Panasonic to Highlight Innovation at Chillventa 2018




• Combined gas and electric Hybrid VRF
• Introducing new CO2 Condensing Units
• Full Switch to R32

18 September 2018 - Panasonic has announced that it will be exhibiting at Chillventa in Nuremberg, Germany on 16-18th October 2018. Panasonic will be in Hall 4, booth 311 with an array of new and innovative heating, cooling and refrigeration solutions.

This year, Panasonic continues to celebrate its 100-year company anniversary and 60 years since the launch of its first air-conditioning product. Highlighting the expertise and high regard for environmental awareness that has brought Panasonic to this point, it will preview a range of innovative and sustainable solutions for the residential and commercial HVAC markets.

A key innovation that will be showcased at Chillventa will be the introduction of the new highly efficient Panasonic Hybrid GHP/VRF, which intelligently combines gas driven (GHP) and electric heat pump (EHP) technologies within one solution. Panasonic’s Hybrid VRF system steers heating and cooling in a new energy-saving direction, and is an ideal solution for high demand applications, such as hotels, apartment blocks and offices.
Panasonic will also introduce its new CO2 condensing units. Utilising naturally occurring CO2, the range offers a more sustainable option for small to medium capacity applications within the retail and food service sectors, such as small supermarkets, convenience stores and garage forecourts. Furthermore, the range is also ideally suited to provide refrigeration within the restaurant and hotel sectors.

Another big theme for the show is the utilisation of R32 refrigerant. Earlier this year, Panasonic promised a full switch to R32 for its RAC solutions. R32 has a 75% lower impact on global warming, when compared with previous systems using R410A. On the booth, Panasonic will be showcasing its newly designed RAC range including floor consoles, split, multi-split, cassettes and duct units. In addition, it will introduce the full PACi room air conditioning range for commercial use, all compatible with R32.

Tony Nielsen, UK Marketing Manager at Panasonic, explains how the full switch to R32 will benefit Panasonic customers; “Consolidating our portfolio to be compatible with R32 is an important step towards reducing the impact of air conditioning on our environment. For suppliers, it allows them to offer a more sustainable solution, and for installers it introduces the opportunity to offer a more energy-efficient and cost effective option to clients.”

Visitors to Panasonic (Hall 4, booth 311) can experience the full offering of heating and cooling solutions. This portfolio of new products demonstrates Panasonic’s commitment to leading the professional sector with the most comprehensive range of innovative solutions. Panasonic is dedicated to the development of technology which delivers excellence in sustainability, energy efficiency and performance, providing the market with modern and stylish products for residential, commercial and public sector applications.
