MHI Q-ton provides high temperature hot water solution with ultra-low GWP CO2

Factors driving heat pumps in Europe

As countries throughout Europe work to reach aggressive environmental goals in the next decade, many organisations are looking for new technologies to help them become carbon neutral.

Heat pumps are an ideal renewable technology for application across the commercial sector, including hospitality and multi-residential applications. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air-Conditioning Europe is ahead of the curve with its long-standing commercial water heating product – Q-ton. Capable of producing hot water between 60oC and 90oC, it is an ideal replacement for combined heat and power products. Q-ton is also attractive for European planning initiatives due to its ability to negate operational limitations for Nitrogen Oxide.

A 30 kW modular heat pump system, Q-ton operates with the ultra-low global warming potential refrigerant, CO2 and has excellent operational efficiencies certifications. It is capable of producing 90oC hot water, even at -25oC ambient temperatures and more importantly, suffers no loss in capacity down to -7oC.

In addition to low operational costs, Q-ton offers BREEAM building assessment design points and Microgeneration Certification Scheme feedback tariff opportunities.

Utilizing a world-first 2-stage CO2 compressor design, Q-ton makes it possible to provide space heating, cooling and hot water.
