condenser.
A refrigeration system needs a condenser in some form or another. Traditionally, the application of an air cooled condenser was preferred for small to medium installations, with evaporative condensers the preferred choice for medium to large installations. However, as technology has developed, this is now not always the case.
