Toshiba Smart Cassettes running on R32 refrigerant have been installed at Bath and West Showground’s recently refurbished restaurant.

Its two-storey restaurant and bar has undergone a £1.2million refurbishment, and can now accommodate up to 850 seated guests. Renamed the Wessex Pavilion, the venue will now host large weddings, awards dinners, black tie events and conferences.
At the recent IOR best practice webinar for service engineers, Bill Barlow, OEM business unit director for Conex Bänninger, provided tips on how and where the manufacturer’s >B< MaxiPro press-fit range should be used for pipework joints, as well as the training available.
Where should the ACR industry aim its efforts to get the greatest ‘bang for its buck’ in terms of energy efficiency? The answer is the UK’s biggest manufacturing sector – food and drink – which is larger than automotive and aerospace combined. John Grenville, Managing Director of ECEX, explains.
All the statistics concerning food and drink manufacture point to a compelling case for boosting the sector’s energy efficiency and, therefore, a potentially enormous market for ACR installers and manufacturers.
Food and drink is a £95.4 billion turnover industry making it the single largest manufacturing sector in the UK with a Gross Value Added (the measure of the value of goods and services produced) of £21.9bn.
The ACR Journal talks to Hayley Nunn of Acorn Air Conditioning and Refrigeration, based in Bury St Edmunds.
A 960mm parapet wall almost halted plans to install air conditioning at luxury apartments in the redevelopment of a listed five-storey house in London’s Hyde Park.
Planning constraints meant that the heat recovery condensing units originally specified for the second, third and fourth floor apartments were too tall to go on the roof behind the parapet wall.
With air conditioning a key specification for the bedrooms and living areas, installers Hoveair (Building Services) recommended that the equipment specified manufacturer be changed to Daikin throughout the building.
A specialist hospital in Northumbria is using the Daikin on Site remote monitoring system to help makes sure its operating theatres and wards are available to care for seriously ill and injured patients across the region.
DoS has been developed by the Daikin Applied (UK) (DAPUK) applied chiller engineering design team, working closely with Daikin Applied Service (DAPS UK) to provide a browser-based real-time view of a site’s chiller and AHU operation.
