LG has launched what it describes as the industry’s first compact R32 VRF range, the Multi V S.
Designed for residential buildings and small to medium-sized offices, the manufacturer says the first single-fan R32 VRF solution to enter the market makes installation possible in smaller spaces, due to a 40% reduction in volume and 23% reduction in weight. In addition, the Multi V S requires 4.3kg of R32 compared to the previously required 5.6kg on the R410A version.
The 4, 5 and 6 HP outdoor units, which can be connected to up to 13 indoor units, are available now.
LG says efficiency has not been compromised by the reduction in size, due to the R1 hybrid scroll compressor, while the internal heat exchanger includes enhanced corrosion resistance with LG’s Black Fin technology, providing stronger protection to air pollution and salt contamination.
LG’s Thain Gummer said: “Multi V S, being the smallest and most lightweight of the R32 refrigerant-fueled compact sized VRFs, allows high flexibility during installation, but still boasts high efficiency with R32 refrigerant - features that stand out to installers and building consultants when choosing VRF solutions. Starting with the launch of this new product, LG will continue to lead the transformation of the HVAC industry to deliver greener solutions with best-in-class performance through our innovative technologies.”
