Fujitsu has extended its UK product range with the arrival of Clint and Montair liquid chillers, and Fujitsu-branded equipment is expected to be available from the autumn.

The move is a result of the partnership established in 2017 between Fujitsu General and G.I Holding (GIH) and the joint development units will feature Fujitsu’s inverter technology.
Ian Carroll, Fujitsu chief operating officer, said: “This is an important joint product development for both companies, and we are excited about the new products coming through. We will combine the extensive technological resource available throughout the organisation and its partners with the high-quality level of support provided by the teams in the UK. The Clint and Montair combinations with new low GWP refrigerant options will provide the opportunity to meet specifications across a wide market.”

The initial offering covers both air-cooled and water-cooled liquid chillers, in heat pump and cooling only models. The air-cooled heat pumps will range from a compact 15 kW capacity model for small commercial applications using inverter scroll technology, through to 1.6 MW screw compressor models for large commercial and industrial projects, including options of producing hot water up to 60oC. Water-cooled heat pumps range from 49 kW to 1.25 MW, with cooling only variants using Turbocor centrifugal technology to extend ranges to 3.9 MW capacity.

Close control applications are being provided with Montair air-cooled, water-cooled and chilled water variations, covering a range of 9 kW to 155 kW capacity including both top and bottom discharge options. Integrated server cabinet cooling is also available.

Open protocol communication is included across the range, with remote web monitoring packages supplied as standard on Turbocor models.  Dry coolers, hydronic modules and remote condensers complete the line-up.

Pre and post-sales product support will be co-ordinated by Fujitsu’s UK technical team, with product training courses to be announced soon.
  • More than 100 people attended Fujitsu’s open day in Elstree yesterday, which gave visitors the opportunity to learn more about the decision to enter the chiller sector, as well looking at the manufacturer’s VRF product and new partner schemes. The event also marked the 15th birthday of the original J-Series, hailed by Fujitsu as the original mini VRF, and there were further details of additional R32 RAC and PAC equipment scheduled to arrive this year. TQ Environmental, JAVAC, A-Gas and Advanced Engineering supported the day, alongside Fujitsu distribution partners.
