Mitsubishi Electric offers 1081kW of chiller for next-day delivery

Mitsubishi Electric has added new 150kW and 180kW modules to its existing advanced range of high efficiency, inverter-driven, e-series modular chillers to expand its the ‘off-the-shelf’ offering to the UK market.

The e-series offers marketleading low noise levels, which is increasingly important in innercity installations.

They also have exceptional part-load efficiencies with an operating range between 8% and 100% capacity to provide controllable, energy efficient cooling and heating with reduced plant size and a host of advanced features and benefits taken straight from the company’s experience in the air conditioning industry.

Available as cooling-only or heat pump versions, the new modules included a unique Y-shaped design to increase the intake of air and offer a greater heat exchanger surface area, delivering a highly efficient operation.

With four inverter compressors operating as two pairs in each module and the ability to connect up to 6 individual modules into one system, the e-series chillers provide the perfect solution.

“We’ve had significant interest in these modular units since we launched the e-series three years ago and these larger modules expand the number of applications and buildings that can benefit from these advanced chillers” explains Graham Temple, Mitsubishi Electric marketing manager.

The new chiller units have an even smaller footprint than the existing 90kW e-series modules and each slim unit can be positioned in a bank of up to six connected units using the same internal header, saving on piping space and equipment costs.

This also allows for smaller plant space and easier servicing than traditional chillers.

The models deliver marketleading levels of efficiency with a Seasonal Efficiency Energy Rating (SEER) of up to 4.62 and the ability for units to operate on their own or in tandem with others. They are also easy to integrate with a BEMS.

With full rotation and back-up function available, the operating time for each module in the same system can be equalised to prolong operating life and performance.

“When you compare the UK market to the Japanese market, which is dominated by modular inverter-driven systems, you can see that the UK is heading for high performing, low carbon solutions that can also help reduce space requirements”, adds Temple.
