Distributor TF Solutions joined forces with Fujitsu General Air Conditioning, along with Pump House and Conex Bänninger >B< MaxiPro, to supply and install a new VRF air conditioning system at The Donna Louise Children’s and Young People's Hospice in Staffordshire.
Taking its name from a young local girl, Donna Louise Hackney, who sadly died from a life-limiting condition at the age of 16, The Donna Louise was first registered as a charity in 1999. Fundraising allowed for a community nursing team to be established in 2002 and in August 2003 the doors opened on a purpose-built and fully equipped hospice.
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.
