Hitachi invests in testing
Hitachi has made a major investment in its factory in Spain to provide increased capability to meet European market demand. It includes building a new state-of-the-art calorifier to test multi-split systems to the ISO 15042 and EN 14511 standard. The new equipment will be used for testing air-conditioning units up to 20 hp, including VRF and multi-spit systems, with cooling capacities up to 56 kW and heating up to 63 kW.
The new calorimeter can test air-conditioning units at full capacity and in multiple operation. Its temperature range is from -30 to 46°C, accommodating all European climate conditions.
Kenichi Munakata, president of Hitachi Air Conditioning Europe SAS, said, ‘The considerable investment in testing equipment will enable Hitachi to give customers the peace of mind and satisfaction that comes with having easy access to quality products.
