Panasonic Expands Wide Range of HVAC Solutions with Natural Refrigerant R290


Panasonic Heating & Cooling Solutions continues to lead the charge in sustainable HVAC solutions by incorporating the natural refrigerant R290 across a wide range of its latest products, further bolstering its commitment to eco-conscious innovation. Attendees of Mostra Convegno Expocomfort are invited to experience these cutting-edge products firsthand at Panasonic's booth (Stand A29+B12, Hall 5).


R290, a natural refrigerant, minimises environmental impact while simultaneously enhancing energy efficiency and comfort. With an impressively low Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 3, R290 emerges as a green alternative suitable for both residential and commercial projects, delivering exceptional performance without compromising environmental responsibility. Heat pump efficiency increases with the use of R290 as it enables a maximum water outlet temperature of 75°C, widening the applications of water-based heating solutions range from 5 kW to 80 kW, and can boost capacity up to 640 kW with cascade control.


This initiative aligns seamlessly with Panasonic's Environmental Vision 2050, aiming to significantly reduce CO2 emissions and overall environmental footprint. By harnessing the power of R290, Panasonic is actively contributing to the realisation of a carbon-neutral society, where energy efficiency surpasses consumption.


The integration of R290 extends across a spectrum of heating and cooling solutions, including the Aquarea L and M Series, as well as the ECOi-W AQUA-G BLUE heat pumps.


Aquarea L Series – Engineered for high efficiency, the Aquarea L Series heat pumps feature Hydro Split All-in-One High Performance units, boasting water outlet temperatures of up to 75°C down to -10°C. Designed for versatility, these heat pumps offer outstanding efficiency with a SCOP of up to 5.12, along with reduced sound levels for enhanced comfort.


Aquarea T-CAP M Series – The newest addition to the Aquarea lineup, the M Series introduces a modular concept for increased application flexibility. The T-CAP units come in 9, 12, 16 kW, and have now been expanded to include even bigger capacities – 20, 25 and 30 kW. Combining the high capacities, 75°C water outlet even at -15°C outdoor temperature, and T-CAP technology, this an unbeatable solution for centralised heating in multifamily buildings and retrofit commercial applications.


ECOi-W AQUA-G BLUE – Catering to the demands of large-scale applications, the ECOi-W AQUA-G BLUE heat pump utilises R290 to provide energy-efficient solutions for commercial, industrial, and multi-dwelling residential projects. With up to 70°C leaving water temperature, it is an energy-efficient solution for domestic hot water for various project requirements, such as residential and commercial buildings. The ECOi-W AQUA-G BLUE solution covers capacities from 50 kW up to 80 kW, with the possibility to boost it until 640 kW in a cascade system.
