Panasonic Expands Portfolio to Include Hydronic and Rooftop Product Ranges


Panasonic Heating & Cooling Solutions has expanded its portfolio of high-quality HVAC solutions to offer a wide choice to suit a variety of commercial and industrial applications. The portfolio includes air-cooled and water-cooled chillers and heat pumps, fan coil units, water source heat pumps, and rooftop units.

The comprehensive range provides a fully customisable design and offers an ideal solution for a multitude of projects.  The expanded series consists of:

·       Air cooled chillers, heat pumps and condensing units - ECOi-W range

Panasonic’s hydronic systems offer comfort and high efficiency by using outdoor air as the source of energy transfer with capacities ranging from 20 kW up to 1,240 kW.

The range includes the ECOi-W AQUA G Blue, which opens up more choices of refrigerant as it utilizes R290, a natural refrigerant with a very low Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 3. Alongside the lower environmental impact when released into the atmosphere, the AQUA G Blue boasts a high seasonal performance value with a maximum SEER 4,4[1] and SCOP 3,9[2], and has an impressive energy efficiency rating of A++[3].

·       Water cooled chillers, heat pumps and condenser-less units - ECOi-W range

The systems ensure quality and comfort for any project, providing cold or hot water to water terminals, using water from an open or closed circuit as the source of energy transfer. This range works with R513A or R410A refrigerants. Capacities range from 20 kW up to an impressive 1,650 kW.

The ECOi-W range is equipped with different technologies, such as scroll and screw compressors, and different types of refrigerants. It also covers a wide application temperature from as low as -15°C for process cooling and up to 20°C to maintain IT cooling for sever rooms and data centres. Depending on the requirements of the installation site, ECOi-W ranges can be a flexible solution in several applications such as housing estates, hotels, and hospitals.

·       Fan coil units

A large range of fan coil units dedicated to energy savings, comfort, flexibility and quality. Available as cassette, ducted, floor, ceiling or wall-mounted units that offer a comfortable environment combined with the ECOi-W range of outdoor units.

·       Water source heat pumps 

The new heat pumps feature a water loop system which enables distributed cooling and heating production at different temperatures with a single water circuit. The recovery of heat energy from the units in cooling mode can be used for units in heating and vice-versa, thus providing a balanced and highly efficient system. Ideal for best-in-class hotels, offices, or shopping centres. This solution offers improved comfort by having several different indoor climates inside a building, while maintaining the energy through an internal closed water loop.

 ·       Rooftop units

Rooftop units provide a complete mono-bloc solution to heat and cool large buildings and supply fresh air to places such as shopping centres, industrial sites or airports that require high capacities. It’s an easy to install, space saving solution, fitted directly on the roof or close to a building. Capacities range from 50 kW up to 220 kW.

Panasonic’s AC SELECT is an online selection software that offers a quick and easy tool to specify all the hydronic ranges and rooftops at required conditions, allowing users to choose and configure their ideal solution.
